I'm trying to remove the volume restriction on my EU iPod by replacing it with the US firmware. Could one of you lovely non-european people send me your US firmware binary please? All you have to do is: Connect your iPod to your Mac OS X machine.* Before you do this RESET it.* As you see the APPLE hold down PREV and NEXT.* This will force it into Disk Mode!!!! You must become root to change the partition map of your iPod, open the Terminal and type: Code: % sudo -s Lists attached disks: Code: root# df Terminal output which lists your iPod: Code: /dev/diskxs3************** 9714320* 9666416*** 47904*** 99%*** /Volumes/<name_of_your_ipod> (We will use x instead of the number of the disk, disk0 is normally your internal harddisk.) US-iPod-Owners: Please, use these commands to share the firmware without capped volume: Code: dd if=/dev/diskxs2 of=~/<name of outputfile> gzip <name of outputfile> Thanks anyone!
