    Hi.. a have a problem with my ipod touch 1st gen., maybe you can help me.

    i have an ipod touch 1st gen with firmware 3.0 and jailbreak.. ad the problem i have is that when i connect it to charge.. it start charging but it stop at 65%.. it doesnt full charge... the icon battery with the green color that show the charge, only reach a little more than half.. and the little icon on the right corner of the top.

    if i disconnect it and connect it again.. it start charging but stop again..

    it mean that the battery is dead? or maybe is a problem with the firmware..

    i will like to hear from you.. thanks.

    note: i have tried in 3 differents computers and is the same.

    I would try restoring your iPod's firmware to at least a non-Jailbreaked (Jailbroken?) firmware, perhaps even an earlier version, to see what happens. Restoring your firmware can sometimes help; you can probably try Jailbreaking again if it works after restoring and you want to try again.

    In a similar discussion on another forum (although related to 2.0, not 3.0), someone recommended what appears to be reinstalling Bonjour. I really doubt that this would help, but perhaps it's not what it appears to be.
    Again, I don't think that would have anything to do with it (and nobody ever responded saying if it did or didn't work), but I suppose it's worth a shot.

    And if nothing works and it's still under warranty (and it's not Jailbreak-ed), you can take it to Apple. Good luck!

    Change the battery, that's what i did on my iphone 2g.
    You can one and a kit for it on amazon cheap, and watch a tutorial video on youtube.
