Switching ipod from rockbox to apple firmware (and back)
Now that I've installed Rockbox on my new iPod (30GB 5th gen, and thanks
everyone who helped me find the file I needed), I'm pretty happy with it,
except for one problem.
Since I can't (yet?) watch videos under Rockbox, I have to switch from the
Rockbox firmware back to the original Apple firmware whenever I have a
video I want to see. Switching back to Rockbox isn't too hard, except
that when I do, all my settings have reset. It's showing me files instead
of the Tag Database, I have to rebuild the Tag Cache, I have to reset the
theme, etc etc etc.
Is there any way to switch firmwares without resetting Rockbox? Am I
doing something wrong in the switch? (All I do is restart the iPod holding
down the Menu button to go to Apple, and then use Menu+Select from Apple
to reboot and get into Rockbox).
