- \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
- (Mac OS X/Unix).
-
- \item Install the bootloader.
-
- Windows users should now type:
- \begin{code}
- ipodpatcher [device] -a
- \opt{ipodvideo}{bootloader-video.ipod}
- \opt{ipodnano}{bootloader-nano.ipod}
- \opt{ipodmini}{bootloader-mini1g.ipod
