The released 1.4.0 binary is. You can build it as 64bit binary :)


--- Quote ---While older versions of MacOS should be able to run the app, in my  you need to launch Contents/MacOS/RockboxUtility inside the app bundle using sudo from the Terminal (i.e. with elevated rights), as Rockbox Utility will otherwise not work as expected.

This only applies for bootloader installation, and only for some players (Sansa e200 / c200, Ipods, though I don't know about the Ipod Classic). But it shouldn't "just quit" (assuming this means crash) -- if you try to install the bootloader in such a case without using sudo bootloader installation should just fail.
