can someone point me to guide or tel me how to uninstall emCore from iPod Classic 7th gen? I searched already for how-to but did not find a thing, I try to restore to original apple software.

Just put it into recovery mode then connect it to itunes (or maybe the other way round), and use itunes 'restore'.

 

PS still no-one has any ideas why I can't get emcore/rockbox to install on this one sdxc ipod (even while it worked fine on several others with different brand sd card)?

I tried to put in to recovery mode but how? Select + Menu just will reboot.

ok, got it now, just have to hold Select+Menu for about 15sec, the emCORE will restart few times then will go in to recovery.It was too simple for me to understand :) 

Thanks ThinWalls, iPod is restored

 

BTW, it was SDXC iPod 7th gen with emCORE, working one.

Well the good news is I got my new 850mAh battery for my 5.5G iMod.  Now it works!  So the logic board is still good.  Thankfully since I paid RWA to do the iMod. 

 

The bad news is the old batter was adhered to the back case in such a way, that when I pulled it off it tore the cord to my hold switch.  So I had to remove the rockbox boot loader.  Which doesn't bother me as I use the iOS software most of the time anyway.  I had to remove the boot loader to prevent it from booting into rockbox since I can't do so with the hold switch.  Now I need to find a new hold switch cable lol.

 

At least I got my iMod sound back. :-D

So I read a few guys on here have done this mod, fit a Classic metal front and click wheel on the iPod Video and wanted to try out for myself.  Ordered a grey front and black click wheel with grey center button and arrived today, did the swap on my 5.5g

 

I used the same 5.5g mid frame, just had to grind down 6 tabs with a Dremel with a small router bit.  All 6 holes line up good for the screws.  The Classic click wheel was very sluggish and barely worked on the video, maybe got a bad one, I don't know.  Ended up just using the 5.5g flex membrane with the inner and outer of the Classic wheel.

Are you guys changing click wheels because they are ruined by modding? Or is it because the iPods are broken to begin with?

wheels get changed when its scratched up, or you want a different color, or your going from video to classic or vise versa.

that looks pretty sweet. nice job.

my 256GB SDXC 5G now lives in the glovebox, connected to my truck's HU where i don't interact with the older iPod UI/UX. i really prefer the Classic OS, so i've got my 7G rigged up with a FiiO E11K for personal listening. great combo for my needs.

With tarken adapters, do they 'rattle' once installed???

Not if you do something to hold the/ down. Either electronically tape or place some cardboard behind it to wedge it in place.

That's a very broad question, too broad.

 

You would likely get slightly different results depending on which exact iPod model you are using, whether or not it has the thick or thin back cover, or even which SDXC adapter you use which may vary in thickness ever so slightly. Ditto the battery.

 

I've built several thick-backed Gen. 5.5s, and one Gen. 6 with a thin back cover using Tarkan adapters, none of them rattle.

Haven't found that.  What I _have_ found is that if you drop such an ipod or otherwise violently knock it, the sd-cf adaptor can come slightly out of the iflash, disabling the ipod until you open it up and reseat the thing.  Though of course bashing a hard-drive-based ipod like that might well cause the hard drive to fail permanently, so its not really something to complain about. 

I've tried securing with tape, but probably only some sort of superglue would avoid the problem and that presents risks of its own.
