Build your own 5th gen iPod Classic from cheap Chinese parts.

It's much cheaper now.

Alternatively just buy a Nokia N8 and use it as an audio player. It has a better Wolfson chip than any iPod ever made.

How much is the board? My 5th gen had that sound dead unless bottom corner push occurs constantly.

I bought a TWag 30pin->3.5mm and never used it. Feels bad man.

OK, so to make your own ipod you're going to need.

>ipod motherboard
>ipod screen
>ipod case
>ipod battery
>ipod clickwheel
>hard drive
>12 screws

So it's basically an assembly video.
Good work anon.
>>

>>
>>45214750
Like Apple?
>>
>>45214829
that didn't take long.
>>
>>45214750

>>
>>45214829
Apple discontinued the classic about a week ago.
>>
>>45214458

I don't see the point

>>
>>45214970
rockbox has a thing for that
>>
>>45214458
I can play flac. files through Rockbox, right?
>>
Why wouldn't you just get a clip+ and a decent size microSD card?
>>
>>45215112
I have an iPod Classic 6 or 6.5 or whatever gen (160gb slim).

Bought my gf a Sansa Clip+ with a 128gb card. Rockboxed that shit.
The size is amazing, and everything for the size and price is fantastic.
But it doesn't beat an iPod in terms of audio fidelity. Best bang for buck though.
>>
THANK YOU!
metal on mine is twisted from dropping/opening and screen is scratched to death...I just bought a 160gb hdd thinking about replacing it but the case/screen is just too shit and didn't know what to do
>>
>>45214834
paid shills
>>
>iPod classic discontinued
>suddenly all the stores stop selling them

What the fuck, where did all the stock go?
>>
>>45215279
People bought them by the bucketload and are now selling them at extremely inflated prices.

It's 2014. Just use your phone.
>>
>>45215112
So you can just buy the cheapest clip+ (the 4 GB one) and use any larger microsd in it? If that's true why do they sell the 4gb and 8gb?
>>
>>45214458
