Difference: SonyNWZE360Port (r5 vs. r4)
You can find prebuilt version of Rockbox (development version) here: nwze360.zip. Unpack it at the root of the device, it should create a
The bootloader comes with a number of features which allow to recover from potential problematic situations. To boot rockbox, press play/pause for one second
The bootloader can either boot rockbox or the OF. By default it will boot rockbox. The To bootloader will boot the OF if OF, press any back key other than power is hold while for one second. powering up. This works independently from the power source. For example, press the play/pause button for several seconds to boot to the OF (from a power down state).
There is no firmware upgrade available for this player so one has to extract it from the device. Since this procedure is not implemented in RockboxUtility, it has to be done manually. Alternatively, I uploaded a copy of it here: firmware.sb.
You will need the libsgutils2-dev package. Go into
The bootloader can be built using three different methods. The recommend one is the automatic method using RockboxUtility. The semi-automatic method requires a working cross-compiler and a copy of the Rockbox source code.
I prebuild a complete bootloader image out of version 1.0.0 of the OF. It can be found here: firmware.sb. Download it, rename it to
This method requires the following things:
First you need to compile the bootloader, to do this follow the instructions from HowToCompile and when running the configure script, select the sony NWZ-E360 and bootloader build. After the build, you should get a
Then you need to build the mkimxboot tool in
Finally, you need to run the tool with the correct parameters. Assuming you are in
You should replace
Finally, plug your Sony NWZ-E360 and put the
Of course, to run rockbox, you will also need to do a normal build of rockbox and put rockbox on your device (see HowToCompile but this time to a normal Sony NWZ-E360 build and go until the 6. Install step). Alternatively, you can download the current build here: http://build.rockbox.org/data/rockbox-nwze360.zip
If you want to boot to the OF, press any key other than power on boot.
If for any reason your device doesn't work anymore (doesn't boot, stuck in the bootloader and even the OF doesn't work or if a firmware upgrade failed). You might need to recover your device. You should not attempt this without an advice from someone knowledgeable. The point of the recovery procedure is too reinstall the OF and will remove any trace of the rockbox bootloader.
