i recently purchased two ipods from craigslist, one is a ipod video (30gb) and the other is an ipod nano (2gb)
the ipod video was horrendously slow and would take five minutes to boot, so i formatted the main partition in fat32, now it boots quickly and runs alot better
however, i have been trying to install rockbox on this ipod and the bootloader refuses to install, i have tried rockbox utility as well as ipodpatcher, both are throwing this error
[INFO] Using internal bootloader - 51988 bytes
[INFO] Moving images to create room for new firmware... (it hangs here for a while)
[ERR] Short read - requested 8388608 bytes, received 53248
[ERR] Image movement failed.
[ERR] --install failed.
both the ipod video and the nano return with this error, i have tried different cables and usb ports
i also have a 60gb video that works and runs rockbox just fine, i never had any issues with that one, what makes this so different?
any help would be appreciated if any additional information is needed just ask
