    My friend has an iPod Classic 80GB.
    I'm not sure if its a Classic, or a 5.5G, how can I tell?

    I recently told him that its possible to "jailbreak" it (yes, I know, its not jailbreaking).

    Ive known about RockBox for a while, but never looked into it, because I've never had a need for it, since I only have an iPt. Before I download it, I want to know if it even supports the iPod Classic, which version to download, and just basically the jist.

    Also, are there any better alternatives? If so, please let me know. I would post this in "Other iPod Models", but nobody pays attention, and its the OP, so I dont think I can get yelled at

    Rockbox (or any softmods) only work up to 5.5G.

    •You'll know it's a classic (+6G) If it has the anodized (stippled) aluminium front.
    •It's a 5.5G if it has the white/black + clear acrylic combo front, and if there's a search function.
    •A 5G is the same, but with no search.

    None that I know of, I think the closest you'll get is removing the volume cap, but I'm not sure that'll work, or why anyone would want to do it.

    So no other custom software other than RockBox exists?

    google ipodlinux... I remember something about that. RockBox is pretty good though... got a kid at my church that plays doom and stuff with it.

    I played around with both ipodlinux and rockbox, it is possible to dual boot them I think. They were both more functional than the stock system, but at the same time slower (at least rockbox was, from memory).
