Is this possible on a second generation iPod?
I know you would need a dongle, and I have one.
It's possible, and you wouldn't need a dongle, it's just extremely risky. You could actually brick your iPod, this is the one way because if you accidentally delete/overwrite the wrong OS partition, your f*cked.
I thought thejohnnyboi said that you would need a dongle?
Are there any tutorials?
it's different firmware etc
Didn't everyone say it's impossible to brick your iPod?
Almost Impossible. This is messing around with partitions, and if you accidentally delete the wrong partition...
ok.. so i'd imagine that for the tutorials that were provided, u just switch 1.4 with 2.2.1 and 3.0 with 2.0.... correct? meaning that all that stuff from the ramdisk is coming from 2.2.1, but the iPHUT (i think its called) is still coming from 1.1.2...? this is very confusing.. i'm surprised that no one has tried this, or made a converted tutorial... and where is all of this stuff done? the mounting and dismounting? is that in mobile terminal? thats what i gathered..
Why not use openiboot? Im sure that would work. Im not a dev so I wouldnt even no where to start, but if you use it to dual boot linux, then it should work for booting 3.0?
wtf is openiboot?...
EDIT: ok, so i know what openiboot is.. its a linux based program for the iphone and ipod.. ok... i get that.. so... i do all of that in openiboot? i'm still a little confused.. so i have 2 ssh into my ipod and put some of the files from the 2.2.1 ramdisk into one of the folders on my ipod and then run openiboot and do all that? idk.. its confusing.
------------------double post merged------------------ok.. so i'm askin chronic.. see if he knows about this.. which i'm sure he does....
Well it's been possible on the old firmwares, I don't see why not on 3.0
