Here’s the latest developments in porting Linux to the iPod project (only works with old 5GB, 10GB and 20GB iPods).
The CVS (Concurrent Versions System) version of the port has been updated to 2.4.24 which isn’t too exciting but does add HFS+ support. Firewire is still not working on 3rd gen iPods but we’re still looking.
SBP2 support (the protocol for external Firewire disks) is getting better and hopefully will be working soon. Some work on GUI development is also underway.
