A friend posted this on another forum the other day..i dont own an Ipod, but thought it might be useful for anyone who does:

I have an iPod photo which I got just before they released the iPod video, which I would have bought instead. I was pissed off... until today.

Anyway, browsing the web at work today and found this:
http://www.overclockers.com.au/wiki/Easy_i...od_Photo_and_4G

Anyway, tried it, installed linux (dual boots with the original iPod OS) and now can watch videos, have way more games... you can also get a version of DOOM to play on it! (The Linux iPod OS is far better too!)

They have other versions of the linux OS for the different generations of iPods (Nano and Shuffle incl.) though watching a video in greyscale may be a bit daft!

How many full length films in AVI format can you fit on a 40GB HDD... a F*$CKING lot! Sweet!

Not sure if I want to risk it. I read on the website, a comment from someone saying it corrupted the Apple Operating System and none of the media files will play again. hmmm... if anyone tries it, let me know.

Supposively you can goof your iPod up every which way, but you can always fix everything with that reformat/initalize program.
