Hi,
Thanks for your answers, but I have an other problem...

I try 4 times ( it is 20030804 cvs home compiled version) :
- 1 rombox charging screen ( not enough power to start hd )
- 1 rombox charging, with 5% of battery left so normal charge with fully
loaded rombox
- 1 on+f1 archos -> ajbrec.ajz of the same rockbox version ( battery 9%
left )
- 1 on+f1 archos without ajbrec.ajz ( renamed ajbrec_.ajz so not loaded
)....
I the 3 config, charging stopped after between one hour to 2h30
reporting battery full ! Rockbox can run about 2 to 4 hours before low
battery shutdown
only the original firmware manage to charge ( in 8 hours ) really fully
cells and rockbox can run more than 8 hours after that...

It is an jbr20, original firmware version 1.28

ROM: 2.00
