just like the thread http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php?topic=9282.0 and since bagder hasn't post a flyspray entry yet I'll start one
We own two e250s and I installed rockbox on them without any problems way back when rockboy wasn't even configured for them.
One of them was ruined by my own hand (lesson learned), but still functions. Today (3-23-07) I bought an e260 to replace it. And installed rockbox using the Sansapatcher this of course installed the new bootloader. On startup the were these random colored lines at the top of the screen,first two or three horizonal lines, in RB and the OF.
At first I blamed the new bootloader, so in turn uninstalled it using Sansapatcher (this cured the problem) and installed the old bootloader from way back when, still the same result.
I can be sure that this is the bootloaders doing because I reinstalled the OF ver 1.02.15 and the problem is gone.(not a hardware issue)
I searched flyspray and I can't find anything similar so I created this topic.
If anyone wants additional information post back and I'll be happy to help.
I'll even volunteer to be the guinea pig for this guys, if no one else has a e260 to try promising new bootloader code on.
