    Yes, return it and get a new one. Sorry to be blunt, but why hassle with it. Just get it replaced.

    Yep I think that's the only logical solution pal.......but I'd jailbrocken the iPod once ....... I then had to restore it and it was fine before the problems started again.......does my warranty still hold good????

    Welcome to the forums, arvind!

    If you restored it it's not likely that Apple knows it used to be Jailbroken.

    The home button is one of the rare mechanical buttons on the Touch. It's possible that you've got a mechanical defect instead of a software defect. A mechanical defect won't be fixed with software/firmware/restores, whatever.

    Take your Touch back and get a new one. Yours is most likey defective within warranty.
