Today I got my iPod Mini. gktpod doesn't like HFS formatted partitions, so I decided to fix that, following a guide I found online.
The guide was accurate; gtkpod now works fine. Unfortunately, where they had their iPod as /dev/sda, I had mine as /dev/sdb, /dev/sda being my 200 GB external harddrive.

Guess which one I restored the 34 MB firmware to with dd?

One e2fsck later and some fun with find and find in lost+found, I managed to restore pretty much everything. I haven't looked carefully, but if there's anything missing, I haven't noticed it.

My biggest mistake was probably not rezeroing the first 34 MB, which meant that there were quite a few really weird files there along with the good ones.

On a more uplifting note, I managed to pick up a copy of Anansi Boys.
