Hi-  Thanks.  No problem installing the .img.  However, after it restarted and I did the Factory Reset, I'm at a loss.  

 

Never mind, I got it.  Just took a bit more poking around and realizing I had to add the zip via external micro card.

hey guys 

 

just about to install rockbox on my dx50 again,

when you install the rockbox zip file do you have to install the whole folder as is

or do you extract first or use the rockbox folder within the zip folder .

there are 3 folders in the zip file , system , data and something else 

not sure what to do because i installed it already once before and was has having trouble

finding my music, 

i could find the music on the sd card but not the enternal memory .

on my ipod classic (rockboxed) all my music was under files

but that is not the case on the dx50.

 

regards.....

Just copy complete .zip file on internal memory and in the recovery program select that .zip file.

thanks for your help..

do you personally think that rockbox is better than the stock firmware 

on the dx50?. IE more neutral .

Yes, truely neutral. The stock FW sounds warmer to me compared to RB.
post #593 of 1976

just finished the install of rb not enough time to make a comparison

but from what i can tell it does indeed sound more neutral than the stock firmware.

i spoke to ibasso asking them when the next firmware was out for release and they 

replied" there is a lot of new changes to the new firmware which is why its taking so long.

i wonder if the new firmware will be on par with rockbox? we shall soon see hey.

 

i hope they can make the necessary changes to there software so people can enjoy

the neutral sound that everyone is striving for in this community .

 

rockbox is very neutral and very natural sounding to me .

i will do a follow up review of my comparisons very soon ...

 

good job people .......
