1) Apple have changed the layout of the firmware partition on the Nano. Users running v1.2 of the Apple firmware need to follow verbatim the instructions for the ipod 5g. I've updated the IpodInstallation wiki page. If users don't do this, the Apple firmware refuses to display any music.

2) (as pointed out by bgmrk in IRC), the first paragraph in the "Running Rockbox" section in installation.tex doesn't make sense for ipods. The Apple firmware doesn't have on/off features - users can't turn their ipod off. Advice on rebooting the ipod (holding MENU+SELECT for 4g and later ipods, MENU+PLAY for 3g and earlier) should probably replace it.
This task depends upon

I just changed (2). For (1) I'm still missing (needing) a hint how a user can distinguish between the firmware versions.
