I had some free time, and this is what came out :)
I just finished to create a custom Rockbox bootloader for the iPod Video with a fullscreen logo (you know, the girl holding the iPod), and a custom status bar which I hope will look as good as the rest :)

The girl with the iPod now really holds a Black iPod video, so it's now your turn :)

Ok, this is how it looks, the bootloader splashscreen and the new fullscreen logo:

Download custom Bootloader
You can get the custom rockbox boot loader from
http://pijulius.com/julius/rockbox/ (look for: jbootloader-YYYYMMDD-$yourdevice$.bin)
Note: at the moment it's only available for iPod video (5g) but I hope I will have some time to make one for the iPod Color too.

To install the bootloader please follow the rockbox's instructions found here:

Download custom builds
As usually, the custom build can be downloaded from

The patches which are included in these builds can be downloaded too one by one from:

I would like to thank again to S3TUP for the great girl with the rocbox in her hand, and to Pete for the black iPod 5g suggestion, and to Ivo Burkart for his bootsplashscreen patch which was a great start to make my own.

OOoo and as always, Big Thanks to the Rockbox team, I'm so proud of this software, thanks guys/girls for the great work, and for giving us this possibility of freedom to make any changes anytime :)

That would be all for now, enjoy as always :)
