An iPod hacker called The Wizard wrote a piece of
software that allows custom images to be added to the
iPod, like the Hello Kitty logo above. The Wizard's edi-
tor can customize the images and fonts in the firmware
contained in Apple's iPod software updates. The editor
allows users to customize the graphics and then load
them onto the iPod when updating the device's soft-
ware. The editor can also be used to extract all the fonts
and images used on the iPod.
