New Battery for Flash Converted G4 U2 iPod!

15 minutes - 1 hour
I got the iPod as a dead unit with a bad battery and a dead mainboard. I replaced my mainboard and replaced the hard drive with a 64 gig compact flash I did not trust the $6 dollar Amazon battery I installed and thought I'd better get an iFixit approved one.
I had a bit of a snag, the drive cable quit working , but it was easy to diagnose, and thankfully I had a spare!
The battery is easy, and if you have a classic iPod I seriously suggest the flash conversion. It extends the battery life and shock-proofs the iPod very well. Your heart does not stop if you accidentally pull the unit off of your desk onto the floor!
