Hey Guys,

Not much as happened lately because I've been busy with school, but today I have almost extracted the new firmware.
I've got at the firmware and image files but I too am having problems extracting rsrc.img file. Last time I did this on an iMac which I do not have anymore, so it looks like I need to buy a Mac.

That must be the problem I am having! All this time I have been working with 1.0.2

It seems someone figured out SilverDB file format for iPod nano 6G. Since 6G and 7G have lots of things in common, maybe this link will be helpful.

Check the earlier pages.

Pg. 2

BTW, HxD reads the silverimages file just fine and saves it to.

Edit (Again), what we need now is something that will extract the silverimage file and repack it back again. I found this tweet "bit . ly / 13cwYhh" -Zyxxeil

Yes, it's what we called "hecadecimal" ;) learn a little about it because you'll need it to hack our Nano

Firmware Extraction Guide

This is a guide that I've found to extract the firmware for the iPod nano 7th gen. Note that it is completely possible to do on Windows by installing cygwin to get tools like dd and make to compile extract2g. The .img file is extractable via WinImage.

Here is the link: bit.ly Ro42ge (Can't post links yet.)


Note: dd also seemed to work in the guide if I replaced iseek with skip.

What is our next step then? (I can't get any further than extracting firmware.mse because the dd command does not work on the 3 different distributions and computers of ubuntu that I have tried and I don't have a mac)

So earlier today I tried restoring my iPod Nano 7th Generation to a modified firmware I made. I took the N31.bootloader.rb3 and deleted it and replaced with a bootloader bin file from an iPhone 2nd Generation firmware. Well let's just say that it didn't go over to well and the iPod basically freaked out and stayed in DFU mode and wouldn't mount. I thought I bricked it until about 5 hours later and it started working again. So I'm not sure what happened then I guess it tries to boot a certain number of times until it gives up and re-formats itself.

Depending on how daring I get I might try several different bootloaders with this and see what happens. Oh FYI if you do this you either need to change info in the manifest.plist or change the name of the bootloader to N31.bootloader.rb3. If anyone is daring and wants to test things out for me I'll send you a firmware file. I think my next attempt will to try the old Nano 5g bootloader it looks really similar so I'll see what happens there.

Apps?

Is it possible to make apps for Pixo OS? I'm not expecting games or anything like that but simple display based apps such as metronomes (I'm a musician) or calculators would be nice.

Yes.....it's possible. Could you please at least try to get your posts in the right topic. I'm aware Nano runs off of a basis of Pixo OS, but we don't call it Pixo OS it's Apple OS. Yes apps can be made for the nano.
