How to fix some mysterious problems.

ok so i dont know when i jailbroke my ipod, think it was 3 or 4 days ago. when i first jailbroke it i didnt have this issue. last night i started noticing my battery was being severely drained. it would be at 59% and shoot all the way down to 35% and everywhere in between and all i was doing was downloading packages and using safari for about 10minutes. before i went to bed last night i uninstalled all the packages i downloaded and removed the sources i added and put it on charge, now today i woke up and took it off of charge was at 100% then went to 97%. didnt do anything to it, all i did was take it off charge. went to take a shower, come back 15mins later and the battery was at 89%.

ive read that greenpois0n is the problem. everybody that jailbreaks with it has a battery problem. i dont think i remember reading a problem like this with redsn0w.

i wanted to restore my ipod back to just plain 4.2.1 not jailbroken at all but itunes wont let me. i get an error 3194.

so i guess my main questions are...

is there a fix for this battery problem?

how do i restore my ipod back to regular 4.2.1 not jailbroken?

Not worth troubleshooting or restoring to 4.2.1, just restore/update to 4.3.2 and then jailbreak with Redsn0w 0.9.6rc14
