FS#13253 - Unable to shutdown ipod 4G Greyscale with long press of play button. Version: 2d85c72151-201030

Using Rockbox version 2d85c72151-201030
On an ipod 4th Generation (Greyscale)
Hardware revision 0×00050014 PP version: PP5020E

I’m unable to shutdown rockbox by long pressing the play button on the clickwheel as instructed in the manual.

The same on IPOD 4th GEN COLOR 40 GB


Perhaps an obvious question; is the power/data cable connected when you are trying to shut down?

(I'm unable to recreate this on the mini2g, which is nearly identical hardware-wise to the 4g greyscale..)

Indeed a very obvious question, no problem!

The Power/Data Cable isn't connected when i try to shutdown the ipod.

This could be a hardware problem i better investigate sooner than later.

Also my apologies for replying after a whole month.
I should respond a lot faster the next time.
Sorry if this caused any inconvience.


One more question – are you using an iFlash (or other sort of) SSD adapter?

If you are, please try a recent nightly build; a fix in there for iFlash-equipped player might have solved this shutdown issue.


Git master plus this patch should do the trick:
