my ipod touch 4g is behaving weirdly from 2 days
i charged it 100 at night and by morning it is dead and when i plugged to power, it started with 30 % and after 5 mins it went to 50% battery. i unplugged and in 2 hours its on 17 % and the battery keeps switching between numbers (21% to 27% to 16%). will this be a battery hardware issue or should i try reset and will it help ?

Dell XPS, Windows 7

    I would try in order:
    - reset
    Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the
    Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - restore from backup
    - restore to factory defaults
    If those do not work I would take it to an Apple Genius Bar or call AppleCare since it would appear to be a hardware problem.

    Take it back to Apple for a full refund!

    As I replied in another of your replies the link relates to updating iOS4 on older iPod not for the new 3G iPod.

    While I can appreciate the frustration some are having with their Touch's battery life after upgrading to 4.1, this issue is not universal. I upgraded my wife's 3rd gen Touch to 4.1 when it became available. No noticeable change in battery life noted (Wireless on most of the time). My Grandson has a 4th gen Touch where actual battery life is as advertised. I would note that some of the "writeups" on the imminent 4.2 release seem to indicate a fix for wireless and battery problems. Hopefully these fixes solve this issue for all.
