IPod touch hdd

Tue Dec 05, 2017 3:41 am

Hello all. This is my first post here. Ive read the rules and think I'm in the right forum. Ive also searched the forums before posting. I am new to raspberry pi. Ive managed to get it fired up. I am using a 16gb SD card as of now. I was recently rummiging through my parts bin for another project I found a few things that I thought might be of use on my pi. The first thing is an iPod touch with a devastated screen. I am curios if anyone has ever used an iPod touch as a bootable HDD for the pi?

Given Apple's "you can only do what we allow you to do" attitude, I doubt this is possible.

Also, my second generation ipod touch isn't regonised as a USB HDD so even if the above doesn't apply, it probably won't be possible. Though I can't speak for later generations.
