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 or Linux. Freemyipod is a relaunch of Linux4nano.
What can I do with my iPod Nano 2, iPod Classic or older iPods?
There's an upstream Rockbox port for these devices. Go use that.
What can I do with my iPod Nano 3/4/5?
Not much (yet) unless you're an embedded developer :).
We have a stable tethered exploit (wInd3x) which allows early, untethered and safe (no permanent modification) code execution on Nano 3G-5G. This in turn allows you to run U-Boot and an early Linux port or experiment with reverse-engineering/modifying the original firmware, OSOS.
What can I do with my iPod Nano 6/7?
Nothing, other than helping us find vulnerabilities to get code execution on them.
