Hi

Given that it is not talking right now, I have some questions.
1. How do I verify that I do in fact have the Rockbox bootloader on the unit
so we know it is active?
2. Is there anything else I can do to check that Rockbox is running even
though it is not speaking?

*Looks like you've done everything according to Hoile so far. If you still
don't have voice feedback try playing a song and pressing and holding down
the joy stick button for a couple of seconds. You should then here voice
feed back of the while playing screen (WPS). At that point press the third
button down on the right hand side of the unit. You should then be in the
main menu where you can change your settings. Keep in mind I'm talking
about the IHP140 and not the H340. I am assuming that the units are very
similar other then the color screen. If you want to access the main menu
without the WPS then play a song, stop it, press the second button down from
the top right, then press the third button which should take you to the menu
tree where you use the joy stick to browse. As indicated by other posts you
need to have the english.voice file unzipped to the rockbox.langs folder as
well. To here your file folders and song/book titles voiced go to the
general settings/voice menu and choose numbers or spell. You can also
install the voice talkbox utility which will create small MP3 clips of your
files and folders that enables then to be spoken. See the rockbox page for
blind users for more info.

Thanks for any help.

Hi
I have an iRiver H340, I am a totally blind user, and wanted to install
Rockbox, accepting of course that it is in its early stages of development.

At the moment, although I have installed Rockbox, it does not appear to be
working and I wondered if anyone could please help. Here is what I did.

1. I downloaded firmware version 1.29EU as I live in the UK, unzipped the
archive to reveal the H300.hex file.

2. I then downloaded the program to patch the firmware, and accordingly
patched it. I got a confirmation message to say that the patch had been
successfully done.

3. I put the newly patched .hex file on the iRiver.

4. I asked my wife to go to the general menu, then update firmware. A
confirmation message appeared asking me not to touch the unit while the
update was going ahead. It then switched itself off. I know there has been
a firmware change since I now have a "record" folder whereas I had
previously deleted that.

5. I downloaded the latest Rockbox for the iRiver 300 series as a zipped
archive, unzipped it to the iRiver. I now have the rockbox.iriver file and
the Rockbox folder on the iRiver.

Given that it is not talking right now, I have some questions.
1. How do I verify that I do in fact have the Rockbox bootloader on the unit
so we know it is active?
2. Is there anything else I can do to check that Rockbox is running even
though it is not speaking?

Thanks for any help.
