I am trying to run floola for my 3rd generation iPod nano. floola is asking for my “iPod fwid”.
I tried to search the forums for this, but keywords have to be 5 characters or more.
Hi Why don’t you try the following link, it should help! good luck, I’m having the same problem…trying to fix it too.
That link looks like it will help for Windows users, but I’m in Ubuntu Linux.
How to get the FWID is documented in the docs:
How do I get the fwid?
fwid is a 16 characters long string needed on new iPod models
Connect your iPod
From the apple menu (top left of screen) select About this Mac and click More Info
(optional) Select Mini Profile in the View menubar
In the left column select Hardware and then USB
In the USB Device Tree you should see your iPod listed, select it
the FWID is the Serial Number listed in the lower box
Under Windows FWID should be retrieved automatically.
Otherwise (XP or newer only):
Open the Control panel and got to Device manager
Find your iPod in the list of devices (probably under hard drives) and double click it
Go to Details tab and select Device Instance ID in the drop down box
The FWID is the 16 digit number near the end of the string shown
Linux Connect your iPod
In terminal type sudo lsusb -v | grep -i Serial
Look for your iPod device, the FWID should be the 16 character long string shown.
I input $sudo lsusb -v | grep -i Serial
Here is the output:
Sub PreferencesWindow.PreferencesWindow.Save( PreferencesWindow.PreferencesWindow )
Sub PreferencesWindow.PreferencesWindow.BtnSave_Action( PreferencesWindow.PreferencesWindow )
Sub isiPodConnectedTimer.Event_Action ()
One this error, floola immediately crashes.
you’ve put this sudo stuff in the fwid input box?
you should write this in a console/terminal of linux
or did you do everything right and got this crash on saving your fwid?
No, sorry. I got this:
phil@Phil-VAIO:~$ sudo lsusb -v | grep -i Serial
[sudo] password for phil:
iSerial 3 000A27001B1C1B41
iSerial 1 0000:00:1d.7
iSerial 1 0000:00:1d.3
iSerial 1 0000:00:1d.2
iSerial 1 0000:00:1d.1
iSerial 1 0000:00:1d.0
So I took the first number as the fwid, “000A27001B1C1B41″.
Then I open Floola which cannot autodetect my iPod generation. So I tell it that it is a 3rd generation Nano (the new video Nano), and I input the above as the fwid. Floola thinks it’s OK at first, so I click OK to save, but I get a Floola error. That’s all the output I reported earlier.
If interested we could try to remote debug this problem. Let me know.
I’m interested, but I don’t know if I could help very much. I’m just a user. I can follow directions (usually).
