my first ipod and rockbox , and its a mc293 6gen 160gb
i downloaded and installed macports for snowleopard ,
i downloaded mks5lboot
i downloaded bootloader-ipod6g.ipod
ALL INTO /Users/mookee/Downloads ... my downloaddirectory
and i managed to to open rockbox utility 1.4 - finding the device - choosing additional themes and starting the installation
that worked fine and its basicaly:
Connect your iPod in normal mode (iTunes/file transfer).
Download Rockbox Utility for your operating system.
When Rockbox Utility opens, select the checkbox named Show disabled targets, and point the installer to your iPod's mount point.
On the installation screen make sure that Rockbox is selected and Bootloader is not selected (it should be grayed out anyway). You can install themes or the game files if you want.
Start the Rockbox installation.
Download the bootloader in .ipod format.
Download mks5lboot for your operating system. Alternatively, you can build it from the source code.
You need to have package libusb installed using Homebrew (brew install libusb) or MacPorts (port install libusb) in order to run mks5lboot.
so far so good
NOW i am stucked:
Start mks5lboot from a terminal with the following command-line: mks5lboot --dfuscan -l. It should scan for DFU devices every second.
i just entered " mks5lboot --dfuscan -l " into mac terminal but it only says command not found...
what now please?
further: It is important to stop iTunes (dock icon -> Quit) and iTunesHelper (using Activity monitor, find the process and select Quit or Force quit if it keeps restarting) BEFORE continuing to the next step. Otherwise iTunes will put your iPod in wrong mode, and you will not be able to proceed with the installation.
Put your iPod in DFU mode
When the device is detected, press CTRL+C to terminate the scan process, and proceed to the next step.
Start mks5lboot from a terminal with the following command-line: mks5lboot --bl-inst path/to/bootloader-ipod6g.ipod, providing the correct path to bootloader-ipod6g.ipod that you downloaded earlier.
When the instllation is complete, you should have Rockbox up and running!
the next critical point here will be
mks5lboot --bl-inst path/to/bootloader-ipod6g.ipod
is it mks5lboot --bl-inst /Users/mookee/Downloads/bootloader-ipod6g.ipod
whats wrong ?
please help !)
thanks best christoph
