Rockbox for iBasso DX50 dual boot with stock firmware - Page 55

post #811 of 1976
Yes, and?

Let me rephrase my question: why do you think your DX50 behaves any differently from every other DX50 out there?

When the device is not used for several hours, this is the way for me to turn on the device. Within an hour after use (and turned off),  turning on the device again by pusing the on-button for approx. 2 seconds (as normally should be done) boots the device without problems.


I never faced such behaviour, i have it set to idle power off, and when i switch it on it works normally.

One thing to check, may be you dont have idle power off set and when it remains idle for long time it hangs or something like that.

For me it power off when its idle for 5 min i think and it works normally, if you have power off when idle on may be try to minimize the idle time and try..

i did set the idle power off, 10 minutes i believe. I will reduce this and give it a go.

I don't know if my device behaves differently from other dx50. I searched the thread and others but found no similarities, and it only has this behaviour when using RB.

AW: iBasso DX50 + Rockbox finally here (Latest Update: 2014-03-25)

I just love it and having no issues with TB on the DX50.... almost...

 

When i turn the DX50 on most of the times i see a faint glow of the screen, but nog real startup. I then have to push and hold the on/off button for about 8 seconds, I hear some clicking and after that the unit comes to live. This happens almost everytime when the DX50 isn't used for several hours. When i turn the unit of and right on again, then there's no problem. On mango no problem either, even after several hours.

 

What could this be?


Sounds strange. This happens after pressing the rockbox logo in the dual boot selection screen?
You can try to reflash the Rockbox zip (settings are not lost). It could be that it is related to the dualboot mechanism. Or you can flash my rockbox only .zip if you are planning to use rockbox only :-D maybe it won't happen again.

It happens when i push the top left side hardware button to turn the device on. When eventually in the dual boot screen, then there's no problem.

 

Ok.. today i found out that when turning on the device where the screen stays black, it actually gives the possibility to choose between mango or rb by pressing the forward button or tapping the corresponding spot on the screen. When choosing rb i can hear the music playing.

If i turn of the player and restart it, screen goes on normally.

If i choose mango in the case the screen stays black and turn it off and later turn it on after being on off for several hours, the i have no problem with the screen at all.

 

go figure...

hello,

I would be very happy for any feedback for optimizations, bugfixing or other suggetions if anyone is willing to try my theme in beta state:

 

http://www.sendspace.com/file/fyn1kd

 

  

 

touchscreen areas in the top bar:

top left - quickscreen

top center - menu

top right - context menu

 

in wps only, white screen area:

tap to toggle infoscreen

long press upper region for file browse

long press lower region for playlist

 

info: The color of the progressbar indicates the songlength, the bar on menu screen the battery level

 

my todo list:

- own b&w icons based on tango

- better battery display

- time display for RTC targets

- finding a good name for the theme

- maybe: a recording screen and a Radio screen

post #817 of 1976

can you please put the volume at 50% or 0% by default? man it feels like I'm going to be permanently deaf when I tried to reset the setting.

 

and sorry for asking this, it must have been asked numerous of times, but will rockbox support the USB DAC function the iBasso released the driver? I like for rockbox sound, it's flat and clean compared to official firmware. thankyou!

I think you are confused between total power off state and an "idle" screen off state of DX50.

 

The latter when music isn't playing and screen is off, the player is not actually off. It just sit there and sipping as little power until you play a music of push the power button once and you see the screen turns on instantly. This is much like the sleep mode on laptops.

 

The former is when the player does not consume power at all which is the actual "power off" state. In this case you have to push and hold the power button for at least 2-3 seconds before you release it so it turns back on. This is where you hear a "click" in which the relay kicks in to prevent quick surge of high current/power which on other DAPs sounds like a loud "pop" when you have a headphone on and connected to HO .

 

All DX50 behaves the same way. It does the same thing for mine.

How are you turning off the device? It sounds like you're not actually powering it off. You need to press and hold the top left button for 3-5 seconds and it powers off. If you have music playing you'll hear it fade out. Press and hold the button for about 1-2 seconds again to power it back on. If you have it set to resume playback it'll pick up right where you left off, or you can configure it to "rewind" a few seconds before where you left off. A proper power up sequence after the 1-2 second press is: about a second or 2 of black screen, followed by a few seconds of an iBasso welcome screen, and then a small pop of sound - the DAC powering on, then the mango/RB selection screen.

This is what i do and experience except my screen stays black. Actually i can start rb from the selection screen as well, but driving blind.

When i power off i don't hold the top left that long but still hearing and seeing the device powering off. I will try pushing the button longer and see what happens.

 

Thanks people for responding.

Hi, 

 

Please excuse my ignorance but I'm a bit out of my depth with firmware etc. 

I am trying to use Rockbox with my newly purchased ibasso DX50 but not having any joy.

 

I have literally done the following (below) but am seeing nothing that suggests Rockbox is installed/working after 3) reboot and enjoy

  •  
  • current version (2014-03-25)
  • get at mega or sendspace
  • CWM-based installer (thanks to DOC2008 and androtab.info)
  • install
  • 1) you need to install CWM recovery. Get standard firmware with CWM recovery here: yandex disk -> install update.img as usual
  • 2) reboot into CWM recovery (power on holding vol+) and install rockbox zip from internal or external SD
  • 3) reboot and enjoy

 

I have copied the CWM update.img to the root of DX50 but it is probably from step 2 that I am failing especially the bit that says " install rockbox zip from internal or external SD". No doubt I am making rookie errors all over the place but if somebody could provide a dummies guide I would greatly appreciate it.

 

Thanks

1. put the update.img and cwm_rockbox_2013-03-25.zip to root of dx50 (better put the zip in external sd too)

2. update firmware

3. turn off dx50

4. hold vol+ and press power, release both at the same time

5. install the zip file

6. reboot (better boot from rockbox here)

post #823 of 1976

Thanks for that reply much appreciated, but still no joy. I'm afraid this really will need an idiots guide to get this to work for me!!! haha

 

When you say "update firmware" do you mean perform a system update from the advanced menu, this is what I did - if not I'm not sure what you mean, sorry.

 

When you say "install the zip file", is that the "install zip from sdcard" option from the menu of "CWM - based Recovery" - if not I'm not sure what you mean, sorry.

 

Lastly "reboot from rockbox" - I'm not sure I know how to do that, if I ever get that far!!

 

Thanks for patience and understanding.

post #824 of 1976

Got it to work, was clicking too hard at"install zip from sdcard" part and was efffectively just doing a normal reboot. Now installed ok - thanks for input

post #825 of 1976

The only problem I have is I cannot work out how to navigate to the SD card I have inserted to the DX50 when using Rockbox, I can only see the music that is held  on the main player  itself.

This was not a problem before I installed Rockbox and is not a problem when I revert back to native lol.

Any help appreciated
