Hi Sharon,

Right now, we don't know when or if support for the iPod Classic will ever
happen. No one seems to be
working on it at the moment, and the firmware on the newer iPods has been
encrypted. Without knowing
how to sign custom code, there's no way Rockbox will be seen on them.

The same applies to the 2nd and 3rd gen iPod nano. The iPod Touch and iPhone
can have Rockbox as an
application; visit our forums for more information.
