If the rockbox.ipod file isn't the right one for your IPOD it will just reset and return to the menu.
the version i have restarts back to the main menu when it has ran... but all works ok this end... just waiting on the payloads to be added as my drive is broken :(

If so, that's exactly what it should be doing, that's the psgrooved rockbox, if you connect it to a PC while in that mode, you'll find it won't show up as a hard drive like it usually would with rockbox, because the USB Controller is being utilised for psgroove/hub device/HID instead of mass storage.

I followed everything above on my ipod photo, I hook it up to my PS3 and do as it says to and it *seems* to work
it goes to the rockbox menu, my ps3 now has to folders under the *game* option.
however, I don't know what to do next? (sorry >_<)
one folder *instal packages...* is empty
and when I select the other folder *PS3_...*
it tells me an error occurred on startup
how do I get backup manger on there?
and thanks so much for the guide! it's nice to have someone take the time and explain it
Hey i got this installed on my ps3 however i cant get FTP server or backup manager to work,
It installs but when i click it to use all i get is a black screen.
Whats going on?
Im using the ipod mini 1g with the updated rockbox.ipod
Can someone help please
You need to DOWNLOAD backup manager (V1 only) it's 'around' here somewhere - it's a pkg file. Stick it on a thumb drive, put it in the PS3 after it's booted with exploit then click on install packages - and selected manager.pkg

aha! thanks so much!

I'm having a bit of an issue. I've tried installing this thing a few times, once without the IPL and once with. Without it, nothing was happening. I tried about 10 times to boot the PS3, hit the eject button right after and etc. I figured it was working right since I read that Windows would not recognize my iPod while it was in this state. Anyway, no dice. Reformatted the device and installed again. Second time I installed IPL, but PSGroove and .rockbox do not show up in the boot menu... I've followed the instructions to a T and I'm using a 5th Gen 30GB Video iPod. Does anyone have any suggestions that I could try? Been hurting my brain for a few hours now trying to figure it out.
Yay thanks! Borrowed my brothers ipod video 5G.. Works like a charm!
