Before you ask a question!

  • Check our FAQ and Troubleshooting pages.
  • If your question is about something Unsupported, ask whoever made the tutorial.
  • Search for at least 10 minutes before bringing a question to our team. The more questions we have to answer, the less time we have to work on support for other iPods.

How to ask for help on IRC

If you join the IRC channel, don't just say "can anyone help me?" or "my ipod is broken. help!". There are many people constantly scanning the messages, but do not want to get involved unless they can answer a specific question.

So, after perhaps a short introduction of yourself, state your problem.

When you have one of those "I have installed iPodLinux and now something does not work any more", then give us these details upfront:

  • How did you install, i.e. did you follow a tutorial or use an installer? If so, tell us which one you used. If it's an installer, tell us which version it has or what date it was created or where you downloaded it from (tell us the URL!)
  • If you used the installer, tell us which non-default options you chose in it.
  • If changing the loader caused the problem, tell us how you did that. Did you use the Installer for it, or did you do it manually?
