IOS 6.0.1 wiped my itunes library and left it inoperable.  It also made the battery life so bad that it is unusable unless plugged in. This even occurs when the ipod is in airplane mode. Anybody ideas?

    Try:

    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost

    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - Power off and then back on the router

    - Reset network settings: Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings

    - iOS: Troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks and connections

    - iOS: Recommended settings for Wi-Fi routers and access points

    - Restore from backup

    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.

    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

    Well those are all great suggestions but no dice on any of them. I think the restore from back up actually made the problem worse. Now, when the ipod auto-lock the device shuts down, which means a long restart when you turn it back on. Plus the inetrnet is super slow. This more like a virus than an update. Maybe someone will know how to restor the device back to the previous version. I hope so because I have an expensive brick now.

    Downgrading the IOS is not supported by Apple.

    Have you tried

     

    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.

    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

    Yep, I restoreed to factory setting and that didn't help. The Genius Bar isn't an option for me. It doesn't look like there is anything that can be done unless Apple released an update that fixes the issue. I can't see them doing tha anytime soon though. Well I appreciate the help. I really do. I'm off to search for a replacement for this device. It wouldn't make sense to by another apple product though. Thanks again.
