@taufik - if you have forgotten your password, you'll need to sync it up to your computer to reset it. This may require erasing the iPod.

@Hi - the battery is soldered to the logic board so it isn't something we cover in this video as it does require some expertise. If you don't have any soldering experience, I would recommend having it done professionally or replacing the logic board.

Hi, what about battery removing?

There is nothing about dissembling battery and placing new one.

@Christopher - it is hard to say. It could be a faulty battery getting too hot or some of the chips on the logic board are coming loose.

My Ipod Touch 5th gen is having overheating issues. Any idea what may be the cause of this right off hand?

@win - most likely. Your best bet may be to find someone selling a dead logic board or dead ipod and harvest it yourself. We may eventually sell them if we ever get an abundance of bad boards, but no ETA on that.
