What Cmarti said! I could not agree more.

thanks guys for your feedbacks. After I read that I decided to go for the crucial. But I felt like, hmm, going from 240gb to 480gb is "just" double the space I have right now. So I read the thread again, from page 180 to 233. Was amazing interesting as well as loooooooooong. What about a central WIKIPEDIA? Think would be really very helpfull for everyone.

 

After reading all this pages, yeah.......i defenetly NEED to go for the TeraPod, hehe. I didn't remember Dminor and dr408517 were so sucessfully building TeraPods.

 

@dr408517 

do you already have some findings from comparing the 5.0 and 5.5 logic board for the TeraPod (concerning your post 3476)

 

guys, you all in here are amazing, reeeeally amazing!!!

What comes next, after everyone is going to build and enjoy a TeraPod in few months? A monster 3-4gb iPod for the car, with an external 2.5' HD and external 12v power supply? I would be the first to use that, hehe. Tarkan mentioned anyhow something like that....external sata-hd with the iPod which could go up to 2-3 Gb and more....

Are you saying the 500 GB EVO is a no-go? After lurking this thread for ages, and discovering that Tarkan's mSATA adapter was on pre-order, I decided to go and buy all the parts I need. Which included said EVO.

 

Also, the 2000 mAh (Alex's) battery everyone's talking about, would that be this one? http://www.ebay.com/itm/2000mA-Battery-Back-Cover-Upgrade-kits-replacement-for-iPod-Classic-160GB-thin-/191194956202

 

I wanted to thank everybody in the thread for getting me on the modding track and providing such a treasure of info. I do agree with SirMarcolino though: a wiki, or an updated front post, would save a lot of time.

 

One last question, I've seen mention of a Beyondwind Rockbox. What makes it different from the regular Rockbox, exactly?

Not saying that the 500gb card will not work but I wasn't able to make it work. Other users were able to use the 1TB card so there shouldn't be a reason why you can't use the 500gb. I think the issue is when you format the card via USB instead of in a motherboard slot.

 

The photo in the eBay listing you posted is the old stock photo, the new batteries now have printed the voltage and capacity on them.  And seriously they work marvelous.

@Cmarti, I just finally sent Cheung an email to order a battery. biggrin.gif Going to see what I can do to get it into my 5.5 with CF>SD. Hopefully I can somehow find a way to get it in there.
