Re: Rockbox 3.14 released! automatic update issue

Hi Rockboxers --

I have a question about the new 3.14 as it might pertain to the (officially
unstable but very usable) iPod Classic 160 GB. My iPod Classic 160 GB is
currently set up with a special rockbox build which allows it to reliably
be mounted on my Macbook. I learned about it originally from this forum

I'm not technically astute with such things but I understand that it works
by fooling the Macbook into thinking the iPod is not an iPod. At the time
that I installed this build, I had been using Rockbox on this iPod Classic
for a couple of years but was never able to mount it on my Macbook -- I had
to do all my file management via the PC I use at my job. So this special
rockbox build was and continues to be a godsend.

Some of the new features on 3.14 sound really tempting to me. But I'm
wondering if I'll be able to mount my Rockboxed iPod Classic on my Macbook
reliably if I update the iPod Classic to 3.14. I see from the final post on
the thread I linked above that the responsible person is hosting this
special build on a different URL now, and the last iteration of it was on
March 5, so maybe I should just wait until he makes a 3.14 version of it?

Sorry for all the technical details I probably got wrong. Long story short,
I want to continue using my iPod 160 easily on OSX but hope to get access
to the new RB features.
