White Screen of Death and Graphics Problems - Solution

i've received a iPod Nano 1g today.

the device had a huge problem - the screen was distorted when i switched to another menu entry and when i woke it up from sleep mode the wsod was there.

since updating,resoring and resetting led to nothing i installed rockbox on the nano.

and that was it - the nano works great - no more wsod, no graphic distortions or anything else.

so i can only recommend this modification to save the 1st gen. nano from the recycle bin!
