You mean, replacing an older Rockbox version with a newer one? Yeah, just overwrite the old one, easy as pie.

Thanks Achmedisdead for the fast reply. Appreciate that and will do the update as suggested.

No,Dfkt i meant a brand new one,with the stock firmware;i did not received yet,next week i will,but i am already planning in doing it so and pairing with the Pav2v.

 

Btw from the manual,installing Rockbox for the first time,manually,say that you just need to extract the whole .zip folder onto the clip zip folder,so i am assuming there is not subfolders i`ll need to search when installing for the first time.

sorry for the newbness!

Salute

Yeah, you just extract directly onto the root of the Zip, not in any folder. Here's everything you need, the bootloader and the firmware, and the installation instructions - http://anythingbutipod.com/forum/showpost.php?p=581958&postcount=1

 

Boa sorte! :)

Hi guys, can someone guide me thru the process of updating the firmware for my Zip.
Have tried numerous time with the Sandisk Installer but my Zip was not updated.
There's only once out of the many times I tried that prompt me that successfully updated but my Zip is still not updated. Any help or guide will be greatly appreciated. Also, may I know the file name of the Zip root directory. Thanks in advance.

Download the firmware from their forums (quick Google search should bring it up easily). Simply place the firmware file on the root of the Zip and once you unplug it, it will start updating. 

 

The root directory doesn't have a file name. It's exactly what it's name says, the root. When you view files on your clip, it will be the first thing you see. Place the firmware file in there (not any folders) and you're good to go.

Hi thanks. Do you mean manual install? I only see folders when I open and view file from the Zip but don't think I see root. Sorry, I'm a noob with these kind of stuff and really had a hard time trying to figure it out. Would be be kind enough to maybe PM a simple step by step guide and a shot screen of the page for me to drop the file. Also, do I need to unzip the downloaded firmware file b4 dropping the file to the directory? Many thanks to you.

Hi Aaron1006, ignore the earlier post. Thanks for the guidance, I've managed to update the firmware base on your instruction. Cheers

So I'm going to buy this from ebay, as that's the only place I can get it from that ships to Russia. The only thing I'm worried for are fakes. Are there a lot of them on ebay? EDIT: Also checked on their site but I only see 4GB as the internal memory capacity. So what's the maximum they have?

I don't think anyone would fake such an inexpensive item - not much money to be made with it (contrary to fake headphones which cost $0.01 to manufacture and sell for whatever an "IE8" goes for).

 

Maximum internal capacity is 8GB, but since you can put a 32GB SD card in it, it shouldn't matter much.

post #178 of 392

Well there's logic in that. Too much of fakes floating around these days, just want to make sure LOL. Other than the immediately different colour screen, what's different/new on the Zip compared to the Clip+ ? Sorry if this has been mentioned before in pages back.

Redesigned graphical user interface, album art on playback screen, no track time/elapsed time on playback screen (for music, at least)...I'd recommend reading Marvin the Martian's excellent review for more in-depth details about the device and its differences from the Clip+.

 

post #180 of 392

Thanks for the link. If anything, this should be a great replacement for my lost Clip+ (RIP).


Do they auto-pause the music if I take out my earphones? I find it useful that my phone has that (didn't noticed it before LOL).
