First draft of updates to manual to include the installation instructions for the new ipod bootloader. Still needs a lot of clean-up. Also flipped the installation instructions for the bootloader and the firmware build for all SWCODEC platforms. Instructions for installing the build now come before instructions for installing the bootloader. This should eliminate some confusion from those who tried to boot Rockbox after installing the bootloader but before installing a build, and received the -1 error.

-\subsubsection{Windows users}
-\begin{enumerate}
- \item Download the following two programs and save them in the folder just
- created. These programs will be used in the next steps:
- \begin{itemize}
- \item \url{http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/ipod/ipodpatcher.exe}
- \item \url{http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/ipod/ipod_fw.exe}
- \end{itemize}
- \item Locate the \dap{} by opening a command window. You can do this by
- clicking ``Start'', ``Run'' and typing \fname{cmd}. Press Enter to
- execute that command. Now change directory to the
- folder you created and run the following commands:
- \begin{code}
- ipodpatcher 0
- ipodpatcher 1
- ipodpatcher 2
- ipodpatcher 3
- \end{code}
- Keep increasing the number until the \dap{} is located.
-
- The output for an unsuccessful attempt to contact the \dap{} looks like
- this:
- \begin{code}

- Remember the number that corresponds to your \dap{} -- in the
- following steps, \emph{N} should be replaced with the number just found.
- \item Now, extract the firmware partition currently on the \dap{} with the
- following command:
- \begin{code}
- ipodpatcher -r \emph{N} bootpartition.bin
- \end{code}
- \note{You should keep a safe backup of this \fname{bootpartition.bin} file

-\subsubsection{Mac OS X users}
-\begin{enumerate}
- \item Download the following two programs and save them in the folder just
- created. These programs will be used in the next steps:
- \begin{itemize}
- \item \url{http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/ipod/diskdump}
- \item \url{http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/ipod/ipod_fw}
- \end{itemize}
- Start a Terminal and type navigate into the folder you created. Before
- you can continue, you need to ensure that Mac OS knows that the
- \fname{ipod\_fw}
- and diskdump files you downloaded are executable programs. To do this,
- type the following command:
- \begin{code}
- chmod +x ipod_fw diskdump
- \end{code}
- \item Locate the \dap{} by running the following command:
- \begin{code}
- mount
- \end{code}
- The output will look something like this: \fixme{Add full example}
- \begin{code}
- /dev/disk1s2 on /Volumes/DAVE_S IPOD 1 (local, nodev, nosuid)
- \end{code}
- In this example, the \dap\ is located at /dev/disk1s2 Remember the
- location of your \dap\ -- in the following steps, /dev/disk1s2 should be
- replaced with the location just found.
- \item Before continuing, the \dap\ must be ``unmounted'', which is
- done with the following command:
- \begin{code}
- diskutil unmount /dev/disk1s2
- \end{code}
- \item Now, extract the Apple firmware currently on the \dap{} with the
- following command:
- \note{The last part of the location is left out.}
- \begin{code}
- ./diskdump -r /dev/disk1 bootpartition.bin
- \end{code}
- \note{You should keep a safe backup of this \fname{bootpartition.bin} file

-\subsubsection{Linux users}
-\begin{enumerate}
- \item Download the following and save it in the folder just
- created:
- \begin{itemize}
- \item \url{http://www.rockbox.org/viewcvs.cgi/*checkout*/tools/ipod_fw.c}
- \end{itemize}
- Now compile it to an executable by opening a command prompt and changing
- to the folder created previously. Then run the following command:
- \begin{code}
- gcc -o ipod_fw ipod_fw.c
- \end{code}
- If you get the message that the command gcc is not found, you need to
- install gcc. How to do this depends on your Linux distribution, and
- you should consult its documentation for help on this.
- \item Locate your Ipod by running the command \verb|dmesg|. In the output
- something like the following should be seen:
-\begin{code}
- usb 4-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7
- scsi4 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
- usb-storage: device found at 7
- usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning

- Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 00
- SCSI device sdb: 58605120 512-byte hdwr sectors (30006 MB)
-\end{code}
- You need the device name of your \dap, which you can find in the last line.
- In this example, the \dap\ is located on \fname{/dev/sdb}. In the following,
- \fname{/dev/sdb} should be replaced with the location just found.
- \item Run \verb|fdisk -l /dev/sdb|. Verify that the
- output is similar to the one below:
- \begin{code}
- Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
- /dev/sdb1 1 10 80293+ 0 Empty
- /dev/sdb2 11 3648 29222235 b W95 FAT32
- \end{code}
- \item Back up the partition table using the following command:
- \note{The last part of the location is left out.}
- \begin{code}
- dd if=/dev/\emph{sdb} of=mbr.bin count=1
- \end{code}
-
- \item Now, extract the firmware partition currently on the \dap{} with the
- following command:
- \begin{code}
- dd if=/dev/\emph{sdb1} of=bootpartition.bin
- \end{code}
- \note{You should keep a safe backup of this \fname{bootpartition.bin} file
- for use if you ever wish to either upgrade the Rockbox bootloader or

-
+In order to make your iPod load and execute the Rockbox firmware you have just
+installed, you will need to install the Rockbox bootloader. Unless bugs are
+found in the bootloader code, or significant new feature are added, you will
+only have to perform this step once.
+
+The following instructions refer to the ``installation folder.'' For Windows
+users, the "installation folder" is assumed to be a folder in the root (top-
+level) of the C: drive called \fname{rockbox} (you will obviously need to
+create this folder yourself). For Mac OS X and Linux users, the ``installation
+folder'' is assumed to be the Desktop folder. But you can use any folder
+you wish. Note that these files should be saved onto your computer's hard disk,
+\emph{not} on your Ipod.
+
+\begin{enumerate}
+
+ \item First, download the \fname{ipodpatcher} tool to your installation
+ folder. You can download the \fname{ipodpatcher} tool for your operating
+ system at
+ \url{http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/IpodInstallationBeta}.
+
+ \item Next, download the following file to the installation folder:
+
+ \opt{ipodvideo}{\url{http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/ipod/bootloader-
+ video.ipod}}
+ \opt{ipodnano}{\url{http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/ipod/bootloader-
+ nano.ipod}}
+ \opt{ipodmini}{\url{http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/ipod/bootloader-
+ mini1g.ipod} or \url{http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/ipod/bootloader-
+ mini2g.ipod} depending on which generation your \dap{} is. \fixme{Describe
+ how to identify 1/2G}}
+ \opt{ipodcolor}{\url{http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/ipod/bootloader-
+ color.ipod}}
+ \opt{ipod4g}{\url{http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/ipod/bootloader-
+ 4g.ipod}}
+ \opt{ipod3g}{\url{http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/ipod/bootloader-
+ 3g.ipod}}
+
+ \item Next, open a command prompt (Windows) or terminal window (Mac OSX and Linux).
+
+ Windows users will perform this and the following steps from the Windows
+ command prompt. Start a command prompt and navigate to the isntallation
+ directory.
+
+ Mac OS X and Linux/Unix users will perform these steps from the Terminal.
+ Start a new terminal window and navigate to the Desktop folder (type cd
+ Desktop into the terminal and press enter). You then need to ensure that the
+ ipodpatcher program is ``executable'' by typing the command chmod +x
+ ipodpatcher and then pressing enter.
+
+ \item Connect your ipod to your computer.
+
+ If you haven't already done so, you should now plug your iPod into your
+ computer (via either the USB or Firewire cable).
+
+ \fixme{Notes about closing itunes, enabling the ``show ipod as disk'' option
+ in ipod, anything else?}
+
+ \item Find your ipod with ipodpatcher (Windows users only)
+
+ Windows users: Type the following command to search for ipods attached to
+ your computer:
+ \begin{code}
+ ipodpatcher \-\-scan
+ \end{code}
+
+ When ipodpatcher finds your ipod, remember the number it displays - this
+ will be the number you use to access your ipod in the following steps.
+
+ \note{Windows users require administrator rights for running ipodpatcher.
+ Either re-login as administrator, or open a command prompt running under an
+ administrator account by using one of the "Run as" features of Windows XP.}
+
+ \item Find your ipod (Mac OS X users only)
+
+ Attach your iPod to your Mac (using either USB or Firewire) and wait for
+ iTunes to open. When iTunes opens, close it down. In your Terminal window,
+ type the command mount and press enter. This will list all the disks (and
+ other devices) that are "mounted" on your computer. The last drive in the
+ list should be your iPod. For example:
+ \begin{code}
+ /dev/disk1s2 on /Volumes/DAVE_S IPOD 1 (local, nodev, nosuid)
+ \end{code}
+
+ In order to install the ipod bootloader, you need to "unmount" this disk
+ using the following command:
+ \begin{code}
+ diskutil unmount /dev/disk1s2
+ \end{code}
+
+ replacing ``/dev/disk1s2'' with the device name Mac OS has assigned to your
+ ipod. This may take a few seconds, after which Mac OS will say ``Volume
+ /dev/disk1s2 unmounted.'' ``/dev/disk1s2'' refers to the second partition on
+ /dev/disk1 - remember ``/dev/disk1'' for the next step.
+
+ It's possible that itunes will try to be ``helpful'' and remount your ipod
+ after you modify it with ipodpatcher. If this happens, you need to unmount
+ it again using the above command.
+
+ \item Create a backup of your ipod's firmware partition
+
+ Type the following command, replacing "[device]" with the number (for
+ Windows users) or the device name (Mac OS X and Unix users) assigned to
+ your ipod that you found in the previous step:
+ \begin{code}
+ ipodpatcher [device] -r bootpartition.bin (Windows)
+ \end{code}
+
+ or
+
+ \begin{code}
+ ./ipodpatcher [device] -r bootpartition.bin (Mac OS X/Unix)
+ \end{code}
+
+ This should create a file in the current folder called bootpartition.bin
+ (approximately 40MB for the iPod 3G, 4G and Color/Photo, 80MB for the Nano
+ 1st gen and 30GB Video, and 112MB for the 60GB Video) containing a copy of
+ the ``firmware partition'' from your iPod.
+
+ If it ever becomes necessary (i.e. your ipod refuses to start), you can
+ restore this backup to your ipod using the command ipodpatcher [device] -w
+ bootpartition.bin (Windows) or ./ipodpatcher [device] -w bootpartition.bin
