Intro: Opening the New Ipod Classic 80Gig
In this Instructable, I show you how to successfully open what apple has discussed as
"un-openable". I'll show you exactly how I figured it and Include some pictures for reference.
Please note I am NOT responsible for any destruction you may cause to your ipod in this process.
Step 1: Opening It Up.
Like all other ipods, this step is quite tedious, basically, using a hard, flat and skinny object, you pry the metal facing from the other side, and slowly progress towards cracking both halves open.
Step 2: Finding Dreaded "Sarcophagus" Clips.
these are the supposedly new security features in the new ipod,
congrads, three little skinny pieces of metal to detour most from prying an apple device open,
luckly for me I could care less about this Ipod, its hard drive got owned by bad sectors.
I'll show you where these clipped wonders are on the picture below.
Step 3: What Do Your Insides Look Like?
Here are pictures of the guts.
Step 4: You're Done.
Hopefully this saves some headache with the whole opening process and someone will find this useful.
