Default Ipods!

Anyone know how to skin ipods..I hate that white, I was hoping for like backgrounds, black and what not. I mean you think spending 300 on a mp3 player, they would supply some skins for you, obviouly not. Is there a simple clean way to do this. Maybe a site where you just download the skin, insert it into a folder, and you're done?

If not that, can someone point me to a forum where they have some nice guides and what not? Thanks!

If you stick linux on it, you totally erase the data on it. Trust me.. My friend tried it, and I never heard the end of him loosing his music.

theres also a firmware called Rockbox (or something) which adds loads of features. You can replace the original with it, or even bootload with the old one too.

Its a hack. Like anything. i guess it carries risks. Best thing you can do is to back up first.
Anything to make the Ipod better..
