I wound up sifting through some old archived logs and found a convo that led
me to the file indexes. I downloaded the installer-ipodclassic.ubi file and
it reformatted and everything so that's a step forward. Now I plug it into
the computer it says I have to reformat the hard-drive before I can use it,
the options it gives me are NTFS and exFat. What do I format the allocation
unit size to? Quick format or no?

Thanks again! Happy Oktober!

in my opinion you must try to reinstall apple soft, and if the installation
will be ok, rerockboxit...

Subject: Ipod classic boot issues

I have a 3g 160gb new ipod classic that had running rockbox a month ago. I
received a message on my computer when I connected the device to format my
hard-drive, I later received a msg saying partition hard drive plug it in
and fix it. I re-partitioned and now I can't make it boot at all, the
fallback image is corrupted so it can't boot from that. I've followed the
instructions for umsboot for recovery. It goes through the installation and
the flash then goes back to the root menu, back to square one. I've tried to
drop the installer directly into the umsboot changing the rockbox.ipod to
.ubi but I get a "*panic* data abort" white screen. I'm fine with completely
wiping the hard drive i have the data backed up I'm just not savvy enough to
figure this one out. I tried going into HxD and modifying the rockbox.ubi
file that def didn't work. I've tried dropping the rockbox.ubi file by
itself into the umsboot but it staying on the umsboot black screen with
"booting....." and doesn't go anywhere.

Thanks for the look/help happy Oktober!
