After some good cleaning in my room, I found back my Ipod classic 80GB. I thought it had been stolen or I had dropped it more than 3 years back but I hadn't.
Off-course the battery was dead-flat, so while I let it charge I was curious if there would finally be a Rockbox port for the classic and there was!
Once it was charged sufficiently to boot (for the first time in 3.5 years! I found out when I checked the dates for the last modified files) I immediately flashed EmCore
Finally a usable Rockbox DAP after so many years of living without :)
(I still have an Iriver H320 but it died, that's why I bought the classic)
First runtime with build 20120926 of the official Rockbox site was over 29 hours with still 30% left, I'm going to try aroldam's build next
I'm impressed by the SQ, from what I can remember the original FW used to sound very average and 'lifeless'. Maybe it's because of the absence of the volume limiter (EU model), with Rockbox it has so much more power, it is able to drive my AKG-K601 (120 ohm) up to decent levels.
Uninstalled all the Apple-Stuff from my PC now too. Can't hurt I think. But I ran into another problem. I was using the Failsave-Theme since I put a fresh install of rockbox on my Classic. Now that I wanted to use some other I noticed that the WPS (While playing screen) wouldn't be themed like the rest was. Someone may know a fix for this? I've been using the themes of the iPod Video, since I read they "will just work" ™ Only the font and backgroundcolor seem to change, but that was it. Just text on a flat ground. Where do we find new themes for the classic anyways? There are none on the rockbox homepage since it isn't officially supported.
Have you tried rebooting yet? Some themes/WPS'es won't fully load until you do.
To find all theme's on Rockbox.org that will work on the classic use http://themes.rockbox.org/index.php?allthemes and order by screen resolution, the ones with 320x240 pixels should work.
