Yeah that's what I'm thinking too. I don't think there is a way to do it unless you want to use some other operating system on it.

another feature that i'd say is missing..

a background with my handsome picture would be much better than the plain white that i'm stuck with...

what type of ext. sw can be added anyways?

As far as I can tell, you cannot modify the existing iPod OS without replacing it (i believe the only alternative is Linux for the iPod... which looks pretty cool).

You can't change the background itself, but you can change some of the built in icons and text by editing the firmware. I successfully used iPodIcons (http://ipodicons.sourceforge.net/) to change the "do not disconnect" icon of my iPod photo to a picture of my dog's face (then it was stolen, so some bastard is out there enjoying my puppy's cuteness :mad: ). Doesn't look like it's been updated for 5th gen, but who knows, maybe it'll still work? I seem to recall this program was smart enough to work with any iPod firmware at the time. Might be worth checking into.
