Hi

Its possible on ipods if the proprietory code is broken to allow 3rd party applications, similar to the iPhone being "jailbroken" although wouldnt recomend it a come update time, the update on Apple hardwae may fail due.

Rockbox is an alternative operatingsystem/firmware for digital audio players, not just iPods. Has been around for a long time, and is very popular among certain DAP owners. I don't use it... don't need it

I use it on my Sansa since Ubuntu by default saves as .ogg and the Sansa interface does not play those type files.

Rockbox will.
