Re: I river h10 20 gb and new blind user
Here are instructuions for installing Rockbox on your H10
- Download http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/iriver/H10_20GC.mi4<http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/iriver/>
- Connect your H10 to the computer using UMS mode
- Make a backup of the H10_20GC.mi4 file in the System directory on
- Copy the H10_20GC.mi4 you downloaded to the System directory
- Download the latest CVS version of Rockbox from
- Unzip the zip file to the root (topmost) directory on your H10
(while in UMS mode).
- Eject the H10 and disconnect from USB and Rockbox will start up.
To put your H10 into UMS mode, get a pin and use it to push the reset
button. The reset button is inside a small hole between the hold button and
the remote control port and headphones socket. Pushing this button will
fully power your H10 off. Now, connnect the H10 to your computer. Hold the O
button, which is on the front of the player to the right and slightly above
the scroll pad. While holding O, turn the H10 on with the power button.
Continue holding O for a few seconds and it will start up in UMS mode. If it
worked correctly, your H10 should appear as a normal drive on your computer.
I don't know anything about getting voice support working as I have never
used it. Maybe someone else on the list can help you with that.
