    Default Ipod + Linux = ?

    Recently, I have been interested with ipod nano.
    It's so small, sleek, plays musics, views photos, but it lacks somth, Video!
    Yes it can't play video files! I know the screen is too small but it is fun if it can

    Anyone who already have an ipod, espcially ipod nano,
    now you can play uncompressed video file and play games, yes games!
    How is this possible? well all you need is to install customized Linux OS on your ipod,
    do I have to have a Linux computer?? No, you can do this on windows too especially windows XP,
    well using linux emulator, check this out.

    http://ipodlinux.org/Main_Page (for mac installation just follow the main page)
    Do this at your own risk.

    Here's how you do it:

    (GUI guided installation)

    http://ipodlinux.org/Installer_2 (official installer)

    unsupported:

    this is how you convert the video files so it can be played on the Nano:

    Uninstallation:

    Damn easy, I might get this ipod nano, but then again the current max storage capacity is 4gb,
    that's too small to keep uncompressed video files,
    I might wait for 8Gb, umm but some said the 8Gb will have the video features on it, who knows.

    but...there is possiblity to upgrade you nano storage capacity to 8Gb, here's how:

    anybody want to take a bite?

    I like the black ipod nano better, but it looks like it shows show finger prints and scratches easier.

    well everyone would prefer bigger storage capacity, it's just that ipod video is not small enough to be carry around it is still a bit too big.

    well obviously you don't know squat about male grown up pockets,
    they have keyss (car keys, office keys, home keys), ciggarettes, lighter, cell phones, wallet, it would scratch their precious Ipod. Being ignorant is NOT a bliss!

    what I'm really concern is that ipod video is still a little bit too big (wide) to put in a pocket,
    Well if you know something, post them with some good explanation and respect, don't post like some ignorant brat.
