Flash-based iPod Classic.

Ok, to nerd-out for a minute. I did this (Convert 4G iPod into Flash based iPod) with Sean's broken iPod 4g the other day and it actually works. The parts (with an 8gb drive), in today's terms, came out to around $6. And with a flash drive it shouldn't konk (sp?) out on me anytime soon. Highly recommended.

Very cool.

Yeah, I have been surprised it has worked so well. If anyone actually tries it, let me know as it isn't exactly as the directions state. Could one sell these Steve? Would Apple come after them?

Mike said...

How's the battery life? I actually have an old iPod laying around with a bad hard drive, but the battery life also stinks.

Little Steve said...

And Apple would most definitely come after you.

The battery life is a bunch better.

And how much trouble would I get in if I start putting these up on eBay?

(PS-The batteries are pretty easy to come by, so that wouldn't be an issue.)
