FS#12031 - iPod Nano 2G Freezing on USB / Charging
I have two iPod Nano 2Gs with the following problems, which are still present even on the latest stable build of 3.8 and latest daily build as of March 27th, 2011:
When Rockbox is first installed, immediately following a firmware reset in iTunes, the USB disk mode of rockbox works perfectly, as does wall charging using a USB adapter.
After one or two sessions of using disk mode or charging, neither one works. When I plug my nano 2g into my macbook pro, the rockbox shows a picture of a plug, but the status bar up top is missing and the computer does not recognize the disk. Rockbox is frozen, I have to do a menu+select reset.
The same behavior happens when I try to plug the rockbox in to charge.
This behavior was reportedly fixed in task 10894: http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/10894 However, note that the rockbox works fine for the first one or two connects, but stops working thereafter, so it might be that the ticket was erroneously closed. Also, I am aware that not all Nano 2G devices have this issue. I have owned one Nano 2G in the past that worked fine.
In order to get the rockbox to work again, I have to do a firmware reinstall using iTunes, and reinstall rockbox. But then rockbox only works for one or two connects before the problematic behavior resurfaces.
I am willing to help with testing to help resolve this bug.
