Anyone who did the 240gb ipod 5.5 upgrade wanna report back their experiences so far? The Rapidrepair forum indicates there might be a problem filling it up, that after 30000 tracks the are issues.

I considered rockbox (tested it up before converting my iPod to 240GB), but it wouldn't work with my car iPod adapter. Since I use my iPod almost exclusively in my car, that was a no-go. Another issue is the inability of rockbox to read ReplayGain info from APE tags stored in mp3 files. I now have that working by using gnupod (and stock iPod firmware). Rockbox is very nice, but it has its issues..
I didn't rock box it.
I mostly use my imod in shuffle mode when I travel, which is a lot and very long trips. It's an easy plug and play procedure anyone can do. There are websites and youtube videos on how to do it. The first one I did, I was nervous. By the fourth or fifth one, I set my personal best time of under five minutes; piece of cake.
I use aiff files because that's what's on my music server from ripping CDs uncompressed and I don't want to convert files to put them on an imod. I think I have 4500 uncompressed aiff files on my imod, more than enough for the longest trip.
