Subject: Rockbox void warranty?
From: Tony Agee (ageetw_at_oceana.net)
Date: 2003-07-11


I tried holding the power button down, the green light will blink a few
times then stop. However, as long as I hold down the power button I can hear
this "clickclickclick" sound. It sounds like the hard drive has somehow
failed.

I'm glad I kept the warranty card for this thing, but I am pretty sure
they'll find the Rockbox installed and void the warranty. :(
