Some feedback: I ran over 10 GB of test files through the utility and
it had no problem with any. Those that had errors played fine in Winamp
and mp3directcut. I also dug up a damaged recording from 2003 with
I could fix without a glitch.(Two years ago I got it to play with mp3fixer,
but some glitches remained.)

I suggest this tool should go into the list of
Rockbox specific tools on
even if it's not "polished".

For future version it would be useful if you could define a destination
directory for that fixed files - (this would make fixing on external USB
drives much faster)
