First you want to make sure that you have your Ipod plugged in to your computer. Other wise you will not get anywhere and the program will not open either. Once it is started up it will load all of your songs. After it is done loading the songs you have there are a couple options that you can select from the drop down menu. You can select from the different playlists that that you have created on your ipod and select songs from there or you can just leave it on the all songs selection. Now you can select the songs to be copied by selecting them one by one or you can right click and choose select all if you just want to get all of the songs from your Ipod.
Now that you have all of the songs selected that you would like to copy to your computer you can now select where you would like the songs to be copied to on your computer. To do this you will need to click on the Output Options tab toward the top of the window. From here you can just browse to the directory that you would like to copy to. I have just set mine to a music folder on my desktop but you can copy them to where ever you choose. You can also change how the folders will be laid out in the directory that you choose by changing the File Output Format. I have just left mine on the default option because that is just the way that I like my folders to be sorted but you can choose to change yours as you choose. You can also select the Unattended transfer so then you will not have to monitor the whole process of your songs being copied.
Now to copy the songs to your computer all you will have to do is go back to the Ipod tab and then just click on the Start Copy button. Now all you will have to do is just wait for all of the songs to be copied and then you can transfer them to your Itunes or what ever other music player that you have installed. Now you will not have to worry about loosing all of the songs on your ipod and not being able to get them back onto your computer without spending hours.

First off you will need to go and download the themes that you would like to install on your ipod and you can get them from here: http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/WpsGallery. Then select you version of ipod from the list and search though the ones submitted until you find the one that you like and download the .zip file. After you have downloaded the theme you want you will now have to navigate to it and extract it. Now you will need to navigate to where your ipod is mounted and just drag the .rockbox folder into the .rockbox folder on your ipod it should then copy all of the files into all the places they are supposed to be. You can also do this manually if you would like by just opening up the .rockbox folder with you theme in it and just copy the files inside of the folders into the same folders on your ipod in the .rockbox folder but the above way seem more practical though. Now you have your theme installed onto your ipod. You are now going to have to apply the theme to be able to accually see it on you ipod. To do this you will need to eject your ipod from your computer and boot into Rockbox.
