I have a 3g but was bought without the hd. I have the same cd adapter as pictured and a 4gb ultra2. The card is formatted for fat32. I have both fw and usb cables and neither of them will work no matter what I do. On win7 during usb disk mode it would keep trying to find or install a driver but won't work. On OSX it would show up on sys profile under usb but neither OS would actually show a disk on the controller.
On ubuntu the tail shows the ipod in disk mode but also no disk on any sda.
I have no access to a working disk image. All I have is the blank CF and of course the .ipsw and firmware inside. I am baffled on how to actually put the firmware on. Would I have to put the CF card in a card reader and manually partition and then dd the image on?
With or without usb disk mode or just plain pluggin in, nothing- rockbox installer, ipodwizard, itunes nothing would acknowledge there is an ipod plugged in.
I need to at least put on some kind of bootloader whether apple or rockbox but cannot seem to find the right way to do so because there's also the issue of partitioning it the right way. Rockbox only seems to want to work if there's already the basic ipod fundamentals already on the cf card.
Would there be anyone willing to image their working cf card without the music? That would probably be a good asset to future modders who would just need to copy that onto their own blank card and then be set to connect to itunes right away...
