FS#12658 - Sansa Fuze v2 / AMSv2 soft freezing or crashing
Not sure how long this chronic bug has gone on but at least before the dubious move to git from subversion. I have had trouble on my V2s with freezing (appears like they are loading in the middle of a song but nothing is happening and you can't do anything) while playing and recently freezing when adding tracks to a playlist. I can take the microSD/transflash card out and stick it into a V1 Fuze and there is no problem, it will play forever and never crash. The V2s will crash minutes after playing, sometimes a track will finish, sometimes the same track will get stuck, one time it happened less than a second after beginning to play. No white screen of death, just a soft freeze and a blinking loading indicator. If you fiddle with it it will stop blinking and become utterly unresponsive. Have tried formatting cards, etc. V1 players work fine, V2 players are now junk under this firmware.
I don't know exactly how long this problem has been going on but it has been getting worse. Before the 30,000th SVN release, perhaps somewhere around 28000, I would be getting crashes occasionally with the V2s but nothing like this. My v2 players will unconditionally crash now after a short time. Rockbox is unusable for me on my V2 Fuze players. A lot of digging may be necessary to get to the bottom of this problem because I think it is buried under a lot of newer modifications.
I will not submit any sample music files (I know you guys always ask), this is problem exclusive to AMSv2 and I am sure by now that some Rockbox developers are aware of some issues that could be attributed to this sort of problem.
This task depends upon
