    You might as well wait till the rumored release of the 4th gen this summer. I'm pretty good at soldering motherboards, but even I'm afraid of what would happen if I tried

    It is possible to use the flash memory as RAM (just partition a portion of it as swap - will be almost as fast as RAM), but I don't think anyone has tried to do it yet. iPhone / iPod touch Linux would make this very easy to do.

    Been done. Kills your iPod faster btw with the constant read/writes.

    It's called VM. It does decrease the full life of your iPod but some people like me really do need it.

    There's a tutorial on this site but I don't know where it is. Or just google "how to use vm on iPod touch"
