How to : Extract iPod nano 6G Firmware
Posted by ipodrohan
I’m posting here a tutorial on how to extract the 1.0 Firmware from your iPod Nano 6G which has recently been hacked by James Whelton. Here is the tutorial :
1. Download the current 1.0 Firmware from this link :
2. Next you need to rename the file iPod_1.0_36A00403.ipsw to iPod_1.0_36A00403.zip
3.To unzip this file you will need a utility called Extract2g from here. cd to the same folder as files and build it using the make command in Terminal.
4.Now in that unzipped Pod_1.0_36A00403 folder you will need to have a certain file called Firmware.MSE, drag that into the same folder as your built Extract2g file.
5.Now open the terminal,and while in the same folder, go: ./extract2g -A Firmware.MSE
6.This will now dump the firmware files as shown in the screenshot above.
Hope This Helped. 🙂 Have fun guys and Stay Tuned !!
