FS#13198 - ipodpatcher and Rockbox Utility do not work in macOS Catalina (10.15)

Neither of the tools, ipodpatcher or Rockbox Utility 1.4.0, work on macOS Catalina.

Catalina removed 32bit support.

Using ipodpatcher generates the following error:

bash-3.2$ ./ipodpatcher
bash: ./ipodpatcher: Bad CPU type in executable

And Rockbox Utility has a white circle with a line through it indicating that it does not work with this version of the OS.

(see attached file)

That's because those binaries are 32bit (actually, ppc + i386), and since 32bit support was removed those don't run anymore.

In the meantime, there are 64bit only test binaries here:

Unfortunately simply rebuilding as 64bit is problematic for Rockbox Utility since the current source tree doesn't build directly. Once those issues have been resolved a new release will fix the actual issue.
