I was just running an app on my iPod touch, but then this happened:

Does anyone know what happened? I did not drop it or anything like that.

looks like it crashed. tried holding both buttons for 12 secs then trying to boot it ?

Held down both buttons, nothing happened. Also, the app seemed to fade into the screen.

That does not look good. Does iTunes recognize it?

It might be dead. Is it in warranty?

(08 Jul '13, 20:01) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

Again, no. Even if I did go to apple to get it fixed, they wouldn't, since it's jailbroken.

(08 Jul '13, 20:01) hithere231 hithere231's gravatar image

If it's toast, they have no way of knowing it's jailbroken unless you tell them, but it's moot anyway if it's not in warranty.

(08 Jul '13, 20:05) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

It's moot? Sorry, but what does that mean?

(08 Jul '13, 20:06) hithere231 hithere231's gravatar image

Irrelevant, inapplicable.

(08 Jul '13, 20:21) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

Oh. Well, I guess my iPod died.. :(

(08 Jul '13, 20:24) hithere231 hithere231's gravatar image

Yeah, looks that way. That sucks.

(08 Jul '13, 20:30) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

Oh well... I think it was hardware failure.

(08 Jul '13, 20:33) hithere231 hithere231's gravatar image

Wait.. I've looked around on the internet, and people have had the same problems. Some people suggested to wait until the battery dies, and charge it then. Should I try this?

(08 Jul '13, 22:04) hithere231 hithere231's gravatar image

It's worth a shot, certainly can't hurt it.

(08 Jul '13, 22:23) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

Okay. Hopefully it works.. I love this thing.

(08 Jul '13, 22:32) hithere231 hithere231's gravatar image

Yes! It worked! :D This question is solved now. Please lock it.

(09 Jul '13, 00:08) hithere231 hithere231's gravatar image

It did? Wow, never would've thought...
