Exactly. Or, drag and drop the files onto the iPod and update the database. In the latter case, your files are not visible to the original OS.

Should playlists be intact?  I plan on doing this but I don't think I will have time until Sunday.

I don't use playlists in iTunes, so I don't know whether they are visible in Rockbox (I doubt it, though).

Hi there,

I found this interesting patch:
http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/12522?string=classic

Would someone be able to compile rockbox with this patch?

Thanks!

So, 3.13 is not available for Classic 6g!??!

 

But a development build is available here:

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

 

I have 3.11 on my 6g - will I get a better Rockbox by upgrading? Worth the chance? Anyone tried?

Yeah, no numbered releases have been made for the 6G since the port is still too incomplete for that.  3.11 doesn't run on it either, so probably you just have some old development build.  You can update to a newer development build or keep using the old one.

Hello everyone,

 

This is my first time in this forum, so please excuse my "noobness".  I am having some trouble flashing emCore onto my iPod (80GB 6th Gen.).  I have been following the guide from freemyipod step-by-step and, once I reach the step where it is required to save the "installer.ubi" onto the iPod, I encounter all my problems.  I am able to save it to my iPod, meaning my iPod is properly booting UMSBoot, but when I eject my iPod I run into a number of different problems and am unable to get the emCore Boot Menu to show.  Here is what I have done so far and what has happened:

 

With iTunes

-Saved a few different emCore builds (r859, r880) to my iPod, but when I eject the iPod, I am greeted with the message "Booting UBI File..." (and this stays there forever unless I hold Menu + Select and reboot the iPod).  I tried a few times with both iTunes 11 and, thinking an older version of iTunes would work, dropped my iTunes all the way to version 9.  Same problem when trying multiple emCore versions.

 

Without iTunes

-iPod was correctly read by computer and I could boot the UMSBoot no problem (the bootstrap works fine).  But when I save any .ubi file to the iPod and eject the drive, I am either greeted with a frozen screen (lines through the screen, in which case I have to reboot) or am greeted with a *PANIC* error message followed by a different error message every single time I attempted this (also forcing me to reboot).

 

I always made sure to stop any processes (AppleMobileDevice and iPodService) and made sure that iTuneshelper.exe and iPodservice.exe (or some variation) were ended.

 

SO...sorry for the absolutely long message, but as you can see I literally have tried everything I can think of (unless there is something else).  What is irritating is that I had RockBox on my iPod less than a year ago, but at the time decided on staying with Apple's firmware (bad choice, IMO).  So, you can see why not being able to load RockBox now is driving me crazy now.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

That's strange, so none of the Emcore versions are working on your Classic? And are you safely removing/ejecting the usb device after copying one .ubi file?

You could run diagnostics on the original firmware: hold menu+select until it reboots, then quickly hold previous+select to enter the diagnostics menu. Maybe you can find something there. Emcore is only using the flash memory, so if it results in an error it could mean something is wrong with it.

And maybe you could compare md5 sums once the emcore installer is on the Classic, before unplugging.

Yes, none of the EmCore versions are working.  Also yes to your second question - I am always safely removing/ejecting the usb device after copying only one .ubi file.  I ran the diagnostics and did both an automatic test and a manual test to check each and every aspect - everything checks out fine.  I am using the iTunes Bootstrap - if I "Safely Remove Hardware" with the usb device and a .ubi file on the iPod, nothing happens on screen.  If I follow the emCore instructions (which show to merely "Eject" the drive by right-clicking on it and clicking "Eject"), I get stuck at "Booting UBI File...", which stays there forever.  Seriously, I do not know why I am having such a problem at this stage.  I have Googled this very problem countless times and cannot find anyone who has ever been stuck at this very step.  Frustrating...I've been through most of this thread also with no luck on the issue.

I had the same problem you're having with the UBI file not booting. I didn't test to see what exactly caused the issue, but my few guesses are:

 

1) Check to make sure you're using USB 2.0 slots only.

2) Re-install the DFU Recovery Driver

 

If all else fails, you can try another computer to install it. I couldn't get emCORE to boot on my laptop, but it worked immediately on my desktop. That's the only reason why I think you and I had those issues.

 

If you still don't get it working, I'll mess around with my ipod to find out what's going on, but I won't have access to my desktop until possibly wednesday night.

I was having the same problem. Wouldn't boot after I ejected the ipod. I was ejecting from the taskbar. When I went into My Computer and ejected the drive from there, it worked.

@Raikel - Thank you for your answer.  I am indeed using the USB 2.0 slots on my laptop.  Also, I did re-install the DFU driver already (I had it initially installed, tried installing emCORE without iTunes and using the custom recovery driver from freemyipod, and then a few days ago reverted back to Apple's DFU driver after I had uninstalled the custom driver).  Unfortunately, I am away from home currently (studying in a different country and am on school residence), so using another computer to try this out would not be ideal for me.

@lock67ca - Thank you for your answer.  Unfortunately, I have tried the method you have suggested multiple times and it always leaves my iPod at the "Booting UBI File..." message on screen before I have to reboot my iPod.

My IPod classic is rockboxed and I'm using it in my car connected to a charger.

I use the Car adapter mode, working quite well. Bur is there way to prevent the IPod to go in the USB mode without pressing the menu button while conecting or starting the car?

Regards Hummel

 



Is there a way to reverse it so that pressing the menu is required to go into USB mode and the default option is to stay in play/charge mode?
