FS#5788 - Problem with Rockbox when Battery runs out completely
Opened by Prashant Singh Pawar (renegade) - Thursday, 10 August 2006, 09:32 GMT
I was using my iPod video's Apple firmware, and watching some mp4 videos, during this the battery of my ipod ran out completely, Apple's firmware gave me a warning and shut itself down.
I use AC charger for charging ipods(I don't have computer at home, I Guess that's the whole point of using an ipod), but the problem was that as soon as I was putting it on charge, it started booting itself, and rockbox got loaded, and during loading it used enough battery that it ran out of battery again and restarted, this kept on happening in infinite loop.
I sometimes even tried to boot to apple's firmware, but same thing happened, it got restarted(and then again I had to choose between Rockbox and apple).
I don't really know what is the solution for this problem, finally I got my ipod to charge itself by connecting to a comp at office(I guess when comp is connected it uses less power).
I wanna know if anything can be done about it, maybe some lesser battery mode be made which can detect if AC charger is connected(it can be done, apple's firmware differentiate when AC charger is plugged in and when iPod is charging from USB).
Another thing, since I was facing this problem on Apple's firmware also so I think some Apple-only user must have posted a similar bug on Apple's site, if nobody gets that error that means its only there when you install rockbox with Apple.

Reason for closing: Not a Bug
Additional comments about closing: This is a problem with Apple OS, not with Rockbox.
