    I have had my ipod touch ( 3.1.3 i think?) for a little under a year (february 2010). shortly after getting it i jb it. just this week it has started glitching hardcore . the screen is completely non responsive 99% of the time. the actual ipod seems fine (not frozen). if i leeve the ipod alone for a couple hours it works for about 15 seconds but then starts goin stupid and opens applications by itself and what not and then once again goes completely non responsive.

    can i fix this myself ?

    Plug into iTunes > Click iPod in the sidebar > Restore

    If that fixes it, woohoo!

    If not, take it to the Apple store.

    Im not too clear on EXACTLY how to do it, but im sure you hold down the sleep button and the home button together for 10-12 seconds where your screen should now be completely black. You are now in DFU mode. If you get any sort of message such as the "connect to itunes" or the "apple" logo, you aren't in DFU mode. Just retry the steps or google it XD haha, hope it helped.

    Connect iPod to the computer with the syncing cable,

    Hold home and power for 10 seconds, (slide to power off), and hold the power for 10 more seconds until the screen goes blank.

    You have now put your iPod into DFU mode/restore.

    NOTE: Sometimes this will not work if you have a passcode set up, so in the iPod go to settings>general>passcode lock(on)

    It will ask to you enter your current passcode, and then it should take the passcode lock off.
