Nice! Details! :D
No, not the iphone battery. I haven't worked on that battery since last time. Will definitely dig more into that thing. So at this point I don't think it will be an option for your mod.
I managed to swap my iPod Classic HDD for the 120GB Patriot SSD with the Tarkan's bundle but I'm experiencing some kind of issues now.
I used to connect my (HDD) iPod to the car radio via USB cable and it worked just fine with both mp3 and ALAC (Apple Lossless) files.
Right now it works fine with mp3 files but whenever I'm listening to some ALAC songs, it just freezes randomly, sometimes once every 3 songs, sometimes twice within one song.
Sometimes the radio displays the FRMT and 19 error which, according to the manual, might mean some troubles with file format or iPod failure.
The progress bar on the iPod is working, it is fully operational, but the input on the radio is just completely frozen, the only thing that helps is reconnecting the USB cable.
I tried the newest ALAC encoder, I even connected the iPod Nano with the ALAC files converted on the same computer and encoder and they work just fine.
Is SSD corrupting the playback via USB cable?
Should I try some SSD formatting or speed tests?
Would Rockbox solve my issue, does it feature playback using USB cable?
Hey guys after install this ssd hd:
Super Talent 1.8 inch SSD 256GB
When i tried to restore nothing happen and after a a few seconds the ipod show x, but when i install anther hd (original 160gb) work fine.
I forget this is the hard drive:
I used the 128 GB version and it works like a champ, never used the double capacity version but I do not see why not. Have you purchased it already of you are thinking of doing it.
Someone in here mentioned that they had issues with RockBox using a similar drive however with my 128 GB version I have no problems whatsoever.
You just have to switch the internal drive for this SSD one by substituting the old mechanical one using the ZIF interface with the SSD one.
Make sure iTunes is already up before you connect the iPod. Once you connect the iPod to your USB port, iTunes will show you the recovery screen and ask you to factory reset the drive. Just follow the instructions and iTunes will place the firmware on your new drive. Once you finalize the install, you will be booted back to iTunes with the new setup to provide the initial information for your iPod. Be patient because it takes close to 30 seconds for the iPod to be recognized as a new unit. That's it.
Then if you want you can try to load RockBox onto it but that is not necessary. The only issue is that you won't be able to play FLAC files if you don't.
