Subject: Iriver h320 questions
I will try and be as specific as possible. Hopefully someone will have some
suggestions. I have read the Rockbox Manual. I downloaded rockbox, unzipped
it to the Iriver h320, downloaded the European firmware 1.29,
** How come you copied the European firmware?
I have the iRiver 120, and I used the English.
Maybe it's okay, but I did not do mine that way.
.hex file to the hd of the Iriver, got sighted assistance to update the
firmware. It updated, and powered down. I plugged the unit into my computer,
and I copied the .hex file that I had patched to the hard drive. The other
.hex file was still there and it overwrote that file. Now when I turn the
Iriver on, it comes on for a couple seconds and shuts off. I am not able to
flash the patched firmware. Does anyone have any suggestions?
** I'm not sure about the steps above, but with my H120, I copy the HEX file
from the iRiver, and run the patcher on it, seems like it needs to be done
twice, as the first time it gives it as an failure.
Then, keeping a copy of the original unpatched HEX file, I put the patched
one on the iRiver, in the root.
Then you boot the iRiver, and use sighted assistance to move through the
iRiver's menus to "flash firmware" and it is done.
It's been about a year since I have done this, but it seems like that is the
I actually did mine without sighted assistance, as there was once a message
sent in with the number of down arrows to take in the iRiver's menus to do
Once you have flashed it, you will only need to update the .RockBox folder,
and the accompanying voice file when you wish to.
