to connect main frame. A ground strap (Silver color, and it could

show remove click wheel. ) is not sale whole of the world, is it

meaning to make a ground strap for myself?

Tsutomu Niimi, I have replaced a lot of logic boards on that model iPod and never have had any issues with NOT having the ground strap. However, if you are unsure, you can use the logic board outline as a pattern and make a ground strap out of aluminum foil. Good Luck, I hope this helps.
