Rockbox for iBasso DX50 dual boot with stock firmware - Page 85

post #1261 of 1975

I've been using Rockbox on the DX50 for a while now and really love it, i agree it sounds better than the stock and Sound unlocked firmwares. 

 

In the sound setting menu i've tweaked the Bass +8, Treble +12, Channel Config Custom with Stereo Width @ 145 % - I love the sound!  Not yet touched the Parametric EQ at all as it looks pretty complicated but i think i might have a play with it soon!

 

My Favorite Theme is Redux - i think it looks awesome on the DX50

 

http://themes.rockbox.org/index.php?themeid=2162&target=cowond2

 

Also not sure if you've figured it out yet but after applying the theme turn on the 3x3 touch grid for your own sanity (General Settings >> Display >> Touch Screen Settings >> Touchscreen Mode).  I find the normal touchscreen controls in Rockbox are a nightmare!

 

After setting 3x3 grid mode imagine the screen split in 3 rows of 3 squares, here's how it works :)  Enjoy!

Couldn't agree more, much more usable on a 320x240 screen.

 

It also means you can turn off line padding for much more readable lists (General Settings > Display > Touchscreen Settings > Line Padding in Lists > Off).

I use the Redux theme as well, but only in the WPS. The bars on the outside take up way too much space imo.

 

Also I want to use 3x3 mode but the mode switches back to "exact" mode whenever i go into the Files menu. is this normal or regular for the Android port of Rockbox?

3x3 grid only works on the WPS screen. Not on the other screen like Files.

This should not happen. 3x3 grid mode is meant to be set permanently in any rockbox build. What version of the unofficial DX50 do you use and what theme? Did you try a reboot after changing settings?

3x3 mode seems to work throughout the UI for me - no problems while browsing files etc..

perhaps it depends on the themes used.

It wasn't working for me before, but it is now! I'm pretty sure you have to reset it after you change it. I'm using the AAfreak theme.

Remember that you can customize the WPS and the themes, or even create your own! It's kind of complicated and fiddly, but definitely possible. 

 

And personally I can't stand using the 3x3 grid thing. To each their own, eh?

Sorry for the late reply. You were right, after rebooting the settings took place in the Files menu as well. I kept rebooting after setting the touchscreen mode back to exact since i didn't think a reboot would really change anything. :redface:

Hi all,

 

I've got a little issue with mine, after downloading some more files I went to the database but my unit wont initialise.

It says 0 files found,

I've tried to re-install rockbox but to no avail.

Is there anything else I should try?

Thanks

GC

Hello @GC1971,

I don't know if you have solved the problem in the meantime by reading some pages back but here are two screenshots how to set up the rockbox database to scan the internal drive and the external sd:

  1. go to Settings / General Settings /  Database

  2. Select directories to scan


     

  3. make sure that "/mnt/external_sd" and "/mnt/sdcard" have a triangle icon by repeated pressing play when the folder line is selected (no other lines should have a triangle). This means that it will scan the folder recursively (if I'm not wrong)

 

Regards,

cholero

By the way a great new developer, ArgelErx, started to optimize the DX50 port (while I've been lazy lately). This is what I use of his work until now:

  • charging detection (not only power supply plugged detection)
  • USB Mode setting to switch between ADB and mass_storage while system is running (I'm so happy with this :-)  )
  • for the new dualboot bootloader he made the graphics when USB is connected

 

And he is working on more code cleanup and optimizations...

 

At the moment I'm not doing a new build because I'm still waiting to get my patch commited. After that we will have rockbox installed on the internal storage and very easy to do an update with any file explorer. But maybe I have to change the location for the rockbox installation to get the patch commited. So if I would release a new version at the moment, it could cause a lot of confusion because this version would maybe not be compatible with future releases. So please be patient if you are waiting for a new version.

What is ADB?
post #1275 of 1975
Android debug bridge.
This is a command line tool for android devices.
It is very popular but mainly used by developers.
