Grab a flathead screwdriver, or something close to that. You'll need it to pry open the iPod. Work the flathead into the crack between the screen and the backing.

Tip: Use toothpicks, pencils, or something likewise to hold the screen open as you work your way around the screen.

Step 2: Pop Out LCD Screen

Using your screwdriver, pry out the LCD Screen.

**Save the screen, it serves as a great flammable. We had some fun with it!

Step 3: Gut the Interior

Now for the fun part! Use whatever you can to clear out the interior. Screwdriver, dremel, a blowtorch.... Just do it!

Step 4: Reassemble the IPod

Now all I need is a ipod... brocken of course ;) Seriously man, this is incredible cool. I love it when people turn useless junk into great stuff. You got my vote :)

Zo the staff: On firefox 32.0.3 the vote button ssems to be brocken, and I don't want to go back to ie for every vote, so please fix that, if you can.
