I installed OS X 10.5.6 in my 30gb ipod, booted into it and now am in the process of slimming down all my apps using Xslimmer.
It will slim it down about 1.2gb. Then I will restore the OS X image into my 8gb ssd using disk utility. Will post back results.


Hey, did you get that to work? I installed to an external, trimmed it down, restored my external to my internal SSD successfully, but it won't boot the SSD.

I installed it using a snow leopard disc. You have to hack a file to enable selection/deselection of non-critical components to get the install to squeeze onto the 8 gb. Once it is on, it's fine.

There is a guide on the web on how to set up everything.
