Welcome to the Rockbox Technical Forums!
its just that loader 2 loads to a black screen
and the ipodpatcher one works only with a modified build for Rockbox.
I had previously put a CF card into a 2nd gen iPod mini (A-Data Speedy 16GB), and that worked with Rockbox right out of the box. I figure that slower cards are better meant for DAPs that use microdrives for storage, and faster cards are needed for DAPs using larger 1.8" drives.
Regarding this matter, the first card I tried using was an A-Data Speedy 4GB card (that's all I had at the time). The card worked fine in the OF, but Rockbox threw up an ATA -1 error on startup. I had to use a dirty, kludgely hack to get Rockbox to work: commenting out line 320 of firmware/target/arm/system-pp502x.c got Rockbox to run, but with unusual effects (no album art, buffer behavior was wonky, etc.) The Transcend 133x 32GB card that's in my video now works without needing this kludge.
I'm willing try any tests you may have for an ipod 4G with a 16 Gb AData. It is the DEV_RS that I comment out. After that I could put it in my Video for testing, as well.
A timing issue, maybe?
dreamlayers,I applied your patch to my ipod4G and it booted right up, extremely quick. Thank you so much. Sure hope this can get committed right away.Do I still need to play with the timings? I don't quite understand what I am doing there, so a little more explanation would help me.
