I think I mispoke as well.  I had no idea they still supported those simple headphone remotes on the 6G.  Looking online it looks like they short different audio pins to tell the player you've hit buttons.  If the pause button makes it look like the headphones were disconnected that might work.  Nothing else will though.  I don't think the 6G has any remote support at all enabled beyond (IIRC) headphone unplug detection.

Curious about the name though are you by any chance in Saratoga, NY?

Start again and make sure that you click  the box in task manager that says "show processes for all users"  add this step and continuing on with the steps below. Not sure if this is the problem but i suspect those having difficulty with the install are missing this step.  

 

Make sure iTunes is closed

  • Kill "AppleMobileDeviceService.exe" using the task manager
    • Open the task manager (press CTRL + SHIFT + ESC)
    • Click on the "Processes" tab
    • Choose "AppleMobileDeviceService.exe"
    • Press the "End Process" button
    • Press "End Process" to confirm
  • Do the same for "iTunesHelper.exe"

Did you try placing the hold switch to on and then back off and then hold the menu and select buttons for awhile.  Mine just locked up while being plugged into my windows 8 machine and froze on the usb screen, which forced my windows 8 to have an error and wouldn't reboot.  PITA however that reset the ipod form the frozen screen.

Ya, I just tried that. I even held the menu and select buttons for about 30 seconds and the screen still stayed black.

Props to Br777, this is fantastic guide. Last night I rockbox'd my 7G Classic and I had a few questions I was hoping someone could answer.

 

 - Is there anyway to display bitrate on the Now Playing screen?

 

 - What's the point in building a database?

 

 - I'm on the latest build, is there any way to make the font bigger without changing theme?

 

Cheers,
Erich

You can edit the wps to show whatever you would like or to change the fonts.

While Playing Screen.  Check out the wiki on the rockbox website.
