I just want to get a running version out as soon as possible so people with different use case than me can help check and uncover any hidden bugs.

Thanks very much.



Just one request from me as I cannot move files onto the Rockbox player using ADB with my Mac. Would it be possible to include a small number of additional Themes for the While Playing Screen as was included in the final rockbox release for the DX50

 



Did you do the factory reset from the settings menu in Mango? When updating FW the /data and /cache partitions become dirty and this affects adb. That's why I put it in the install instructions in the first page.

Also make sure that you have the API Level 19 package in your SDK.

ADB is enabled in the RB FW. It's active also active in Mango provided your USB setting is set to "charge only".

Anyway I plan to include a few themes most people used in DX50 and all the fonts in future releases.

To be frank, I was relating to my experience with the DX50 when my Mac would never see the DX50, so I gave up. It seems it may be easier with the Dx90. Having said that it seems like you will be including all that I might need in future releases, so thank you again.

BTW - for those who aren't sure about installing Rockbox, I would say do it, like with the Dx50, rockbox on the Dx90 improves the sound.

Oh I thought you are trying now.

As soon as I get my DX50 back I will do a side by side comparison with DX90. A rockbox shootout.

Theme Installation How-To

  • Download any Theme you like from the official Rockbox page as a packed zip:
    http://themes.rockbox.org/index.php?target=cowond2
  • connect your player to the computer and open the internal memory (usual name: DX50). There should be a folder "rockbox", open it
  • open the downloaded theme zip file. In the zip file there is a folder named ".rockbox" (yes, with a dot)
  • Open the ".rockbox" folder in your theme-zip and extract all the content to your "rockbox" folder on your player
  • you're done, now you can select your new theme in Settings -> Theme Settings -> Browse Theme Files

I don't encounter the cracking sound yet when switching tracks. Whay sorts of file type (e.g mp3, flac) and format (24 or 16 bit) you have?

 

I only have 16-bit - 44/48 khz files. (mostly downsampled from a 24 bit remastered copy) and all in ALAC.

By FW button I meant the physical button. But the same thing happens to me when selecting tracks from the touch screen.

I have almost exclusively CD-quality FLACs, nothing extraordinary. Noticed it on some mp3s too. It seems to happen randomly, playing the same track again usually does not make it repeat itself:(

Did you do a factory reset after you flashed the rockbox firmware? If not I suggest you do so it clears the /data and /cache partition.

I've been trying to repicate the scenarion you describe and I don't hear any cracking issues. Not even once.

Maybe somebody else who has tried rockbox on DX90 could verify this as well.

Yes, I followed the instructions and did the factory reset in Mango. I did it with the memory card pulled off from the player - I guess that does not matter?

 

Let's just wait if someone can confirm it. In the meantime, I will to play with Rockbox settings to see if there's something that makes this problem disappear.

Looks easy, as long as you know how! My IMac couldn't see the DX50 but maybe that will change with the Dx90. Will try over the weekend.

Did you rule out your micro sd card?
Try a different card or load few tracks to internal memory.

The latest build is now available. This has the fix for the prev button. Slightly modified the default cabbie2 theme.

 

Rockbox_DX90_0_0_3.zip

 

Enjoy.

This is all such amazing news. Can't wait to get home tonight and try it!

My thanks to the porting team for your efforts.

I have one issue to report - sometimes when changing a track via FW button or by picking new one from the list, the first few seconds of playback are messed up - I can hear repeated cracking sound in the recording. Other times it works just fine. Perhaps Rockbox does some database updating at the beginning of playback that consumes too much CPU time or something like that? Is someone else experiencing this?


I was listening to rockbox last night,same sdcard I used with my rockboxed dx50 and also got a crackling or grainy kind of noise which i never experienced on files which i played on my dx50 and also the stock firmware.. I only heard it about 5 times so far,and it varies from the start of a track to showing up anytime during a track..You can hear the crackling for maybe about 4-5 seconds..
