oh nice, i modded a fat for a friend once, and i realllly want one of those. Im surprised you could mod your 2006 as i figured it would have a T-89 or T-90 mobo in it.
i have a 2001 with the t-088 and i got lucky because my battery can be interchanged between pandora and normal without opening it again or using time machine.
when i change to a new case, im going to buy lots of protectors from it including a hard case and faceplate cover. Im also going to buy that holder that has a battery in it
