There's a couple of extra "magic" resistors needed for Ipods - deliberately done to make it difficult for you.

If you look at the "Mintyboost" and the design there, they explain what's needed.

Is it possible to just switch it out with a USB from my computer because wouldn't it have the resistors too?
