1. I completely restored my ipod with itunes, stopped ihelper in the task manager. 

2. Downloaded and ran https://files.freemyipod.org/~user890104/bootloader-ipodclassic-v8-designware/RockboxBootloaderInstaller_iPodClassic_v8+DesignWare.exe (BETA) to load the bootloader, I got a fail on the cannot load  rockbox.ipod, when it restarted,

3. then I downloaded http://build.rockbox.org/data/rockbox-ipod6g.zip unzipped and manually copied it over to my iPod, rebooted and it worked.

hope it helps.

Does this method still work? Also, the first link doesn't work. Where would I find that?

You could build it from source, or just use of the official installer if you don't want to do that.
