I think there still are som inits that are not working (always) in the
If you have your charger plugged in,enough power in the batteries and the
disk spinning , trying to shutdown rockbox gives the expected result,
shutdown and reboot
Start rockbox, plugin the charger, wait untill the disk has stopped and
the unit and you'll get an ata -32 error.
The only thing to then is to unplug the charger before rebooting.
For me this is a very minor issue but hopefully this info can be of help
get around to add a "startup charging screen". But before start coding
take same time off, you have deserved it.
