Anyone knows how i can bypass the boot menu with the snow background and go straight to rockbox,on start up?

 

Also, any unicode fonts available?

 

 

 

Thanks

 

Use scroll wheel clockwise on initial bootmenu (The one with snow) until you see a little set of tools. a boot config menu is in there and you can set initial boot to rockbox. Power down then back up and it boots to rockbox quick. (mine takes about 5 seconds or less)

  • filesystem events: Add a new event to trigger on file access
  • Fundamentally rewrite some aspects of the audio DSP
  • EQ 10 bands

 

Hi, is this build with the volume cap patch or not? Is there some simple way, how can i remove that volume cap on every potential future build myself?

Btw thanks for your excellent work, previous 2 builds are 100% stable for last 3 months for me...

RockBox is meant to have the 6db maximum volume. it was simply missing from the Classic build.

 

In addition, anything over 0db is into potential distortion territory. This is why the volume turns red on most themes.

 

If you aren't getting enough volume below 0db, buy an amp.

Your certainly right, but im listening to some quite old sets or unique vinyl rips, where volume >6db is very usable. My cans are senn hd25sp, they need more volume too... Im fully satisfied with my ipod without volume cap when I occasionally need to go higher than 4db, so no need for "extra device"...

I had rockbox installed successfully and it was working great initially. Problem is that after the initial install, everytime i plugged the ipod into my computer, i would get a popup saying that a new device installed and it would attempt to locate drivers which was unsuccessful and it would go unrecognized to my computer. I opened task manager and under processes the ipodmobile device keeps poppin up and i manually disable it but when i plug the ipod in again it pops up again. Do you guys uninstall itunes after rockbox is installed on your ipods?Needless to say it got so frustrating that i reinstalled the old ipod firmware. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I still have iTunes and the computer recognizes my iPod fine. The funny thing is that iTunes pops up as if it's recognizing it too, but it doesn't show any iPod on the list. :p

Maybe a stupid suggestion you've already tried: have you tried using another USB port?

post #712 of 3101

that happens sometimes. The best way is just to unistall your itunes. Actually your itunes has nothing to do with the whole procedure (before or after) So make sure you delete itunes. There is also a driver of the device which you can update when you plug in the ipod if the computer ask you to locate the driver again. Please PM if you need it (No promise it would work 100% though)

I have nothing to argue with in your reply. I just wanted to be sure it is understood that the 6db volume cap is the norm and that there is a reason why it is usually desirable.

Not possible in emCORE (boot menu), but Rockbox's fonts can be changed. There's a Font Pack link here: http://www.rockbox.org/download/byhand.cgi

Yes i tried using another USB port and the same thing happens. If i open itunes it does not recognize my ipod on the list either. Thanks

I was trying to avoid this as i still use itunes for my Nano as well as a older classic that has a lot of early itunes protected aac(before i knew any better) that i use in the car.Would it matter if ipod was/is in "allow disk mode" prior to rockbox? I would appreciate that update driver for a future date if i decide to try again. Thanks

There is a setting in iTunes that determines if it opens when an iPod is connected. However, your device must be connected to iTunes and recognized to access that setting.

New build. Includes:

  • New sync with RB repository. It includes an updated version of the patch "Fundamentally rewrite much of the audio DSP"
  • 10 band EQ (updated to fit this new revision).
  • filesystem events: Add a new event to trigger on file access (updated to fit this new revision).
  • Add identify() call to reset procedures
  • Vcore from 1.050V to 1.000V @ 54MHz.
  • Enabled battery estimate time. This was based on a reportedly estimate of ~24 hours 

 

So far, it is working great. I can even hear a little improvement on SQ. As a plus, the rather audible initial hiss is gone :)

Thanks for this. I didn't get to try the last build from a few days ago. It is is interesting though that compared with two builds ago, this no longer goes into charging mode (flashing 'lightning' in the battery icon in some themes) but rather shows the 'charged plug' in the battery icon. However it is still charging and the percentage display is much more accurate during the charging process than before.

You could try testing on another computer first before doing anything unnecessary. If it works on another computer, then the problem might not be with your iPod and rockbox. If all else fails, restore to apple firmware with itunes and re-rockbox it. While you're there, you could also try to use aroldan's build a few posts up. :)
