    My semi-solution to iPod clickwheel freezing.
    So, over the past 5-6 months, I think I have had a total of 5 clickwheel freezes.
    I decided to record my solution every time I managed to fix it.
    This is what I have come up with:

    {Solution 1}
    -Leave iPod alone for about 2 days.
    -Turn the hold switch off and on, but every time you press the hold switch off you should click the center button.
    -Repeat for about 5-15 minutes

    {Solution 2}
    -Restore iPod but DON'T sync any songs onto it.
    -Do the hold on and off technique.

    {Solution 3}
    -Delete iTunes and download the installer.
    -Restart your computer.
    -Install iTunes.
    -Basically do solution 2 after.

    {Solution 4}
    *I am going to be honest with you, this solution is the weirdest.
    -Delete iTunes and download the installer
    -Restart your computer
    -Install iTunes
    -Restore iPod, DON'T sync anything!
    -Leave the iPod there for about 8 hours.
    -Hit it on the table gently twice.
    -Now, if your using a 4G or 5G nano, remove the covers for the bottom and top. (Using a flathead screwdriver.)
    -Put your mouth over where the headphone jack is and blow really hard(to get any dust out, try to make sure that your mouth is cleared of spit first.)
    -Switch to the top, and suck as hard as you can.
    -Go back to headphone jack and suck as hard as you can.
    -Go to the top and blow as hard as you can.
    -Do the hold off on method once again.

    I know that the 4th solution sounds really weird, but it worked for me twice now. So it must mean something.
    I am using an iPod Nano 4th Generation.

    On purpose, I froze the clickwheel on my iPod by connecting it to a wall adapter and unplugging it several times.
    Then, I basically did the fourth solution by just the part about cleaning the dust out.
    And it worked instantly.
