Cool, I wonder how smoothly it runs...

This is one downside of Apple leading in marketshare - MS has to do things like backporting new firmware to old hardware to stay in the game. Not even the 5G iPod got all the software features of the 5.5G...

Not bad, runs nicely, but is kinda weird how the next menu swoops in from the right, unless thats how the Classic is.

The text seems a little off/not as sharp.

Looks like they did half the job. I wouldn't use it.

This is just a theme that adds to the already enormous library of themes available for iPods.

From what I hear this version is severely unstable.

I put this on my iPod, I ejected it, and it scared me... it was stuck on the apple screen, so I restarted it and it works...
Only thing I don't like about it, is it only shows the album art on the side when you are playing a song, and it is a little laggy when changing menus

What's the point of halfing the screen if you don't have the album art or whatever flashing through on the other side? I credit their ingenuity but it isn't very practical, just use the 5th gen firmware, honestly.

Well, Apple made this firmware for those people who actually buy the music, this way, they get all the goodies that goes with the new firmware, such as album art and lyrics.

Maybe you should start organizing your music, or start buying them instead of leeching it from P2P if you're lazy.

Every song in my iPod has album art and lyrics, and it took me a good 3 hours to organize a grand total of 2000 songs.

edit: By the way, did anyone find the firmware for Mac iPod? The firmware provided by iPodWizard only works on Windows' iPod.
