Right now im having some horrifying experiences with my iPod 4g (iOS 4.2) and ubuntu maverick (technically Linux Mint 10, but we all know this is maverick-based). THE THING JUST WONT WORK!!!!!!!!
When i plug it in, it shows me a dialogue that basically says "this is an audio device, what would you like to do?" and lists several of my media management apps. I tried all of them, and the only one that gets somewhat towards accomplishing absolutely nothing is Rhythmbox , which properly mounts the iPod, but upon doing anything with said iPod, it immediately unmounts. So my question is this: will jailbreaking it help me at least add my music natively through linux, no problemo? No virtual windows crap, just my beloved ubuntu laptop.
And if it will, i dont know the first clue about doing a jailbreak. I have access to windows machines, so if the jailbreaking process requires one, no problem there. Could you also guide me/point me to a guide that will help me with the process?
If for some reason you find my question incomplete/confusing/lacking details, PLEASE dont just skip over to the next forum question, ask me for whatever details you need, ill be glad to give them. I JUST WANT MY STUPID iPOD TO WORK WITHOUT NEEDING WINDOWS!!!!!!
Thanks in advance!
