  • I'd prefer RockBox operative sistem, 'cause let you upload info as a USB flashdrive, and his environment is more easy for the user/owner. I'm from Acapulco and i'm using An A500M Samsung phone (ptetty outdated, right?). Thanks for let me drop my mind by.

  • Thank you for this video! After watching, I realized that my 5th Gen iPod, which has been gathering dust due to a non-charging battery, can have a new life! I am going to order a replacement battery and fix it myself! I love that iPod so much, thank you for helping me realize I can revive it. 😊

  • These go for $200 in your country? Yall don’t have ebay or what. I aint ever paying $200 for an old iPod ever. You can buy a used iPhone 4 for $70 and it does significantly more than just play music
