1. PLEASE do not ask a new question in a response to an
existing discussion. If you have a new question, start a
NEW e-mail. Your question about dual-booting your ipod now
appears in our archives in the middle of a thread entitled
"rockbox on the sansa e200."

2. You can dual-boot your Nano using the official
bootloader. Instructions for doing so can be found in
Chapter 3 of the Rockbox Manual:

http://download.rockbox.org/manual/rockbox-ipodnano/rockbox-buildch3.html#x5-190003.1.2

A number of other Rockbox platforms also support dual boot.
  Instructions for dual-booting on those platforms is
contained in the corresponding section of the Rockbox Manual
for each player on which that feature is supported.
