Hot rod your iPod

Event organizers want it made clear that if you haven’t backed up your data — use programs like iPodRip or PodUtil — they will not help you install alternate firmware. It’s also worth noting that doing so will, of course, void your iPod’s warranty. Finally, you should know (emphasis theirs) that “there is a small risk that the process may damage your iPod. perhaps irrevocably.” But, such are the risks we run when taking part in a revolution. As the iPod liberators put it, unintentionally echoing Patrick Henry: “This is the price we all must pay for freedom.”

The iPod Liberation Party takes place at 7 pm this Friday, October 6, at the MIT Media Lab, 20 Ames Street, in Cambridge. For more information e-mail or visit
