A friend recently told me that if you update your iPod’s firmware, you will notice a drastic improvement in its battery life. As usual, I set out on some quick research before going for the upgrade. Turns out there is some merit to this claim and I did the restore yesterday (they say you should go for Restore rather than Upgrade). Let’s see if I get any improvements.
Some more research today revealed there’s a method to bring back your iPod’s performance from 1-2 hours right back to its original 8 hours. The writer holds no responsibility if you mess it up but says you don’t have much to lose if your iPod is only giving you an hour’s worth of performance, which is true.
