Noted. I'll make sure to keep this in mind in future.

Cool, i'll update everything and see how things work. I'll be getting a Fiio X3 eventually anyways as I preordered it, but might as well enjoy rockbox in the mean time.

I don't believe they have gotten 7th gen ported yet. This thread is specifically for 6th gen (atm)

6th Gen, 7th Gen are the same for Rockbox. I have the latest Classic with Rockbox successfully installed.

Do you have a link on how you did it, or could you explain it in leman's terms.

^ Honestly, I cannot do better than post #1 of this thread. It is very detailed.

Thanks, I will give it another try.

Hello, is it possible to use a mac to install rockbox on the latest ipod classic?-Or is it just for windows?

 

I'm really struggling to choose between the latest ipod touch, or the classic!

If i could rockbox the classic from my mac so i can use good eq, then the decision would be made!

 

Thanks for any help.

What do you mean by that?

 

I'm also very anxious to get my 160gb classic rockboxed.  If it works I might buy a classic that doesn't have a bad drive. :-P

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to all involved in getting this working, my 3 year old 80gb Classic is now successfully Rockboxed and is making my IE8's sing! I've been so frustrated with my classic due to sound quality and I was not far off buying a new DAP with an EQ. You've just saved me a fortune!

Baaaaaah!  I'm dying to rockbox my classic.  I absolutely love the zip clip with rockbox, but i want to see if the classic is as good so i can get a new one without a bad drive. ha

 

Does anyone know how to get it on there with only a mac computer? :-/

I had no problems with my Mac. Just make sure the Classic is one that has a stable port.
