    if i do anything with my jailbroken (greenp0isn) ipod touch 2g 4.2.1 and then make it sleep it would cutoff and the only way to make it come back on is to hold the home && sleep buttons. but this happens every time and it get annoying.

    Try a restore and see if that helps. If not, you're probably in the same boat as a lot of people with 2G iPod Touches with the hardware failing.

    If it doesn't work, it may be time to buy a new iPod. I would recommend taking it to the Apple store and see what they say. The more people that take their busted 2G iPods into Apple the better. Apple will see that there's a high number of problems with the 2G, and maybe, perhaps, they'll find something inherently wrong with it, and everyone gets a free replacement! :D

    Seriously?

    Did you even take the time to think about what you wrote?

    Yes. If the problem is well documented, Apple will investigate. But they won't know if the problem exists if people don't take them into the store and complain. How do you think Apple find out about all the other problems - batteries, screen flicker, etc.?

    The warranty of all ipod touch 2g already expired. The manufacturer(Apple) only backs up their porduct for a certain amount of time( 1 year). At this point Apple has no interest for furthering ipod touch 2g's lifespan(hence the fact that firmware updates even ended at 4.2)

    After all this you think Apple would try and fix the problems of a device that came out 4 years ago AND provide people with a replacement?

    WOW....

    I don't know where you are, but under European law, if a product is sold with an inherent fault, the manufacturer must replace it, regardless of whether it is in or out of warranty. And Apple have been known to voluntarily replace parts (outside of Europe) which they know there have been faults with, well past the 1 year warranty - such as batteries and hard disks.

    All discussion is moot then.

    i restored the ipod but it only worked untill it goes to sleep then it goes black.

    i have restore my previous ipod touch before and these are some thing that never happen while restoring those ipods that happen with this ipod.

    the little bar that loads while you restore goes slower than the one on the computer.
    after itunes say its done the ipod still be loading.
    i still get the recovery screen but with the battery and i took a picture by holding the hold & power buttons then after i noticed that i could do that i moved my finger across the screen like i was unlocking it and it unlock and looked normal then i press the sleep button and it never came back on.
