-g, --fwguid=HEXVAL
Enforce iPod serial/firewire-guid. Late 2007 iPod models (3gen Nano, Classic, Touch) refuse to work unless the iTunesDB has been signed with a sha1 hash. This hash helps to detect corrupted databases, prevents sharing an iTunesDB between multiple iPods and locks out non-apple software. GNUpod is able to create the required hash value if it knows the iPods serial number, this is a 16 chars long hex value such as: '000ba3100310abcf' and should be autodetected on GNU/Linux (via /proc/bus/usb/devices) and Solaris (via prtconf -v). Use this switch to set the serial if the autodetection somehow fails to find the correct serial number of your iPod. You can also specify the value in your configuration file (gnupodrc) as 'mktunes.fwguid = 000ba3100310abcf'.
