    Hi, I'm new to this forum and this is my first post. Anyway, I was looking to build an a 160GB 7th generation iPod Classic. I am going to buy all of the parts off of eBay. I think that I have all of the parts picked out, but I'm not 100% sure. Can anyone tell me if I have all of the parts that I need? Also, are all the parts correct? Like are they all compatible with each other? The link to my list of parts is http://my.ebay.com/wishlist/Valerie...QckEyZGg2SUdrWWVuQzVPQ29BNmRqNng5blkrc2VRKio* Any and all input is appreciated. Thanks!

    How much does all the parts come out to be? Might as well throw a bigger hard drive in there.

    Good luck! I may be crazy, but I'm not seeing any sort of motherboard, headphone jack, cable jack, all that fun stuff...

    I might just do that. I was supposed to build it from scratch for a school project but it would be expensive. I am getting pretty good at doing repairs, but that is on iPods that have been working already. I'm sure that if I try to build it from scratch I will end up missing a part. Thanks for the advice!

    I'm not gonna build this iPod anymore, but the motherboard was there. It's called a logic board. And you're right, I forgot to add the headphone/hold switch flex cable thingy. Nice catch. Thanks.
