iPod Touch 2g doesn't play music
« on: April 25, 2013, 02:37:26 AM »
I've seen online, that people that downgraded to 2.2.1 (I'm on 3.1.3 and im MB) fixes the issue where when you play music it just stops each time you click play? Does anyone have this issue or could guide me on how to fix this? Everytime I try to downgrade I get error 20. Im not sure how to make a custom ipsw either :/

I don't think you can downgrade the 2G past 3.1.3 :/   

As for the stopping when you click play, was music playing already when you pressed play?

Music was not playing, Ill press play after I restored and synced and itll just stop and the play button will appear again. Ah this sucks so much.. But still how did people downgrade then?! I see it on youtube in comments, and one in the apple forum

Downgrading to 2.2.1 is silly, you won't have any apps compatible :(

Maybe upgrading to 4.2.1 would help though ;)

One thing, do you restore your device to a backup in iTunes when you restore?  That can cause issues with jailbreaks a lot of the time (not just whited00r).

That is really odd, it makes me think something was messed up on your system, because after restores the problem shouldn't be there :o  that is why I asked if you restored from  a backup at all, because it is possible the backup got corrupted :/

Yeah thats the thing, I never restored it to a backup, I used a 3.1.3 IPSW that I downloaded :P but I still think theres an issue the ipod doesnt detect my headphones but it plays through the headphones/external speaker I gotta go to a third party repair shop

If it didn't detect the headphones I don't think it would stop though :o  It might be a loose connection in the headphones where the automatic stop kicks in when it detects it is unplugged, but I don't know if downgrading to 2.2.1 would fix that if that was the cause :o

Okay, the original problem was that it never played music. By downgrading to 2.2.1 it plays music now. But it comes out through the external speakers as well as the headphones at the same time. When I use the volume rockers it shows up as speakers. So it plays through both, but it doesn't detect the headphone jack

That does sound like a hardware issue :( (which is what you said about taking it to a third party fixing place right?)

For that price in the U.S you could just buy a new 2G :o
