Title: Nano Wont boot iPod FW- keeps cycling
Post by: mildgold on August 27, 2006, 08:54:20 PM
Hey guys I've just installed rockbox onto a nano, it works great no problems with it except that when trying to reboot into the original iPod firmware it doesnt work-

what happens is it displays the "now loading original firmware" but it doesnt load it, it just starts over and keeps displaying that then starts over til i let go of MENU which makes it load rockbox again--

ive tried a different build and then i tried deleting the rockbox folders to see if it would load up the original- when i did that it did the same thing as above except with no rockbox to boot it just kepts cycling til i forced disk mode

any ideas how i can restore my ipods original fw and make this work? at this point i just want the original firmware back

You can simply use the Ipod firmware updater and restore it to factory settings.

As to why it happens, I believe you missed some steps during installation.

What error did it produce? It may be a split second screen but take note of it.
