One additional way to stop the jaggies is to twist the case in each
direction once. This may help reseat and clean contacts that may have
become loose. There may be a definitive list of "Jaggies" fixes in a
faq. If none of this works, at least one person sent his unit to Apple
for the $180 repair. They reported that the problem was completely
fixed. As for most of us, I know we have never seen the jaggies and I
suspect most people don't either.
