I was staring at this today and adjusting this on my Rockboxed iPod when I saw your post.  

 

Another tip:  You can adjust the top menu (only the top menu) by creating a custom config.cfg file.  Check the manual.  I was accidentally hitting "Recording" all the time (which doesn't make sense with the hardware), so I got rid of the menu item via a config file.

thanks for posting that. i just made a custom config to remove recording and radio.

I had the same problem. Use the latest build by alderoan. The links are on the first page.

 

EDIT: actually, here you go. Make sure you copy the patch files as well as the .rockbox folder.

Thank you for this Rockbox version.  My iPod was detected by my Windows 8 PC and I was able to transfer all my music without a hitch.  

 

With that being said (this is a general question to toss out), does this mean I am limited to this older build (which is what I assume this is?)  Or does anyone know how I can get the newer builds working?

Just to add to my previous post...I have Googled a bit about how I can sort multiple albums by a single artist by year on Rockbox, but cannot find a proper method.  The best I can do now is see a sorted list of albums by an artist sorted alphabetically.  Is there any sort of program that can re-arrange the albums by year, or will there need to be some tag editing on my end?  All my songs have their respective years associated with them, since I had edited their information when I was previously using iTunes.

Would the FiiO E11 work with Rockbox? I just nabbed a pair of 650's for a good price.

maybe someone can shed some light on my situation. i've been using a rockbox ipod 5g fine now for a week. i accidently plugged in the ipod to my pc while the hold switch was on. this booted it into the apple firmware. i press and hold select + menu to reboot with hold switch off. booted into rockbox, now when usb is plug pc doesnt recognize, battery just charges. rebooted into apple firmware, same thing. booted into disk drive, just says "ok to disconnect."

 

anybody have any ideas why my ipod is not being recognized now by my pc in any mode?

 

edit: i have tried 3 different cables, usb ports, all known to be working.

 

edit2: just tried doing everything again but on a macbook. still not recognized.

Greetings!

 

I was wondering if someone was able to roll back their Ipod Classic 6G to the apple firmware. I believe it's a little too buggy for me. I have been breaking my head for two days and I can't get iTunes to recognize Rockbox or the Ipod in DFU mode.  I followed the steps on the emCore webpage on how to uninstall it but it just can't happen.  Does anyone have an idea of what could be wrong?  My windows 7 recognized that it has an Ipod in DFU mode inside the device manager but that is pretty much all I get.  Does anyone have the same problem?  Thanks in advance!

I love the idea of rockbox, and really wanna try it on my 7th gen classic, but I have some questions first to ask.

1.) I read in the FAQ, that the media won't be erased. But I'm a bit confused - does that mean, that all of the playlists made in iTunes get transfered over to rockbox or is that simply the files stored on the iPod as external HDD? The playlists are very inmportant for me, as well as the whole library, because the iPod is the only place, where I have got my music organized. The iTunes library on my PC got screwed up and I've been using 3rd party software to get music on my iPod ever since .

2.) I do DJ sometimes and I use the iPod and its playlists as a music library. There is the DJ software called "Traktor", which can play directly from the iTunes library. Just like that - you can plug in your iPod in the USB and use it's library instead of iTunes. So my question is - will this feature remain the same? Will the rockboxed iPod playlists appear in Traktor?

 

Thanks!

Try with a new version of iTunes. Although it was recommended to reinstall with an older version of iTunes, I solved de problem jast upgrading to a newer version.

Anyone else having freezing issues with the latest builds? I have to rollback to an almost month old version to get it working properly again

Yup, D/L the daily build yesterday, and every time I go to the playlist menu I get a loud screeching noise and the player freezes. Worked for a while just playing regular tracks, but now the music will play but nothing else works (buttons/display/etc). Rolling back to Jan. 1 build. That one seemed to work fine for me.
