So can this work on a 6th generation iPod classic?

OK guys now it's time for some brain storming...

I have a ibasso dx90 and a headfier called lurker0 created a custom firmware that sets the cpu clock speed to maximum at all times, from my understanding I guess it prevents jitter and guarantees that the dac is bit perfect at all times

Once again from the dx90 thread I discovered that a battery with better quality cells also increases the sound quality (I bought the official Samsung Galaxy s3 battery for it)

Both the modded firmware and the better battery showed a slight improvement in each they're own ways (I am not alone in that opinion)

Couldn't those same ideas be applied to a diymod? I am confident that someone can do the same firmware mod with rockbox but I am not so sure where to buy an ipod 5.5 battery that is a vast improvement on the regular crap

I don't mean more miliwatt hours or more battery life I mean the cells of the battery are manufactured to a much higher quality control standard


I'm sure there's plenty of you rubbing your palms together right now lol

IPOD 5.5 ISN'T DEAD YET PEOPLE!!!

About a year ago I attempted this mod and ruined my ipod since then a friend has done the mod for me and until reading this thread my "new" ipod has been my most prized possession. The problem is that I used 6.3v elna silimic 2s with a capitance of 47uf and it seems that everyone here now recommends 4.7uf. I mainly listen to my ipod through a vintage stereo receiver using an unmodded radio shack dock. Would there be a benefit to replaceing the caps with some 4.7uf of the same kind? I know most people here recommend film capacitors but I really want to keep the thin profile. Thanks!
