Folder browsing is my thing, I can see how it's not for everything tho.

Hey guys

 

I got a problem with the installation of rockbox at my 7th generation Ipod.

I just installed EmCore and it works fine. But now I can't save the .rockbox folder to the root directory of my ipod, because the file system of the formatted hdd seems to be "read only". At first I thought it's because my old OS (WindowsXP) was not able to handle this file system, so I tried Ubuntu and Windows7 but I was still not able to save the folder to the root directory. Then I tried to format the hdd to fat32 but it failed too.

And now another problem occured, because Itunes can not reset the Ipod any more due to a strange error (error 1439).

 

I hope you can help me

I'm at a loss actually why you would try to format a filesystem when something goes wrong like this.. confused.gif

 

I mean, you are FLASHING your Ipod, and not following the instructions to the letter might cause you to brick the Ipod permanently, which might have just happened. If i google the error you are getting now i find a LOT of hits. Anything (hopefully less evasive) you've already tried to overcome the error?

 

You mention you've tried other OS'ses, but don't mention if you also switched PC's. If you did, have you tried installing Itunes on another PC and trying to revert to OF using that pc?

If your EmCORE still works like it should, choose 'reformat data partition' in the boot menu.

After this, choose 'run Rockbox fallback image' and when that's done booting connect to your computer.

It should be able to both read and write, so you can copy a newer rockbox version.

 

Edit: if that doesn't work, you could update your EmCORE version to r862, the log says the following: Fix a rather obvious FAT directory creation bug. Check the first post for instructions. Although their website isn't working here at the moment, PM me if you want me to send it to you.

 

The great thing about newer EmCORE versions is that they have these options, which makes bricking the player quite difficult :)

I already tried ihts but there is still no access.

Im currently using this r859 Version. I didn't find any newer version. It would be great, if you could send it to me. I'll write you a PM regarding this ;)

I'm really tempted to put this back on the ipod, but would need to get a separate usb hard drive to do this (both drives I have are mac only).  Can someone answer if the m4b files are playable in rockbox yet?  That was the other issue I had.

 

I hate the new itunes with a passion.

 

Cheers

Whats the best way to backing up your ipod classic before taking the plunge to install the Rockbox? Hidden File Folder --> IpodControl backup? About to install this when I get home!

M4B has always been supported, at least assuming you mean AAC audio.  M4B is just a renamed MP4 file.

Can anyone access the builds.freemyipod.org page? I can't seem to get past the warning page.

Life Saver!

Now which one should I go with? I'm on r859 right now. Should I stay there or update to one of the newer ones?

Don't fix it if it ain't broken ;) But honestly, on three different Classics I've never seen anything go wrong with r868.

Well while I am using r859, my battery drains pretty quickly after 40%, so I'm seeing if updating EmCore fixes that.

A lot of pages to read though here...

 

I want to ask a question - I have a 6G and 7G (never even used the apple firmware on the 7G just 'boxed it fresh off the bat) Anyway, I just rockboxed them both, great stuff. ( I have been using RB on my 5.5G and Clip zip for some time)

 

Is there a preferred build which I should be using, of EmCore or Rockbox, and of the available builds is there any effect on sound quality or other functions? 

 

Thanks

I usually recommend that people use the official build, since its pretty much by definition more up to date.  With regards to the classic, at the moment theres really only one person working on the port and he just commits directly to rockbox git, so you likely won't find much different in terms of sound, except maybe things like extra EQ bands.
