Rockboxing an iPod . . .

Okay, I would like to Rockbox a certain iPod Classic Photo. I know it has a stable port, but I would like to know what the risk for this process is, and what the safest way to do this is.

I would appriciate knowing this. 

Have you tried exploring the Rockbox site, or perused their forums. Seems to me that would be the best place to find your answers, such as:

Stable ports -

 

  • Apple: 1st through 5.5th generation iPod, iPod Mini and 1st generation iPod Nano
    (not the Shuffle, 2nd/3rd/4th gen Nano, Classic or Touch)

 

I know it’s stable . . . I just want to know the risk of failure to install it and screwing the whole thing up, rendering it useless.

Do you know something the Rockbox folks don’t?

The list on Rockbox.org goes to the 4th generation, then to iPod Photo/Color, then the mini . . .

 I think it’s talking about the new Classics. 

 

Just what is “Classic”, in Apple-speak?  Is this a euphemism for dull, heavy, and kludgy?  The original 'Pod, or any one of six following generations of “not so much Classic as the Classic”?

Is it like, say, a Coke “Classic”?
