Unfortunately, "Ipod *NANO* 4th generation" is very, very different from
"ipod 4th generation". These two models are different from each other, and
the nano 4th generation was released some 5 years after the ipod 4th
generation, and has completely different internal hardware. Rockbox does not
yet support the *nano* 4th generation model. If your exact model is not
listed on the download page (which also has pictures to help identify the
devices), then unfortunately you will be unable to use rockbox on your

 Hi guys: I'm Gerardo from Mexico and because I'm going to install rockbox
on an IPod 16gb Nano 4th generation (hoping it works fine on these models
and seek experiences from you guys who've used it or are using it already)
have some beginner questions and yes I read the manual for the IPod 4th
generation models:
I'm a Spanish speaker and would like to have rockbox use the -spanish
interface; I understand from the manual that rockbox installs by default the
english interface, but I have as default in Control panel voices a spanish
voice so does Rockbox in this case look for a spanish version of its
interface or how does it work in terms of what english voice would it use to
speak while I configure it to Spanish? Where then to find the spanish
interface file and how to install it during the first instalation so when I
restart my IPod Rockbox speaks in spanish and remains in Spanish as default
when I turn it on afterwards?
I understand that the IPod nano 4th doesn't have radio (and recording
capabilities or does it? so even though it may or may not have it
originally, do these two features (radio and recording) still work ok?
Thanks in advanced for any info because I'm really excited of what rockbox
has to offer! definitely a lot more than the IPod itself! so looking forward
to learn from the list and as time goes maybe share my experiences.
