Forgive me if this issue has been addressed elsewhere; I've googled as best I could but the nature of the issue makes it difficult to pinpoint a specific answer. I've noticed that, since upgrading my iPod Touch (2nd Generation, 32GB) firmware to 3.1.2, the iPod no longer allows me to play my own music within an application. Previously, it was possible to hit the 'home' button twice in quick succession to bring up the music menu, and from there it was possible to begin playing music again from within the app, even if the app had shut down the music player. Since 3.1.2, this is no longer possible. I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that this is a standard issue built into the 3.1 firmware, so I'm not asking if there's anything wrong with my iPod, I'm just curious to know if anyone has figured out a workaround or a fix for this particular annoyance, without having to revert back to 3.0 or jailbreaking. Many thanks for any thoughts / suggestions / insights.
