    I have tried several different things to change the font color but with no luck. I will keep trying until I get something. As soon as I get it I will post.

    I have made a all new firmware with the background hack and color font. I edited my first post with a all new guide and new links. Sorry for the small picturs I'll fix that later. Enjoy your color font.

    Refer to the first post in this tread for the new firmware with background and color font.

    ok i used a diffrent firmware, theres a firmware that makes your 5gen ipod video look like the new ipod classic and that one worked, just gotta make sure which version of ipod you have, i was having troulble with mine due to the fact i was trying to install firmware for 5g and mine is 5.5 when i use the firmware for 5.5 it worked, i now have my ipod looking like the classic, it took me several tries and many ipod reset but i got it to work, you can find both firmwares here,

    you still need ipodwizard 1.3.7 the newest one, and the other downside of this firmware they havent got coverflow to work on it yet.

    I'm not sure but I think the only way is to restore or iPod to factory using iTunes. There may be other ways.

    You open it with iPodWizard. Read step 2, it's all there just read the steps.

    Tell me what you are doing. Start at the very beginning, becouse first you ask how you open the file. Then you said when you do that you get a "error writing firmware! code- 1,22, 13836800". If you are opening the file you should not get a writing error. I believe you're doing something wrong. Give me a little more detail.

    O' it just hit me you may have a 5.5G iPod. But still give me some more detail.

    I believe you have a 5.5 Generation iPod and not a 5th Generation. The BHCF 5G Firmware only works on the 5th Generation. irongiant had this same problem, read a few post up. He found a firmware that works on a 5.5 I would try that, but it is totally up to you. Both the 5.5 and 5th Generation look the same just different types of firmware. If I find anything I will post it. Untill then good luck and I hope you get it.

    Everytime I click Write to iPod an error message appears that says " Error writing firmware! Code: -1, 22, 13836800" Why does this happen? What do i do?

    Others have run across this same problem. You have a 5.5 Generation iPod and not a 5th Generation. Read all the post above you will see what I'm talking about.
