    Is there any point of trying to get these OS's for the iTouch, if there's a need i could work on them, just ask, i know there's no point but why the hell not, lol.

    Cheers,
    Ben.

    If you could work on them, by all means please.

    There are various advantages of Rockbox over iPod OS.

    Rockbox gives you the folder music management. It also allows more music equalizer control which I found very useful for getting more bass.

    If it can be made as an application so you can access through the iPod menu, that would be cool.

    if hears a list of compatibility none as yet but just look every now and again for updates http://ipodlinux.org/Project_Status all so if it ever dose get done the first thing that they have to hack is the hard drive which would open up so many more possibilities but i think that the touch will have to become main stream before they do anything about it

    I tried Rockbox and iPod linux on my iPod 4G and they were both awful. Ipod linux couldn't play podcasts and rockbox's interface was awful, not to mention the fact that the battery lasted for about 25% of the normal time.

    Oh and I'll say it again, tone down your signature Allipodhax

    Not sure why you would want to rid the device of it's gorgeous OS X operating system and put Linux on it.

    I'd be alot happier with an iPod Touch Jailbreak that works on Windows and third party apps.
