If it's an 80GB then it must be a 5.5 and won't run Rockbox.

If it's a 30GB, it might be a 5.5; see below.

If it's any other size, it isn't a 5.5.

Fifth Generation iPod (Late 2006) (also known as iPod with video)

You can distinguish the Fifth Generation iPod (Late 2006) from the
original Fifth Generation iPod by the last three digits of the serial
number. The Fifth Generation iPod (Late 2006) serial number's last three
digits will be one of the following: V9K, V9P, V9M, V9R, V9L, V9N, V9Q,
V9S, WU9, WUA, WUB, and WUC.

The above "(Late 2006)" 30GB/80GB iPods - the so-called 5.5 generation -
do not (yet) run Rockbox.

cheers,
