Onward Science!

Just to be clear, when you upgraded to r868, you used this file: emcore-installer-ipodclassic-r868.ubi

and the instructions under

Updating

EmCORE

 

from the OP in this thread, yes?  If not, what method did you use?  I ask because of the FAILED message under iPod Classic for r868.

 

Thanks!

EDIT:

Went ahead and did it. It's all good :-)

The sound quality as opposed to capacity is really what I'm interested in.  Many arguments out there as to the best sounding iPod.  Macintosh 11/10 rated all the available versions and had the Wolfson DAC chip in the 5.5 as best.  Other articles indicate that the 7G is more accurate but the 5.5g is warmer. Regardless the 5.5 is a stable Rockbox port and I found it easy to load and have had no problems with it.  I have newer iPods with more memory (120g) but I am concerned with stability in the newer iPod's with Rockbox.

As regards updating EmCORE, backing up is wise no doubt. (I already have a mirror image of my music on an external hard drive so that was not an issue for me). However the update was simple and utterly non-destructive. Just follow the instructions...  :-)

 

Good luck!

 

Would you be so kind and post the link to the page that contains the official release.  I cant seem to find it and i think i would like to try it too. Thanks

Bro I got a 5.5 and I put newest version of regular ass rockbox on it and it sounds phenomenal, u don't gotta go crazy and besides u ain't gonna brick it cause it partitions the drive so you can boot both rockbox or regular os anytime u want. Took me a total of 2 minutes

Ok I found two culprits for my issues:
 
1. I usually make sure I use the USB ports on the motherboard for this kind of stuff. Turns out, since it's USB 3.0, it actually gave Windows trouble detecting the DFU device. Plugging in to a front USB port (which are USB 2 and connected straight to a USB 2 header on the motherboard) helped with DFU detection.
 
2. The latest of the recommended "rockbox with patches" version caused the USB drive detection issue (version rockbox-with-patches-a010b7cM-130217.zip )
The versions which allowed my iPod to be detected were:
 
-fallback rockbox version
 
-rockbox-ipodclassic-r31516-20120102 straight from emcore wiki: http://freemyipod.org/wiki/EmCORE_Releases/r859
 
-previous patched rockbox version rockbox-with-patches-93130beM-130110.zip
 
 
So in this case I recommend not following the instructions on the first page and avoiding the latest patched version, and going with the emCore build or the older patched version.

Just go for the latest, I guess. Those releases are updated daily, so you can install a new version everyday! biggrin.gif

Yes that was it.

 

Glad that it worked out.  :-)

That is very interesting, putente. That is not where I got my official release.

 

I am using the one on the page here.

 

http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/IpodClassicPort

 

Scroll down to the link:

 

Development builds are currently provided by the rockbox build system:

 

http://build.rockbox.org/data/rockbox-ipod6g.zip

 

That zip file might be the same thing as the daily build or it maybe more "official". Not sure...

 

Edit: Link is working now

Congratulations! (and I agree ^)

 

Hehe, thanks guys! Just received the group present, a Classic 4G with 2048GB SSD and 3200mAh battery, you shouldn't have! ;) As a celebration I gave the first post a small update (with input and questions from the last few pages).

 

Btw, those are indeed the same builds:

http://www.rockbox.org/dl.cgi?bin=ipod6g

http://build.rockbox.org/data/rockbox-ipod6g.zip

The second link automatically downloads the most recent daily build, you can compare the revision numbers.

I want that battery!!!  tongue_smile.gif

 

But I hear the 4G iPoo will only play Billboard's Top Whatever Lists.  Seems a terrible waste of the 4G LTE + Satellite tech built into it  blink.gif

Been using Rockbox on a classic 80GB for a few days now (emCore 868,  Version a010b7cM-130217). Everything seemed to be working fine, but today I realized I can't get my ipod to connect to my mac anymore. I did al the upgrades on a Windows 7 machine (backupped and restored my music with it), now I'm trying to add some more music that's on the mac and it just won't recognise it.

 

Is this a known problem or can it be fixed? I tought I read something about it in this trhead, but cannot find it anymore. My ipod completly freezes and I have to reboot it (select + menu for 15 seconds)

post #2265 of 3087

firstly i assume i can rockbox the latest in the classic range http://store.apple.com/uk/browse/home/shop_ipod/family/ipod_classic yes?

 

secondly, does anyone know if there will be any issues using a rockboxd classic with a zeppelin air or similar dock? the only thing i'm thinking is i will have to boot into the ios part of the classic each time. is that correct?. http://www.bowers-wilkins.co.uk/Wireless-Music-Systems/Wireless-Music-Systems/Zeppelin-Air/explore.html
