You can restore the firmware unless you remove a small (32MB) boot partition. THen you've ruined your iPod and voided the warranty.

Thats not true, the usb and disk drivers and boot loader(or at least part of it) are on the flash rom, just boot the ipod up in to disk mode and run the apple updater if you nuke the boot partition.

Hi. I am a proud owner of an iriver, a knock-off of the ipod. We have developed a very similar hack to change the images. Could someone please send me a zip with all the images, or some main images, for me to try on my player? Ill try and post the reult.

Also: what s the screen resolution?

Yeah, the H3xx series were not a knock off, but were well in advance, and some 2 years later, still are...

They offered USBOTG, FM radio built in, built in microphone, and line in, two headphone out jacks. They had a colour screen in July 2004, before the iPod, and video in November 2004.

The image chaging program H300mod was in place by early 2005.

I'm also having a hard time releasing the clips. I can easily get a pick or tool inside, but when i move it around i dont feel the clips releasing. What am I doing wrong?

I appologize for not reading through all 39 pages. But is there a version that would work with the 5.5G?

Right, this is a iPodWizard thread, but those who use it dont seem to come here anymore.

I dont know about iPodWizard, but do know about Rockbox. It does sort of work with the 5.5G, but not very well yet, and not with the 80Gb version at all.

This will change over time.

For a taster see the screenshots linked in my sig below, but also read the disclaimer.
