So basically, I got bored during the summer 3-4 years ago, so i built this. If you want to build one, dont blame me if it breaks, and please remember I am just a college student, so don't try to sue me for anything.
By building your own iPod, you get full customization of ALL parts and you get the bragging rights and tech experience from building it. You can change anything, from a clear front panel, to a high capacity hard drive. I built mine to save some $$$ and to show off to my friends.
P.S. : I built this like three years ago, during the summer, so I might have some steps mixed up.
P.P.S : I just made this new account b/c i did not like my other one, so moving all my pictures and stuff was part of the delay
