OK, I admit I am daunted by the 185 pages on this topic. Is there a wiki that reviews some of the options for the ipod 5.5 video? I guess I should review the basics....such as understanding the voltage issues with this unit (12V vs. 5 V), how to replace batteries and video screens, etc. As I understand it, the audio benefits from the Wolfson chip are only heard via the headphone out but not the 30 pin connector? With Rockbox, one can natively play higher bit rate files? To upgrade storage, there are approaches using both compact flash 3.3V or less microSSD cards? Or special SATA adaptors are needed. I know I am a ninny on this particular matter, so thanks for helping out.
