Please refer to Napka's site for the latest build.

    Excellent news!  I wish I could be of some help, but I can't help you with programming.  If you need volunteers for anything else, just say the word.

    Giving rockbox a run now. Building database, navigating through the touch screen works perfectly. However, you need to tinker on the settings to suit your preferences. (e.g. scroll speed, line padding, etc..)

    All the physical buttons work and functions as they should except the prev button. As soon as I get around it, it's good to release :)

    Sweet, Rockbox is on its way to the DX90!

    Cool - many thanks. I really enjoyed rockbox on the Dx50 and I have no reason to suppose it won't improve the listening experience on the DX90 :D

    I would gladly take part in testing out this new port. This is indeed fantastic news!

    Me too! :)

    The prev button looks to be more challenging to resolve than I thought. The key code value is the same as the next/fwd button. Meaning, when activated, both buttons do the same function.

    Does gapless work properly in RB, and is there any clipping off the tracks by half a second or so? This is really interesting, and may very well be the one thing that makes the deal for me.
  13. headwhacker
    Gapless is perfect and absolutely no cuts. One of the reason I use RB on DX50. For some reason iBasso can't do something about those 2 issues. Even with DX90, faulty gapless and 1 second cut can be very annoying when you notice it.

    Have you tried contacting Ilya directly to ask about that issue? There may be a simple solution that he has already seen.

    Perfect, thank you!
