Difference: PluginKeybox (r5 vs. r4)
This plugin stores passwords and other sensitive information encrypted behind a master password.
Additional This plugin stores passwords and other sensitive information about the encryption algorithm; encrypted behind a master password. You can assign a title, an name (or username) and a password to each entry.
If you forget the master password, the data is permanently lost (unless you break the encryption with a tool external to Rockbox. Don't ask for help on doing this.). You can use the keybox again by reseting it (see "Resetting keybox" section), which will delete all the data and ask you to input a new master password.
Additional information about the encryption algorithm:
The plugin can be found under
If this is the first time you're using the keybox, selecting Enter Keybox will bring a text input screen where you can enter the new master password. If it is not the first time you're using the plugin, then this option will prompt you to type the master password that has been previously set.
In case you forgot the master password, or someone used the plugin before (and doesn't want to use it again anymore, obviously), see "Resetting keybox" for information on how to reset the keybox to its defaults.
When you're done, you will see an empty screen. Head over to "Adding an entry" section to start adding entries.
To start adding entries, press and hold the action key for your player (usually Select). A menu will appear; select
Enter the title for the entry. This title will be shown on the list of entries of the keybox. Next, it asks for the "name". This name can be whatever you want to display along with the password when you select the entry on the entries list. The most obvious use of this field is to hold the username for your login combination ;). Finally, enter the password. It will be shown along with the "name" when you select the "title" of your entry on the list.
You will now see one more option on the entry list screen (the one that was blank before you added any entry). You can repeat these steps for each entry you want to add.
On the list of entries, select the entry you want to see. A splash will show the "name" for the entry and, after a space, the "password". The splash will disappear after you press a key (or move your finger on the clickwheel if your player has one).
On the list of entries, move the selector to the entry you want to edit. Press and hold the Select key. A menu will appear.
On the list of entries, move the selector to the entry you want to delete. Press and hold the Select key. A menu will appear.
Reset the keybox if you forgot the master password and want to use the Keybox again, or want to delete all the entries.
To reset the Keybox, launch the plugin. Select
The Keybox is now as new. Follow the instructions on "Usage of keybox - Preparing the Keybox for use for the first time" to use Keybox again.
