Interesting. When I attempted the installation with just the zip or exe, it failed saying something about not being able to find the rockbox.zip file. So I downloaded the file referenced in your post and put it into the same directory as the other files from the installation zip. It allows the installer to proceed. I was able to confirm that the iPod now has the extracted .rockbox folder in the root of the device after the installation.
Edit: ill follow up tomorrow with screenshots relevant to what I ran into.
Did you get it to install on 2.0.5 in the end?
Haven't tried the new installer yet. The 2.0.4 I installed with the earlier method does seem to work perfectly. But didn't manage to get it to work with another 2.0.4...but it looks as if that one might have a failed hard drive...and it works erratically with the 240gb 2.0.4 ipod, sometimes it works, sometimes it refuses to boot.
I still have a 2.0.5 left that I might try the new method with.
