> I am Jain Basil Aliyas, an computer science engineering student from India.I have an "Apple Ipod Nano, 4th generation". I suppose Rockbox have no support for Ipod nano 2,3 and 4th generations. I possible could you please help me in extending Rockbox into these models? I think Apple Inc. have made significant changes in the Hardware of Ipod Nano 4th Generation by including accelerometer and all those stuffs.

Unfortunately the firmware on that device is encrypted, and as far as I know there is no known way to decrypt it. Without knowledge of the decryption, it would be hard if not impossible to reverse engineer the hardware or upload a changed firmware. If you want to hack this device, I think you'll need to explore the firmware format and try to figure out how to decrypt it.
