The Rockbox iPod port page


Install

Full installation and uninstallation instructions for all supported devices are in the Rockbox manual.


Bootloader

There is a working bootloader that can load and run Rockbox. For more detailed information please visit this page. The iPodPatcher is what installs the bootloader on the device, and more information on that can be found here, and here is a list of the iPod bootloader error codes.


Simulator

There are currently simulators for all Rockbox compatible devices. A simulator can be useful for seeing what Rockbox looks and feels like before installing as well as testing out your homemade themes before putting them on your player. They can be found here.
