Hi folks

 

>My name is Michael, I live in the UK, and I think I may have just made
an expensive mistake!

 

>I've just looked at the website and I now see a problem. It says that
Rockbox doesn't work witht eh Classic, is this true? If yes, will it
soon work or is there anything I >can do to make it work? Is there an
alternative program I can buy or download that anyone knows about.

 

Hey Michael,

 

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but unfortunately (at this time)
there is no possibility of getting rockbox on the iPod Classic.
Unfortunately, I don't know of any alternative program that would help
you out.

The problem is that the firmware of the Classic is encrypted and this
needs to be broken before a port can begin. Also, the machinery inside
isn't documented, as far as I know.

 

>Help me out here, I'm desperate. If I'm not using this thing in the
next couple of days then my wife will start asking why not, then she
will realise that this was a waste of >$260, and I'll be stuffed.

 

I guess you could check Loot or Exchange and Mart to see if you could do
a straight swap for a 5th (or 5.5) generation model??! Best of luck.
