Hi Maurice,

To check battery level, go to the main menu, choose Info, then
Rockbox Info. You'll hear the battery strength as a percentage of charge.

As for installing daily builds, you unzip them to your iPod, using
whatever letter has been assigned to the iPod by Windows
Explorer. Boot to the Apple firmware before doing this or
transferring any files to or from the iPod, as it dramatically
increases the transfer speed.

As for switching tracks, if it's in the same album, I just press the
Forward or Back button lightly as many times as needed. If I want to
go to a different album, I press Play/Pause for about 2 seconds; the
track stops, and I'm in the file browser. Then I can move wherever I
want and still have speech.

I'm not sure what CVS means. As for daily builds, I look at the CVS
history on the main Rockbox.org page to see whether it looks like
anything likely to improve iPod performance has been done lately. If
so, I install the latest daily build. If not, I don't. Of course,
I'm no expert, so it may be that I don't always guess correctly about
whether improvements have been made, but I do my best. Good luck.

Cheers,
Anna
