Zune 2 Hacks

Hack #1: Multi-Extension Support mod - This hack makes the Zune program support more types of video, audio, and image extensions. This mod converts files for use on the Zune. Files are automatically converted to the exact specifications used on the Zune device, so no guesswork is involved. It also adds the songs and movies to your library. The hack current supports the following: Audio: .aac, .aif, .aifc, .aiff, .au, .cda, .mid, .midi, .rmi, .snd, and .wav files are now automatically added to your library and later converted and synced with the Zune device. They will not play in your Zune program, though. Video: .asf, .avi, .dvr-ms, .m1v, .m2v, .mod, .mp2, .mp2v, .mpa, .mpe, .mpeg, .mpg, .mpv2, and .wm videos are now automatically added to your library and later converted and synced with the Zune device. They will not play in your Zune program, though. Images: .png, .bmp, .gif, and many other image file types have been found as being supported by the Zune program, but as of yet they cannot be added to the library or synced to your device.


Hack #2: Not really a hack, more of a break-it-open guide - Rapid Repair, a personal music player parts and repair site, has opened up the new Zune 2 and has the pictures to prove it. With their step-by-step guides, you, too, can bust into your Zune, old or new, and replace a part or two.  

Hack #3: Use the Zune 2 as a flash drive - this hack makes your computer recognize your Zune 2 just like it's any ordinary USB flash drive

Hack #4: Convert DVD, video, audio, iTunes and YouTube video to Zune or Zune 2 - this hack gives you directions to convert DVD and popular video and audio file formats like AVI, MPEG, DivX, XviD, MOV, ASF, RM to Zune, convert iTunes to Zune, iPod to Zune, M4P to Zune, M4v to Zune, and download and convert video from YouTube, FLV, Google, Myspace, iFilm, etc. to Zune. It was written up for the original Zunes, but sources say it works on Zune 2.

Hack #5: Another conversion hack - this hack shows you how to convert DVD video to play in your Zune 2.

Hack #6: Custom Zune Wallpapers - Zune Flow offers wallpapers for the Zune, but can also do a custom one for you.

Hack #7: YouTube to Zune converter - this hack is the how to guide on converting YouTube videos to play on the Zune.

Hack #8: Hack the new Zune 2.0 software to display custom themes - registered members at this forum can download custom themes called zThemes like this Halo 3 one or this Vista one. (Download link here)

Hack #9: Better yet, make your own custom Zune software theme

Hack #10: Get a full-on Zune hacking suite - this hacking suite lets you do the following:
1 - Zune AutoPlay Support Patcher - causes the AutoPlay box to pop up when the Zune is connected.
2 - Zune Guest Mode Disabler - disables guest syncing in the Zune program.
3 - Zune Icon Changer - changes the default icon for your Zune (the suite comes with 11 icons you can choose from).
4 - Zune In Explorer Patcher - makes it so that your Zune appears in Windows Explorer.
5 - Zune Marketplace Disabler -disables the marketplace in the Zune program.
6 - Zune Multi-Extension Support Patcher - makes it so the Zune program will pick up and sync many more types of media.

    Wow, we need more posts like this. Also these hacks work with the Zune 30, at least some.

    Which hacks work with the Zune30? What about the external USB/HD hack?  Were you able to make this work with your Zune30 and the Zune 2 software?
    I can see my Zune in "My Computer", but I cannot add files, even when the Zune software is tranferring data to my Zune.
