THATS NOT WHAT I WAS GOING TO DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then what were you going to do?
i wasnt going to drag linux on!!!!!!
------------------double post merged------------------did you get it to show up in finder or is that photoshop?
That picture wins so much.
There is a much more involved process to installing linux on an ipod touch than just copying over a few files and restarting. A file browser won't give you access to critical components that you need to get to such as the bootloader. Nobody wrote drivers or ported anything either: the iPod Touch is ARM and desktop linux is x86 which are two different architectures. You can't put a Dodge engine in a Ford.
As it is now, the best Linux on an iPod Touch consists of a console that you can't even type on right from the screen, and this IIRC is not even publicly availible.
Use this as a reference: Did someone else do it yet? No. You know Linux and the iPod Touch inside and out? Probably not. Then you can't do it. Wait for someone who can.
If you want me to get technical, just ask.
if you're determined..
and i'm convinced you won't manage it
finder will not display it. full stop.
use something like Total commander, with a iPod plugin
Wrong :> Linux Kernel is one, and it have multi architecture support (including ARM) . Whatever thing decide is Linux is Desktop or something else is application that architecture support is individual for each.
Theres tons of drivers for ARM devices too (including PowerVG, GPU of iPhone), so that not a problem. Problem setting that kernel modules/drivers to work and also iPhone/iPod Touch got own custom staff so theres need to be code modifyed, and problem is that there no documentation of it.
epic, f***ing epic
What the hell is everybodies problem? He is trying to get an answer to a question! Why on earth can't you just give it to him rather than complaining about it not being possible. Are you able to do it? Why not deny another the opportunity?
