A step-by-step guide on how to dual-boot Rockbox on your iPod to play Doom and dozens of other games. It's something really easy to do, but a lot of people still get amazed when they see me playing doom on my iPod, and get confused with the instructions available at the rockbox webpage.
So, this will guide you through every little step needed to install and run Doom on your iPod.
I'm using a 30gig 5.5gen iPod, but this will work on any iPod that can run Rockbox.
That is, if you have a shuffle (duh), 2nd/3rd gen Nano, Classic or Touch, you're out of luck.
This is my first instructable, so any comments and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
If you use a Mac, this will only work on iPods formatted with the FAT32 filesystem. You can reformat your iPod (losing all your songs) and resync later on your Mac (a FAT32 iPod can still be used on Mac). More about that here: conversion to FAT32
- Check the Option that says "Enable Disk Use"
This will make your iPod appear as a removable hard drive on your computer, and give you access to it. Note that now you will have to unmount it manually after each sync. To do that, just click on the eject button on iTunes, and you'll be able to safely remove it.
