No, I haven't! To be honest, I've never even encountered any major problem with aroldan's builds...

I've been using the daily builds without any issues so far. The ipod was meant to be Rockboxed...biggrin.gif

I think I'll drop the latest aroldan build in tonight and give it a whirl...

Rolling tubes, rolling op-amps, and now rolling daily and aroldan builds...wink_face.gif

I'm not exactly sure about the battery life on mine, but I'd guess it's above 24 hours easilly! I haven't charged it for almost 2 weeks, I been listening to it around 1 hour a day and last saturday I was trying a new IEM and had a long listening session of 6 or 7 hours. Last night it still had above 20% of battery left! I only use FLAC files, no EQ (or other effects) and always with external amping without any volume on the HO (not sure if this affects the battery life or not)... cool.gif

I got 32 hours by running the battery_bench plugin, i.e. constant playback (looping over a couple dozen files) without turning on the screen much. Real world usage (with more screen use and more switching/buffering content) would probably show a lower figure (though I'm not sure by how much).

Also, lossyFLAC is going to use slightly less battery than straight up FLAC, because of the 50% smaller filesizes (less HDD activity). Aside from that, FLAC is one of the (if not THE) fastest (battery efficient) decoder on Rockbox.

Well, I used mine last night for another hour (or a bit more), and when I turned it off, the battery was still above 20%... popcorn.gif

Hoping dual-boot might be sorted soon. :P

I recently got the iPod 6.5G 120GB and wanted to rockbox it but after finding out that its not dual-bootable I've gone off the idea slightly.

Do you mean the setting or a new custom battery?  Unless you're installing a new battery I would not change the battery setting.  It will make the runtime remaining estimation inaccurate.

Really? I always wondered about that... That might explain why I get wildly varying readings on my battery levels.

 

So what IS the default setting? I think I may have played around with it to see what it did and might have confused my player of what my battery is capable of.

To be clear, I do not doubt that the new builds charge - but apparently not in proper in charge mode. With a theme that shows the full Rockbox battery icon (like Cabbie Classic), the battery icon should show a flashing lightning bolt during charging and then revert to a (non-flashing) plug when charging is finished. (The battery percentage should then also read 100%). That tells you that the charging protocol is working properly. The new build did not do that on my Classic.

 

120802 rocks. I have not found any flaws whatsoever so I am happy to stick with it.

I was wondering if I was supposed to change to a higher setting, since (maybe) the newer Classics have a higher battery capacity. Guess I'll leave it at default then, many thanks for the headsup.

@cooperpwr

I also noticed the battery icon not changing, but didn't pay too much attention to it.. just as long as the battery was charging I wouldn't mind, hehe. Though, I'll probably revert back to 120802 tomorrow and check it.
