IPOD (ALL MODELS) iFlash Adapter Issues [SOLVED!?]

<< < (3/17) > >>

TeslaMark:
I think i have stumbled upon the fix for this on the Ipod 5.5G.  Or at least a workaround.

Here are the steps to follow.

starting with a working iPod

1) Open Aomei Partition  tool and clear all the partitions

2) Format as Fat 32 if it lets you (if it doesn't dont worry as iTunes will do it).

3) Restore with iTunes for Windows

4) iTunes will leave the partition in 2 parts, a small partition with the bootloader inside and the large partition of the remainder of the drive labeled Ipod.

5) Open Rockbox installer and only install the Bootloader

6) Reopen Aomei Partition Tool and Format iPod Partition as Fat 32

7) Go back to Rockbox installer and install the main program and all optional additions but exclude the Bootloader (as you already have it)

8 ) Once its done eject the Ipod and hold down the centre button and the Menu button until the apple logo appears, then immediately hold down the centre button and play/pause until the iPod boots up in target disk mode.

9) Create a Folder called Music and copy all music folders inside.

10) Eject the drive and it works without skips and without crashing with errors. 

Hope that helps.  Remember the key is to transfer files to the iPod in disk mode

Everyone still fighting with these iFlash adapter issues, please try a daily build from 2020-07-13 or newer, and let us know how it goes.

Just sync your music using the original firmware rather than in rockbox mode.  That works fine for me and for most people with the problem you are having (it's mentioned all over this forum, in multiple threads).  The problem is with rockbox writing to the disk, so syncing in rockbox mode creates all those problems (building the database can have trouble also).  As long as rockbox doesn't have to write much to the disk it works fine.

I tried with one the latest daily build for Ipod Mini 2g. File playback now seems to work. But when initialising the DB I get this error. It will then fail to boot once and then successfully boot.

That smells like a DB bug to me.
