Subject: RE: Flash ROM survey wrapup, boot ROM research
From: Andreas Stemmer (
Date: 2003-05-23

I really appreciate your effort to get rockbox into rom, but how much
time do you expect to save this way? I did a quick test: it takes about
15s to boot rockbox and about 12s to boot directly from rom without any
ajbrec.ajz. There's not a big difference because you have to spin up the
harddisk anyway to look for an alternative ajbrec.ajz. When the disk is
running, loading it into ram is done quickly.

Just my thoughts...
