    Default iPod nano has a Secret Diagnostic Mode


    It would seem the latest iPod nano models have a secret diagnostic screen dubbed “iTerm.” This screen allows users to test various features of the iPod nano, such as: the power, audio, remote, TV Out, LCD, IO, FM receiver, memory, the touch panel and accelerometer. You navigate this screen using the Sleep/Wake and Volume buttons.

    There is also a Disk Mode that when activated allows the nano to appear as an external USB disk when connected to a computer. You’ll know you are in Disk Mode when the nano’s screen turns from its usual color to a retro-looking black and white screen reminiscent of earlier-model iPods.

    It is quite easy to activate either the diagnostic or the disc mode: First, reset the iPod nano by holding down the Sleep/Wake button and Volume Down button until the Apple logo appears. Then:
    • To enter Diagnostic Mode: Reset iPod and continue to hold down all three buttons. “iTerm: iPod Display Console” will flash briefly on screen.
    • To enter Disk Mode: Reset iPod and hold down both Volume buttons.



    The sixth generation iPod nano carries a new codename that appears at the top of the “iTerm” screen, N20 Snowfox. The last generation iPod nano had a similar codename: N33 GreatDane. Also held over from the last iPod nano model is a hibernation mode that puts the device into a low-power mode after 14 hours of inactivity.

    These diagnostic screens are nothing new for iPods, but it does give users a closer look at the way Apple designs and tests its iconic products. This new information is not terribly useful for the average iPod nano user, but it is rather cool to see a little bit of what’s under the hood.

    What could the TVout be used for???

    I was unaware that an ipod of any sort was capable of a TvOut by default, since none of my iPhones have had it without a Jailbreak.

    Don't get smart!! How does the nano have a way/output for tv out without a jailbreak? I've never owned one, nor have I seen one in person. My question "WAS", what capabilities does it have for a TVout?? Please forgive me if i don't understand. I don't own EVERY device apple sells. Quick question F'N Ferry.... Does the iPhone or iPad have a TvOut option w/out Jailbreak???

    That's what i was getting at..... Not a simple answer, as YOU'R simple mind replied to.

    Yes, there's a cable to connect you iPod touch, iPhone or iPad to the TV. I use it all the time to watch films. Don't are what use it would be on an iPod that can only play music, but maybe it's just for the audio.

    Now stop flaming!

    Thanks for a simple answer without a lot of poor grammar and sarcasm, like the rest of these idiots. I appreciate the information. Like I said. I've never owned an iPod. Just didn't see how it would be possible.

    It's so GREAT to see someone post something, who thinks they know it all. However their post doesn't even make sense. PLEASE read what you write before you post!!! It makes you look a LOT more intelligent than you try to appear.

    Sort of something like this:
    The Component version-
    Apple Component AV Cable - Apple Store (U.S.)
    or this, the Composite version-
    Apple Composite AV Cable - Apple Store (U.S.)
    (You can as well just read that page and the questions & answers on it and it should answer most of your questions on this subject...)

    And maybe the reason you got a simple answer was because well, your question was to broad as well...
    What could the TVout be used for???
    You Know You Want to Hit It...[Thanks!]
