    I would've recommended force power down, but seeing how you broke the power button that's not longer possible...So it's 100% frozen? No hardware buttons work? I guess you just gotta let it die then...

    ...so let it die. Stuff it under a pillow, cover it with blankets, anything to stop the sound.

    Not really relevant but you can't have a third generation iPod touch at only eight gigs. That's a second gen. Third gen is just like second but has thirty-two or sixty-four gigs I believe.

    3rd comes in 8, 32, and 64 officially killing the 16gb mark. The 32 and 64 versions came with a bit of a boost making the 8gb most like the 2nd gen.


    My advice is to download sn0wbreeze or something and try to force a reboot. Other than that, let it die.

    I think considering its state its already bricked but you won't get a warranty replacement. The 3rd Gens are all at least 2 years old now.
