The Official Rockbox for Android Registry - Page 4

post #46 of 129

Hi

  • Huawei IDEOS 8150D
  • Android version 2.2
  • Device rooted
  • My device is properly running RB Ver.r29342 in 240x400.
    Since my display is 240x320 I would like to to ask if it is possible to obtain a release with the proper resolution to fully enjoy RB.

Can anyone confirm whether Rockbox enables gapless playback (either by itself or with single music file + cue sheet support) on devices otherwise lacking it? Very interested in this in regards to the Cowon D3, at the moment.

Any chance for the 240x320 version ?

Here is mine running r29342:

  • device: HTC/Google Nexus one
  • Android version: Gingerbread 2.3.3, not rooted

 

I've mostly just played around with it, as I generally don't use the phone as a DAP. It seems to work alright though, even if the navigation is a bit finicky with the small text on the touchscreen. I found the trackball quite useful here, which makes me wonder how well it would work on a device without trackball. Don't take that too seriously, though - I like my buttons and I'm not convinced by the whole touchscreen-above-all development, so this is not a Rockbox-specific flaw and your mileage may vary.

Gapless works fine with Rockbox on my N1, no other player I've tried has done this so far. I did not test cue sheets, just consecutive files (both mp3 and flac).

Any issues with Cowon D3 firmware updates and Rockbox?

Regarding last.fm support:

 

After reading earlier posts in this thread I decided to go ahead and add this since if you have any Android development experience, this is mind-numbingly simple. It's literally about ten lines of code to get this working. In fact, I may submit this to the rockbox source at some point. I haven't contributed before, so I don't know how hard/easy that would be.

 

Getting this to work for yourself will require a little bit of Android development knowledge (MINIMAL - just building the dang thing, basically). I would host APK's of the current Rockbox build with last.fm support enabled, but I have nowhere to host it :). In addition, it seems that the current source requires you to specify your screen resolution before you build the apk and install it.

 

1) Enable scrobbledroid api in the last.fm app

 

2) Check out a copy of the rockbox source code

 

3) Alter rockbox/android/src/org/rockbox/Helper/RunForegroundManager.java:

 

In method:

 

 

 
public void updateNotification(String title, String artist, String album, String albumart)
 
Add the following at the end of the method body:
 
Intent scrobbleUpdate = new Intent("net.jjc1138.android.scrobbler.action.MUSIC_STATUS");
scrobbleUpdate.putExtra("playing", true);
scrobbleUpdate.putExtra("artist", artist);
scrobbleUpdate.putExtra("track", title);
scrobbleUpdate.putExtra("album", album);
mCurrentService.sendBroadcast(scrobbleUpdate);
 
In method:
 
public void finishNotification()
 
Add the following at the end of the method body:
 
Intent scrobbleUpdate = new Intent("net.jjc1138.android.scrobbler.action.MUSIC_STATUS");
scrobbleUpdate.putExtra("playing", false);
mCurrentService.sendBroadcast(scrobbleUpdate);
 
Et voila, c'est fini. Build rockbox for android according to the instructions in rockbox/android/README. This will cause your tracks to be scrobbled when a track begins, and scrobbling to stop when a track finishes. My testing shows that this will show "now listening," etc on your last.fm page.
 
 
Happy scrobbling :)

Do these include the scrobbling patch I submitted? If not I can do some builds and post up mediafire links too.
 

 

post #57 of 129

No, they only include the Meier v2 crossfeed. (Since I personally don't use Wifi that much on my Archos, I scrobble the oldschool way, with a scrobbler.log and QTScrobbler.)

Sorry for my ignorance and my lack of knowledge in android as a platform (got my desire today as my first android phone). I would very much like to install rockbox (DFKT edition) on my device, how the **** do I do that?

post #60 of 129

Just put the APK file with the correct resolution on your phone/player and start it from the file browser to install it.
