    Hello,

    I jailbroke my mate's ipod touch and it put a name on the ipod touch that he doesn't want. Is there anyway to change the ipod's name without restoring it?

    Thanks,

    jT

    double click the name under devices in itunes
    then it will become highlighted and u can rename it
    if u still dont get it send it to my house and ill ship it back
    maybe we can trade u give me urs to rename and ill give u mine to put jailbreak and iphone games on there

    hey,

    are you talking about in the upper left hand corner on the ipt?
    If so, those are image files... they are actually your carrier.
    There are several posts on how to change that.

    If you can find it post back and Ill look it up for you

    Goodluck

    Unfortunately that just changes the name of the synced device, not the name "ipod" in the upper left-hand corner.

    I believe Apple is the only one that can change the iPod's name.

    iPod touch
    iPod nano
    iPod shuffle

    See what I mean, Apple came up with all the names. I'm sorry but, you cannot re-name your iPod... it must stay as "iPod touch".

    Changing the name on ipod touch

    Hello,

    I think what you are referring to is the name that appears on the top when you go to Settings->General->About. If so, the way I changed mine was by connecting my ipod to my computer and opening up itunes. Your ipod will show up under devices. You can double click the name of your ipod and it will allow you to change it.

    Just double click on the name. Think windows (double-click) and you can rename your iphone/ipod on itunes in Mac.
