You could try plugging it into a charger for a while to see if it revives. Your battery might be drained completely due to running an incorrect/corrupt version of rockbox on it.

 

If that fails, then you may have a fried ipod.

Tried the method of plugging it into a charger. And then nothing happened, it's RIP.

How long did you leave it plugged in? Leave it charging for a while, just to be sure. Just keep an eye on it and make sure it isn't getting hot.

Hi, I'm interested in this system for my ipod classic 2nd, except for the "almost certain" non support of external ipod control (via the dock port). Are there some implementation plans for this function after the release is fully stable?

 

Thanks!

I don't think anyone has ever expressed in interest in working on that, so no plans at the moment.

I'd love to see this feature too, for an HP-P1 or AlgoRhythm Solo or something. If I end up- buying one of these anyway I could always switch back to the regular firmware and sync with MediaMonkey to convert my FLAC on the fly to ALAC or 320 MP3. I'm only attracted to Rockbox for the FLAC player part (having never used it) so I don't have to convert. I hated converting everything to WMAL for my Zune/Windows Phone (now I have an Android Phone and Google Music until I get an iPod Classic).

Hi,

This is a real newbie question (new to ipod classic, new to rockbox, new to etymotics), so I apologize in advance...

 

Do the controls on the etymotics HF3 work on a rockboxed ipod classic (7G)?  I've read that controls on docks and other things connected to the 30 pin connector do not, but as the etymotics connect to the line out, I thought they might.

 

   thanks,

      Roger

After reading about the sq from the classic and rockbox I decided to pick one up tonight.  I have read that the 240gb drive works in the classic, are there any larger drives that are confirmed to work?  Also is there a diy mod similar to what rwa mods due to the earlier ipods?  Hopefully this pairs well with the leckerton.

Line out is the 30 pin connector, which all accessories use.  You can't control an ipod any other way.

I don't think so.  Would be kind of pointless, the 6G doesn't have the screwed up output caps like the 4G and 5G did.  Its basically already "modded" for you, or rather Apple designed the output correct the first time so the output is very nearly quantization noise limited for 16 bit output.

Great to know. Thanks to you and the RB community for all of your hard work. Curious about the name though are you by any chance in Saratoga, NY?

It is great to be able to listen to my FLAC's on the go.  The sq is stellar when paired with the Leckerton UHA 6MKII and my Heir Audio 8A's.

I think my iPod died!!! I disconnected it from my computer and it won't turn on or reset! The screen stays black even when I plug it into my computer and try to reset it. Help!

post #1934 of 3239

This happened to mine a few times also....Just let the power drain and then re connect

I may have misspoke when I used the term "line out". The HF3 connects to the 3.5mm headphone jack. Will the HF3 controls (volume, next/previous track, etc.) still work after the iPod is rock boxed?
