As a mac user, i'm glad folder is not default .rockbox, i don't have to type 'open /Volumes/DX90/.rockbox' to open it now, but wouldn't it cause lot of problems with documentation, wiki, hardcoded paths, etc?

the rockbox folder stil exist and all data still stored there and works the same as before. The files in apps are what use to be in the firmware which are not accessible before. You don't need to touch it just like before.
 
Any interaction should still be done in the rockbox folder.
 
It's not the last version btw :) 
 
I must have miss the latest link. Anyway, same as before you can drop it into the rockbox folder. :)
 
 
 
The only change will be the update process. Instead of flashing the full firmware you only need to overwrite the apps folder with the latest version. Hence, the reason I put it in separate folder.
 
The benefits of this change as I see it are the following
 
1. Updates can be applied quickly. You don't need to flash the firmware every time a rockbox update is available.
 
2. You don't lose data on both Mango and Rockbox every time you apply the latest update.
 
3. The rockbox zip folder is considerably smaller which is much quicker to download.
 
 
If you have any other ideas, you are pretty much welcome to share

@Cholero and I have been discussing about the folder location. I am a Mac user and for Unix/Linux as well. So I know how painful it is looking for hidden files or folders in finder.
 
I don't think it's going to cause any issues with the paths or documentation. Like I said the stuff that you save personally like database and settings still goes to the rockbox folder.

Are you referring to the stock iBasso firmware or the patched one? Ibasso's firmware has not been updated since July.

thank you for your answer.  It was a patch and i did not get that.  Thank you, now i understand.  It is to make it easier down the road to upgrade rockbox.

no problem. iBasso's main site seems to have issues lately and I thought you are asking about the official FW.

Congrats for the new file structure, having the app on the sdcard. This is the way that makes sense and the way I want to change the build mechanism on the official rockbox page. So everyone can just download the newest zip and extract it to the internal drive (once he has the firmware patched). This is the future.

@headwhacker I have a problem with the new version - it won't turn on (hangs on DX90 white logo screen) when hold button is off. Works ok, while the switch is on.

Does it hang when you previously booted rockbox after selecting it from the boot menu? Does it boot fine after you boot Mango?

I may have uploaded an earlier build of the patched FW.

Could you download The patched FW again and just flash the update.img file. Try the one from google drive

That's right, both DX90 and DX50 don't have a real-time clock. So it cannot display time.
