Title: new ipod question
Post by: onocentaur on May 10, 2007, 03:16:31 AM
Is it possible to install Rockbox on a brand new iPod plugged into my linux pc, or do I need to initialise it using a windows machine first?

Thanks!

Yes it's possible to install it.

No you don't need to do anything to it with iTunes first.

You may need to reformat to FAT32 if it's formatted as HFS+.  There are instructions in the Wiki.
