Ipod classic - rockbox - its happening. - Page 177

post #2641 of 3182

@Bob122577:

 

Concerning stability: use the tested&supported EmCORE r859 (Run UMSBoot from EmCore menu, connect to pc, copy the .ubi file to the 64MB drive, safely eject) in combination with a new daily build (just copy the .rockbox folder to your drive). To me, the behaviour you describe (data abort etc.) seems to come from too much undervolt in that custom build. Inconsistent performance of the database will probably fixed by this as well.

 

USB mode is difficult because of hardware encryption (if I'm correct), the workaround for now is to hold any key (MENU for example) while connecting the charger to keep playing music while charging the battery.

 

 

Edit: after a year of silence, now theseven seems to be working on EmCore, it seems with a focus on USB performance. Interesting! dt880smile.png

Yes, interesting normal_smile%20.gif

 

Question, though: the freemyipod page only lists newer builds, none of which passed the emcore-installer test. Is there an archive of the previous builds (r866, r867, r868)?

 

Cheers.

Wait wait wait so once this starts working we'll be able to transport full digital through USB??

I believe you can simply adjust the number in the link:

Gapless playback? Not sure tongue_smile.gif

Which Emcore and Rockbox version are you running? How many songs are on your Classic? Maybe 'load to RAM' in the settings works.

Ah, excellent. Thanks smily_headphones1.gif   I didn't think to see if http://builds.freemyipod.org/emcore-installer/target/ipodclassic/ is viewable. Worth a bookmark.

@r100 - The 120gb classic has no reallocs or pending sectors, but was somehow not able to select accept terms in emcore, and the 160gb hard drive is failing as mentioned

Thank you I will try the new emcore! I'm a bit confused though, aren't the daily builds kind of like beta software? How are they more stable?

 

I'm aware of the hold button to cancel usb mode thing, but is there absolutely no way around it? From what it seems like in those threads the RB team won't implement it because they say it will confuse people. For me, it would be perfect to either have the opposite (hold button to go into USB mode) or be able to select a setting in the menu. I know I'm not the only one. Is this an iPod specific problem?

Hi, I rockboxed my Ipod classic gen 160gb yesterday as instructed in Page 1.

Everything is fine but I found a trouble with Next and Previous button's behavior.

I click Next or Previous button to skip to another song but instead of that, my ipod just do

Fast Forward and Rewind for 2 seconds per click. I knew that Fast Forward and Rewind should be

done if you press and hold the Next/ Previous buttons only.

I read the manual of rockbox but nothing helps. Pls let me know if it is normal or not? Thank you!

I'm using the Rockboxed iPod without any significant issues, but I'm using the recommended builds from the freemyipod website.

 

Should I try the svn builds from the emCore/rockbox sites? Any significant changes or benefits of doing so?

post #2653 of 3182

The daily builds of Rockbox are usually no harm, but with enCore you should probably stick with the older versions. I haven't seen a .ubi file since r871 or so

Ok, thanks.

 

The version I have is r859. I guess most of the performance improvements are in Rockbox...so I'll try out the latest release then.

This one exists on the site now:  emcore-installer-ipodclassic-r880.ubi
 
 
Haven't had a chance to install yet, though. Anyway, just sayin'. Certainly safer to stick with r859 (though I've no problems with r868).
