Rockbox happens to be impossible to use on my iPod 5G 60Gb because each time I launch the playback of a music file (tried with mp3s), it plays the file for a few seconds and then freezes completely and I have to reboot for it to work...

I use the last bootloader from this page :

I have tried with latest release 3.1 (2009-03-09) and with the Build r20254 (todays latest) and the results are exactly the same.

I even tried an automatic install but it isn't any better...

If anyone can help, that would be great cause I'd love to use something else than Apple's native crappy application... :(
This task depends upon

Have you tried using the 30GB build instead of the 60GB build?

Nope, hadn't tried that...

I just have, and... it seems to work just fine !!!!
I'll try on a long period of time to see if it doesn't happen later on or anything else, but for the moment everything looks OK ;)

A great thanks to you Paul !
