Subject: RE: Emergency Charge?
From: Stuart Tedford (stuart.tedford_at_piresearch.co.uk)
Date: 2004-08-09


This feature already kind of exists. You just use the original Archos
firmware for charging, via powering up by inserting the charger with F1 held
down. I use it all the time, mostly becasue I don't trust the RockBox
charging algorithm to give me a full charge.
