    Okay, I have the IPod Touch 30GB first gen with the O.S. software version 3.1.3.

    Recently, many of the apps have decided to no longer work. What happens is simple really:
    1.I touch to open an application and it acts like it load, for example the AP news ap, it will show the load screen for a moment and then close the program entirely instantly. This happens to all third party apps.

    2.I have tried to restore the Ipod, that did not fix the issue.

    Solutions other than buying a new iPod Touch???

    Oh one more thing: I have never tried to jail break I believe is the term, the ipod touch I own.

    Have you tried DFU mode? You might want to try that.

    Also, chance are many apps are incompatible with that firmware.

    It's entirely possible that it won't help, but it's helped before with problems such as this. It doesn't matter that it say it's for iPhone, it can be used for Touches too.

    Okay, just got done trying DFU mode. Then tried a third party app and again, the same problem is in place.

    Next idea/suggestion? Thanks again for the help.

    Have you tried more than one app? It might just be that one app.

    Hm, okay. Click the "restoring your iOS device" sentence and follow Apple's instructions.

    What version of ios are u running?

    Sorry missed the 3.1.

    Most apps won't work with 3.1 if they have been updated to support ios5

    Tried that already, didn't work/fix the issue rather.

    And as stated before to the person below you: I have the IPod Touch 30GB first gen with the O.S. software version 3.1.3.

    Sorry. The only thing I can think of is to restore from new, but then you would lose all your save data on your apps, and have to sync everything again. You might try that as a last resort, because someone else might have more viable options.

    Okay...How do I do that? I don't care about losing stuff at all.

    Ooops, just realized I tried that earlier, I'm doing it again anyway to give it another go. We'll see =D
