Subject: Re: Flashed FM Recorder
From: Roy Horton (roy_at_spiderdesigns.com)
Date: 2003-09-22


OK... so I figured out part of the problem, which is probably
documented somewhere that I didn't find... If you plug it in while it
is on, then turn it off (while still plugged in). The next time you
turn it on, the battery level will be back to it's low setting..

but if you plug it in and unplug it only when it is off, the levels
will display correct...

also, if you turn it on (unplugged) then plug it in and turn it
off... the display will say 100%... unplug it and turn it back on and
it will say 8-9%...

end result, I will only charge it while it is off...

if this is all repitition, I apologize...

I flashed my FM recorder and everything works great, except for the battery levels, I've looked all over and can't find anything documenting a fix or the problem:

the charging screen says 100% - which matches the rockbox charging percent when I F1-Boot, but when I unplug the recorder, the level goes down to about 8% and then slowly goes back up... I though that perhaps the recorder needed to 'learn' the battery consumption, so to speak, but it happened again next time it fully charged...

is this a bug in the flash version (up to date, BTW) or just on mine?

I have also looked for how to bring back the original firmware, which I backed up... with no luck. I assume I rename the original 256k file to firmware_fm.bin or something to that effect? If you could point me to documentation on this, I'd appreciate it...
