Our crystal balls are in the shop, so we need details like:

1) What model iPod is it you're using?
2) What operating system?
3) What steps have you followed in the manual so far?

A blue 4GB nano is a 2nd generation nano, which will not work with Rockbox. This is listed on the front page:

Apple: 1st through 5.5th generation iPod, iPod Mini and 1st generation iPod Nano
(not the Shuffle, 2nd/3rd gen Nano, Classic or Touch)

There are no other open firmwares that'll run on a 2nd gen nano.

Since the original question has been answered, I'm going to go ahead and lock this thread.
