Title: uninstalling on a 60gb video ipod
Post by: p1r473 on March 15, 2007, 04:54:33 AM
ok..so i have rockbox on my 60gb ipod video..and i was setting up a data base or something..(loading the songs) and then i started playing a song and it got to 17 seconds into the song then the ipod froze and the song stopped playing so i tried turning the ipod off and nothing so i unplugged the usb port from my wall charger and the ipod turned off..now the ipod wont turn on at all when i plug it in the computer it says please wait very low battery, i just replaced the battery about 3 days ago and i know the battery isnt finished because its practically brand new..can anyone help me get my ipod back to the apple firmware?

thanks

Turn hold ON, turn hold OFF, hold Menu+Select for about 30 seconds (and I mean this amount of time literally, it make take less, but it can take as much as this much.) Do this while the iPod is plugged into the wall or a computer.

If it doesn't do anything, do it again. It should work if you keep trying it.

Of course you could have bought a defective battery.....  Sometimes those replacement batteries are junk....  Depends on where you get it from.
