Rockbox-on-iPod Installer for Mac OS X
Rockbox on the iPod is in a very early stage of development - so expect a few rough edges. It is functional on the iPod Color/Photo (those are the regular-sized iPods with color screens that are NOT capable of video playback), the "4G" grayscale iPod (the one with the clickwheel), the iPod Nano 1st gen and the iPod Video (5G). THIS INSTALLER IS ONLY FOR iPOD VIDEO! I might get around to make one for the other...less important generations
As far as i know this installer works, i installed it for my iPod Video. If it doesn't and/or breaks your iPod i take no responsibility for it..Your problem
This installer assumes your iPod is FAT32, if it isn't goto This Page Here for Instructions
OK lets get started!
Download the program from the bottom.
Download the correct Rockbox.zip from the current builds
Step Two) Open the program and follow along with it...
Step Three) Wait a little...so whats your favorite book?
Step Four) The installer should be done (if you followed the instructions)
Step Five) Open Terminal and type:
"unzip rockbox.zip -d /path/to/iPod"
"mv Rockbox.ipod .rockbox"
Step Six) Quit, Eject, Stare at your iPod with amazement

This installer has been provided by Virtualball
This application was made with Applescript and should work on most (if not all) versions of Mac OS X. I would give you the source, but i dont think i saved it
If needed, i will make it again (it took about 5 minutes :-P)
