Welcome to the iPod-Linux Installer project hosted by sourceforge. The goal of this project is to create an easy to use GUI program that enables Mac OS X user with iPods to install linux on HFS+ formatted iPods while still allowing users to keep and use the Apple Supplied OS. Currently this project supports 1G, 2G, and 3G iPods. 4G, Mini, and Photo iPods are now supported. Installation on Nano and 5G iPods is possible with this installer but no support will be given for these iPods! Make absolutely sure you back your files up if you are using a post 3G iPod as this is an alpha installer release.
This installer would not be made possible without the hard work from the devs at ipodlinux.org check them out!

A big thanks goes out to all donators of this project and the iPod-Linux Project! Your support helps these projects continue.
