RE: installing rockbox onto an IAudio x5

Ok. A few things.

First, you'll also need a voice file in order to get rockbox to actually
talk. I recommend Not getting the eloquence fast speaking one, as it only
speaks about half the options. There's a link to the voice files page from
the online manual.

when you download the voice file, you will need to unzip it and you'll see a
file called english.voice. Place that on the IAudio in the .rockbox/langs
directory.

Second. I believe you need the x5fw.bin file as the bootloader, not the
x5vfw.bin one.

Third. when installing the bootloader. Make sure you turn the unit off
before you unplug the USB cable. Otherwise, unplugging the cable will give
the impression that the unit is turning off on it's own, but from hard
experience I can tell you that's not the case. Hehe. You can keep the
rockbox build on there that you already have, so do this. Put the voice file
in. Find the x5fw.bin bootloader and copy it into the firmware directory.
turn off the unit. Unplug the usb cable. Plug in the chargr and give it a
couple of minutes, you should hear the hard drive spin up and down a time or
two. Now, unplug the charger, plug in your headset, turn the unit on and you
should hear speech. If not, try pressing the down arrow on the joystick a
couple of times.

Hi I followed the below instructions but, I have had no luck getting rockbox
to work.
The bootloader file I am using is called x5v_fw.bin
Is there something else I need to do?

List of 6 items
. Download the bootloader binary on the bottom of this page
. Copy it to the FIRMWARE directory on your X5/M5
. Turn the X5/M5 off, remove the USB cable and insert the charger. The X5/M5
will automatically upgrade the flash with the Rockbox bootloader
. Proceed with installing the X5/M5 version of Rockbox from the current
build page. That is, download the x5/m5 build from
http://build.rockbox.org/,
and unzip the contents of that to the root of your player.
. If you are installing Rockbox for the first time, or reinstalling after
removing the .rockbox directory it is recommended you install the fonts
package
from
http://download.rockbox.org/daily/fonts/rockbox-fonts.zip.
. Rockbox is now installed.
list end
