00:21:57midkvery cool
00:22:15midkbut, what do you mean by beeping? it outputs a beep noise through the headphones?

02:03:07[IDC]DragonStudio10: this works
02:03:14midkyour compatibility list is the very first line on the page.
02:07:30[IDC]Dragonamiconn: wrong info, the direction of the MAS buffer is fixed :-(

09:48:52[IDC]Dragonthe internal chip is also an MMC
09:51:06BagderZagor: I think perhaps offerig only the last day's build on the daily-build page, then we have one page for each binary for the last 5-6 days

10:47:32ZagorLinusN: making the daily build page smaller
10:47:38ZagorBagder: ah
10:47:52LinusNi see
10:48:11ZagorLinusN, Bagder: any objections to replacing the old 2.96 native gcc on labb?
10:48:40BagderZagor: I already have a 3.4 installed
10:48:48Bagder /usr/local/gcc34/bin
10:49:28Zagori'm updating binutils anyway
10:50:12Bagderconsider the sh-elf upgrade too
10:50:30Zagoryeah that's why i need to upgrade binutils :)
10:54:19SmoothOperatorwill MP3 ever die away in favour of these DRM enabled WMAs, AACs ATRAC3s and what not?
10:55:05dwihnoIn their DRMs ;)
10:55:15dwihnodreams. get it? hahaha :)
10:55:26SmoothOperatorwell its what the record companies want
10:55:30SmoothOperatordrm enabled players
10:55:35SmoothOperatorno more simple dragging and droppin
10:55:51Bagderok, try now
10:56:28Bagdera bit simplistic still, but it is fewer links now
10:57:05dwihnoBagder: Imho, there should be small images of the units :)
10:57:12SmoothOperatorIn the UK its dangerous to wear Ipod headphones
10:57:39LinusNBagder: i like it
10:57:51dwihnoSmoothOperator: How come?
10:57:56Zagorweird, i can't get cross-gcc 3.4.2 to build
10:58:12Bagderdwihno: yes, that's my plan as well
10:58:13SmoothOperatorbecause wearing those ipod headphones marks you as an ipod owner and you will get beaten up for your ipod

11:01:45SmoothOperatorthe ipod cant be a piece of junk if everybody wants one
11:02:04Zagorpeople buy whatever is marketed. the ipod is marketed, ergo people buy the ipod
11:02:23SmoothOperatorso if the archos had the same publicity would it sell the same way?
11:02:39Zagorno they are not comparable
11:02:48SmoothOperatorboth HD MP3 players
11:03:19Zagorarchos is a 2.5" player (100gig), ipod is an 1.8" player. not the same thing.
11:03:25SmoothOperatoranyway guys i've got to go to work
11:03:55Zagormost people prefer the smaller type
11:04:09 Quit SmoothOperator ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
11:07:26Zagorcan't find any cheap used iHPs
11:07:43Zagorthe used cost about the same as the new, since people are buying them new at expensive places...
11:08:10[av]baniheh, ihp is hefty enough it could run uclinux
11:08:16[av]baniwithout problems
11:08:28[av]baniquite unlike trying to shoehorn it into archos
11:09:04[av]banijust about any audio format should be doable, and i dont know why iriver finds it so hard to make gapless mp3
11:09:05Zagoryeah, but theres not much point in running linux on it
11:09:28[av]baniim guessing they bought 3rd party binaries and were only able to glue them together
11:09:36[av]banithey have no idea how the internals work or dont have the source or something
11:09:49Bagderwith Linux you'd get a whole lot of tools not made to run on a portable harddisk player
11:09:52*dwihno bought his archos thanks to Zag, Bag and Linus
11:10:05Zagorgapless mp3 is difficult because mp3 doesn't actually support it
11:10:09[av]baninot much point yeah, but itd be cool :)
11:10:15[av]baniworlds smallest linux :)
11:10:39Zagorso you need to perform various hacks to workaround a limitation in the format
11:10:43[av]banizagor yeah, but there are good mp3 implementations which do a reasonably good job at cut+paste
11:11:11[av]banithe rio does it, so its possible
11:11:20Bagderdwihno: check the daily build page now
11:11:21Zagoryeah, so I've been told
11:11:41[av]banianyone know if the ihp actually runs at 140mhz?
11:11:56[av]banithe coldfire part is clocked at 140, but does the iriver run it that fast
11:12:03[av]baniseems awfully fast for a portable
11:12:04Zagordunno yet
11:12:08 Join [IDC]Dragon [0] (
11:12:16[av]baniseems to me that would eat a lot of power
11:12:19Zagorwell you need a bit of juice to decode ogg and mp3
11:12:28Zagornot to mention encode
11:12:35[av]baninot really, the ipod can just do ogg in software
11:12:41[av]baniand its not a screamer
11:12:49[av]banicourse they use integerized ogg, but still
11:13:20Zagoripod is a dual arm-7, not the same thing
11:13:27Zagoralso it doesn't encode ogg, does it?
11:13:47Zagorreal-time, i mean
11:14:07[av]baniooh, haha
11:14:15[av]banicoldfire is 68k core, cool
11:14:21[av]banii grew up on 68k asm ;)
11:14:22dwihnoBagder: Looks great! A small note though... I keep a 1600x1200 resolution... Are you sure 1024 width persons will see it?
11:14:31dwihnoIt's a bit wide
11:14:48[av]banino, but the iriver doesnt encode ogg either ;)
11:14:51BagderI could split it in two lines
11:15:11Zagordon't. it works fine this way.
11:15:17dwihnoPerhaps V2 units on the second line?
11:15:38Bagderit'll need to be split if we get ondio in there
11:15:39Zagor[av]bani: well does the ipod encode mp3 then?
11:15:51dwihnoa <br /> after the images perhaps?
11:16:08[av]banii dont think the ipod does encoding at all
11:16:18Bagderdwihno: ah, right
11:16:31Zagordwihno: no need, browsers wrap it anyway. try it.
11:16:53Zagor[av]bani: that's what i thought too. hence it doesn't need as much power.
11:16:55dwihnoZagor: you're so right
11:17:00LinusNthe iriver has an 11.2896MHz oscillator, and uses an internal PLL to generate the CPU clock
11:17:26LinusNand i'm pretty sure that the clock can be adjusted in real time
11:17:28[av]baniprogrammable pll?
11:17:52[av]banihm, wonder if the coldfire tolerates realtime freq changes
11:17:54LinusNso we can run on a lower frequency for playback, and boost it for encoding
11:18:09Zagoryes, i would expect the clock to be adjusted to not waste cycles/power
11:19:10[av]bani8k icache, thats huge for an embedded device

11:20:11LinusNthere is an internal pll, yes
11:20:20LinusNand it can be reprogrammed in real-time
11:20:34LinusNyou enter the "pll bypass mode" while doing it
11:20:44LinusNrunning directly from the oscillator
11:21:00LinusNthen you switch back after reprogramming the pll

11:21:15[av]baniah, so keeps it running albeit slowly :)
11:21:33[av]banithats not counting the sdram
11:22:01LinusNthe sdram is not clocked from the pll
11:22:02[av]banicourse theres unlimited storage on disk really
11:22:38[av]baniput a barebones kernel in flash, and put all the interesting app stuff on disk
11:22:50Zagorsram is faster, thus you want frequently used code there. on archos we just have a few k sram
11:23:02[av]baniso you dont have to worry about torching your ihp with upgrades
11:23:15[av]banianyone know whats up with the emu?
11:23:16Zagorthat makes it slow. we'll flash everything.
11:23:31Zagorduring development, disk loading is better
11:23:47[av]baniwell, if the feature set outgrows flash
11:24:07[av]banipeople are asking for sid etc :)
11:24:14Zagorthen we'll solve it somehow. that will take quite a while though... :)
11:24:24[av]baniso you can just store plugins on disk
11:24:31Zagorwe do that today, yes
11:24:57[av]baniiriver is going to be a huge step up from the constraints you had :)
11:25:16[av]banihuge flash, fast cpu with big caches and ram
11:25:25[av]baniand all sorts of on cpu goodies
11:25:25Zagorin terms of ram and flash, yes. but the feature set is pretty much the same.
11:26:09LinusNah, i was wrong, the sdram clock seems to be derived from the pll :-(
11:26:31ZagorLinusN: well that's bad for performance but good for power :)
11:27:05[av]baniooh, heh
11:27:20[av]banisdram may not tolerate wild speed changes

13:17:39*dwihno thinks how you guys must be during christmas when it comes to opening presents
13:18:07[IDC]Dragonthey must have screws
13:18:09LinusN[IDC]Dragon: yeah, that's bad in a sense
13:20:42*Zagor cheers for [IDC]Dragons ondio project :)
13:20:57dwihnoMe too!
13:20:58Lynx_[IDC]Dragon: i have a notion your ondio project may finish earlier tho ;-)
13:21:01dwihnoHooray for Jörg!
13:21:07[IDC]Dragonsob, thanks ...
13:21:39dwihnoNow get to work ;)
13:21:56[IDC]Dragonsir, yes sir
13:22:02dwihnoHere. Have a cookie.
13:25:28dwihnoSwedish guys, you know how the semesterersättning works?
13:26:49zeekoedwihno: is that about school?
13:26:56zeekoedwihno: i might have the same thing
13:27:19zeekoeuntil last year it was 42 points, 42 weeks, 3 trimesters
13:27:56LinusNit looks like the MAD decoder is a very good candidate for the iriver
13:28:22zeekoenow it's 60 ECTS (European CrediT System or so :P), 40 weeks, 2 semesters (2 weeks less school! :))
13:28:54LinusNencoding is a totally different beast
13:30:09zeekoeLinusN: for what i'm reading now, MAD seems to use 24 bits, dithered to 16
13:30:14zeekoewouldnt that be slow?
13:31:00dwihnozeekoe: njae, I'm working full time. I'm no student.
13:32:03zeekoedwihno: ok... i just read something about holiday pay or so... i was thinking of the wrong thing :)
13:32:05Lynx_do all of you core developers work in the software/electronics business?
13:32:32dwihnozeekoe: heh, ok
13:33:31[IDC]DragonI do
13:33:31LinusNthe left led is a charge indicator and the right one is a hdd indicator
13:33:49ZagorLynx_: yes
13:33:53[IDC]Dragonis the right one red?
13:34:37LinusNdon't know
13:34:56[IDC]Dragonelse the platform is incompatible
13:35:15zeekoenot for the (color) blind people
13:35:25zeekoethey can still use it
13:39:30ashridahLinusN: yes, the HDD light is red
13:39:40ashridahthe charging light is green
13:39:46*ashridah looks at his just to his right
13:40:17LinusNso it can be RLD compatible :-)
13:40:30LinusN"RLD inside"
13:40:34zeekoebut it doesnt have a hard disk, has it?
13:40:47ashridahzeekoe: the H series? yes it does.
13:40:49LinusNRed LED Death, a "famous" rockbox hard disk problem
13:41:04zeekoeor are you talking about the iRiver now?
13:41:17dwihno\o/ RLD compatibility \o/
13:41:17ashridahzeekoe: i am
13:41:25ashridahred led death?
13:41:32ashridahis there an entertaining backstory to this?
13:41:32zeekoeooooh... i was thinking about the ondio
13:41:42*Zagor is removing all quotes from the wiki, to end the complaints
13:42:01zeekoe1) turn on your archos, hd spins up 2) shake it a bit 3) you get the red light of death
13:42:18ashridahzeekoe: nice.
13:42:32ashridahzeekoe: that said, iriver make flash and cd-based players.
13:42:34LinusN"a bit"
13:42:44LinusNi have to shake it like hell to get rld
13:43:06ashridahmy player takes longer to boot if i'm moving about while it's booting, but that's about it
13:43:37ashridahthe drive probably takes longer to stabilise.
13:44:04LinusNit's the same on most players, including archos
13:44:04zeekoewhen i put the v1 recorder in my pocket, when starting to drive away with my bike, i really have to be careful the first few seconds (when the hd spins) or a RLD will appear
13:44:10ashridahthe original unit i had had a weird bug when it got warm from use or being in a pocket, although i got it replaced the moment i found out how to reproduce it
13:44:18LinusNthe rld problem applies to only a few hard disk models
13:44:55zeekoelike hitachi dk23da-20...? :S
13:45:39dwihnoI got a hitachi disk as well
13:46:01LinusNzeekoe: that one, yes
13:46:02dwihnoAnd I never got the RLD using the original IBM disk
13:46:17ashridahthe drive in my iriver is a toshiba MK4004GAH
13:50:00amiconnzeekoe: (MAD using 24 bits): Of course this is slower than 16bits, but still should be possible on 140 MHz Coldfire in realtime. It is possible in realtime on 68060 with 50 MHz
13:50:30ashridahzeekoe: yeah.
13:51:05LinusNmad should be possible, especially if we make use of the MAC
13:53:06dwihnoToo many abbreviations! %/
13:53:42LinusN?Too many abbrev error: -493
13:54:29Zagoranyone looked at MAD before (i.e. anyone volunteering?)
13:55:06Zagorthat's one thing we can start with right away, even before we can run anything on the target
13:55:13Zagorsame with ogg (tremor)
13:55:23dwihnoMAC is ... ?
13:56:33dwihnoa DAC but manually instead of digitally?
13:57:01ZagorMultiply And Accumulate, it's a part of the processor
14:00:25[IDC]DragonI very briefly worked with MAD
14:00:41[IDC]Dragonbut I'm booked
14:01:01 Join Nire-work [0] (~Nire-work@
14:01:10zeekoe[IDC]Dragon: you should look at the ondio first, and better charging code :)
14:01:16Nire-workhey everyone
14:01:29Nire-workjust wanted to say thanks for taking on the iRiver port !!
14:01:37Nire-workI'm very excited about this
14:01:47ZagorNire-work: have you worked with MAD or Tremor? ;)
14:04:11[IDC]Dragonzeekoe: I didn't do that charging code
14:05:33LinusNno, but you should fix it :-)
14:05:51LinusNonly germans are allowed to work on the charging code
14:06:41zeekoe[IDC]Dragon: i recall you once speaking of a redo of the charging code
14:06:47LinusNwe all do
14:06:58zeekoe[IDC]Dragon: may be me though, being weird
14:07:04LinusNin the terms of "someone should fix this"
14:08:51zeekoenot that i need it... right now... although i just bought some stuff to finally complete my charger
14:09:18zeekoea 7805 plus 5.1V zener should be able to make 10V, doesn't it?
14:09:38zeekoeor 10.1V
14:11:04amiconnzeekoe: Or just use a 7810
14:11:12zeekoecouldnt get one
14:11:21zeekoe7809 were sold out too
14:12:00zeekoei think i'll just try, if it doesnt work i blow up about 25 eurocents
14:13:20[IDC]DragonLinusN, zeekoe: yes, the charging is something I'm at least annoyed by
14:13:54[IDC]DragonI sortof have it on my list
14:14:05[IDC]Dragonlacking the motivation
14:14:14zeekoelol... i know that
14:14:23zeekoeif i could only buy motivation :P
14:16:54amiconnLinusN: r u there?
14:18:40amiconnWould you mind if I extend screen_dump() to take a parameter? (The filename it should use; if you hand it a NULL pointer, it would still compose the filename as it currently does)
14:19:14amiconnThen this can be put into the plugin api, for use by e.g. etchasketch
14:19:33zeekoewhee :)
14:21:31LinusNamiconn: good idea
14:22:08amiconnzeekoe: The inverse function (bmp loading) is on it's way too...
14:22:37[IDC]Dragonbut not a generic bmp load, I hope
14:22:46amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Why not?
14:22:56[IDC]Dragonin the core?
14:23:02amiconnNo, as a plugin lib
14:23:22[IDC]Dragonbmp can have so many formats
14:24:07amiconnWell, it won't support all formats, only uncompressed one. I'll try to get it supporting 1/4/8/24 bits depth though
14:24:08[IDC]Dragonbitmap, palette, true color, reverse or forward lines, even compression
14:26:40Zagorbmp is a lovely format...
14:27:23amiconnImho bmp is much easier than jpeg. I tried to understand that idct stuff...
14:27:37Zagortiff! :)

14:54:12Zagorno. i failed building it for some reason
14:54:23Bagderdid the newlib trick?

15:07:27ashridahah, so they weren't taken by you? fair enough
15:07:49LinusNi just tested the iriver
15:07:58LinusNthe remote is übercool
15:08:27ashridahLinusN: it is handy, yes. works in the 3xx series, although the 3xx only comes with a remote keypad, you can order them separately
15:08:29LinusNbut the ui gets on my nerves
15:08:51ashridahgetting used to the keys takes a bit
15:09:01ashridahi can use it unconciously now
15:09:34LinusNjust that any false keypress takes you back to the playing screen annoys the hell out of me
15:10:58midktheir menu system isn't too good
15:11:14midkit's like.. up = back, down = "enter", right = down, left = up, no?
15:11:21[IDC]Dragonamiconn: the decramble tool doesn't need to verify the "device ID", for us it's ok if it just descrambles
15:11:38[IDC]Dragonusing the -fm or -v2 option will do
15:11:41ashridahmidk: uh. no
15:12:12midkoh, good.. i had (have) an ifp-395t.. it's funky like that
15:13:03ashridahmidk: the nav stick is 'left = up directory' 'right = into directory/play file' 'up = go up an entry' 'down = go down an entry'
15:13:15ashridahalthough the remote's a little more fiddly
15:13:50midki was talking about the menus.. i wasn't sure if they'd extended the stupidity to the browser too ;)
15:14:04midkifp-395t works like that in the browser, yeah
15:14:11midkbut the menu is really odd
15:14:52ashridahthe menu doesn't quite work the same. you have to click the nav stick to enter an item, but left still pulls you back up a level in the menu.
15:15:48midkmhm, that's better than the ifp series then
15:17:10ashridahisn't the ifp a lot more compact?
15:17:28midkyes, flash player..
15:19:30Zagorah, found my mistake with crossgcc. 3.3.4 compiling now.

15:20:18 Join zeekoe [0] (
15:20:19Zagori didn't use a −−prefix where it could find the sh binutils
15:20:28midki've used an online h-1xx
15:20:42LinusNZagor: you should set the PATH
15:20:43midkit was a java app or something, can't remember where
15:20:47ashridahmidk: an online h-1xx?
15:20:51ZagorLinusN: that doesn't matter
15:20:53BagderI find the name "h1xx" funnily close to "haxx"
15:21:16LinusNtrue, you need both a prefix and a path
15:23:22Zagorbah, too early. now it claims to not find sh-elf-ar, even though it's in the path
15:24:01Bagderits funny how it always fail in different ways to different people
15:25:46LinusNyou often need to configure everything from scratch when you have made a mistake
15:26:09LinusNre-running configure again with different parameters is often not enough
15:26:21LinusNand i hope you did install binutils?
15:34:57Zagortrying a clean configure
15:51:37LinusNthe hdd led seems to be connected directly to the hdd
15:53:21dwihnothat sux
15:53:26dwihnolame solution
15:54:03Zagorlame for us, but not necessarily a lame solution if all you want is a hd led.
15:54:17Zagori hope the left one is controllable at least
15:54:31dwihnoWhat if you want to switch disk?
15:55:42Zagorwell i don't think the led is disk-specific. it just connects to the ata controller or something like that.
15:55:57Zagor(guessing wildly)
15:56:29dwihnoI need sleep.
15:56:31dwihnoThat's for sure
15:57:19LinusNwe'll see when i open it up
15:57:33[IDC]Dragonstill closed?
15:57:56[IDC]Dragonhow do you know about the LED connection then?
15:58:03Zagorstill the sh-elf-ar problem :(
15:58:13LinusNit updates the free space info when it leaves usb mode
15:58:27Zagordoes it flash in usb mode?
15:58:32LinusNZagor: do you use the same prefix for both binutils and gcc?
15:58:54LinusNZagor: no, you copy the file and then perform the flashing
15:59:28Zagorno i mean does the led flash when you modify the disk in usb mode
16:04:39LinusNyes, that's why i think it's connected to the hd
16:05:20Zagorthat's what I thought. and i agree.

16:50:12LinusNScion: wow
16:50:42LinusNScion: you should try the latest daily build
16:50:58Scionim using the latest build now
16:51:15zeekoehey, cool redesign of the daily build page
16:51:45Zagorzeekoe: our graphics artist bagder did that

16:52:09zeekoeand rombox in the builds... whooo
16:52:56Scionyea, only booted up to about 1/3 of the way and then froze up
16:53:00Scionthen turned off :p
16:53:18Scionill try put in the firmware again
16:53:21LinusNScion: which model do you have?
16:53:44zeekoejust wondering... does booting into the original archos firmware work correct?

16:53:52Scionoriginally 6gb? i think
16:54:25Scionzeekoe, yea it does
16:55:08zeekoelol, nice charging animation :-P
16:56:40Scionthe daily build freezes then turns off, the 2.2 build boots up correctly but i get the 'dir buffer' error message
16:56:54Scionis there any place i get ahold of build 2.1 for instance?
16:57:08LinusNScion: why would you want that?
16:57:51Scionjust to try, isnt there a 'bug' in the current builds that sets the max files to only 50?
16:58:06LinusNScion: did you do a complete install of the daily build, or did you just replace ajbrec.ajz?
16:58:11Scionjust replace
16:58:23LinusNthen i understand why it crashes

16:59:07LinusN(unless you know what you're doing)
16:59:42Scionfair enough
17:02:36LinusNthe 5249 coldfire has dedicated ATA interface logic builtin
17:03:04LinusNi guess the iriver uses it, so we won't have to figure out how it is used

17:08:20Zagorannoying that we haven't found out the lcd controller yet
17:11:26[IDC]Dragonis it an external controller?
17:13:26Zagormost likely chip-on-glass. it usually is
17:13:50[IDC]Dragonthe line drivers at least, yes
17:14:09[IDC]Dragonthe LCD can be "intelligent", or may need to be scanned
17:17:43Zagori haven't seen any controller chip, so I think it's on the glass too
17:21:46[IDC]Dragonthe CPU might have an LCD controller, automatically reading a frame buffer and pumping the scan data to the dumb LCD
17:22:19[IDC]Dragonor, the LCD contains that buffer and has a command interface
17:22:35Zagoryes but there is no lcd in the block diagram:

22:43:21D0gbertI've managed to dump a RAM image with a modified version of the coldfire emulator
22:43:46D0gbertthe firmware consists out of roughly two parts

22:57:52D0gbert describes the memory mapping
22:58:23D0gberteven though the 'unknown' ram isn't really there and was just a way to ensure that the emulation of the motorola thing was working correctly

23:18:01Zagorwhich? there are quite a few... :)
23:18:29elinenbetrace the schematics... the board?
23:18:56Zagorah, no. we just bought a player today.
23:19:06Zagorafaik nobody else has done it either
23:19:33elinenbehow many players does the devteam have?
23:19:39Zagorone so far
23:19:45elinenbeI will have to write a game for it :)
23:19:50elinenbethat's about all I can do.
23:19:51JoeBornhow long will it take you to trace the schematics?

23:22:36LinusNelinenbe: check out the wiki
23:23:13Zagorhehe, not really. it's not a revolutionary step in hardware, more evolutionary. nothing really new, hardware wise. just more space and speed.
23:23:30elinenbeLinus.. I perused it.... it's starting to actually look usable!
23:23:53elinenbeZagor: although the hard drive space is much less (well, can be less) then let's say an 80 or 100 gb archos...
23:23:53LinusNthis board is harder to trace than the jukebox, since they use BGA packages :-(
23:24:06Zagorelinenbe: exactly. so not everything is better.
23:24:33elinenbethe iriver 3xx series is kind of a piece of shit compared to this 1xx series.
23:24:42Zagorelinenbe: really? why?
23:24:52elinenbeless battery life, thicker, worse remote.
23:25:05elinenbeI guess you can use it as a usb host, but that is not something i would do oftern.
23:25:12Zagori didn't know. i thought they were basically the same.
23:25:15Zagorexcept for the display
23:25:34Zagor...and better buttons
23:25:35elinenbehas dogbert done a good deal with the iriver?
23:26:08elinenbeZagor: which has better buttons?
23:26:15elinenbethe 3xx or 1xx?
23:26:45Zagor3xx, at least by the look of it. i don't like the joystick type navigation button on 1xx.
23:27:16elinenbehas anyone gotten a LCD light to blink yet? That was such an exciting time for rockbox.
23:27:19Zagorbut i have never tested a 3xx, so i don't really know
23:27:29lImbusZagor, buttons: yeah, makes some games impossible
23:27:34elinenbenow 3 years later it will all happen again... you guys are really talented!
23:27:42Zagorelinenbe: we haven't run a single instruction yet. it's a bit harder than on the archos.
23:28:09elinenbeyeah, it just doesn't pull the firmware off the disk...

23:42:46Zagorgosh, the Tremor API uses 'FILE*'. not very embedded-friendly...
23:43:56LinusNi guess we'll have to rely a lot more on disassembling the original firmware this time...
23:44:31Zagoryeah, maybe
23:45:25LinusNi think we can assume that it is a lot like the reference design as well
