Is there any way to modify the config so that Rockbox boots automatically after (far example) 10 seconds? Wintermute 13:41, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

there is Fastboot which boots Rockbox as soon as the ipod is powered on --User890104 09:54, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Original firmware

it is still not supported, it might be possible to have it working in the future --User890104 09:54, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

ATA error: -11

When i click on rockbox i get this error. Is there anyway to fix this? I just installed EmCORE.

For others this was caused by a too old RockBox, so you might wan't to try upgrading it. --Benedikt93 08:16, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

Unable to restore Apple firmware on iPod Classic 1G

I need to revert to the Apple firmware but I am unable to enter DFU mode anymore. I tried following the instructions for the Classic here:

But the iPod just endlessly resets if I hold down the Menu and Select buttons. Can a uninstall EmCORE option be put in the tools menu like the Nano 2g version?


Did you plug in your iPod to your computer? Are you sure that you've been holding the combo for 10 seconds continuously? Adding an uninstall option in the menu wouldn't help at all BTW: You would have to restore with iTunes anyway which is only possible through DFU mode on the classic. The classic uninstallation is actually an improvement over the one used for the nano 2g. --Farthen 11:57, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Do not play video

Ipod Classic 80GB did everything according to instructions, everything was installed, it works! but does not play video, not to see all files avi, game Doom in the startup process hangs on init video. What should I do?

  1. Rockbox supports only MPEG: PluginMpegplayer I'm not sure if it's implemented on the classics, you can give it a try with a sample file (encoding settings for iPod Video)
  2. Doom is known to be broken on the classics and is not fixed yet
