The Apple diyMod: My Take on the Famous iMod [56k killer] Featuring 3G, 4G, 5G and nano 1G! - Page 6

Whoops, the middle one was wrong... i dont feel like taking anymore either! Once I get the nano working, I'll post pics of the Caps on the outside.

Well, I figured it out. There is a hairline crack along the ribbon cable (you can see it in the 1st pic, right under the "1"). It looks like the diymod is put on hold...if i ever get around to buying another 1g nano!

At this point I need to get my nano first and look inside to see what and how. I want to try squeeze caps inside if not then will be whole different story. Just wait a bit. When I am done I will post step by step tutorial with pics, parts, prices and were to buy.

ipodlinux.org/Generations says that the audio CODEC is in the bottom right of this image, the Apple 66AJSTB. The site also says it ought to be similar to the Wolfson Micro WM8750, similar to the WM8975. The pinouts are the same for both chips, and so the nano 2G should theoretically work, just that I can't decipher what's going on around the chip in this image. The feeds are coming out of the left side of the chip, but I can't see where they're going. If a daring soul would open up their nano 2G (and iPod video while they're at it), that would be great for readers of the thread. Remember that there are two pairs of L/R audio feeds, and that the first pair (with lower pin number) control the headphone jack, and as such have their volumes digitally controlled. The second pair, which should sit at the very bottom left of the 66AJSTB we see here (if it is indeed the same as the Wolfson chips), would be where you want to grab the signal.

Do you know (can you speculate on) which action caused the hairline crack in the ribbon cable? This would make for a good precautionary statement for anyone considering the Nano mod.

Yeah, I did put it on the other side. That was an early picture, I was testing the solder. But I didnt finish it, I was just telling Fatman I was 'done' ordering the click wheel.
