Yeah, I tried setting up Rockbox on my friend's iPod when it died. I figured hey, why not? But I couldn't get it working. Might have had the wrong version for her iPod (iPod's aren't exactly well marked as far as the version you have). Still, until they get it easier to use Rockbox will never be very popular. And it also doesn't change the issues with non-replaceable batteries, lack of Off button, etc.
