Rockbox for iBasso DX50 dual boot with stock firmware - Page 39

post #571 of 1976

Me too mate,I never used rockbox until it became available on the dx50 and now i really like it...would be amazing if we could have it on dx90 too :)..

Does rockboxing get rid of the crazy volume problems?

Never had the problem before. No reports yet from those who have installed rockbox. I say that issue does not exist on RB.

That's correct in theory but when the DX50's various FWs can sound different from each other......

That's is exactly what you are avoiding with RB. Changing SQ with each FW updates.

That's not because Rockbox makes DX50 sound better. It's because the various versions of Mango make it sound worse.

I would just say that Rockbox has mature CODECs. That has been an endless mess with the DX50 firmware. So yes, Rockbox makes the DX50 hardware sound as it should.

Now that the DX90 has been released (just a few hours ago), I'm curious as to how long it will take for someone to get around to putting RockBox on it... popcorn.gif

If you bought more than one DX90, sending one to xzcc's direction will definitely help start work soon :tongue_smile:

How easy and safe is it to Rockbox this device? Doing it on my Clip+ was a breeze, but i've rooted and flashed several Android devices and i never felt the procedure was really all that safe, and things never did go quite as smoothly as i had hoped (though everything worked in the end). The possibility of bricking a device like this makes me queasy.

Rockbox on DX50 is working very well and flashing it on them is relatively simple and a breeze too. smily_headphones1.gif The first post have got the necessary instructions for it.

Sorry for the dumb question, but can you install this using a Mac?  I dl'd the first item, but the recovery item site is in Russian and I'm not sure what I'm getting.  

 

Thanks

Yup done in all in Mac OSX (Mavericks)

Thanks- second dumb question.  The directions are a bit unclear to me.  Am I correct in that I need to install the Russian zip as a whole into iBasso as per a firmware update, then the Rockbox zip after that?  It makes a comment about installing an Update ISO as usual.  Could someone give this to me in simple terms (I'm a simple guy).  I can handle all kinds of things if they are clear, or once I know what is expected, but first times  can be tricky.

 

Thanks.

1. Take the update.img out from the Russian zip, system update in Mango
2. Go to recovery (boot with power+vol up)
3. Install rockbox zip
