Hey, there!

My name is Lala Ionuț, I live in Romania and I own an iPod Classic 1G (160GB) and can't wait for Rockbox and/or iPodLinux to be available for it. I am willing to do non-destructive testing in order to help the project.

PS: If anyone will read this... Is it possible to update the 1G Classic (160GB) to the 2.0.x firmware of the 2G/3G Classic? (I know that the hardware is almost a perfect match.) I think it could be done by getting an image of the HDD of an iPod Classic with the new software and overwrite it to the older one. Has anyone tried this? Can it be done?

Thank You very much for all your work!

Yes, this should be possible and in fact we have done something similar with the 4G. One time we copied the contents of a 8GB Nano 4G and gave it to me to put on my 16GB Nano 4G. It booted fine. But the thing is the Classic 2G has some headphone hardware that the 1G does not, and this could cause a crash when booting or using. We are more interested in copying the Classic 2G firmware to the Classic 3G since the 3G ships with firmware that has the notes vulnerability patched. Cmwslw 05:18, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
