Has iOS 5 increased memory demands and crocked my iPod Touch?

    Hey folks,

    This is my first time posting outside of the Mac threads. I feel oddly out-of-place here...!

    Anyway, my problem: I've been without internet access for several months (long story), came home last night and went online, and was offered an update for my third-generation iPod Touch when I connected it to my MBP. I agreed.

    My iPod's album-navigation has completely died. When I hold it in the landscape position, I used to be able to leaf smoothly through my albums; but now, the animation jams and stutters, the album art looks slightly pixelated, and if I push my luck with it, the screen goes black and it crashes back to the 'root' screen.

    Has iOS 5 increased memory demands? My album art is very high-def (as in, 1500x1500-plus), because the companion computer used to be a 27" iMac, so it would've looked crap at 400x400. Is this my problem? Have memory demands gone up, and now my beautiful album art is giving my iPod a breakdown?!

    I would add that the iPod still works, in that it plays music and audiobooks. But this still pisses me off. Any advice would be welcome.

    What generation iPod Touch do you have? Older models will run slower on iOS 5 because they don't have the processing power to handle it the way the newer generation hardware does.
