That depends on which model you're talking about. I believe you can just cut the traces leading up to the headphone outs and solder straight to the solder pads for the headphone outs for most. For the 4G, that should be fairly obvious, as it would also be for the nano 1G, I imagine. The 5G is a bit different, as you have to route the wires past the metal frame, which will undoubtedly mess with the final closure of the iPod. You may be able to hack away at the iPod's board, but that's up to you as it's multilayered and you can't always see what you're sawing away. I assume you're talking about the 4G, since I think
I've seen pictures of you having one.
Just cut the traces leading up to the headphone jack route wires back from the BGs up to the headphone jack. Good news is it's already grounded for you. How thoughtful of Apple.
