Installation

To get iDoom installed on your iPod is a very simple process. All you need to have is an iPod that has podzilla2 or podzilla legacy running on it with orange boot text and a computer (Mac, PC, Linux doesn't matter). Download iDoom (http://www.acc.umu.se/~hyarion/highbw/iDoom1_3.zip)

  1. Unzip the downloaded file.
  2. Get the folder iDoom with the files in it and copy or move them to anywhere on your iPod that you can get to in the File Browser of podzilla.
  3. Disconnect your iPod and boot into Linux.
  4. Go to the File Browser and select "mnt" and find the iDoom folder.
  5. Once you're in the iDoom Folder just select the file iDoom, a text will run past and you will be able to play Doom.
