This is the wiki for the freemyipod project. Freemyipod is a project for reverse-engineering iPods with clickwheel (no iOS devices) and creating tools and documentation so that other people can port alternative firmwares to them such as rockbox. Freemyipod is a relaunch of Linux4nano

Installing Rockbox on iPod Classic

emCORE is DEPRECATED, please use the Rockbox bootloader in order to install and run Rockbox on iPod Classic.

Getting started with emCORE (DEPRECATED)

  1. Check if your device is supported by the installer. Only iPod Nano 2G and iPod Classic 1G/2G/3G are supported at the moment.
  2. Follow the installation instructions if your device is supported.
  3. In case you encounter any bugs, please contact us in order to report them.

Updates

  • 2018-08-25 - The website software has been updated to MediaWiki 1.31 after about 2 months of downtime.
  • 2016-06-17 - The freemyipod project is becoming deprecated, as parts of the code is slowly being integrated in Rockbox. It is likely that no future development on the freemyipod project will take place.
