I've had an iPod for half a year now. It came with OS 5.0.1 - the one that isn't working with Ubuntu right now. Nothing, (not Banshee, not Clementine, nothing), will transfer music to it.
OS 4 works for music transfer, apparently, but I don't fancy hacking the iPod to revert back to an older OS.
I also have a Windows virtual machine, but I would prefer to be able to use a native Ubuntu music application, rather than run Windows and download iTunes (it's just a nasty silver monster).
And I also have DONUT on the iPod (a free music player from the Apple app store) and I can drag music to the device for DONUT to play, but I would prefer to use the normal iPod player.
So I have lots of ways to get music on to the device, but I would prefer to drag and drop, or sync with Clementine.
I was wondering if anyone had heard of any progress in cracking Apples new database checksum shenanigans? Is this on the horizon, or still a few months away?
