FS#10442 - Audio adapters through the bottom connector cause system freeze in 3.3 on 5G iPod

I have a 30GB 5.5 Generation iPod Video.

I’m running 3.3

Any attempt to plug it into an audio-out adapter that runs from the bottom connector (rather than the simple headphone jack) causes rockbox to stop playing music and freeze. The scroll wheel will remain responsive as will the hold key. However, no other buttons or other input will respond. You cannot change screens or select anything or navigate other than to scroll up and down. A forced reboot must be done to regain control of Rockbox.

Any/all simply audio adapters that connect through the bottom connector have worked without problem in 3.1 and 3.2, Reinstalling either of those has this working again. Connecting to anything with 3.3 consistently causes this crash however.

If anyone can replicate this that would be great. If anyone has further questions for me or would like me to try trouble shooting in any manner, please let me know. I’m not a coder though so I’m a little new at this.

No one has mentioned this problem in years, and lots of people report that line out works fine.

Is this bug still present? I’ve heard no further reports of issues with ipod dock adapters.
