    Hey,

    I have an iPod Classic (6gen i think...) and i was wondering if it was atall hackable or if i could atleast run some 3rd party apps on it, all the news i have seen about it have said that it is un-hacked and will never be hacked. Is that true? :/

    iPod Linux, nope...
    iPodWizard, nope...
    RockBox, nope...

    Everything since the 2G nano (2006) is unhackable at the moment, and probably for a long time because I doubt anybody is working on it.

    It hasn't, and probably won't be, just out of lack of demand/laziness.
    The 2G nano can run Rockbox, but it's tethered.

    Yeah if you want. You'll have to work with the themes and mods that have already been made though, there isn't much, if any development on it these days.

    Some of the themes and stuff are pretty decent though, continuum and the like.

    How I love when a bit of life is breathed into the legacies.

    drivendesign used to host a few high-quality themes, since been taken down, same with iPod Hacking.

    afaik, iPodWizard is still up, and they've still got a few (meself included) left clutching onto their resilient 5Gs. I posted up a little intro to the older iPods if anyone wants it.

    The clasic will most likley never be hackable, but there are a lot of 5,5.5g hacks
