Warren,

Rockbox does not work on the iPod nano 2nd gen at all. The internals are
totally different
from any iPod we've ever seen; no PortalPlayer chip was used in the device,
it seems.

If you're up to helping out with the porting effort, then check out this
forum thread:

Maybe you can help contribute to the process, but make sure to read the
thread
to see exactly what is needed.
