Subject: RB installed on 2nd gen nano (successfully !)

RB installed on 2nd gen nano (successfully !)

I was able to do it using my amd64 debian linux system. The key was
to let itunes/windows convert it over to FAT filesystem BEFORE trying
to install the bootloader.

I pretty much followed these instructions:

It's very cool. I'm in serious awe of the folks who figured out how
to hack the encrypted firmware. I equally disgusted with Apple for
doing such a thing.

I did see the dreaded "flash error" once, but it was right after
running rbox. I haven't seen it since.
