I’ve been looking at iPodLinux for awhile now wanting to put it on my 4g iPod, unfortunately iPodLinux does not officially support the 4g’s yet and from looking at previous posts on the iPodLinux forums they will not offer help if can’t figure out how to install it from their directions on their web-site; which were a little too vague for me. Somebody put together exactly the type of directions I was looking for which made it easy, actually almost too easy to install it on my iPod. Thanks to exDev for the great directions!
Its pretty cool to have linux on my iPod, the iPodLinux team did a great job on this software- but it’s not near finished. Music plays in ultra slow-motion, there seems to be some bugs with the contrast and click wheel settings on startup. Luckily, you can easily switch from iPodLinux and Apples software. iPodLinux has great games however, much better that Apples brick and solitaire, and the file browser is very cool. If you have an iPod i’d highly recommend trying iPodLinux out!
