    The dimensions and weight are still off though.

    You will also need to get a rebate from apple and disable the wheel.

    This mod forgot to include a way to:
    1) Decrease the price to that of a shuffle
    2) Decrease the weight
    3) Decrease the size
    4) Increase the sound quality

    Once you've figured out how to do this, I might look into replacing my shuffle with a shitty regular iPod.

    A simple, repeatable , non-distructive way of showing your art work on the shuffle with just clear tape and perma markers is here. http://chandanscorner.blogs...
    takes 5 Mins and is lots of fun

    Well you COULD do that... or just get one yourself and save you the countless amount of hours just trying to convert your Ipod to an Ipod shuffle as you see in the photo above ;)

    Wow!
    It works just like a bought one.
    I'm impressed.
    I must stress, this mod is not as easy as it looks, and I agree with Dave, a user manual would be helpful for those that may not have the necessary skills to do this.
    Alternatively, if anyone is unsure about this, send your iPod to me, and I can make the necessary mods for you.....
