Rockbox for iPOD Video 5th 5.5th mSATA SSD MOD - Page 9

post #121 of 133
I was in fact going to try the pny. Does anybody know if that works ? Otherwise I will accept poor battery life and go with tartans new msata adaptor when in ships late September

I just bought a second 80gb unit on ebay. Figured i could afford to kill that unit as it was fairly cheap ($52). Supposedly it works but is quite scratched up.

It's a 80gb iPod video right?

Oh okay, not more than 10GB at once. Good to know. wink.gif

Thanks guys for your help and support.
I'll order everything I need today and as soon as it comes in I'll start the whole process and let you know how I'am doing.

Thanks again! smily_headphones1.gif

There's one on ebay now for sale (£325 so a bit too rich for my taste)using the pny card (I messaged the seller and asked) so someone has got it working.


Good luck!

My current "production" machine is an 80gb ipod video.  Since everything is currently working, I figured I would mod a second unit in order to gain some appropriate skills.  That is why I purchased a second 80gb ipod video.  Both are 5.5g.

 

The original machine has a new battery (purchased on Amazon, I have no idea how good it is but the seller came up first and usually that tells you that the vendor is reliable) and a new video screen.

 

The second unit for sure will need a new front case part, and I am not sure what else.  I figure I will be dropping in a new battery and add either a msata or SD card drive.  It is encouraging to hear that the PNY works in the unit being auctioned at ebay.  If I get unit number 2 working then that will become the production machine I suppose.  Fortunately "refurbished" 80 gb ipod 5.5 video units are popular on ebay US right now.

Hey guys, Tarkan just informed me that the Tarkan iFlash-mSATA is available to be ordered.

 

Order it now and get it by mid-September. I been using heavily my retail adapter and it works perfect 100% of the time so go ahead and reserve your before the pre-sale closes.

Just to confirm this does work on 7th gen units as well as 5 and above doesn't it?

Yes, I have two here but only one is retail (the one in the Classic) and they work great.

I gather the safe bet is to go msata for 240 gb compared with sd cards. Is that correct ? Also will I need standard rockbox or a mod ? Thanks. My new experimental unit should arrive soon.

The new unit will need a new case. Any suggestions by the way. This will be a 5.5 video unit with 80gb factory.

Also will need a new battery. What is considered a good choice nowadays.? Thanks.

Actually a tarkan sd adapter and sd card is the safer bet right now.  Tarkan is going to be releasing soon a msata adapter.   If using msata you'll need beyondwinds (do a search) patched version of rockbox.

Get the iPod Classic middle frame, front faceplate and slim back plate. Build a concealed iPod 5th gen in a Classic shell. It fits awesome.
