I am thinking about install the capacitor inside the ipod, or inside the switchcraft plug,
but no sure how to solder the +/- signal on the capacitor..
Can anybody give me some hints?
I wanna try this with internal caps in a 30gb 5g. I have all I need except a big CF card. So I want to know if i can do this:
Then take the wires outside the ipod, solder some caps on, solder them in a minijack, and I have a redneck diymod? Yes?
Thanks for any quick info on this! I have an eight hour busride tomorrow!
Reviving an old thread because i'm not sure if this was clarified before, but the above picture is only half right.
Those caps are line-out and line-in. The headphone out on the h1x0 series has no capacitors in the signal path.
Any chance you'd be willing to help out a fellow member with how you did the internal caps? I don't know where to route them. I wanna take my 30 gb iPod 5.5G and put a 128GB SSD and internal caps for ultimate portability. I haven't figured out any way to do this, but I know it has been done.
EDIT: oh and I would be wanting to accomplish this by use of an 80GB iPod video back, to allow the extra space.
Hello everyone, I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this but I am wondering does anyone know someone who can DIY an imod for me and at what cost. I have the 5.5g ipod already I just am looking for a cheaper option other than red wine audio.
I would be interested in finding someone to do this as well, I just want the caps internal, using a 80gb back panel to allow me to keep my hard drive in it/put in an SSD.
Hi, I have a little time to do a few more mods, depends where you are and what version of the mod is required. I tend to do the tricky 'direct to LOD pin' version because I'm mad :)
I'm in the UK and have done quite a lot of these for friends. I recently did a 128GB CF direct to pins and sold it on here.
I'm sure you can find willing modders in the US as well.....
I'm wondering if anyone has found the diyMods (with Gen 4 Photo) to be somewhat bass light and shallow mid vocals? It seems treble forward and somewhat more sibilant. I'm using the Elna's 6.3V 47uF.
I've got my line-out to the headphone jack instead of of the charging connector if it makes any difference. The only resistors I removed are on the mainboard L/R lineout.
I just completed my internal diymod with silmic iis. I changed out the HD with a Tarkan adapter and CF card (32gb). Switched out to a 80gb back panel and a 1300mah battery.
Now I know this kind of question has been asked to death but I just wanted to make sure.
Right channel --> cap --> L2
Left Channel --> cap --> L3
Unfortunately, I lifted the L3 pad so I soldered the Left channel instead to the top circle (next to C74 lettering).
Question 1: Is it okay to have right channel go to L2 while left channel goes to that circle? or do they both have to be on the circles?
Question 2: I've noticed that the bottom part of the front cover (right below the play button & around where the soldered connections would be) is getting warm. Is this normal or did I set up something wrong?
Thanks in advance.
