Rockbox for iBasso DX50 dual boot with stock firmware - Page 2

post #16 of 1976

Well,

 

I have installed the RockBox firmware, its very nice and god i love its equalizer,

 

i updated the database (had problems updating it, but then i went to Database in settings and chose the folders to synch, then it worked ok) but anyway i dont use database, i use file explorer and its working ok.

 

created playlists ..  OK

 

the touch screen is working in absolute point mode by default where you can access anything by directly pressing on it.

 

it can be changed to grid mode from the settings which i think divide screen to 3 parts horizontally  (up/ok/down) and didn't like it.

 

on the now playing screen :

top left corner goes to main menu while song is playing /

top right corner goes to current song in file explorer while song is playing /

bottom left corner goes to repeat and shuffle options while song is playing /

bottom right corner i think goes to the current playlist while song is playing /

middle pause and play / left previous song / right next song.

 

so far so good ..

 

need to shutdown from the menu as power button doesn't shutdown.

 

the only question that is driving me bananas , are they both built on the same sound library, meaning with EQ off, rockbox gives same sound as 1.2.8 ??

 

because i keep switching between them and sometimes i feel they are the same, and sometimes i feel 1.2.8 is a bit more airy, and i really need to get this out of my head, so that i can enjoy the rockbox software :D

 

also is the touchscreen actions, theme related ? meaning different themes need to be adjusted for touch ?

 

Sorry for making it long..

When Google eased the uSD requirements they chose to use a chunk of eMMC as the /sdcard file system to maintain backwards compatibility with older applications.

Removable cards are usually mounted as /mnt/ext_sdcard or something similar. DX50 uses the /mnt/ext_sdcard mount point.

yeap you are right! not an android dev apart from just one time with some qtC++ sso I mixed it.

The lock button do not lock the touchscreen. It still responds to gesture while lock switch is on.

Rockbox uses its own set of decoding and processing libraries. Any overlap between Rockbox's libraries and Mango's libraries is coincidental.
As I noted in the main thread, Rockbox is transparent unless you explicitly configure it to be something other than transparent.

can't wait for the official release
post #22 of 1976

Update:

- fix: apply saved volume level on startup

- enable left/right balance

- change usb mode -> adb + mass_storage in both players

 

https://bitbucket.org/isergachev/rockbox/wiki/Home

 

 

Who do you think is official enough to make an 'official release'? :)

with the above bug fix i think its getting very close. Maybe just the backlight on/off fix and it can be RC1. lol

LOL agreed !

I guess in my opinion this counts official to me, specially that there is no serious bugs, i have been using it for one day and its totally usable, mostly all features working, even the battery performance seems solid to me.

I think this is the timing to try it and point out any bugs since our friend here is doing pretty good work.

I reduced the line padding to 16px under the touch screen settings, now the view and scrolling is much more better.

Cheers !!

Rockbox works. It is not a finalized firmware, but it is quite stable. Interesting that rock sounds more involving on Rockbox that on stock firmware.

still wait for backlight on/off fix =)

Just loaded the latest updaste. I notice the menus settings/menus are a bit re-arranged? Also on the main screen, the "shutdown" button is erroneously renamed to "Recursively"

Thanks again for the update, I assume the lock button will be part of the "better keymap" on the TODO list?
