01:09:08RBPFCis it possible to modify my mp3 player to act as an external soundcard?
01:09:41RBPFCwhy not
01:09:50peturwe almost had a gsoc student to write it but he went with another project
01:09:55RBPFCif i can move data to it i should be able to stream
01:10:10BigBambiIt is possible with some devices I thought
01:10:18BigBambiBut Rockbox can't do it at present
01:10:23RBPFCi know
01:10:32gevaertsIn principle it's possible, but someone has to write the code
01:10:36RBPFCdoes anyone know the binary architecture of Philips SA1210
01:10:48RBPFCit has some .sb files
01:10:53RBPFCand resource sections
01:11:12BigBambiRBPFC: Are you looking to port rockbox to it?
01:11:20RBPFCyes and no
01:11:32BigBambiif no, this is #rockbox...
01:11:39RBPFCi know

01:12:33BigBambioops :)
01:12:44BigBambiI meant which modified features?

01:13:50BigBambiOK, well check out, and have a look in the New Ports forum in the wiki (and on the wiki) to see if anyone has done any ground work
01:14:04BigBambiRBPFC: do you know the architecture?
01:14:37BigBambiI'd guess googling is an option, or you may have to open it up and look
01:15:13RBPFCi used google
01:15:18RBPFCand IDA is not helpful either
01:15:34RBPFCit has its very own architecture
01:15:37BigBambiwell, if no-one has already done it I guess you will need to open it and look at the chips

02:43:16FewlioI mean spread some butter on that because it's not gonna save your data anymore
02:43:29Fewliowhat're you using to format it?
02:43:41vertic23thought it'd be the easiest way
02:43:52vertic23even though if I had the feeling that it wouldnot work

02:45:38Fewlioyou might be able to replace the drive if it's really busted
02:45:58Fewliochance that it's windows just failing, which it doesn't seem to do much in simple tasks like formatting a drive
02:46:31FewlioI suggest finding a second opinion

03:46:37vertic23search for dualboot
03:46:48vertic23doesnot look that good, Fewlio
03:47:09Fewlioit did that when I plugged the USB in with the sansa on
03:47:24Fewliowhich I found was an older bug apparently
03:48:02soap__Dragon__, A: the __ before your name is annoying. B: Rockbox does not have a USB mode of its own. If you want disk access you must be in Apple firmware of one sort or another. If you want to simply charge, press "Menu" while inserting the USB plug.
03:48:44vertic23heh, it booted with the new build
03:48:56vertic23love ya all :D :***

03:54:01vertic23I'm using the front USB connector - though I don't think my motherboard got 1.1 ^^
03:54:14JdGordon|unichrisjs169: yes
03:55:12chrisjs169JdGordon|uni, i managed to put a corrupt i2c on my sansa's recovery mode drive, and broke it. I've used e200tool dozens of times, but for some reason this time it doesn't seem to enter preboot mode
03:55:40chrisjs169e200tool init doesn't pick it up, and lsusb doesn't show it as a portalplayer device
03:56:28chrisjs169kugel and I are talking on MSN, and can't figure out why it's not entering preboot mode
03:56:50LloreanWhy were you putting an i2c rom on it in the first place?

03:58:34chrisjs169i'm not really asking for a howto on fixing it, (./e200tool i2cprogram <file>) I'm just asking how it's possible for it to not enter manufacturing nor preboot mode
03:59:03LloreanAnd I'm trying to figure out the steps that led up to it refusing to boot, because sometimes a cause is more than "just the last thing that happened"
03:59:18chrisjs169Oh, ok
04:00:21LloreanThough you might want to try to catch gevaerts around. He'd be asleep right now, I'd imagine, but if you can catch him, I think he has the most experience causing damage to a Sansa (notably a c200 though) and consequently recovering it.
04:00:53chrisjs169I was mostly messing with e200tool's recovery for when the bootloader fails (haven't had much to do today) and one of the times i was in recovery mode I had placed a corrupt I2c on it. The Sansa froze writing the boot rom, and after a hard shutdown, it stopped working
04:02:41chrisjs169Looks like gevearts usually gets off around 7:30 my time (2.5 hours ago)
04:03:31 Part Fewlio ("Leaving")
04:04:01joecoolusing a sansa e200 on rockbox, is it possible to get it to charge on usb like ipod does
04:04:10joecoolby holding menu or something
04:04:13LloreanHonestly though, if you can't get it into any sort of mode where your PC can detect it as a USB device, I can't imagine there will be much you can do without hardware intervention.
04:04:17Lloreanjoecool: Hold the center button.
04:04:41 Join jhulst [0] (n=jhulst@unaffiliated/jhulst)
04:06:12chrisjs169Llorean, That's kind of what I figured, but I'm just confused as I thought that the Sansa can't be bricked without hardware modification, as it will always go to Preboot or Manufacturing mode if there's a problemn
04:06:17joecoolone other thing
04:06:26joecoolwhat is this study mode
04:07:09chrisjs169I've also (yay, more warranty voiding) tried removing the daughterboard just to make sure it can't try to execute any startup code, to force it into preboot mode, but without any luck
04:07:36kugeljoecool: With the mode enabled, you don't skip the entire track if you press |<< or >>|, but rather jump back/forward lets say 5 minutes
04:07:45kugelthe time can be specified in the settings afaik
04:08:55joecoolhrm.. the dsp really sucks in the sansa compared to ipod :(
04:09:02joecoolglad i did not buy
04:09:02kugelchrisjs169: I'm not entirely sure, but I think you should be even able to get into menu mode without the daughterboard
04:09:20Lloreanjoecool: "DSP" means "digital signal processing", and would be affects applied mostly by the software, not hardware relevant...
04:09:26kugelwhich means, removing it does nothing
04:09:34chrisjs169kugel, AFAIK, manu mode requires a working i2c, which is stored in the daughterboard
04:09:51kugelchrisjs169: again, I'm not sure
04:10:02joecoolin case noone in here saw me a day ago... that was 2 days of sleep deprivation, this is day 3 now
04:10:11joecooler night now... it all feels the same after awhile

04:17:08vertic23not yet.. or not anymore? how old is that one?
04:17:16scorche|shnot anymore
04:17:34vertic23I see
04:19:27kugelvertic23: most of the rockbox targets aren't available anymore. Except on ebay of course
04:19:29vertic23hmm, I learned now that only very few players are still in active "production" - selling
04:19:45vertic23yeah, hmm sad
04:20:25vertic23so I go and look for which one the rockbox will be available in the future, heh? :D
04:20:51kugelvertic23: cowon d2 seems promising
04:21:08kugelthat's the only player which I know being still available
04:21:23LloreanI wouldn't recommend the d2 to someone who seems to be looking for an HD based player.
04:21:27kugelbut, this one is pretty much the opposite of the M3
04:21:47LloreanPerhaps the Gigabeat S. More recently unavailable, so you can often find them used or refurbished.
04:21:49vertic23Llorean: I am looking for a player for my girlfriend
04:22:07vertic23so ...the player doesnot be that ...expensive hehehe
04:22:29Lloreanvertic23: Well, you'll more or less just have to search the internet.
04:22:30kugelvertic23: Then I#d recomment ebay
04:22:44LloreanD2 is probably not your best bet, since it's impossible to predict when it'll be really usable

05:41:29sharky6000after sansapatcher it pretty much goes right to "2.4 Running Rockbox"

05:49:42sharky6000alright, my bad.. thanks for the help, but i would maybe suggest changing "onto your player" to "to the root of your device" =)

08:15:09newnickhey guya
08:16:06newnickquick question
08:16:27newnickipod 6g, you working on a rockbox release for it?
08:16:30Mouser_XQuick answer: No.
08:16:36Mouser_XAh, you asked after all.
08:16:49Mouser_XAnswer is still hte same.
08:17:04newnickmay i ask why
08:17:12newnicknot possiable? or?
08:17:20LloreanBecause work gets done by people who own the player and are interested.
08:17:21Mouser_XThe iPod Classic is using unknown hardware, and has an encrypted firmware file.
08:17:33LloreanIt's not easy, and nobody who owns the player has been up to the work.
08:17:43newnickah ok
08:18:04newnicki thought the hardware would be pretty much the same as the previous model
08:18:08Mouser_XWork can't be done, because no one knows what the hardware is, and that can't be figured out without disassembling the firmware. One can't disassemble the firmware, because it's encrypted.
08:18:27newnickwhere theres a will theres a way
08:18:33Mouser_XNo doubt.
08:18:36Mouser_XThere's no will.
08:19:40newnickits been like 7 months though.. would of thought someone would have got it by now... but ah well.. thanks for clearing that up for me
08:19:53Mouser_XAt least, there's no will to do it, from those who have the capability. Those that can are endevouring to do other things which they deem more worthwhile, or more entertaining, or easier.
08:20:14newnickyeah true

08:24:07Mouser_XOne of the commits gave me the impression that I might need a new bootloader.
08:24:15Mouser_XThough, I'm entirely unsure on that.
08:25:04GodEateronce you have a rockbox bootloader on there, is upgrading it possible by simply replacing the nk.bin on the first partition with the new one ?
08:25:13GodEateror do you still have to boot OF and use sendfirm ?
08:25:14Mouser_XIndeed it is.
08:25:21GodEaterneat :D
08:25:36Mouser_XMy problem is building an updated bootloader.
08:26:15*Llorean is more or less just waiting until power management is more complete to start using his beast, so he doesn't need OF.
08:26:50Mouser_XOF is nice for video out. Video out kind of sucks though...
08:27:15GodEatermake your mind up ;)
08:27:30*linuxstb is waiting for 160GB disks...
08:27:43Mouser_XIt's nice to have the feature, but the feature is poorly implemented.

08:41:14LloreanWell "so far" being "up until that thread"
08:41:15linuxstbI thought it was just some of the iaudios...
08:41:23linuxstbSo it seems broken virtually everywhere...
08:41:39LloreanSince austriancoder's commit, at least as far as I know.
08:42:26LloreanAt least, that broke it completely on gigabeat until part of it was reverted, and it seems to mark the time the problems began cropping up for other people, though I don't know of the non-saving problem has been explicitly narrowed down to that revision yet.

11:39:08GodEaterand just to double check, it's possible to replace the nk.bin from the bootloader's usb mode? Or is that a bad idea, and I should do it from rockbox proper ?

13:08:40MiniUserHi, I'm using an Ipod mini, 1st gen with rockbox r17250-080426. I'm getting a lot of errors when copying files to the player from xubuntu. A lot of the time, I'll try to copy a file and the attempt will fail with an I/O error, and then it becomes impossible to eject the Ipod without shutting down the computer
13:09:10MiniUserit's happening on 2 different machines, one with xubuntu 7.10, the other with 8.04
13:09:26MiniUsermy windows machine is down at the moment so haven't been able to try there
13:09:38domonokyMiniUser: did you check the disk on your player for errors ?
13:10:10MiniUserI've fsck'ed the player, nothing special, and the problem has reoccurred
13:10:54*Buschel added a patch to the tracker which enables 128KB IRAM for PP5022/24 -> FS #8987
13:10:58MiniUserI've googled, looked through manuals and faqs, So far nothing
13:11:26 Join das-perceptron [0] (
13:12:09Buschelthere is also a patch included to take advantage of the additional iram for musepack decoding
13:12:23B4gdersounds like a good idea to make sure we use more iram
13:12:45 Part das-perceptron
13:12:59B4gder5022 and 5024 are the most popular PP models too - counted by download
13:13:03domonokyMiniUser: its probably not a rockbox problem, as on ipods rockbox doesnt have its own usb mode (till now) .. you are using apple software for usb transfers..
13:13:25MiniUserany ideas on where to look then?
13:13:49BuschelB4dger: it also can help runtime as some of the codecs can be further optimized now
13:14:03MiniUserit's a second hand player, I never used it with Itunes aside from reflashing it, but I can try moving files with itunes to test it out

13:14:30BuschelB4dger: nevertheless somebody should check my patch. i am not sure everything is done right. works for me though

15:30:51domonokyvoltagex: do you have more details when it is crashing and how ?
15:31:05voltagexinstalling the bootloader
15:31:10LambdaCalculus37And also what device you're trying to install Rockbox onto?
15:31:14voltagexafter it finishes downloading bootloader.bin
15:31:24voltagexsorry for not providing details... H340
15:33:09voltagexi think it's the firmware patching app that's crashing
15:34:10LambdaCalculus37Have you tried with both the "Small Installation" and "Full Installation" options?
15:34:29voltagexsame result
15:34:37voltagexcrash before the .hex is patched
15:34:40domonokyLambdaCalculus37: that wont help its the same code.. :-)
15:34:48domonokyvoltagex: whats the last output ?
15:34:55voltagexwith both 1.29 and 1.30 firmware .hexes
15:35:12voltagex"Downloading bootloader.bin"
15:36:14domonokyvoltagex: could try running it from a console, and see if there a more outputs on the console ?
15:36:42voltagexdomonoky: unsure how to run the osx .app from a console
15:37:00*domonoky also doesnt know OSX.. :-)
15:37:25LambdaCalculus37voltagex: Run it by typing "open <appname>.app" in the console.
15:37:37*LambdaCalculus37 is glad he bought that "Unix for Mac OS X" book :)
15:39:08LambdaCalculus37voltagex: Before you do that though... is RbUtil in "Applications" in the Finder?
15:39:20voltagexdesktop & on my h300
15:39:27voltagexlocation does not change the crash
15:39:59***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
15:40:54voltagexrbutil doesn't seem to like the EU version of 1.30 firmware
15:41:17LambdaCalculus37Try with the J or K versions, then.
15:41:21domonokyfirmware patching for h300 with rbutil works fine on windows, but i am not sure if someone tested it on Mac.. :-)
15:41:56voltagexdomonoky: i will be your test pilot...note i had it working on Tiger, i am now on Leopard
15:43:05voltagexok OSX's crash reporter has hundreds of qtcore errors from rbutil captured
15:43:19domonokywhat do you mean with "rbutil doesnt like 1.30 EU" ? what does rbutil say for it..
15:43:31voltagexUnable to detect firmware type
15:44:21domonokyah, then its probably too new, rbutil has a list of hashes built in, to identify the firmwares, and check the patched result.. do be really sure its working..
15:44:46voltagexnew as in 4 years old?
15:44:52domonokyas a broken patched firmware can brick a hxxx player... (only BDM will then help) ..
15:45:20voltagexi just bricked one h300 by blowing a capacitor, so this is a new one which i do not want to brick
15:46:12voltagexhave a look -
15:46:39domonokyso nobody has done the neccessary tests, and provided the md5sums needed for the v1.30EU firmware, and as we have other working versions, nobody cares ..:-)

15:49:27voltagexok if you can give me the gdb commands to run
15:49:30domonokyso if you can compile rbutil on your mac, it would really help... :-) (i dont have a mac)..

15:50:00voltagexIntel, 1st gen macbook
15:50:15linuxstbOK, I just wanted to rule out an endian problem...
15:50:30domonokyif you have built rbutil as debug, just run "gdb ./rbutil" then "run" and when it crashes "bt" ..
15:50:57voltagexactually don't think this is 1st gen but who cares
15:51:14voltagexok ./configure −−enable-debug right?
15:51:49domonokysee :
15:52:25domonokyuse "qmake -config db" + "make" to build a debug build of rbutil..

17:31:07Buschelbertrik: or are you asking for plugins vs. core?
17:32:02*Buschel needs to undo r17470 :/
17:32:29preglowBuschel: it was introduced via a patch, but i think official svn has the same code from the same guy (snowgoon). if rockbox didn't use it properly, why not fix that instead of removing it?
17:32:39Buschelif there is strange behaviour in the audiothread debug screen, there will some more in other parts of rockbox
17:33:02r0rshachmy question is kind out there, but i get the feeling rock box is capable of it...
17:33:07bertrikBuschel: Both. IIUC, iram is a scarce resource that could be of benefit to a lot of functions. What I mean is, how do we decide which parts DO get to use IRAM and which parts do not?
17:33:45bertrikor is there enough of it now?
17:33:53preglowwe've gotten more iram?
17:33:55Buschelpreglow: i will have a look at it.
17:34:25n1spreglow: we only use 96kB even on targets with more currently
17:34:28linuxstbr0rshach: Just ask...
17:34:31r0rshachI can continute taking more photos?
17:34:43r0rshachshoot whoops
17:34:44saratogabertrik: unless theres some specific need for IRAM in the core I don't see much sense in giving the core more since it uses relatively little CPU time compared to codecs
17:34:45r0rshachone sec
17:34:53preglowBuschel: anyway, i'm quite satisfied with our mpc seek efficiency as it is, i just want to keep our code as close to official as possible if there's not a good reason
17:35:18preglowwell, if you ask me, the best place to use iram is for codecs and some occasional core stuff
17:35:51r0rshachCan I extract photos off my camera, w.o a pc, to my rockbox enabled player and store them in a folder?

17:45:07preglowBuschel: it doesn't matter, the codec buffer is always 512 kb
17:45:25linuxstbIt would be nice to reduce it though...
17:45:46preglowsure, but the mpc seek table code can change the stride in the seek table for big files
17:45:54preglowso we could keep that arbitrarily small
17:48:29Buschelbertrik: if you were in the audiothread debug menu, it was not possible to skip one track. it always skipped 2.
17:49:17Buschelpreglow: the stride did not work. i hardcoded the source to always use the seek table and set it to 512 entries. it crashes then.
17:49:51Buschelpreglow: maybe the limitation to 512KB is the reason for a flyspray entry which describes playback and seek erros on long duration files >60min
17:50:48preglowBuschel: if that doesn't work, it wouldn't surprise me
17:52:34Buschelpreglow: maybe its better to limit the seek table to each 40 frames or so. this would still lead to a precision of 1 second
17:53:23Buschelpreglow: that's what i will try.

19:45:42*preglow doesn't feel very strongly about anti-aliased fonts
19:45:55fmlBut I think the modern player have got enough RAM to have that. And that would allow nice fonts to be implemented.
19:46:20jhMikeSipod video OF has antialiased fonts so I don't know why it would be a huge burdon

19:50:46fmlCouldn't we implement a somewhat reduced anti aliasing, i.e. only for a one-color-background? So when the font is loaded, it's "precalculated" for that background color
19:50:55*jhMikeS always means "implement" as in "nothing cut in capability" too
19:51:33jhMikeSfm1: I would never do it with anything less than blendable with anything or there no real point imho

19:54:19bluebrotherfml: still, it increases code size and complexity. So ...
19:54:29Voradorfml, you can check clR6x12-(12) font (Grey Scale theme -> which looks pretty good even without anti aliasing and silk nano icon theme ;)
19:54:52preglowif we are to implement alpha blending, we should surely do it properly, no hacks
19:54:57fmlLlorean: I have not tried the patch. But I've seen enough comparisons of anti aliased vs. no anti aliased. And AA looks way better.
19:54:59preglowno one forces you to use it anyway
19:55:17fmlbluebrother: sure. But it also gives you something.
19:55:46Lloreanfml: If you haven't seen it on-player, comparing antialiased and normal versions of the same font, I don't see at all how you can say it looks "way better"
19:55:57LloreanThe screens of the players make a significant difference.
19:56:10bluebrothersure. The big question is if it's worth the price.
19:56:38bluebrotherIMO it would be much better to concentrate on making the current state better −− i.e. squash bugs etc. But I also think a release would be nice.
19:57:24bluebrotheronly adding new features all the time only tends to make the code unmaintainable. Or at least makes that much harder.
19:57:37austriancoderis a m:robe 100 owner online?
19:57:47bluebrotheraustriancoder: yes :)
19:58:19fmlVorador: the small font is too small for me, and in the large, I dont't like the round pieces, e.g. lower left rounding of 'e' and 'a'
19:58:42Lloreanaustriancoder: Would you have any idea why we've got many users saying they can't save bass/treble settings? They can set them, but they don't get saved on shutdown, at boot up they're not working.
19:58:51jhMikeSLlorean: but it's also a target with a memory framebuffer so really it's not slow at all

21:19:11saratogaout of curiosity, do you know if we use the extra IRAM in core on that target?
21:19:21saratogait would be nice if we could also use that IRAM for codecs
21:19:41linuxstbNo, I've no idea how much core IRAM any of the targets use. "someone" should find out...
21:20:00saratogai assume thats as easy as checking the .map files?
21:20:07linuxstbAt least the codec and main stacks are always in IRAM - about 9KB each IIRC.

21:54:38EvilnickHowever, the iPod does have a nicer screen (in terms of alignment anyway)
21:54:50EvilnickAnd far more support from case manufacturers etc!
21:54:59tkoodaI know the GB's got a faster cpu.. but presuming it plays the same audio (and I don't need mpeg2 video)...
21:55:18tkoodahow long does the ipod take to mount via usb?
21:55:40EvilnickI also think that the wheel isn't a very nice way to navigate. I've used an ipod video for a few months and I will still overshoot way more often
21:56:22Lloreantkooda: They don't play the same audio equally well. If you turn on too many DSP features and have a complex WPS you can experience playback dropouts on the iPod. As well, higher complexity formats (AAC+SBR, Monkey's Audio) won't play at all on iPods.
21:57:33tkoodais there any other hdd player recomended over the F40?
21:57:56LambdaCalculus37The Gigabeat S, although that port needs a little more work.
21:58:16LloreanThe Gigabeat S is just coming into its own, though the install process is still a bit complicated, and the port is in the early stages of being usable so not *everything* works well yet (for example, charging should still be done in the OF)
21:58:25gevaertstkooda: the short summary is that it entirely depends on you

22:07:46amiconnThat's a requirement for g1/g2 suspend, proper iaudio power management, ...

22:08:40*Llorean will probably always prefer discrete buttons.
22:09:11*amiconn too
22:09:22preglowme too, i guess
22:09:39linuxstbI've never got on with the h1x0's joystick though.
22:09:58amiconnI used my new "super-mini" this weekend, and while it's really nice to be able to carry all my music on such a small and robust device, the wheel always annoys me
22:10:16jhMikeSamiconn: I'm ready to move on it due to the new charging algorithm required for the beast
22:10:44toffe82try to the gogear serie and you will like better the discretes buttons
22:10:53saratogai'm really surpised the S has software charging, i'd think that'd be too dangerous
22:11:27amiconnjhMikeS: Basically, the inner loop should call the various functions, instead of the current method to implement the more frequent task as the "sleep function" for the once-per-minute tasks
22:11:57amiconnThat's a pretty fundamental change though, and needs testing on all targets, especially recorder v1 (software NiMH chargign)
22:12:26amiconnsaratoga: I think it's software charging with hardware protection
22:12:28jhMikeSsaratoga: why would it be too dangerous?
22:13:02*preglow wonders why anyone would implement software charging
22:13:13preglowtons of nice cheap charging chips around
22:13:15*amiconn wouldn't dare coming too close to a purely software charged LiIon cell
22:13:18saratogabecause if you put too much current into a lipoly battery they catch fire and then cause lawsuits
22:13:51jhMikeSsaratoga: why program it to put too much current in? :)
22:14:00*linuxstb resurrects the "torch" plugin
22:14:17amiconnThe iaudio X5 and M5 have kinda hybrid charging. All basic charging control is done by hardware (the PCF), but in order to get 500mA USB charging, we need to implement software control
22:14:24*bertrik points linuxstb to the fireworks plugin
22:14:25amiconnOtherwise it will only charge at 100mA
22:14:32saratogathe "too much" point for current varies as a function of temperture and charge cycle, so its more a case of failing to not program too much current
22:14:55*preglow sees his first sd card attempts fail
22:15:13jhMikeSsaratoga: it's has current and temperature readout. the Lion cell charging really isn't that difficult
22:15:26saratogahardware charging is fail safe, since it typically involves a dedicated gate array that watches the temperture and voltage level
22:16:03saratogawhat happens if the player crashes? does the charging circuit disengage if the CPU stops talking to it?
22:16:10amiconnMy main concern isn't that the algorithm miscalculates something, but that the software crashes, leaving a high charging current set without control
22:16:13jhMikeSit's not much different from PP or x5 in that you turn on the charging current by software
22:16:38saratogathats basically hardware charging then . . .
22:16:39jhMikeSit has a voltage limiter and then you watch battery current for the constant voltage phase.
22:16:40amiconnBut if the charging voltage is capped properly, there is no problem
22:16:48amiconn(in hardware)
22:16:57jhMikeSbut you must turn the charger off in software once it's done
22:17:04bertrikamiconn: sure about that? what voltage would be safe then?
22:17:26saratogaas long as the hardware is throttleing the current and not the software, its more or less a hardware charger
22:17:40jhMikeSthe battery will slowly rise above the limit in order to continout past the constant current stage
22:17:43saratogasince you can't really over charge such a system
22:17:50amiconnbertrik: I mean in hardware, of course. The exact LiIon end-of-charging voltage is temperature and model dependent
22:18:22jhMikeSyou can and you never leave Lion batteries trickly charging, you stop charge and let them drop again to about 4.05V and then top off again
22:19:36bertrikamiconn: so to properly charge you need a table of end-of-charging voltages vs. temperature?
22:20:02*jhMikeS is glad to be able to use a charge current readout to make things simpler. :)
22:20:19amiconnbertrik: No, you need a chip that controls end-of-charge voltage, matching the cell
22:20:34amiconn...and in good thermal contact with the cell
22:21:26bertrikI am looking at charging for the e200/c200's that use a AS3514 for charging but I'm getting confusing results
22:22:02bertrikI can configure a max. charging current and charging voltage, but there's no mention of temperature factoring into that, except for a high-temperature safety of course
22:22:49jhMikeSLion packs have safety circuitry built in to keep things in safe limits. this gives a charging algorithm for Lion:
22:23:03*amiconn thinks doing that properly needs a little OF RE
22:24:03LearOn a data abort on the arm, does the address readout say anything useful?
22:24:25preglowLear: well, yeah, where it happened
22:24:26gevaertsIt should be the address of the instruction that caused the abort
22:24:31saratogai think most people just assume a constant temperture when charging and expect the hardware to cut out if it gets too hot
22:24:41preglowLear: at least i think i fixed it up so that it's the correct address
22:25:33bertrikThe AS3514 does have an end-of-charge bit, but it seems to become active before reaching the configured voltage. In some cases it doesn't become set at all (e.g. when charging a battery that is already quite close to the max. charge voltage).
22:25:43LearHrm, so would an abort in crt0-pp make sense?
22:25:53gevaertsOf course you can get a data abort (indirectly) from stack corruption as well
22:25:57saratogahmm blackhawk made a random post about getting rockbox running on his ezx without using the motorola QTE headers at all, but rather some native linux api
22:26:04saratogai really need to find this guy
22:26:07LearSorry, read wrong...

22:47:23jhMikeSbertrik: Current draw seems to be more significant a factor than termination voltage. The hardware should handle the voltage part.

22:49:37bluebrotherhmm. Installed cygwin and building checkwps fails due to the ATTRIBUTE_PRINTF in debug.h. Do I need to install special stuff for that to work?
22:50:07amiconnThere's probably an #include missing
22:51:58evilnickI'm being told that my C compiler cannot create executables
22:52:13gevaertson linux ?
22:52:31Bagderthen you probably lack some of the necessary packages
22:52:36saratogahave you installed a c compiler?
22:52:42linuxstbTry "sudo apt-get install build-essential"
22:53:09*gevaerts had that once after accidentally screwing up the permissions on /tmp
22:53:13bertrikThe AS3514 handles both the charge current and the voltage, but does not allow to measure current (as far as I know anyway). There is an end-of-charge indication on which the software has to act to stop the charger. The datasheet mentions that end-of-charge current level is at 10% Inom (typical)
22:53:35evilnickI'm following the instructions on the crosscompiler wiki.

23:03:34*amiconn is a bit puzzled, because *enabling* the hack on mini (before the fix) didn't help at all
23:05:46jhMikeSamiconn: Nico_P checked it
23:06:03Nico_Pmy test was rather basic
23:07:23jhMikeSNico_P: I don't remember much delay in hearing "unresponsive" on previous tries :)
23:07:39Nico_Phehe :)
23:08:19Nico_Pit does feel more responsive than it was without the hack before the fix, but I can't guarantee the behaviour is the same without and with the hack

23:15:32LearHm, buffering thread stack seems to be larger than necessary...
23:15:42gevaertsI've not had i2c issues yet, so I can't really suggest anything
23:16:05dan_aI've not done anything on it in a long time though, and I've never been any good at reading disassemblies
23:16:21linuxstbdan_a: Do you understand how the library blocks are organised in the firmware file? I'm not sure how to calculate their start addresses...
23:16:22chrisjs169gevaerts, a while back (nearly a year ago) i managed to brick my sansa by shorting the daughterboard due to a drop of water, which put it into preboot mode. i suppose what i'm asking is do you know if the i2c is stored on the daugherboard?
23:16:32*amiconn spotted something interesting in the DEV_EN table

23:16:51Bagderchrisjs169: I don't think anyonw knows where that memory is physically located
23:17:14*gevaerts can fix nand flash issues on c200, but i2c issues on e200 are unfortunately still out of his reach
23:17:24chrisjs169Bagder, ok, I figured since e200tool can read from it, it'd be known
23:17:33linuxstbdan_a: The Clip OF contains a lot of thumb code, which makes it nastier as well. At least for me using objdump (I should start using IDA...)
23:17:53Bagderchrisjs169: only from the processor's view, not from physical
23:18:09chrisjs169Bagder, ah
23:18:28dan_alinuxstb: I don't understand it at the moment. I'll have a look at what everyone else has found out so far, and see what I can add to that
23:19:07chrisjs169Bagder, do you know if it's possible for the sansa to try running/executing/(whatever the proper word is) the i2c, failing, and not go into preboot mode? I'm rather stumped as to how it isn't going into either preboot or manufacturing mode
23:19:53Bagderchrisjs169: we've not seen it happen before, but I guess everything is possible even though unusual
23:21:00chrisjs169Bagder, ok. I've always heard (and said) that it isn't possible to brick a Sansa without hardware modifications, so I've just been rather confused
23:21:37bluebrotherdomonoky: I did? Dang.
23:21:47Bagderchrisjs169: so how did it end up like this?
23:21:55*domonoky just fixed.. another commit count increase.. :-)
23:22:44chrisjs169Bagder, I had put a copy of the i2c rom on the recovery mode partition, and the sansa froze while writing it
23:23:39gevaertsAnd since then it does basically nothing ? Did you do a hard reset ?
23:24:09 Quit pondlife (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
23:24:19chrisjs169gevaerts, I've done everything from hard resets, to booting with no battery (power via usb), to removing the daugherboard itself, without any luck
23:24:21Bagderchrisjs169: I would expect that you just use the extension ".bin" and replace your BL with it...
23:24:43Bagderhm no
23:24:46Bagderthe BL is .rom
23:25:00chrisjs169i2c is .bin
23:25:15chrisjs169suppose "i2c rom" wasn't correct then
23:25:34Bagderbut the BL has no known way of writing it
23:25:52*linuxstb hugs his "unbrickable" telechips devices with their usb boot mode safely stored in ROM
23:26:14*gevaerts dares linuxstb to lend one of these to chrisjs169
23:26:27chrisjs169gevaerts, heh
23:26:34chrisjs169Bagder, really? because placing an i2c.bin file on the 16mb-format drive causes it to write it
23:26:35*Bagder offers a quote from an old mrh mail:
23:26:40 Quit petur ("*plop*")
23:26:47Bagder"You do not upload i2c.bin via 'recover'. You copy it to the recovery 'disk' and hopefully it will be written to the i2c boot-ROM"
23:27:05linuxstb"hopefully" ? ;)
23:27:07Bagder"You NEVER ever copy ANY .bin file on the recovery disk unless you cannot get to the manufacturing mode anymore."
23:27:27chrisjs169Bagder, yeah, that's what I noticed
23:27:29gevaertsThat seems to match what we see
23:27:29Bagder"I cannot emphasize this point too much."

23:30:05evilnickgevaerts: thanks again. That's good to know!
23:30:10chrisjs169i've thought that since my last sansa went directly to preboot after I shorted the daughterboard, the i2c would be stored somewhere on the daughterboard as well (perhaps that small chip on the bottom?
23:30:11bluebrotherevilnick: as a start you could "export PATH=/your/compiler/path:$PATH"

23:31:16mcuelenaere"Build should have been done 117m 50s ago, at 21:33:09" -> shouldn't this get fixed?
23:31:43chrisjs169Bagder, that's what seems odd though - if it was, the sansa should be in preboot mode right now (i have the daugherboard out) instead of some dead mode

23:40:28gevaertschrisjs169: I've used the wireshark/usbmon way for a bit, but I'm actually more used to sniffing hardware
23:40:49linuxstbvoltagex: Then that's probably the problem - you need to add that to the -I include path somewhere in the rbutilqt Makefile
23:41:55linuxstbI think you'll need to add that to INCPATH in rbutilqt/Makefile
