So here's a fun thing. Building from the ground up a custom IPod 7g Classic. Using all after markets parts. Got tons of questions as I'll be using stuff I haven't used before.
1) looking at iFlash Pro SSD, they come with the option of running 1/2/4 cards at once (like SD) and you select in your settings which one to use (I think)
2) How the hell do they install? Look like they have holes to screw down into.
3) Does it replace my Logic board?
4) Is there anyway to get a bigger screen in there or better one?
5) Rockbox, can I still download music off of ITunes?
6) Back to the Iflash, can I run 4 2 TB cards for a total of 8Tb?
7) Any titanium face/back plates?
8) Anyone know of running any games on it (like older simple ones from NES for example)
9) A way of hooking a controller up to it
10) getting a Bluetooth in it?

Lots of questions but I love the classic for: the simplicity, the size of them, the click wheel, and I basically wanna make it like a tiny super computer in a way to.

If y'all got any other great ideas, please add on! I love ideas!!

Thanks, Taco

Not sure on the hardware stuff, but for software, check out linux:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPodLinux

EDIT: You mentioned Rockbox, which means you already probably considered linux...
I only saw Rockbox, I never really looked into other software besides the stock Apple OS.

On the compatibility side, it looks to be only compatible with gen 1-5.5.

I do like the sounds of it, more game console style.

I put linux on my 1G iPod. Had a couple more games on it and was fun to mess with, but I went back to the stock OS.
