FS#12487 - iPod 5G freezes if powered off and then connected to host with USB

Hi all!
After 3.10 update I usually get my player frozen with usb plug icon if I connect it to any USB host while the player is off.
Steps to reproduce the issue:
1. Power off the iPod.
2. Plug it to Usb host. (tested with mac and Android)
3. Wait the system to boot.
4. It freezes with usb connect icon (no menu bar). Only holding Menu+Select help.

Thanks. Great firmware!

Supposedly confirmed to not be an issue any more with current builds.

I saw this happen once or twice in November 2011 current builds, but I can’t reproduce it now.

But I reproduce it each time I plug my iPod switched off to any USB host. Thanks.

Guys, I still meet this annoying bug. When I connect switched off iPod to computer it boots and freezes with usb plug icon.

Yuri, are you still running 3.10? If you are, try a current build and see if the problem is still present. I run current builds on my 5G 30GB iPod and I did not encounter this problem since November.

However the problem still remains. I tried current build 2dc891b-120213
When it freezes like that, I reboot it with MENU+SELECT while it is plugged to computer. It reboots and freezes the same.
