Subject: Questions regarding installing rombox
From: Aregullin, Manuel (Manuel_Aregullin_at_Intuit.com)
I've been attempting off and on to update my Archos recorder v2 to the
rombox, however, I've been unsuccessful in doing so.
I've received errors that "incompatible version" ETC. Apparently I hadn't
started the process properly, because I can still start and run my jukebox
and I still have voice support in the menus and my folder structure still
speaks voicing folder numbers. I'm usually pretty good technically and can
follow instructions, but for some reason I'm having problems with this
procedure. I'm attributing this to the fact that I'm probably over
interpreting the instructions and in no way
Should this reflect on those whom have spent several hours donating there
time updating the manual.
I've followed a link that was sent out by one of our rockbox community to
the manual which refers to flashing the recorder. AT first, some how I
became directed to download the file rombox-v2.zip however, today when I
went to look for the reference which I was following, I couldn't find it.
I'm not sure what that package would have been used for. I did find a
section regarding the actual procedure which does direct me to down a file
I'm not sure which of these I actually need. Should I update to the latest
daily build before trying to flash my jukebox?
Am I in fact using the proper terminology when thinking that flashing my
jukebox will install rombox, thus allowing more of my music to be buffered
while playing music it and conserving battery power?
Would someone be so kind as to tell me:
1. which package should I unzip to my jukebox?
2. I'm just not sure when I should rolo the AJZ file, and when does the ucl
file play a roll?
Any help would be appreciated in simplifying these instructions for me.
