    Quoting Rockbox manual. I think it's worth the effort reading the manual especially for those who are new to Rockbox. Click the link below to download it.

    RB is playing well for me, good sound and the dual boot is really nice [​IMG]
    I have an issue with the USB, I don't see the storage, internal and SD, in Linux (Fedora and latest Ubuntu) I'm getting a "was not an MTP device" error message, with windows 7 an error messages about driver installation failure and no storage also, I have to boot on the iBasso player in order to copy my albums, I'm missing a setting in RB ? (I have done a factory reset after the installation)
    Thanks again for all the efforts and dedicated time to improve the DX90. [​IMG]

    adb mode is enabled by default instead of mass storage. That is why the USB host (PC) don't see DX90 as a USB storage device under Rockbox. It's similar when you boot Mango and set the USB setting to "charge only" I feel this setup gets the best of both worlds. You get adb and at the same time mass storage (via Mango). Also you can transfer files to the external SD using a separate SD card drive/reader.

    You won't ever see Rockbox on the M. It can't take advantage of the graphical real estate. M:use is beautiful but it still needs Folder Browsing and the code still has to be a bit leaner and cleaner.
    Rockbox is perfect for the DX50 and so it should be just as wonderful on the DX90.

    I still find myself flitting back and forth between mango and rock box. I think it will honestly depend which cans I am using as silly as that sounds.

    Loving the Rockbox port so far, and really appreciate all the work that's gone in to make it work on the DX90!  [​IMG]
    Just had a question about how to get external playlists working -- I can't get the M3U playlists that I've thrown on there to load the songs.  I think the problem is with how I am addressing the files.  Right now I have all the music on the microSD card, and I'm putting the playlists on there as well.  I have tried using both absolute and relative paths, but I can't seem to get either to work.  Does anyone have a sample for how to input the file paths?  Is there something special about the file system?

    It's relative from where the m3u is to your music.
    First you create the m3u on your computer with your favourite program and save it.
    Next you open the m3u in an appropriate text editor to replace the absolute path with a relative path from the intended m3u path to the music.
    Original absolute path
    Relative path if the m3u and the folder "Carpenters-Ultimate_Collection" are on the root of the sd card
    After you replace it for all songs in your m3u, put the m3u at the root of the sd card.

    Working now, thanks!

    Mac does not display folders/files that start with a period ('.'). 
    You can use one of this method to show/hide hidden files - http://www.macosxtips.co.uk/index_files/quickly-show-hidden-files.php
    or, use Filezilla.

    Is there a tutorial for adding additional fonts?  Something straightforward like Cholero's tutorial for adding themes? 
  14. mathi8vadhanan
    Just download the font pack and un-zip. Move the 'fonts' folder from '.rockbox' in your desktop to 'Rockbox' folder in DX90's internal memory.

    I don't see it noted in the thread, but I'm seeing a large discrepancy between the battery indicator in Mango and Rockbox.  Mango thinks I'm almost out of battery.  Rockbox thinks I'm 98% full.  ???
    BTW, naranjada theme is pretty nice.  Tried arc-en-ciel and redux themes, but they won't display my album art for some reason...
