Rockbox mail archiveSubject: Problem loading Archos firmware, new Archos error screen
From: TP Diffenbach (rockbox_at_diffenbach.org)
From my flashed FM, I tried to load the Archos FM firmware (1.30j).
During ROLO, the harddrive audibly stopped (with a loud click-thump.)
The Archos firmware load halted with its progress bar precisely half filled, and displayed the following (the bit in parentheses is my ASCII art for the progress bar):
HD register error
OS Version: 1.30j
Holding down OFF for the five seconds required for hardware off got rid of the screen, and flash bootup went normally; when I again tried to ROLO the Archos firmware I got the same result again.
My version (in flash) is 030721-0053, but this also happens for two older Rockbox versions, one a private build.
Maybe it's just a bad archos firmware (??) but I really don't think so, as it's worked before. I'll make a point of fc /b'ing it to the mirrored copyt when I get home.
Archos still boots as normally with ON+F1.
