Title: Serious Problem removing rockbox resolved
Post by: donneke30 on February 19, 2007, 08:07:04 AM
I installed rockbox with firewire wich worked fine, but since a year i can only use firewire and no USB it's weird but it seems that the input of my Ipod is half-broken i tried several PC's and cables, but only firewire.
That fine with me, until now, i can't use rockbox, my PC doesn't detect the device, and i can't reboot to original firmware, so wich leaves me with not that much:) anybody got an idea, maybe something like a real hard reset (not menu+select, tried that endlessly) it's an IPod mini 1st gen 4gb

Force it into disk mode, then you should be able (assuming no hardware issues) to attach to your computer with either USB or firewire:
