Difference: BootloaderRelease (r2 vs. r1)

-- MarcinBukat - 2010-10-26

Targets which are considered 'stable' and 'unstable' have to have officially released bootloaders. Below are simple steps how to release new official bootloader:

  • Tag the svn revision you want to use for bootloader release:
       svn copy svn://svn.rockbox.org/rockbox/trunk \
                svn://svn.rockbox.org/rockbox/tags/bootloader_e200_v2 \
                -m 'Tag release v2 of the Sansa E200 bootloader and sansapatcher'
  • Compile versioned binary
       make VERSION=x.y

NOTE this command doesn't work with current svn starting from r26320. The proposed fix is in FS#11697.

  • Send binary to one of the swedes and ask to put it on download server
