Subject: Ladies and gentlemen, we have sound on the Sansa Connect!

Ladies and gentlemen, we have sound on the Sansa Connect!

The Sansa Connect played its first song in the morning of 2011-11-13,
the song played was Exlibris - W Objęciach Kruka.

The code being run on DSP side of controller is the same as used in m:robe 500.
The biggest obstacle is GPG signature verification on every boot. The
Original Firmware's bootloader is written on hardware write-protected
flash. To overwrite bootloader with patched version which skips check
it is required to do hardware hack. No software-only method to run
unsigned code has been authored as of yet.

Kind regards,
Tomasz
