Title: Putting Rockbox and Ipodlinux on my 5g Ipod(Ipod has been modded with IPW)
Post by: Wargod18 on January 21, 2007, 02:43:40 PM
1st i just want to make sure i put rock box on my nano everything went fine. but i am worried about my 5G i have a lot of info on it. Is there any chance that rockbox will erase any of it?

2nd i modded my 5g firmware with Ipod wizard, will that cause any problems?

3rd If i put IPOD Linux on do i have to do it before or after Rock box?

1) Yes, there's a chance if you, not Rockbox, do anything wrong in installation, and then need to do a Restore to solve = All data will be erased.
Rockbox does not erase nothing, not to be that you it commands.

Ipod linux WILL erase your music partition (all your songs and movies put on by iTunes) and possibly every thing else so make sure you back up your ipod first.  And I recommend that you do Ipodlinux first because then you can just put rockbox in the root of your ipod after you have linux installed. ;)
