    lately my ipod has been acting up, like it freezes sometimes or the screen turns purple, or it glitches, freezes for a second then back to normal, then it does it again. most of this happens when im on apps, so is it the software or is my ipod getting old? (ive had it for about 4 years this year)

    If restoring (not from a backup) doesn't fix your problem, yes it's probably hardware related. A good excuse to treat yourself to a latest gen iPod touch if you ask me :cool:

    DFU then restore as NEW, don't use backups.
