Does anyone know a way to uncap the volume limit on an iPod Nano 5G? I've tried using goPod but doesn't recognise it being connected. It no longer appears to be still being developed as the last version is 5 years old.
Under iTunes/Preferences/General/Playback, you can tick the Sound Enhancer option and set it to 'high'. Try it, sync your iPod and see if it works for you....

Thanks Clare. Just tried it - its not loud enough for me and nowhere near as loud as my 1G Nano uncapped with goPod.
For Ipod Nano 5g European model i've managed to find a way to get rid of volume cap without sound increase. What you need: 1) Ipod nano with a volume cap by our friends in EU comission 2) Computer with internet access 3) A valid credit card of paypal account. The trick is simple - if ipod is reset (firmware re-updated) while your computer is connecting to iTunes from a US IP address, the update you will be getting won't have a volume cap. In detail: You need to sign up for a VPN from one of those online VPN providers. They typically cost 5$ per month. You will only need this once - to reflash your ipod. You setup a VPN connection with them, verify on www.whatismyipaddress.com that your IP address is from US (also you can use www.speedtest.net to see on the map where are you connecting from)\ Then launch itunes and reset player. Simple No need for eupod, dopod, or sound-crippling +100% volume hack. Hope it works for you, and watch out your ears, they will be surprised by the volume and bass boost.
