FS#7863 - Display does not update if iPod plugged in USB port while booting Rockbox

I have been meaning to report this bug since the beginning of the year, possibly, and it still hasn’t been fixed:

When my iPod 5G (30Gb) is plugged in via the USB Port of my computer and I press a button to boot the iPod, Rockbox loads, then freezes at the Menu.

Boot mode is not entered and hitting play doesn’t start the last song played, but touching the wheel makes the LCD Backlight respond, and the device shuts itself down after the idle time…very strange.

I am using the iPod Linux bootloader to boot the Rockbox.ipod file. Rockbox works when the USB cable is inserted during the loading phase (I inserted it while it was ~ 25-50% loaded) and diskmode is entered, but not if the USB cable was already inserted before the device was turned on.
This may be true for the Rockbox bootloader too…but I haven’t tested.

Use the official build / bootloader ONLY when reporting bugs. We do not accept bug reports if you are using unofficial / 2rd party software.

If you are reporting the issue since the beginning of this year why don't we have an entry in the tracker from the beginning of this year? Also, we don't accept bug reports when using Loader2.
