when i press and hold the play button to shutdown the player, it just restarts each time... have reinstalled rockbox... tyred to idle power off and it just restarts like normal shutdown method....

i guess a possible solution is to shut it down using the apple firmware but i cant figure out how to boot into the original firmware anymore... id rather figure out how to fix the problem, than have to continually revert back to the apple firmware to shutdown, and then reboot using the rockbox firmware...

rockbox version: r18355-080827
ipod video 30g
This task depends upon

please try with a current build. The one you mentioned is rather outdated.

satone, if you start the Apple firmware (set the hold switch as fast as you can when the ipod is starting) does
it indicate that a charger is connected even if no charger is connected?
