I'm not sure why you're worried about awkwardness when you're willing to carry an amp with a Sansa Clip, but you could always get a right-angle plug.

If any one of you have similar set up, mind to post a couple of photos here?

 

thanks

Anyone else run into this wierd problem??

 

Everytime I charged or transfer files into my rockboxed clip+ the firmware goes back to sansa firmware. It's getting pretty annoying. Anyone has similiar problems?? What can I do to keep the rockbox firmware when charing or transfering files?

Yeah, mine does it too after a drag and drop.  Just turn it off.  When it comes back on, it's rockboxed again.

You'll have to wait for the devs to finish finalizing the USB support. wink_face.gif

This is not a "weird problem" per se.....it's a known status.http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/SansaAMS

Just got my Clip+ 8 GB and was thinking about rockboxing it. Could rockboxing it mess up my Clip+ in any way? Will I be able to switch back to Sansa's default setup if I don't like rockbox?

1. Not that that they know of.

2. Yup. Though if you're at all nervous about doing this sort of thing, maybe you shouldn't.

I'm just a little nervous because I'm new to the Clip+ and had never heard of RockBox until I checked out these forums. Anyway, thanks for the help.

Rockboxing your clip shouldn't damage it in any way. The danger of "bricking" a player is present mostly during the developmental stages. Now that rockbox is stable, I can all but guarantee you that nothing will happen.

 

As for switching back to the stock firmware, yes you can still use it. With RB installed, it is the default firmware that you boot with. To load the stock firmware all you need to do is hold down "left" on the pad while turning it on. That will load stock firmware. If you end up not liking RB, you'll be stuck having to hold down "left" to load the original firmware, but it is certainly usable. Though once you get used to rockbox, there really isn't any going back. wink.gif

Especially with the Clip+ and Fuze....they are so much better with it, I never use the OF anymore, unless I am testing something to answer a question in a forum.

Thanks guys. I'm going to tryout RockBox later tonight.

post #522 of 913

I think the RockBox installer works correctly with it now, so installing and uninstalling is actually a breeze.  :)

It got me addicted to tetris (rockblox) again :).

I'm loading tunes on mine now, can't wait to test the SQ on it.

To me, it sounds just like the V2 Fuze, which I'm sure you remember.wink_face.gif
