Hi. Very briefly, I'm looking at putting a 128GB SSD into my 5.5. Once it's done will I be able to simply install Rockbox and copy over my collection or are there any Apple shenanigans I'll have to consider? I'm assuming the ipod firmware isn't stored on the HDD? Will Rockbox boot ok from the SDD?
Any help and advice is very gratefully received.
Basically after you put in the new SSD you need to connect the iPod to iTunes and iTunes will tell you that the iPod needs to be restored.
Once restored you can install rockbox as you would normally would with any other 5th Gen iPod, it works seamlessly.
No Apple shenanigans to worry about.
