Re: ipod photo stalls at apple logo

tried with current build too but same result. I also noticed that
holding down menu does not boot me into the apple firmware which makes
me suspect that it is the bootloader rather than rockbox itself which
is failing.

any help to narrow it down further much appreciated.
