    :mad::mad:Ok this is just getting super annoying This is the second time today ( about 11 times total ) that I have to restore my ipod after the 2.0 update. Now I am trying to install an app and it has been sitting on installing for the past 4 hours. Anyone else getting Po'd with 2.0? And on top of all of that my ipod is getting very very hot.:mad::mad:

    first off, chill. take a break, and come back to it.

    with the installing thing, that happens to me too, just let it be, of open up the app store, where it may prompt you for a password, enter it, and they will install

    I don't get why so many people are having problems with the 2.0 software. I've had no hang ups with the software at all and in my opinion is greatly improved over 1.1.4. I've only had 3rd party apps crash a couple of times but that is not Apple's fault, its the developers.

    Once I was able to get the 2.0 update, I have had no problems. Interesting.

    I've had to restore about 5 times so far too, and it takes ages since I have a 32gb with lots of movies and apps and stuff. And since backing up takes hours I rarely do it, so lose all my game data :(

    When you restore, if you keep having problems then make sure the next time you restore you do not restore from a back up, and instead start completely new and fresh. You'll lose all your settings, but sometimes problems persist and live on through your back ups. Then if you still keep having problems after that, I'd contact Apple.

    That is pretty much what I have been doing setting it up as a new iPod. But it still keeps happening.:(

    Im having exactly the same sort of problems and I'm equally annoyed. I'm hoping the next update will resolve some of them.

    The crashes always revolve around updating/installing apps.

    Mine restarts itself like 3 times a day. Wastes my batteries rather quickly not to mention the already short life caused by using apps. :mad::mad::mad::mad:

    As several others have said, since I upgraded my 32 GB Touch to 2.0 I have had very few problems. Web browsing with Safari works much better and pages load faster than in 1.1.4. I have been able to load and update apps via Wi-Fi, and I rarely get crashes back to the home screen any more. The only app that gives me problems occasionally is AP Mobile News, as it quits once in a while. Make sure you read the reviews on any apps you want to buy to see if the users report any instability. I would avoid those apps until they are updated. I've also found that almost filling your iPod with music and videos seems to increase instability when using certain apps, especially those that use Wi-Fi. I suspect it has something to do with decreased available memory.
