    I have 1.5 firmware and I have moonshell 2.02. It works perfectly. And as far as i know, if you have moonshell and play an mp3 file, it goes into the ipod mode.

    im using moonshell 2.05 stable and have had no problems with it. as far as i know (havent tested) the "ipod" player was removed in v1.5 as it was a plugin and they removed the plugin system as it was old and badly written (or something like that) dpg's play fine with moonshell.

    You need to boot the moonshl2_directboot.nds, then select the .dpg file or .mp3 file using moonshells file browser. Trying to boot the .dpg or .mp3 file directly with AKAIO wont work because AKAIO wont show it.

    Sigh....you didn't read the readme file?
    It tells you what to do -.-

    But since I'm taking the time to write this anyway, I won't be an ass, and say put the moonshl2, and directboot.nds files and the moonshl2 folder on the root of the flash drive. Run the non directboot one first, as I don't think you get a language selection screen if you run directboot without running the regular file at least once.
