FS#6169 - Late-2006 iPod Video ("5.5G") patch
Opened by Robert Carboneau (Kalthare) - Thursday, 12 October 2006, 00:06 GMT
This patch seems to make Rockbox run properly on the 30GB late-2006 iPod Video. The 80GB model still doesn't work.
When using the patch, after you run the configure script, add the line "#define FAT_2K_SECTORS" to autoconf.h
I haven't included the patch to ipod_fw.c, which is available in the forum thread: http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php?topic=6475.60
What this patch does is modify the FAT code so it will read a filesystem with 2048-byte sectors from a device that has 512-byte sectors. The modified code is used by both Rockbox and the bootloader.
A great deal of thanks has to go to amiconn, who provided a vital bit of insight.

Reason for closing: Fixed
Additional comments about closing: 2048-byte sector support is now in CVS. The official 5g builds now autodetect the sector size, so will work on both the 5g and 5.5g (but not the 80GB yet).
You still need the unofficial bootloader (or compile your own from CVS) and unofficial ipod_fw.c to install Rockbox though.
