His iPod Touch 4G is jailbroken, and its running 6.1. When you try to use the touch screen, it will not respond to any input. The volume, sleep, and home button work just fine though.

Bad digitizer. Has it been dropped?

Well there ya go. Open it up and check all the connections if you're handy with that sort of thing, but be warned, it's a PITA; it's epoxied together and very delicate.

Also, the fact that it's been dropped is extremely relevant and should have been included in the original question, don't you think? It's like calling a mechanic and saying "my car is making a funny noise and I don't know why," only to say later, after questioning, that you filled the gas tank with kerosene.

Hahaha, sorry man. My friend told me it had been dropped after I posted this question. I am good at taking apart iDevices, so should I go and buy a new screen that comes with a digitizer?
