Rockbox for iBasso DX50 dual boot with stock firmware - Page 112

post #1666 of 1975

Hi all.  Long time lurker, but I joined because I am having trouble installing Rockbox in my DX50.  I have extracted the contents of the .rockbox zip directly into the root directory of the DX50 itself, and have tried putting the update file (downloaded from the link on this thread) in both the root of the microSD card and the root of the DX50 to no avail.  It says that it can't find the file/image.

 

The microSD card is exFAT formatted (it is a Delkin 64gb card).  It is the only microSD card I have, and is almost completely filled with music so I don't want to reformat it to FAT32.  I see in the install instructions that the card may have to be FAT32.  Should I get another, small/cheap card to format as a FAT32 to do the install, or is there something else I can do?

 

Thanks!

If you are using recovery to update then the SD has to be formatted with fat32.

Is there a way to do it without using the SD card to update?  Can I do an update from within the default DX50 software?

That's the way I do it. No problem so far. Just put the img file to root of DX50 and update like normal FW

I've compiled the latest git source with modern_ui and user selectable hold switch mode. I've made it by typing in terminal:

 

ANDROID_NDK_PATH=/path_to_android-ndk /path_to_rockbox_source/tools/configure --target=ibassodx50 --type=n && make zip

 

The source compiled and there was a zip file containing the firmware. It was working on the DX50, but some options were missing. For instance no USB mode menu. After plugging in the USB cable there was an error message saying that the rockbox folder is missing but it wasn't. What am I doing wrong?

 

My build environment is Mac OS X 10.8.5 + command line tools + git from homebrew + latest Android NDK

Did you also build the dualbboot app or which patched firmware did you take?
The usb mode settings, you know where they should be? Did you have them with other builds?
post #1674 of 1975

I used FW 1.8.0 with dualboot app. Normally the USB settings are in Settings -> General settings -> System -> USB Mode. There was also no cpufreq governor menu, HAAS Surround, Auditory Fatigue Reduction, DAC Filter Roll-off and many things. Maybe I did something wrong with git? I used these commands:

 

Quote:
git clone git://git.rockbox.org/rockbox

 

cd rockbox

 

git fetch git://git.rockbox.org/rockbox refs/changes/75/1075/13 && git checkout FETCH_HEAD

 

git fetch git://git.rockbox.org/rockbox refs/changes/07/1007/10 && git checkout FETCH_HEAD

 

cd ..

 

Then I renamed rockbox folder to rockbox-git and started building.

sorry, I'm not a gerrit and git specialist. The difference I did was to do cherry-pick instead of checkout

Could you tell me how were you using cherry-pick command?

Last year I installed Rockbox on my DX50 and I couldn't find my music so tried for ages to get it uninstalled. Have just re-installed it and managed to find my music and oh my how great is the sound quality. It is amazing. Don't think I'll be using Mango anymore.

With rockbox you don't have sound sinature depending on the fw release :-), it is purely what our DX50 can deliver
