RE: ipod photo stalls at apple logo

Well, the iPod classic seems to be your next device.. Seriously, it's the latest and probably last iPod, which will support rockbox in forseeable time, though it's more bulky. If you really dontn want that, then i believe some of the nano ports might be progressing, at a much later stage. Does seem less developed on, than the classic at the moment. This is referring to any nano above the 2g, which seems to be quite stable, and running smoothly.
