01:18:46Tornemeandyou: ipodpatcher requires that the hidden apple firmware partition be present and intact
01:19:09meandyouthat is why then... thanks torne
01:19:09Torneit sonuds like you are on Windows so the easiest way to make sure of this is to use iTunes to restore the ipod to factory settings
01:19:20DerPapst1meandyou: restore your ipod with itunes first
01:19:22Tornethis will format the entire thing and also renstall the apple firmware
01:19:26DerPapst1then you can reinstall rockbox
01:19:29Tornethen ipodpatcher should work
01:19:38meandyouthat is why i did not want to do :-)
01:20:25meandyoui tried using a VMware but the VM crashes after the itunes update of my firmware...
01:20:43meandyouany other solution WITHOUT itunes?
01:20:43Tornethere are manual restore instructions on the wiki
01:20:53Tornefor linux users
01:21:03meandyoui dont have linux...
01:21:14meandyouonly on a vm also :-)
01:21:24Tornewell, they're generic really
01:21:29Torneanything with dd and other unix-like tools :)
01:22:07DerPapst1meandyou: what os are you using then?
01:22:23meandyoua not so famous one : windows XP
01:23:03meandyoui am going to ubuntu then...
01:23:30 Join faemir [0] (n=faemir@
01:23:40meandyouthanks by the way :-)
01:23:44DerPapst1ah and you don't want to install itunes?
01:23:54meandyoui hate it...
01:23:59Torneyou can do the manual restore instructions on cygwin, i believe
01:24:07meandyoui even think that the word hate is not strong enought
01:24:07Tornebut a linux livecd or similar will do as well
01:24:31meandyoujust takes time then :-)
01:24:39Torneit relly is easier to just use itunes, though :)
01:25:14meandyoui think i have a mac somewhere...
01:25:26meandyoustupid me...
01:25:38 Quit advcomp2019 (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
01:25:40DerPapst1that would do the trick too (manual restore and itunes restore)
01:26:02DerPapst1though a hfs+ formatted ipod would be the result ;)
01:27:20TorneWhich also doesn't work with rockbox, but is easier to do by hand, admittedly :)

20:07:06dedThe ipod mounts now and comes up as VFAT 80 Gb. However rbutil is
20:07:06ded producing the following error message: "[ERR] Partition layout is not
20:07:06ded an ipod". Can anyone suggest how to proceed?
20:07:45Tornedid you erase and format it by hand?
20:08:07Tornethe original firmware needs to be properly installed on the hidden partitino, with the right partition layout
20:08:12Tornethe easiest way is to restore in itunes
20:08:24Torneor follow
20:10:37dedTorne: Thanks a lot. I will try itunes first.

20:54:23Unhelpfuln1s: no, arm7tdmi doesn't stall for that like arm11. the only thing i can think of is that the ldr of the table address in the inline version might be a cache miss. it's still hard to say how calling an external function, with register saves, etc, can possibly be faster, though.
