I thought I would share this with you guys..

A while ago I installed iPod linux on my 30GB 5.5G iPod in a dual boot configuration. To do this I had to partition my iPod's HDD. However, for some reason the 5.5G iPod uses much larger cluster sizes than the linux kernel can handle so I had to tinker with the partition tables and such. I ended up with normal sized clusters for my linux partition. The weird thing is that both iTunes and the regular iPod firmware still treat these smaller clusters as the normal size, so when you do the math(and I have, but the iPL wiki is down so I don't have the numbers) I end up with what appears to be 109GB!




I really would like to go back and mess around some more to see if I can increase the number even further, possibly into the TB range But like I said the iPL wiki is non-existent right now so I only have the vaguest recollection of what I actually did.
