We've been talking bout this for a while. Someone even went to the effort
of putting one into pdf format (dunno what happened to it).

Long story short, if you want to write up a manual, and submit it to the
'patches' list, ill see about getting it commited to the cvs.

Hi!

Seems like rockbox is changing in a quite fast way, and some functions are not
well known or key combinations are difficult to find. If you install nowadays
rockbox for your first time, you most probably get lost, or don't know how to
use it 100%. That's why i think we need some kind of manual. At least for each
version (2.0, 2.1 and so on).
I've thought that this manual could be structured this way:

1.-Instalation
2.-Browser
3.-Main Menu
4.-Quick Screen Menus
5.-Special Functions?? (recording, vbrfix, ...)
6.-Anything else

I was thinking in writing this manual this weekend, but first wanted to know if
someone else had this idea and is doing the same, or if you have another
structure idea, and so on. Of course, i think that translators can also re-
start their engines and Translate the resulting manual to their language. Just
my opinion (I translate Spanish language).

Any suggestion is accepted.

"Man is a feeling creature, and because of it the greatest in
 the universe. He learned too late for himself that men have to find
 their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of
 perfection from outside ourselves. When men seek such perfection they
 find only death, fire, loss, disillusionment and the end of everything
 that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to our misery but it
 can't be given, it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to
 come from inside, from Man himself."
