Have you had any severe software problems with your iTouch? Did you solve them? Where did you find information?
Here are some of the problems I've experienced:
Trying to do a hard reset (hold Sleep/Wake while pressing Home till Apple icon appears) my device got stuck on the Apple icon screen. It refused to reboot, like it was stuck in an infinite loop. Eventually the battery would drain. I posted my problem on Apple support forum, and someone directed me an obscure Apple webpage that listed an weird procedure to "reboot". The method as described didn't work precisely, but I found a variation that eventually got me to a "Restore iPod?" dialog box in iTunes. From there I was able to fix the problem.
My settings icon disappeared! I could still get to settings using the search function, but no more icon. I eventually wiped and restored from backup.
In Safari, I am unable to save a bookmark as an icon on the home screen. I don't know why this option has disappeared from my device--it is still shown in the operator's manual.
How about you?
