finally saved up enough money to do this, now im encountering problem after problem after problem. it is simply impossible to do this without a good guide. ive read all these posts, tried everything i can, i just am at a loss as to what to do. i know this is an old thread, but is there any chance anyone here who has a lot of experiance with these things is still around? i could use some help with my (numerous) problems.
to name a few, both my ipods reboot about 40 secs after disk mode, my computer sometimes recognises my ipods, and sometimes doesnt, and when it does, the information is either all wrong or it is not accessible at all.
ive tried using different cords, ports, computers, reinstallations, nothing works.
on a side note, is it possible to install rockbox on my ssd without even having apple firmware? if so, then i may be able to just skip all that mess and confirm that my problem can be somewhat fixed before i have a nervous breakdown. i have been at this for well over 7 hours and i need a break.
i can chat in pm, over skype (preffered) or any other way that is more comfortable to you. thank you.
