Nano 2G

So are there instructions to getting this on my 2G nano. I would really like to test this.

Please see here: EmCORE_Installation/iPodNano2G User890104 20:23, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Voltage reduction on classic

Reducing the CPU core voltage on the iPod Classic has been disabled. Battery life might be adversely affected.

Is it good or bad? (:

In general, this is bad (and should eventually be handled differently) as the CPU now consumes more power than actually necesarry, but for now, it solves problems where it didn't work properly due to a too low voltage. --Benedikt93 13:03, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Next release

When next release is planned to be out?

When some of the remaining bugs are fixed. User890104 20:23, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
I mean not specific dates but at list some more general info. Like - it'll planned to be out in week or two (: Hoping sound quality bug will be fixed as well... At least a bit. Tnx. Vasyl.

Guys! Any update on this (: Please...

Sound Quality Improvements


Are there any sound quality improvements planned to be done? Maybe some hardware twiks. New ipod chip really sux!

I've got some talk with the7 due to this issue, but topic seems to be deleted

Sound Update

Hi Vasyl

Good reading info - thanks! I had similar problems (bit of an audiophile meself) but I've used the BioEq libraries: http://www.head-fi.org/wiki/bioeq-rockbox and they work great both with my sennheiser headphones as well as my philips dock. The sound has a natural fullness now, which is improved once you adjust the freq response to the natural response of the speakers.

I'm now running an undervolted ipod classic with emcore r755 (note: the latest rgb666 changes don't work for all ipod6gs apparently - had to comment mine out as rb screens weren't initalising properly) getting 10+ hours off a single charge with great sound.

Hope this helps!

Cheers jkbuha

Last Rockbox Build

Hey! Can last Rockbox build be installed or RB release is tied to the EmCORE release?

I'm not a Rockbox developer, but I personally haven't had any issues using the latest builds: http://download.rockbox.org/daily/ipodclassic/ Obviously you do so at your own risk as with everything else. It would be nice to have a developer confirm this is okay with the latest EmCORE release. Thanks.
Tnx! Will be waiting for developers update
