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
Step 1: Tools
The tools needed are:
-Small soft-pry tool
