    I've started stroking 'em before I go to bed !!!!!! …. Hey ! - It's a hobby. It's a passion. You don't have to explain eccentricities if it's a hobby …. At least that's my excuse ! :)

    Ha! Ha! Didn't realise there were other people just like me. I've modded 5 iPod videos & 2 x 7th gen160's using Tarkan Quads, then RockBoxed 'em …. not 1T, but 250-300gb & I too, CANNOT bring myself to re-sell them - just can't ! PS: Are you sure they're actually selling for over £1000 &...

    Yeah, I've bought faulty Logic/Mother Boards from AliExpress. They basically give you details to return it..then deny all knowledge of receiving it ! But I've bought tons of other stuff (batteries, backplates etc.) that have been OK. Their products are so cheap you have to take the attitude -...

    If an iPod has no sound through the headphones, I always ask the seller if sound still comes through the usb port. If it doesn't, it's a dud. Totally agree

    Most of the antics point to dodgy logic board.....I'm pretty certain no sound through dock is the board

        You've pretty much answered your own questions really: 6g IS slightly harder than the 5g to open but the more you open the better you become at it. Yeah, thin HF jack just means as opposed to those found in the thick back plates. The Tarkan Quad (IMHI) is a major breakthrough in modding...

    Yeah, right ! .....Purchased 2x Takan Duals to improve a couple of 5.5G's about a week before the Quad came out....so I HAD to buy the Quad+2000mAh Battery & make another one up (I have 7 iPods to date !) just to see if it fits with slim back..& of course it does TO PERFECTION !   Should put...

      Yeah.... last year I used a Super Talent 120  in a 5Gen slim, then with a bit of help from a 'genius' on the Rockbox site obtained a patch & made the successful software conversion....After adding a FiiO Andes E07K & the 64 Ears V3s I couldn't be happier with the results.   I just...

      Excellent info. I realise this is 4 years on but Do you know of anyone who's actually been successful in this particular combination (i.e. the Mach Xtreme 120GB Nano ZIF Series 1.8" PATA SSD) Has there been any 'world-changing break-throughs' in the last 4 years ?

    Sometime last year I swapped an 80gb HDD for a Super Talent 120 SSD in a used 5.5 Gen, then with a bit of help from a 'genius' on the Rockbox site successfully converted it to my favourite software....After adding a FiiO Andes E07K & the 64 Ears V3s I couldn't be happier with the results.   I...

    Quote: Thank you so much for all your input on the subject. I'll be ordering one soon as I can. This will be my first venture into modifying (most I've ever done is change a 5.5 battery !) so fingers crossed...I'll let you know the outcome - Thanks again.
