i am going mad, i update my ipod to 3.1.3 because of supposed battery fixes, not only did it not do anything beneficial, it actually made it worse, among other things.
i now have gone from a battery life of a couple of days (general usage) to hours, and thats not all, the wifi has also stopped working completely, i see others having difficulties connecting, fact of the matter, its the update.
now thanks to apples wisdom, they have stopped signing making it near impossible to downgrade.

i know what your thinking, "oh he just wants to be able to jailbreak", 30 seconds of searching the internet for a downgrade would tell you that, if i had jailbroken my ipod, i wouldn't have a problem. thats correct, i and many others are being stopped from having fully functioning ipods ind iphones because of downgrades that are available only to those who don't play by the rules.

i ask you, how do i downgrade without jail breaking before updating?

just an afterthought, you (apple) really seem to have dropped the ball on this one.

    You don't.

    ", you (apple) really seem to have dropped the ball on this one."

    You are NOT addressing Apple here, This is a user forum. Apple has a feedback link. If you want Apple to see your rant, you can leave it there:

    Have you tried reset, restore to try and correct your issues?

    I have the same battery life problems since 3.1.3.

    Battery life on wifi is around 1 hour and 30 min. Playing music 3 hours. Using youtube is only 30 min or less.

    Does anyone have any suggestion or idea what can I do to fix it?

    Plug your touch into iTunes and click the Restore button. Generally you can restore from the backup but if that doesn't work, restore as new.

    On a similar note ... I upgraded my ipod, thinking nothing of it. I usually upgrade ... but when I went to plug in my ipod touch 32 GB 3G into my (used-to-be-compatible) car stereo, it didn't work. I'm VERY upset.
