Keeping your iPod Touch running

On October 10, 2008, in General, by Neil Stevens

Since I got my iPod Touch, I’ve had problems with it crashing hard, and requiring a total restore from backup. At first I ass umed it was the leather case I kept it in, but no. Then I thought it was due to heat just from using it a lot going out, but no.

No action I took kept the occasional crashes from happening, which is annoying. I hate to go to use it, and find it needs to sit for a half hour or more to reset, reinstall the firmware, restore my backup, then copy all my music and videos back onto it. That’s unacceptable.

I finally last week or so figured out the solution: It’s been crashing when I lay it face up on a flat table and recharge. The heat builds up. So I went and got a a dock/alarm clock that stores the iPod vertically. Sitting upright, the metal back is exposed to the air, thus letting it cool.

No crashes since.
