Why does my iPod touch say "can not connect to youtube" when I try to launch youtube?

Asked by atr408 (357points) May 15th, 2008 from iPhone

i jailbroke my iPod to v1.1.4 earlier today and youtube was working fine. Then my battery was low so I charged it and then about 2 hours later I came back and tried to go on youtube but it wasnt working. Why?

have you tried turning it off and on again?

Many times. They have a patch in the installer thing. They actualy have 3 patches. I’ve used them all numerous times. still doesn’t work. I would be understanding if it didnt work from the begining, but it did work. Then a while later it stopped working. Frustrating.

what kind of patch are you talking about, a firmware update from apple or a 3rd party patch?

Bsilver's avatar

if it’s a patch from within installer on a jailbroken iPod touch, it’s third party.

I don’t know if the iPod touch has an “airplane mode” like the iPhone, but have you tried turning wifi off, turning it back on, then trying to connect again? Sometimes I have the same issue on my iPhone, and turning on and off airplane mode helps.
If all else fails, you could always restore your iPod, then jailbreak it again

don’t jailbreak

it can lead to problems down the road. It basically just screws up your iPod. All my friends did it and they regret it. Just wait for the June update it’ll be worth it.

go to your setting and look at the internet connection to see if it has a check.If it does than go to the main menu screen and look at the top left hand corner to see if its bars are full.If not than youtube wont work.
