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:
-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.
-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!
