We really had no idea how many iPod-using Engadget readers would be so stoked to finally be able to add such a simple thing -- backgrounds -- to their portable audio player. A new hack that claims to add a background to your 1st
or 2nd gen nano
(at the expense of dropping it down to the 1.1.1 firmware) have added customizable backgrounds with modder software iPodWizard. As usual, we do not vouch for the use of this software and wish you the best of luck in not bricking your precious iPod.
