diyMod ipod 5g step-by-step tutorial - Page 2

You can solder directly to IC leg, it's the only place where to get signal from.

You can see one of the pads is black not silver like the rest of them. Is this a problem? How can I fix it?

Pin of the DAC-CODEC chip, pinout can be found in WM8978 datasheet. Or replace the whole board, it can be obtained as replacement part.

Surprisingly I still get quite a few hits for this on my site!


Any suggestions that would help people?

I'm up to the part of making the dock connector (still waiting on parts from Qables), but otherwise the tutorial is pretty complete. I was hoping to post it here on a separate thread to generate more visibility and feedback on ways to improve it.

And before anyone flames me for plagiarism, I've gotten the blessings of Jon to both create the tutorial and to post this thread on it.

Without further ado:

Hello, your website seems down. I need to do the iMod for a weekend project.
