I have an iPod 5.5G Jailbroken (but not with RockBox). Does anyone have a link for a guide to install Rockbox on an iPod 5.5G?
They have a handy auto install: [Register or Login to view links]
if it does ask for your version and there is no 5.5g, use 5g. worked for me.
Also, can anyone explain in detail how to do this? my 5.5g ipod is setup nicely with a boot loader, new classic firmware over the apple one, rockbox, and ipod linux. So I want to make sure what im doing is correct rather than re installing everything.
Don't bother, i've only logged in so i can ask a few questions, not an active member at all.

You have a ps3 on 3.41 handy to test on? I was going to test this later tonight on my friends ps3... because mine is updated to 3.50
as stated before... Plug in ipod... go into my computer and browse to ipod/.rockbox/rockbox.ipod and replace it with the modified rockbox.ipod which is attached to the first post...
turn off ipod...
Hard power cycle your PS3 (using the switch in back, or unplug it (if slim))
power on ipod (into rockbox) whilst plugged into your PS3 via usb.
Press the PS3 power button, followed quickly by the eject button.
Ipod should do something...
Then hopefully you can see the new "Install Package Files" menu option in the game menu.
I have not tested this myself... but this is what i'll be doing later?
This is a patch for rockbox which replaces usb functionality with that of psgroove.
Currently it is only functional on PP502x targets, and has only been tested on a 5th generation ipod video.
Additionally, the descriptors/payload is the vanilla psgroove data at the moment. I hope to eventually port Aaron's changes to build descriptors at compile time... or someone else can do this change and commit it.
"Porting" to other rockbox-supported devices:
Take note of which files contain target-specific changes (for pp502x):
File | Notes for porting
firmware\export\config.h | Ensure no other usb drivers will be compiled in
firmware\export\config\ipodvideo.h | Same as above, but for your target's header
firmware\target\arm\usb-drv-arc.c | Target's usb driver must support:
| 8 byte packet size
| *probably* needs to support full speed instead
| of high speed usb spec
firmware\usbstack\psgroove.c | Endpoint_ResetDataToggle() must be ported to
| your target
For the not-so-smart users, the rockbox patch is compiled directly into the OS, there is no rockbox plugin. The file listed includes a pre-compiled patched version of rockbox, though I don't know what target (iPod version) it's built for.
For those in the know, I've tried compiling a new version using Hermes' payload, but no luck.
