00:01:36_Dino_The executable has all your names in it now, you vain people!
00:02:07Zagorhehe
00:02:33_Dino_I want them crunched! I want them in some kind of data overlay!
00:03:12_Dino_hmmm, code overlays can we do anything there me wonders...
00:03:15Zagoryeah. you'll save 200 bytes and add 400 bytes worth of code. good idea :-)
00:03:47_Dino_oh well :-)
00:04:08_Dino_I can get you a decruncher in < 400 bytes!
00:04:22_Dino_200 opcodes...
00:04:34Zagor200 opcodes is 400 bytes...
00:04:47_Dino_yeah, I know
00:05:18adi|homelol

00:15:05langhaarrockerelinenbe? awake?
00:17:28langhaarrockerHow do I debug things like I04:IllInstr at 0000200?
00:18:16Zagordebugging is hard without serial cable
00:20:49langhaarrockerFor that I have to connect the tx pin of the cpu somewhere, don't I?
00:22:06hardeepyou can look at the archos.map file to find out what function is at address 0x200
00:22:16hardeepand then put in debug messages
00:23:11hardeepactually, there are no functions at 0x200 are there...
00:23:46langhaarrockerThat's probably why it's illegal? ;)
00:24:15Zagorbingo :-)
00:25:53langhaarrockerThat archos.map file looks scary to someone who doesn't really want to learn something new ...
00:26:03Zagorhehe

00:28:39elinenbeI am here, but I am leaving in 5 min.
00:28:59elinenbelanghaarrocker: it crashes every few songs.
00:29:08langhaarrockerYes. I know.
00:30:16langhaarrockerOr do you mean the same as you wrote to the list? That it stops playing? _That_ bug is fixed. But the real crashes - I have no real clue.
00:30:58langhaarrockerProbably I'm writing somewhere next to the lcd buffer.
00:33:18EnnaN:) sounds zweet :)
00:33:49langhaarrockerThe lcd buffer sounds zweet?
00:33:59Zagorlanghaarrocker: did you ever post the cleaned-up wormlet patch? the one which works with gcc 3.0
00:34:09langhaarrockeryes

00:37:26Zagorlanghaarrocker: you can send it to me directly if you want
00:37:31Zagordcc or mail
00:37:48*Zagor is going through his patch backlog
00:37:55langhaarrockerI prefer mail since I don' t even know what dcc is...
00:38:19Zagorhehe, ok. dcc is direct client connect, an irc feature
00:38:30Zagorsend to bjorn@haxx.se
00:41:30adi|homeZagor i would have thought your saying 'No, Im not accepting that patch'
00:41:34adi|homewould have been good enough
00:41:37adi|homebut apparently not
00:41:39*adi|home sighs
00:41:44Zagoradi|home: which patch?
00:41:59adi|homethe whole wrapping patch
00:42:20adi|home"I still dont see why peopel dont want the cursor to go to the top. So what will the cursor do? I must be missing something."
00:42:22Zagorah, right
00:42:54Zagorevidence of the confusion such behaviour would case
00:44:35hardeepThe archos firmware doesn't go back to the top when wrapping... that's why people may be requesting this
00:44:41Zagorah
00:44:54langhaarrockerZagor: after a short but violent discussion with my outlook I managed to force it send the wormlet diff
00:45:03Zagorhehe
00:45:35langhaarrockerHope it contains only worms and no bugs :)
00:47:10Zagorlanghaarrocker: the start screen doesn't work with fixed fonts
00:47:34Zagorsince that's the default build, it should
00:48:22langhaarrocker?!? It did on my Recorder
00:48:43Zagoraren't you using propfonts?
00:48:59langhaarrockerTried both.
00:49:18langhaarrockerWhen using propfonts the field of worms is a little bit bigger.
00:50:16Zagorthe start screen doesn't show the l/r up/dn and F1 texts completely with fixed fonts
00:50:40Zagoralso, it's *very* confusing with multiple worms. who am I controlling? maybe it should blink a few times first or something.
00:50:40langhaarrockerStrange. I'm investigating.

00:50:56Jet8810what is the status on fat write anyway?
00:51:06ZagorJet8810: in progress
00:51:22Jet8810cool
00:51:38Jet8810After that should be a cinch to sort by artist and albu based upon ID3 right?
00:51:46 Join Dexter [0] (~Dexter@Mix-Pointe-a-Pitre-105-4-17.abo.wanadoo.fr)
00:51:57langhaarrockerZagor: That reminds me that I must have forgotten to send you the manual for wormlet...
00:52:11ZagorJet8810: not really. it will still be very slow extracting id3 info
00:52:20Zagorlanghaarrocker: no, i got it. i just didn't read it :-)
00:52:22Jet8810hmm
00:52:23Jet8810cache?
00:52:29 Part Dexter
00:52:42Jet8810couldnt you keep a cache on the hard drive?
00:52:52ZagorJet8810: the plan is to have a pc program build a database of id3 info. no fat write needed for this.
00:53:02Jet8810hm
00:53:25langhaarrockerZagor: that's what manuals are for: not reading them.
00:53:25langhaarrockerThe problem with blinking worms is: which one should blink when in multiplayer mode?
00:53:26Jet8810after this pc program builds database, how does archos deal with it?
00:53:47Zagorlanghaarrocker: right
00:54:03ZagorJet8810: read, search, display
00:54:27Jet8810great
00:54:36Jet8810can archos handle it in a reasonable amount of time though?
00:54:39Jet8810(say 5-10 seconds?)
00:54:50Zagordepends on the database design. this is not done yet.
00:54:55Jet8810right
00:55:03Jet8810that would be the ULTIMATE feature for archos
00:55:19Jet8810I would probably have to go in to about 3 gigs of mp3s and manually put in id3 info though :(

00:56:38langhaarrockerapropos ultimate feature and filewriting and so on:
00:56:38langhaarrockerHas anybody considered how to split files without having to rewrite mass data? Like copying a sector and relink?
00:57:21Zagorwe have considered, but then looked the other way :-)
00:57:41Zagorthe question is: do you want to risk the file while splitting it?
00:58:11langhaarrockeryes
00:58:23langhaarrocker;)
00:59:44langhaarrockerDo you fear inconsistent FAT because of drowned batteries, hard drive shock or something like that?
00:59:59Zagorexactly
01:00
01:00:21langhaarrockerBut where's the difference to normal writing - eg while recording?
01:01:53Zagorthe difference is you have intact data, then risk it. with recording, you don't have it intact
01:03:01Zagorbut we could try it
01:03:54langhaarrockerDoes that really matter when changing the fat? I mean isn't it possible you accidently corrupt data of old files while failing to write the fat for the newly recorded?
01:11:07langhaarrockerStrange: I recompiled wormlet with fix fonts and now the problems are as you reported.
01:11:41 Nick Jet8810_afk is now known as Jet8810 (~gordo@adsl-34-191-86.bct.bellsouth.net)
01:12:36langhaarrockerArgh! I see the problem: I used lcd_puts which is affected by the scroll bar of the menu!
01:12:58langhaarrockerWhen you turn off the scroll bar everything looks fine.
01:15:38Zagorah. use lcd_setmargin()
01:15:47Zagori'll fix it

06:42:29PsycoXulyes there's something wrong with using the archos in linux.. it locks for no apparent reason sometimes and forces you to reboot to use it again

07:09:51LinusN:-)
07:11:46mecraw12LinusN: has it been decided how to do the queueing of songs while already playing?
07:13:08LinusNwell, i don't know about decided, but i know how i would do it
07:13:10merwinmorning linus
07:13:24LinusNho merwin
07:13:34merwinho ender :P
07:13:41*merwin is an orson scott card fan
07:14:37mecraw12LinusN: does your way include appending to the current list?
07:14:46LinusNno
07:14:55mecraw12:(
07:14:59LinusNnot at the moment
07:15:22*merwin is staying out of this particular arguement
07:15:54LinusNmecraw12: do you mean "permanently" adding to the playlist?
07:16:01LinusNi mean for every repeat
07:16:02mecraw12i'm just thinking down the road when we can write playlists to disk, so we can create them on the fly
07:16:18LinusNof course we will be able to in the future
07:16:47mecraw12phew :)
07:17:28LinusNthis is just like the Archos queue function
07:17:39LinusNexcept it will work :-)
07:17:51mecraw12that would be a plus

07:32:37 Quit merwin ()
08:00
08:09:38LinusNhehe, i just realized that the queue function won't be perfect
08:09:58LinusNhere's why:
08:10:32LinusNthe mpeg thread preloads the next track before the current has ended, to avoid pauses between songs
08:11:01LinusNif a file is added to the queue after that, it won't be played until after the preloaded song
08:11:36LinusNor the user would have to expect a pause to reload the chosen song
08:13:30hardeepthe pause would only occur if you added to the queue in the last few seconds (dependant on bitrate) of the current playing song...
08:13:38LinusNyes
08:13:50 Join Bagder [0] (~daniel@as3-3-2.ras.s.bonet.se)
08:14:09LinusNthe problem is that the mpeg thread doesn't really have a "reload" function
08:14:18LinusNperhaps mpeg_play() will do it...
08:14:19hardeepyeah, it would have to be added
08:14:33hardeeplike a mpeg_flush_preloaded_tracks() or something
08:15:12LinusNwhat would the user dislike the most: the pause or having to wait for the queued track to play?
08:15:25LinusNi guess the uncertainty is worst
08:15:27hardeephaving to wait... :) at least if the user is me =)
08:16:04LinusNwe can't expect the user to understand why the queued track doesn't play when he thought it would do
08:16:45hardeepyeah... this is similar to the open bug when you switch shuffle modes
08:16:59LinusNexactly
08:17:13LinusNthe flush() function would probably solve that too
08:17:22hardeepyep
08:17:35LinusNhardeep: care to implement the flush()?
08:17:55hardeepsure, it shouldn't be that hard
08:18:24LinusNprobably accompanied by a mpeg_num_preloaded_tracks() function?
08:18:43LinusNmaybe not
08:19:13hardeepwe already have that...num_tracks_in_memory()-1
08:19:18LinusNok
08:20:38LinusNwhat would we like to happen when we press Prev?
08:20:53LinusNi suggest that the queue is to be cleared
08:21:46mecraw12it seems to me it should behave like it was actually inserted into the playlist
08:22:30BagderRED
08:22:36LinusNi see it as a function that lets you play tracks "outside" the playlist

08:25:19LinusNmecraw12: show me the code! :-)
08:25:37LinusNseriously, that is way harder
08:25:53mecraw12i know... i'm just expressing my wishes :)
08:26:27mecraw12besides, i don't think you'd want to see my code
08:26:47LinusNi think users would like to be able to do both
08:27:19LinusNadd en extra track to be played once, or add it to the playlist
08:27:37Bagderand what if the playlist is shuffled? ;-]
08:27:51LinusNbut if the user wants to add it to the playlist file too, then they'll have to show me the code
08:27:57mecraw12what about switching the array over to a linked list?
08:28:14Bagderwould take heaps of more memory
08:28:15LinusNmecraw12: sure, but the list size will double
08:28:35LinusNand the scrambling will take longer

08:30:15LinusNnot that long
08:30:58LinusNit might be feasible
08:31:38LinusNbut would the user really want the Queue function to insert the song into the playlist?
08:31:47LinusNi'm not usre
08:31:49LinusNsure
08:32:01mecraw12like you said, they should be able to do either
08:32:07mecraw12so... show me the code!
08:32:33LinusNi think insert-into-playlist is a very different thing than the queue function
08:32:47LinusNand i'm working on the queue now
08:35:56hardeephmmmm, playlist handling needs to be changed slighly in mpeg thread... playlist_next() should only be called when the song starts playing else the playlist index will be wrong after flush
08:36:29LinusNhow does it work now?
08:36:40adi|homewhich makes more sense
08:36:41hardeepit calls it as soon as new song is loaded
08:36:53adi|homeerasing an entire line of text and redrawing it to delete one char
08:36:58adi|homeor just deleting the one char?
08:36:59LinusNhardeep: ouch!
08:37:19LinusNadi|home: i suggest the simpler code

08:40:19LinusNblah, the queue function is quite tricky to implement...
08:41:25rwoodI got dem ol' code police got me blues - i thought the speed improvement was fairly significent
08:41:39LinusNrwood: i agree
08:41:52rwoodLinusN: it will be some time next week or the week after before i get the i2c stuff for the player
08:42:10LinusNrwood: dont worry, i am in no hurry
08:42:32rwoodLinusN: we are moving to a new building this weekend and production is completely packed up
08:42:48merwinrwood: heh... in the speed of things, an extra 5ms doesn't really make too much of a difference in loading rolo
08:42:48LinusNbtw, i got the recorder logs
08:43:10rwooddid the software work ok under NT?

08:44:36merwinI'm just finishing up reinstalling everything
08:44:37merwinyuck
08:44:44rwoodmerwin: 5ms? - on mine it looked more like a second or two
08:44:54adi|homehow expensive is calling lcd_update?
08:45:01merwinrwood: really? it only takes about 1 second in the first place for me
08:45:05LinusNadi|home: takes about 25ms
08:45:20adi|homeso avoid extra calls to it if possible?
08:45:25merwinadi|home: yup
08:45:25LinusNi would
08:45:27adi|homek

09:23:07bobTHCcool... and it's always the classical 6 who win ?
09:23:35Bagderwell, 24 and 23 are closing in
09:23:54LinusNone of the voters didn't want the Archos name on the shirt
09:24:02Bagderwhich makes me hesitate, as they are both very similar
09:24:10LinusNhe called it "unnecessary free advertising"
09:24:18bobTHC;)
09:24:35LinusNbut if we only wrote "Jukebox", which one would we mean?

09:25:23bobTHCAR??OS
09:30:31bobTHCwho try the ozilo patch?
09:32:14Hes24 and 23 are really cool IMO, they're very similar so probably the votes got distributed between them... if only one of them had been there it would have had lots more votes probably.
09:33:05BagderHes: yes, that's kind of my thinking too

10:01:42langhaarrockerWith some designs I see the problem that they cover too much of the t-shirt. When wearing them half of the design will be hidden in the trousers
10:04:52LinusNwe will probably shrink some of them to fit both the shirt and our wallets :-)
10:06:17bobTHCfor the 5 for exemple it's possible to reduce the design size easyly..
10:06:52Bagderwell, we'll sort out a winner first, then we'll see what kind of "tweaks" we'll need to do
10:07:04langhaarrockernew design?

10:17:42LinusNbobTHC: try the latest build
10:18:20langhaarrockerDo you think it would be a good idea to enhance the lcd api with optimized functions to horizontal / vertical lines? The standard line algorithm is a bit overkill for that.
10:18:39bobTHClinus : i'll test it this night...
10:19:02LinusNlanghaarrocker: do it

10:20:23LinusNhardeep: cool! did you have to change much?
10:21:19hardeepLinusN: just the playlist handling in mpeg thread so that playlist_next is called when track changes... everything else was pretty simple. I'll send you a diff so you can look over it

11:00:04langhaarrockerTo use gdb you have to modify the JB, don't you?
11:00:22LinusNyes
11:03:15langhaarrockerfor the recorder you probably have to sacrifice the spdif jack?
11:03:37Hesor the line in
11:03:52Heswhichever you prefer
11:03:53langhaarrockerHas anybody done a switchable modification?
11:04:36LinusNi only know of only two people that have done this mod, I and Zagor
11:04:46LinusNand we haven't made it switchable
11:05:05hardeepoh hey, that reminds me... i tried digital out and it worked fine
11:05:19hardeepi saw a post on one of the message boards saying it didn't work with rockbox
11:06:10Hesit works for me
11:06:41langhaarrockerIs there a spare output port of the cpu? If so I think it should be possible to make a very small pcb board with a 4066 on it to switch between spdif / serial.
11:06:43LinusNyeah, several people have reported success
11:06:47Hesi use at home, playing through the quality DAC on my Edirol UA-5 A/D/A-box
11:07:39LinusNlanghaarrocker: there may be a spare port, but i dont know at the moment
11:08:02LinusNlanghaarrocker: i have searched for the SYNC signal, but it doesn't seem to be connected... :-(
11:09:09langhaarrockerBoohooohooo! No SYNC!
11:09:09langhaarrockerConcerning digital in out: Or do you mean that you can connect spdif / serial simultaniously and they don't interfere to much when only one is operating?
11:12:42LinusNthey will not work simultaneously
11:13:22langhaarrockerLinusN: any more bad news?
11:13:35LinusNi have lots of them :-)
11:13:49langhaarrockerOh. That's bad news.
11:13:54LinusN:-)
11:14:15LinusNi found an interesting "feature" in the MAS3587F
11:14:26LinusNyou know the files without VBR header?
11:14:43langhaarrockerYes, I produced some.
11:14:59LinusNif they are encoded with the MAS3587F, there is timing information embedded in the ancillary data
11:15:06ZagorHes: have you had time to test skipping?
11:15:13langhaarrockerI've read that, too
11:15:15HesNope
11:15:22Hesi've been at home, caught flu in the weekend
11:15:22hardeepyeah, i noticed that... was trying to figure out some way to make use of that info
11:15:26Hesso no driving around 8-(
11:15:27hardeepre: LinusN
11:15:37ZagorHes: ok
11:15:42HesI did install a new build yesterday though
11:16:06hardeepAlso, they say it's a configurable option... I wonder if the archos fw enables it
11:16:47LinusNhardeep: i don't know
11:17:06LinusNbut since they don't produce a TOC, i think they activate it
11:17:23LinusNi'd rather have a TOC
11:17:36hardeepheh, yeah
11:18:19hardeepactually, yeah, they probably enable it... I think ffw/rew works correctly with those files on the archos fw
11:19:20LinusNbut if you edit the files, the timecode will be wrong
11:20:48LinusNi wonder how it is implemented
11:21:07LinusNi mean, you aren't guaranteed to have room for ancillary data in each frame
11:21:52LinusNso the encoder is probably wasting space to guarantee at least 20 bits of ancillary data
11:21:54langhaarrockerI've split archos generated mp3s with mpDirectCut and the time info became weired.
11:22:57langhaarrockerLike telling the file was much longer and it was fun to see the seconds pass on the JB in double time.
11:23:05LinusNlanghaarrocker: can mp3directcut regenerate Xing headers?
11:23:14langhaarrockerprobably not.
11:23:28LinusNnot many programs can, for what i can see
11:24:02langhaarrockerDo you know some?
11:24:18LinusNi think having to read the ancillary data all the time when playing is a waste of time and resources
11:25:02LinusNlanghaarrocker: i have heard of a program called "vbrfix"
11:26:02hardeephmmm, why would they need to read it all the time? isn't the timecode only needed when you're seeking?
11:26:20langhaarrockerIll have a search.
11:26:21langhaarrockerIf it's a complete time stamp I think it's a useful feature for documenting purposes like "During the last practice we had this idea around 19:00. What was it?"
11:27:02LinusNit is relative from the start of the recording
11:27:37LinusNlanghaarrocker: it is a great idea!
11:27:55langhaarrockerWell, we could save some rtc info in the mp3 header.
11:28:13LinusNi think there is a ID3V2 tag that holds the absolute time
11:28:29LinusNwe should definitely create one when recording
11:29:20langhaarrockerCool: a 'goto' function with absolute time!

14:42:36LinusNi wonder how much different the FM recorder is
14:42:53LinusNi guess we would have to support that one... :-(
14:43:50Zagorwell, we don't have to do anything. it it's simple, we'll do it. otherwise, not.
14:46:18langhaarrockerWith the only difference that the person who does it gets NO pudding: He won't have the time to eat any.
14:47:31alkorrfinally they plan to add FM feature
14:48:37LinusNi'm surprised thay haven't done it earlier

14:49:03LinusNit's such an obvious feature (to me)

14:54:29LinusNlanghaarrocker: we started before we knew about the MMJB
14:54:33alkorryes
14:54:42alkorrno i'm speaking about FM recorder
14:55:10langhaarrockerI just feared we might have risen the ARCHOS ENCRYPTION MONSTER.
14:55:16LinusNpossibly
14:55:26Zagorlanghaarrocker: that's very possible
14:55:38LinusNbut it isn't that much of a problem
14:55:38alkorrthey could decide to have a different firmware as recorder and player have different firmwares
14:58:20alkorrmaybe not. I don't think they would do it because the internal rom (not encrypted) need to unscramble the firmware in the external ROM. It would need to change all their SH1 because of the rom content
14:58:41LinusNexactly
14:59:08LinusNand even if they changed it, we could just monitor the memory accesses to see how the decryption is done
14:59:17Zagori think the FM recorder uses the same as the current recorder. but the multimedia may have harded protection.

15:04:39alkorri'm really wondering if they are using a compression
15:04:55alkorrseveral reason to think so :
15:05:25alkorrwhen zipping their firmware, compression is unefficient
15:05:51alkorreach firmware seems to have both sizes
15:06:22alkorrthe size of the file and a bigger size (nearly twice) in their header
15:07:10edxare you talking about the archos multimedia player?
15:07:17LinusNyes
15:07:22alkorrthe difference between two firmware big sizes is nearly twice as big as the filesize too
15:07:30edxanyone of you got one?
15:07:42LinusNnot me
15:08:07langhaarrockerI don't need it either.
15:08:22LinusNhow can one not need a geeky toy?????
15:08:44alkorrgeeky ? what does that mean ?
15:09:00edxhmmm.. what do they cost?
15:09:17alkorrtoo expensive for the moment I suppose
15:09:32alkorrfor what they can bring to us
15:09:47edxwell... :)
15:10:22edx400 Euros... only??!! wow.. i had exspected much more actually...
15:10:23edxcool :D
15:10:51alkorryes but i would buy it if i cannor reverse-engine it :)
15:10:56alkorrNOT
15:11:01alkorrwouldn't
15:11:09edxyup
15:11:09edxhehe :)
15:11:23LinusNalkorr: a catch 22 indeed
15:11:24edxwell those toys have two fun-sides - using and disassembling
15:11:41alkorrthe fact that it uses a ARM7 and a color screen is something i like
15:11:54langhaarrockerDo you all belong to those people who disassemble a toy _before_ trying it?
15:11:57Zagoryes. and what seems like a programmable dsp
15:12:14langhaarrockerCan we do ogg on it?
15:12:18alkorrand a TI DSP too we can program
15:12:21alkorrsurely
15:12:45langhaarrockerOk: I _need_ a MMJB!
15:12:47alkorrso it is why i'm trying to see if we can hack it
15:14:21edxhmm where do you have the firmware from? i cant find it on the archos site
15:14:56alkorrthe picture i found at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/archosmultimedia/files/107-0763_IMG.JPG shows us a TMS320
15:15:19alkorrfrom http://groups.yahoo.com/group/archosmultimedia/files/

15:15:40alkorrtoo
15:16:36edxah ok
15:16:44edxhmm .. was on the wrong way.. :)
15:18:29alkorrhey they use a CPLD
15:18:39alkorri'm wondering for what...
15:21:05langhaarrockerHave you seen the scar on the thumb of http://groups.yahoo.com/group/archosmultimedia/files/107-0764_IMG.JPG
15:21:05langhaarrockerThat reminds me of my thumb half a year after I poked a hot soldering iron into it...
15:21:18edxhmm alkorr, you have been talking about compression of the firmware...
15:22:44alkorrTMS320DSC21, there are several PDF about it : ARM7+TI DSP -> http://www.ti.com/sc/docs/news/2000/00104.htm
15:23:35alkorrso there is no reason we cannot have a OGG on it too
15:23:47alkorredx, yes
15:23:50edxwhat have you found about the compression?
15:23:50alkorri'm not sure
15:23:56edxyou were talking about two sizes?
15:24:08alkorryes they have a header of 16 bytes
15:24:16alkorrthe first word is a signature ZAZA
15:24:24edxyes that was about what i was going to throw into the conversation :)
15:24:38edxand after that a little less than the actual file size.. or something, right?
15:24:54alkorrthe second word looks a size around 520 Kbytes
15:25:15alkorrthe third is exactly the file size minus 16 bytes comming from the header
15:25:22edxyup
15:25:27alkorrand the fourth probably a CRC
15:25:57edxaha
15:26:11alkorrfile sizes are approximatively 280 KBytes
15:26:16edxso then the second word might be the unpacked filesize?
15:26:38edxdo you have any other firmware version?
15:26:48alkorrperhaps because it is always twice as large as the filesize
15:26:55alkorrthree versions
15:27:03edxoh cool
15:27:13edxcan you still d/l older versions on the site?

15:49:38LinusNeven if cryptanalysis is fun, i'd rather work on rockbox a little bit more...
15:50:05edxtrue.
15:52:07alkorredx: the fact we cannot see any text indicates us that they used a compression and/or encryption schema.

16:44:55alkorrwhen i compute the sum of bytes in the file except the first 16 bytes, i always get a sum equals to the fourth word
16:45:43Bagder:-)
16:47:09alkorrso we know about 3 of the four word in header. I'm still unsure about the purpose of the second word except that is always nearly twice as large as the filesize. total size of the firmware in RAM (i.e, with BSS section included) ? i don't see why this piece of information is necessary
16:48:25alkorrwhat i fear the most is there is an decryption to do before a possible decompression

17:24:14alkorrno i'm trying to uncompress the firmware

17:25:24alkorrzlib.h is okay, but i must specifiate a library to link but i cannot do with a -l since zlib is not standard naming for library
17:25:43Bagderright, its normally called libz.a
17:26:02alkorrokay i try it
17:26:51alkorrmaybe 'uncompress' is not in zlib.h... should not be so
17:27:40alkorrit is part
17:28:15Bagderremove the header and run a linux 'file' on it
17:28:29Bagderthen you might see what kind of compression it is
17:29:03alkorrarf !
17:29:48alkorrwell try but there is no reason there are signature after teh header to allow 'file' to recknolize
17:30:29Bagderif they used one of the formats zlib recognizes, I believe it could be possible
17:30:36Bagderbut I don't know
