Subject: iPod nano non-responsive

iPod nano non-responsive

Hello everyone, I've got a bit of a problem on my hands here.

A co-worker of mine saw Rockbox running on my iPod video and fell in love
with it. She asked
me if I could install Rockbox on her iPod nano (1st gen, 4GB capacity),
because she loved
all the features it added, including video playback and games. I agreed, and
installed
Rockbox on her nano, along with a couple of themes. I even built her a
database
using the iTunesToDB util. All was well and good for the whole week, and
today she came
to me saying that her iPod is completely non-responsive. It won't start up;
the charger
doesn't work; and my PC refuses to recognize it or mount it.

Now I've got a problem. My co-worker is upset because she thinks that
Rockbox bricked
her nano. It was working perfectly when I installed Rockbox, and it worked
perfectly this
whole week. Does anyone have any idea what could have happened to her nano
for it
to just suddenly bork on her like this?
