I found that out. Thanks :)

Can anybody explain ins. step by step as I am a dummy smily_headphones1.gif

Thanks

update: I have advanced to a point where I see the many optioned RB recovery boot screen. But this time, the player is frozen there. Tried that 2 times, frozen still as soon as I boot up recovery (pwr + vol up)
Maybe your problem... Not sure if others are all the same but to navigate through the options in RB recovery I have use the tip of my headphone plug tapped against the top outlet to cycle through them. The up/down with volume buttons does not work. Early owners of DX50s would have known this as that was how we used std recovery in the very early FW editions but new owners are probably not aware. Not sure if its been relayed in any of the detailed instructions so far.

So if you're stuck at the main recovery screen, do this to choose the line with the task you need.

EDIT: oh the hold switch works too. Didn't know that.

I had to unzip it on my IPad and rename it to a name without the . at the beginning and then I coped the files from the three folders into the respective folders in the CWM file and then it wouldn't instal.

I will retry this evening

It seems that when I unzip or zip the folder I change something that the installation program doesn't like and it aborts the operation. To test that theory I unzipped the CWM zip archive and then zipped it up again without any changes and it aborted installation.

I am using an IMac - maybe I need to try a different Zip utility tool.

yup, it definitely is. no major bugs to report and most users are long time adopters of RB so there's nothing new to really post about.

I am actually not that happy with RB in dx50. Why, rb on clip+ and ipod video proved really worthy and useful. The only benefit of RB on dx50 is the superiority of EQing choice imo. Even its mere treble bass settings do its job perfectly. But other than that?

Gapless, it actually works on RB.

Playlist

Crossfade

Crossfeed

fade in, fade out playback (a lot useful than you might think)

Replaygain

 

Not to mention you don't need to worry about the next FW upgrade it it's going to impact SQ.

 

if you are still not happy with the above, I don't think any other little features will.

that's the beauty of dual boot. Not happy with rockbox? you can choose to stick to the stock firmware. Ever since rockbox was ported for the dx50 I havent had a reason to go back to stock. you might find otherwise...

Because I suppose IBasso is already good in it's own rights that's why rockbox is just an added advantage or a compliment to it. Probably rockbox does a lot changes and improve the SQ of players like Clip significantly but as for DX50, the SQ gets a subtle lift IMO. Still something interesting to the DX50! smily_headphones1.gif

I actually like the previous option of Power + Volume down to choose between stock and RB. In the current boot menu I accidentally choose mango or accidentally press the << button. I have no more use going back to stock FW except for occasional comparison.

I was regarding dx50 wonderful in terms of advantages even before RB. :) And what RB had added are 

Playlist

Crossfade

Crossfeed

fade in, fade out playback (a lot useful than you might think)

Replaygain

 

Might look like many but when you don't care about their presence and focus on the sound, music solely one will reach my conclusion :) there is a good reason why I added imo in my sentence :)

Rockbox does none of this. It's completely transparent.
