Firmware: Ipod nano 2G v. r27354-100709

Steps: Manual unpack of .zip file to ipod directory
Installed bootloader as per manual

- Then after opening demos file, instant freeze;
-screen goes white
- message is " *PANIC* Stkov nand"
- Can only be fixed by hard reset (menu + select button)

NB- the above freeze ALSO occurs in PLUGINS/GAMES during the
boot-up of SOME GAMES. However, of all the games I tried,
"chopper" game does not freeze.

-Freeze also occurred exactly the same in ROCKBOX version 27345-100708 daily build. Manual installatation.

Repeatable: YES, is repeatable

Files and relevant information:
- Nil
- Freeze

I'm thinking this has something to do with a lack of RAM, or bad formatting?
Just putting it out there...

Thanks a lot for your time.
This task depends upon

I can confirm this bug (r27350).

The ipod nano unfailingly shows the "Stkov nand" panic message in multiple contexts (when selecting a menu item) approximately 30-60 seconds after startup. I have not succeeded in getting the version above to work for more than a minute or two.

FWIW, I built an older version of the firmware - r26850 (June 3, 2010). The nano works fine with that firmware. I have not yet had a chance to track down the faulty commit in past month's SVN logs.

Thanks to everyone who works on rockbox!

I can confirm this as well. Happens with both the iLoader bootloader and the Rockbox one.

Using the latest daily build which is r27424.

I also can confirm it.

@Matt or anyone else: Could you send that firmware version to me, or possibly put it somewhere where everyone with the problem can access it. Thanks.

Using build r27644 on iPod Nano G2.

This is the -r26850. Worked with my nano2g, but build it following the manual and using the automatic tools, not knowing what i was doing... (you know while compiling the compiler, and using the default options for the build).

This problem will becorrected, if the iPod is switched off in the regular way by timeout.

As of r27841, I am not getting the crash any longer. Thank you Michael!

Nevermind. It all worked fine, but going into Theme Settings after a few minutes of fiddling still gave me a *panic*.

Here is the -r268450 for nano2g, works 4 me.

I've built the latest release (r27956) and did a temporary fix on it to stop the crash. You can download it here
I'll post a .diff of what I did. All I did was remove "call_storage_idle_notifys(false);"
