Interaction with the OS includes gestures such as swipe, tap, pinch, and reverse pinch, all of which have specific definitions within the context of the i OS operating system and its multi-touch interface.
Internal accelerometers are used by some applications to respond to shaking the device (one common result is the undo command) or rotating it vertically (one common result is switching from portrait to landscape mode).
After searching around, I found this, which is the i OS 3.1.3 IPSW for your i Pod.
The fifth generation i Pod Touch (stylized and marketed as the i Pod touch, and colloquially known as the i Pod Touch 5G or i Pod Touch 5) was unveiled at Apple's media event alongside the i Phone 5 on September 12, 2012 and was released on October 11, 2012.
Initially shipped with i OS 6, which was released on September 19, 2012, it can play music, movies, television shows, e Books, audiobooks, and podcasts and can sort its media library by songs, artists, albums, videos, playlists, genres, composers, podcasts, audiobooks, and compilations.
Users can rotate their device horizontally to landscape mode to access Cover Flow.
Alternatively, headset controls can be used to pause, play, skip, and repeat tracks.
