ipodpatcher needs to get an updated binary …

have you build the bootloader from svn or downloaded the binary? The binary hasn’t been updated since the addition of the 1G / 2G ipods.

I’m too noob for this territory. I’ll check back in a year and see if the project is ready for “users.”

The project is quite “ready for users” (as long as you have some technical knowledge). The problem in your case is simply that ipodpatcher hasn’t been updated yet. This should be done in the near future.
