    hey im having some troubles with this too. i did everything that you said to do and it created more files in the folder "ipodloader" (yours was ipodlinux) but nothing changed on my ipod. (btw its a 5g 30gb video) i want to get the boot screen so i can pick linux or apple instead of holding the rewind button at startup. also i do not know how to put games onto my linux (such as idoom or iNES) in all, i do have linux on my ipod but i am clueless on how to get programs on it. please help, thank you

    That's what I did and it doesn't work. I typed in download ipod_fw.exe or ipodpatcher.exe. Am I searching for the wrong things? If I am then tell me what am I suppose to search then. Thanx.

    My iPodLinux lags REALLY bad. Always has. Is there a fix for this or is this normal?

    I did go to rockbox.com and I do not know where to go next. I tried wiki and manual, etc. I don't see them. Where are they? hmmm...

    Yea I know, but I don't think it should be lagging as much as it is...oh well though I think I'm just going to stick with Rockbox and iPodWizard for now. ;-)
