On the iPod 5g Video 60gig, when plugging in the wall charger the device goes into USB mode, so you cannot use Rockbox when the charger.
This task depends upon

I don't have a wall charger, but either way holding menu down while plugging the iPod in should solve that...

Yes, I've found that as well. As the previous comment said, a workaround is to hold MENU as you insert the charger - but that's just a workaround.

More work needs to be done to correctly detect 1) USB connection; 2) Firewire connection (where applicable); and 3) Charger connection.

This happens also on iPod mini 2G.

NOTE: This applies to all 4th Gen and later (mini 1st & 2nd Gen, Color/Photo, Nano and Video) ipods - they have identical USB detection in Rockbox which fails to distinguish between a USB connection to a computer and USB connection to a wall charger.
