Subject: Successful flash of V2 recorder and accessibility of flashing process.
From: Aman Singer (aman_at_asinger.net)
First, I now have a V2 flashed. I don't know if this is of any
importance any longer, but the flash team wanted to know hardware masks.
Secondly, for any other blind RBflashers out there, I'd suggest
having sighted help when you do the first flash with firmware_flash.rock. It
took me about ten minutes, including preparations with the PC and dumping
the ROM preflash, but the feedback from disk activity is somewhat limited,
particularly since the current .bin files don't seem to have talkbox
features. It's very brief, and anyone who can read the screen can help with
it. It's certainly an improvement from the standard way of booting.
Since flashing the two images need not be done often, I don't know
how vital it would be to get that talking, and understand it would be
technically difficult. However, I wonder if it would be possible to have
some way of flashing the second image only through the UCL file? The only
problem I found with that was finding the UCL file in the rockbox directory.
Of course, this wouldn't be a problem if either file names could be spelled,
or the UCL file could always be file x in a particular .rockbox directory.
For example, if the file were called zzrockbox.ucl, or something like that,
so it would always be the last file in a .rockbox folder, finding it to
flash with would be a snap. The same would apply if it were called
!rockbox.ucl. Does anyone have opinions on this?
Thanks as always for such a great piece of software.
