New iPod firmware/OS on 5.5G iPod?

Is this possible? If they use the same hardware, I don't see why it couldn't be with a few hacks. Is anyone on to this yet?

I don't believe so. ...And why do you suspect they use the same hardware?

From what it seems, not much has changed except for the interface and drive size. There are no new formats supported, so it leads me to believe the hardware processing it is the same.

No, it's not possible. And use the forum search before posting... I've seen this countless times since Wednesday.

It cannot be done. It would be like shoehorning 10.4 into a PowerMac 8500.
