Ipod classic - rockbox - its happening. - Page 56

post #826 of 3110

i was using version 505 for about 3 wks then had serious errors...couldn't transfer files, files not copying correctly, keeps hanging my computer. Deleting all files didn't help sp i had to go to boot menu and choose clear partition and all rockbox files to wipe it clean and then re-installed a new rockbox version. I wonder if any one else had the same problem?

I had issues too...not quite as as serious, but annoying nonetheless. I am reverting to Castor Munoz's build today actually...he put it together when I was helping him test some of the LCD and L-R patches he built a while ago. Feel free to use (at your own risk of course):

I've just read thru 56 pages of this and it's really impressive!  I want to thank everyone for your thoroughness, step by step instructions and following up with patches, much, much appreciated.  I have the 6th gen 160gb fatty and just found out the gf has the 5th gen 30gb ipod video she's no longer using (uses nano and iphone) so I will be using that one as a testmule.  Keep up get great work and love this community!

 

Edit: I had just seen a 120519 build, did anyone get a chance to try that?

I just checked back and it's no longer there, I wonder why it was pulled..  I did get a chance to download it earlier but I guess I wont be trying that one incase it was unstable..

I know what you mean. The latest build that I was using took too long to boot and scrolling my files would lock up until it was well finished. However, I do like Aroldan's 48c248dM-120408+10bandeq build which was problem free and quite elegant. I just returned to it. Suddenly everything is snappy again! Very nice indeed.

Yes, when RB rewrote the DSP engine, things went strange. I'm working on a bunch of different builds with several patch combinations so we can have an updated, stable Rockbox.

Look forward to it. Thanks for the ongoing effort.

 

For now, the build above really does work well. I used it for a long time before and I am happy to be back to it.

Same here...thanks for all the builds Aroldan! I think I might switch to the one Cooperpwc mentioned as well. I seem to recall getting better battery life out of it (and it doesn't hurt that I found it lurking in my downloads folder yesterday whilst poking about in there).

You can always have a complete list of my builds here:

I personally recommend this: rockbox-ipod6g-ef75583M-120423+10bandeq.zip. I got about 24 hours of battery and it's super stable.

But I don't think that it goes into Charge Mode. It just trickle charges.  It was otherwise very good.

Thanks Aroldan :). I have that page bookmarked at home actually :)...

This is my favourite build too. Really stable

Is that 539aaefM-120522 a new build? happy_face1.gif

I also had to switch back to earlier version (april) because my 6th 160 gb started to act crazy: on some computer it took a while to be recognised, long startup times and some freezes - strange is that at first run builds were excellent.

I would like to know if someone find out a trick to change superfloppy to a normal fat partition - so it would be possible to thin models to run hard disk with bad sectors - it's not my case (thick one, multiplatter) but on some friends Ipod's I had to return to original firmware and make a partition in good sectors, leaving the bad empty (first 10 on a 120gb and first 25 on a 160 gb)

Please could you tell me how you do the partition? I'm trying to do but always fails

Thanks

First: you have sad face or simply it doesn't load songs? With sad face you have to use hard stuff like mhdd and and remove hdd from Ipod. In the other case, problably you have redundancy errors when you try to transfer files, than it's easier. Download hddscan and easeus disc master, both freeware. Reload Apple firmware if you have Rockbox on it (itunes>update) do a scan with hddscan (option:read) - take a look where bad sector are - on the ipods I fixed it was something around 10 %. Then you partition with disc master and leave the first part of disc empty, unpartitioned, I simply substracted 15 % of disk size (added 5% to be sure that head won't even be near bad ones). Disconnect, under settings restart device (factory) and you see the partition size) Ipod. Keep in mind that from now on updating or changing firmware will format your hdd, partition included so you have to do it again.

You'll be able to restore most of single platter drives (all thin model) and really few, if none, multiplatter, depending where bad sectors are. For multiplatter or lba0 damages you can try mhdd, be prepared: command line under dos and yo'll have to study how your hdd works but you will be able to kill bad sectors and resize disc - a hard way but with better reults
