Post by: losindios on January 30, 2013, 01:15:49 PM
hello fellow rb users
\i recently installed rb to my 2005 g4 ipod photo
while all goes dandy and the battery indicator states full tank, i unhooked it from the dock, switched it off and after 2 days it`s dead
it wont light up, not even the apple on black background, nothing
no wall charger no usb charge do nothing
so where do i stand?

all previous posts i read , the users had at least the option to switch to disk mode and plug it in to charge, which obviously i dont

How long have you had it connected to the wall charger?

Ipods can take several hours (even up to a full day) before they show any life at all if the battery is really empty.
