What causes iPod touch to freeze and require reboot?


This question is archived. No new answers are allowed, and only the question's owner may edit it.

Out of 15 or so iPod touches I have fixed, I have one that has two issues. First is it freezes up sometimes when you leave it sit or let it "sleep". When I try to wake it up, it does nothing. If I reboot it via power button + home, it boots and works fine. The second issue is related to the wifi/apps. I can load all web pages, youtube etc fine via web browser, but if I try to play any youtube videos via app or web browser it says that it can't play the video.

I have done the following to this ipod touch:

  • Replaced digitizer (orignal user failed to replace correctly, they sold it on ebay to me)
  • Rebooted via power/home for ~10 secs several times now
  • Restore via itunes
  • Restore via recovery mode

Have not done a restore via DFU yet.
