Icons in iPod menu
A group of individuals have managed to crack the iPod's internal software and allow users to of the popular music device. A tutorial has been released that explains how to change any string constant into an image on the iPod nano using iPodWizard, allowing users to change the length of a string (in appearance only), as well as change the iPod string into an image. The author suggests readers possess a basic understanding of character encodings, a good understanding of iPodWizard, and a good understanding of image processing down to pixel level. The maximum height of images is the height of the font being edited, which is typically the main font, and images will have the bit depth of the original font--typically 1-to-4-bit gray scale.
