    I tried to install Linux today on my iPod. I installed a fresh Ubuntu installation and transfered the files to the Linux machine (no internet) and I opened up Terminal and prepared the first commands for prepping the installation. I first logged in using "sudo su" and then I typed in my password. After that, I typed "cd /home/jared/Desktop/iphonelinux-demo/" and typed the next command. When I type ./loadibec openiboot-ipod.img3, nothing happens on my iPod. It's in recovery mode and plugged into the back of my computer but the screen stays at Recovery. Please help.

    You wouldn't think I would've had them already? Should've included that information in the first post. I'll edit it.

    It's upstairs in my room. My mom doesn't trust me with the Internet. I'll probably end up running a LiveCD on this computer and attempt, but do I really need to update my machine?
