#rockbox log for 2007-02-12

00:00:22AlbrightIs there a trick to installing WPS screens? I dragged the file and its folder into /.rockbox/wps/ but it's not showing up in Rockbox's theme chooser.
00:00:41peturtheme <−−> wps
00:00:49LloreanAlbright: Themes and WPSes are not the same thing
00:00:55peturinstall the complete theme or choose a wps ;)
00:01:33DataGhosthey linuxstb
00:01:40DataGhostyou can shoot me in the foot
00:01:43DataGhost.config: #define DRAM_SIZE 0x02000000
00:01:46linuxstb_I think plugin actions are possible, they just need more thought. e.g. like core Rockbox, you need different action contexts for different screens in the plugin. So we'll end up with lots of contexts, but I think it will make plugins easier to write and more consistent.
00:02:13linuxstb_I was just wondering if it was in the .config file...
00:02:24DataGhostI figured out through reading the source, heh
00:02:53DataGhostit doesn't work, though
00:04:19pixelmalinuxstb: I think you'll end up with a lot of exceptions in the c-file and will have to double check between c-file and pluginlib_actions
00:04:52Mikachumost plugins will be able to use some default stuff, but some will need exceptions
00:05:00Mikachustuff like sudoku and sokoban should be fine
00:05:06linuxstb_What kind of exceptions are you talking about?
00:05:39Mikachuwell, it depens on if you call a buttonmap only one plugin uses an exception
00:06:25pixelmalinuxstb: there already is one exception for the Ondio in bubbles.c although there are only two plugins moved

00:11:16linuxstb_pixelma: That's what I mean about needing lots of action contexts. I don't think it's a problem to have contexts specifically for one plugin.

00:15:18AlbrightI'll double check though.

00:17:02AlbrightYes, fonts are in there.

00:22:34JdGordonlinuxstb: well thats easily fixed if its a big problem....

00:37:24linuxstb_I don;'t know if it's related (I don't use the database), but Mac OS X will put files called (IIRC) ._trackname.mp3 next to trackname.mp3 - maybe the database indexes them.

00:42:18AlbrightBy the way, I tried Rockbox with my NewerTech TRAFFICJamz FM transmitter last night and it worked perfectly.
00:42:36AlbrightNot sure if that's Rockbox's "fault" that it worked, but if so, awesome.

01:03:55RasmusseNmarkun: I would think so
01:04:05linuxstbI wonder if it's a Linux bug, or Rockbox... If I mount my ipod with "-t msdos" (i.e. only showing the shortnames), then the files appear with different (correct) filesizes. Mounting it with "-t vfat", I get the same size for both files.
01:04:09RasmusseNjdGordon sugar is sweet but your not
01:04:30markunRasmusseN: I think it would be a long while before rockbox could use the Zune hardware to it's full potential
01:05:30JdGordonlinuxstb did you make the theme the 2nd time or the first time?
01:05:48scorchehmph...anyone have any guesses why the VMware image jumped 165 megs after running and re arranging a few files so it would be concurrent with that script in the future?
01:06:22linuxstbIt still has the gcc source somewhere?
01:06:31RasmusseNmarkun: I've heard the zune is a rebranded Gigabeats which rockbox has been actively developing a port for.
01:06:34linuxstbJdGordon: The theme was the second file I wrote.
01:06:45scorchei deleted it from /root
01:06:54linuxstbRasmusseN: Rockbox runs on different gigabeats to the one similar to the Zune.
01:07:25linuxstbThe S series is similar to the Zune, Rockbox runs on the F and X series.
01:07:27safetydanRasmusseN, plus the parts that make the Zune unique (the WiFi adapter) would take a lot of work to get going in Rockbox
01:07:28markunRasmusseN: ah yes, I've heard about the Gigabeat port :)
01:07:53RasmusseNdon't you think it would be worth it to work on the Zune though?
01:08:37LloreanWorth what?
01:08:54RasmusseNworth the work for porting the sunze
01:09:11safetydanApart from WiFi, what's special about the Zune?

01:09:25LloreanWouldn't it be more likely worth it for someone who already has a zune, and wants a Rockbox player, than for people who have one or more Rockbox players that suit their needs well enough?
01:09:31RasmusseNthe casing is better than the ipod it's stronger
01:09:44RasmusseNthe portrait screen
01:09:46safetydanRasmussen, that's hardly unique to the Zune

01:13:12linuxstb_And the next ipod is likely to be equally as hard to hack as the latest Nano, so don't hold your breath.
01:13:15RasmusseNbut the ipod is soo popular so fadish it's annoying
01:13:30RasmusseNwhy do you need to hack the ipod anyways though?
01:14:00safetydandear lord... is the Zune CPU really running at greaer than 500 MHz?
01:14:17linuxstb_RasmusseN: You're in #rockbox...
01:14:21linuxstb_That's what we do.
01:14:44RasmusseNso does rockbox support FLAC?
01:14:45markunsafetydan: yes
01:14:52safetydanRasmusseN, yes
01:15:02RasmusseNthat's nice but battery life is greatly shortened
01:15:08RasmusseNsince the buffer is too small
01:15:15markunsafetydan: btw, it has a floating point 'vector' unit
01:15:39safetydanmarkun, I noticed that qualifier while looking at the specs of the CPU.
01:15:49linuxstb_RasmusseN: Yes, but FLAC is also very efficient in terms of CPU usage, so it's not that bad.
01:15:50LloreanRasmusseN: But FLACs are computationally simpler to decode, so it balances out to an extent.
01:16:05markunand some hardware support for video de- and encoding, but I don't know exactly how easy that is to use
01:16:05RasmusseNso is it easier than ALAC?
01:16:42RasmusseNis it even worth using lossless on a portable setup anyways?
01:16:42linuxstb_In theory, slightly easier. In practice, Rockbox's FLAC decoder is much more optimised than its ALAC decoder.
01:17:05RasmusseNi c
01:17:19safetydanRasmusseN, in general, no it's not worth using lossless on a portable unit.
01:17:24RasmusseNi c
01:17:38RasmusseNi've seen some pretty crazy portable setups though
01:18:34RasmusseNipods with the imod and a portable amp plus a nice pair of IEM
01:19:15LloreanEven then, properly encoded lossy files should be more than good enough, barring artifacts.
01:19:19linuxstb_safetydan: It depends on your reasons. For me, I use FLAC because it's easier not to have to transcode, and I can live with the reduced capacity and battery life.
01:19:48LloreanThat's the same reason I use FLAC.
01:20:17LloreanThe 'I'm lazy, and only use my MP3 player for 6 hours or less between having access to somewhere I can charge' excuse
01:20:28RasmusseNthat would be tight if the zune could receive music from your computer lets say wirelessly
01:20:39 Quit rotator ("z")
01:21:22RasmusseNalmost all my music on my computer is lossy either ALAC or FLAC so if i got a portable setup it would be easier if the portable player already supported those.
01:22:10safetydanlinuxstb_, horses for courses of course
01:22:34RasmusseNi could always have a lossy library and lossless library of both one for home and one for portable but that would take up more HD space and kinda be a waste.
01:22:39linuxstb_safetydan: Of course. I'm just saying audio quality isn't the only reason for FLAC.
01:23:16RasmusseN320kbps MP3 sounds decent but just lifeless and flat compared to lossless

01:36:03linuxstb_It's depressing that the Gigabeat's 300MHz CPU has longer battery life than ipods running Apple's firmware...

01:42:45*safetydan wonders if it's the Speex ogg parser doing something funny on larger files
01:43:11Lloreansafetydan: The file is definitely 'larger'
01:43:33LloreanThe first noise is at 4 minutes, 25 seconds. The file itself is 7 hours (~85mb)
01:43:39busa_bladeI think it is the whole registering you nick thing... I don't know how..
01:43:51busa_bladeBigMac: I think it is the whole registering you nick thing... I don't know how..
01:44:14linuxstb_`RasmusseN: Do you want to run Rockbox? If so, then the players with Coldfire CPUs (iaudio X5, iriver H3x0/H1x0) or the Gigabeat F/X are probably the best options.
01:44:31safetydanLlorean, okay, I'll try large files when I get a chance then
01:44:57Lloreansafetydan: I'll encode some shorter files later and see what happens. Have you tested for playing very slightly faster than realtime?
01:45:14BigMacah busa_blade then just join #aldkakae
01:45:39safetydanllorean, no not yet. The test files I have are too short for that to be noticeable
01:46:04Lloreansafetydan: If you get the two files exactly in sync, they'll fall out of sync within 15 seconds.
01:46:44linuxstb_Llorean: Have you tried that test with any other codecs?
01:46:59Lloreanlinuxstb_: Let me go do that
01:47:48safetydanOkay, I'll look for that as well. I wonder if the speex metadata reader getting the sample rate wrong would lead to that happening?
01:49:05LloreanWell, with AAC at least, the problem is at the very least not noticeable across 1 minute of playback.
01:49:58Lloreansafetydan: I'd imagine that could do it.
01:50:31RasmusseNlinuxstb_ I honestly don't care as long as the portable player is good i find the ipod firmware fine now but that's just me
01:51:26RasmusseNthe ipod is too popular and fadish for me I want something different.
01:51:31RasmusseNkinda heh
01:51:35linuxstb_RasmusseN: Then you're asking in the wrong place - the answers you get here will be Rockbox-biased.
01:51:57Lloreansafetydan: Wouldn't it show the wrong frequency in the ID3 info then?
01:52:05RasmusseNif i could get around the zune marketplace i'd consider the zune
01:52:16RasmusseNthe ipod you can already get around iTunes.
01:52:42RasmusseNthe 3 i am looking at are the ipod 5.5 30GB, zune, and zen vision m
01:52:51safetydanLlorean, probably, but maybe it does something funny with the sample rate before configuring the DSP
01:53:29Lloreansafetydan: The noises I hear are also perfectly reproduceable on my gigabeat. I can fast forward to that point in the file, and they happen, that simply

02:19:59SoapI'd still like to add your real name and the actual model number to the page, if you don't mind.
02:21:26AlbrightOkay. My real name is Garrett Albright.
02:21:40AlbrightI don't think it has a model number; it's just the NewerTech TRAFFICJamz.
02:21:51AlbrightExcept for the two colors (black and white), there's only one model of it.
02:22:14AlbrightAnd I actually wrote a review of it when I was using it with my non-Rockbox'd nano, before it broke.
02:23:05AlbrightI was planning on adding a note about the Rockbox compatibility to the review later.
02:23:35AlbrightI'm now using a 30GB Video, if it matters.
02:23:50Soapcool, the reason I asked about model numbers is some companies (belkin) have a bad habit of releasing multiple hardware revisions under the same name.

04:57:06trip_i dont want to be in the situation where a user is using the apple bootloader, but has left rockbox firmware on their device
04:57:49trip_since the existance of the rockbox firmware seems to be the only way i can check for rockbox
04:58:29trip_unless someone can suggest a better way to check whether the device is using rockbox or not, (or has the firmware on there but is using the apple bootloader for whatever reason)
04:58:39 Nick trip_ is now known as triplah (
04:58:55Lloreantriplah: You *can* read the contents of the firmware partition.
04:59:05LloreanBut that's only an option on iPods.
04:59:30LloreanSince each Rockbox target has a different sort of bootloader, the methods for checking would be different on each, and in a few cases it's impossible (h100/h300)
05:00:04triplahLlorean: the code i'm writing is specifically for rockboxed ipods, but i would like to generalise it later
05:00:27Lloreantriplah: What are you trying to do?
05:01:18triplahLlorean: my media player of choice gets dbus information saying an ipod has been plugged in and tries to treat it like an ipod
05:01:50triplahi've written a hack to get around it, but now i'm working on something that will hopefully get included in the main source
05:02:52LloreanWell if you look at iPodpatcher, it has a lot of code for detecting iPods, determining what model of iPod there is, and scanning the firmware partition of the iPod for the presence of a bootloader (though it doesn't identify what kind of bootloader in regards to Rockbox vs iPodLinux)

13:50:52md-ausDo I need to backup the ipod's firmware before I proceed for the 1st time with a brand new ipod?
13:52:11desowinyou should
13:53:08md-ausis there an easy way to do that on a mac? or do I have to use the windows tools on a windows machine?
13:53:09bospaadjemd-aus, you should follow the manual, not the instructions in the wiki
13:53:24desowinis there dd on mac ?
13:53:38md-ausAhh. ok. will check the manual. From reading the wiki i got the impression the manual was for post-installation docs
13:53:43md-ausdesowin: yes
13:54:13desowindd if=/your/ipod/first_partition of=backup_firmware
13:54:23bospaadjemd-aus, that impression is wrong, and the wiki should be fixed for it (I got that impression too the first time i saw it)
13:54:34linuxstbmd-aus: The newest ipodpatcher is now fully automatic, so there's far less chance of something going wrong, which is why the backup step isn't there any more.
13:54:38Winchester345Heya.... I was wondering if samba is the only way to transfer files from the coLinux fs?
13:54:58desowinWinchester345: nfs
13:55:14linuxstbdesowin: On the Mac, the firmware partition doesn't show up as a device - because it's marked "empty" in the partition table.
13:55:15desowinor even scp
13:55:39desowinoh, thanks for info linuxstb
13:55:55Winchester345what's the simplest? and if you could tell me a link I could check on how to get it working? coLinux page on the wiki seems a bit outdated
13:56:02Mikachuyou could temporarily change the partition table, but that might make the ipod sadface
13:56:04md-ausok so I shouldnt use dd then on a mac.
13:56:06linuxstbipodpatcher has the "-r" option which you can use to backup the firmware partition if you wanted.
13:56:31desowinWinchester345: simplest - samba
13:56:49linuxstbBut there's little point in making a backup, you can download copies of the firmware partitions from
13:57:13linuxstb(which links to Apple's download site used by itunes)
13:57:16Winchester345well.... the wiki talks about the xml file.... but colinux uses the .conf.... and I can't figure it out
13:57:55desowinbtw. what do you need coLinux for ?
13:58:07Winchester345building rockbox
13:58:35scorchecolinux is one of the 3 method of building rockbox on windows
13:58:41desowinI would recommend cygwin if you don't want to install unix system
13:58:45linuxstbWinchester345: Try searching google for colinux help - it's not a Rockbox-specific problem, and I don't think many people here use colinux.
13:58:53Winchester345yeah.... I have tried them all
13:59:07scorcheWinchester345: also, i do not think that the colinux page is outdated much at all
13:59:19scorcheSoap is the person you will want to talk to
13:59:19Winchester345nuh not much
13:59:26Winchester345I got it working all right to this point
13:59:29Winchester345just the samba bit
13:59:42scorchehe should be awake in a few hours
13:59:48scorchebut, watch for him
14:00:00scorchealternatively, you can PM him on the forums
14:00:10Winchester345ok thanks
14:00:54preglowSlasheri: planning to update RockboxKernel any time soon? :>
14:00:57Winchester345and.... seems to have the info.... but half of the commands don't work
14:02:01desowinwhich ones ?
14:02:14Winchester345well submount is one
14:02:45desowinyou need samba installed for that
14:03:15Winchester345it is
14:03:41desowinand what for alternative syntax ? (mount -t smbfs -o username=User,password=myTrickyPassword //THATBOX/mysharedfolder /mnt)
14:04:21desowinoh, by don't work you mean 'command not found' ?
14:04:48Winchester345and.... the alternative syntax.... ignorance on my behalf.... didn't scroll down that far
14:04:55desowincan you ping the host machine ?
14:06:19 Join himitsu [0] (n=himitsu@
14:06:29desowinand does mount work ?
14:07:20Winchester345I will get back on that one.... have to get the windows stuff right
14:07:32Winchester345thanks desowin.... don't see a reasonw hy it wouldn't
14:12:40md-austhanks for the help - got rockbox working. now to play :-)
14:12:43 Quit md-aus ("Leaving")
14:13:31Winchester345does THATBOX refer to what the computer comes up as in the network workgroup?
14:15:46desowinyou can type here ip of your host computer
14:16:06desowin(that one seen by virtual ethernet device)
14:16:48JdGordoncan anyone tell me why the call to audio_set_crossfade() in settings_menu.c line 1741 is called with global_settings.unplug_rw when every other call uses .crossfade ?
14:16:50Winchester345ok.... now apparantly the password is wrong.....
14:21:46linuxstbJdGordon: I remember someone mentioning that a while ago - I'm almost certain it's just a copy-and-paste error.
14:22:45linuxstbi.e. the person that added the unplug settings copied the crossfade settings code, and failed to remove that call.
14:23:25JdGordonso the call shouldnt be there at all?
14:23:45linuxstbI'm 99% sure...
14:23:50JdGordonthat makes things easier...
14:24:00JdGordonI should probably email obo just to double check tho
14:25:21Winchester345ah thanks desowin.... instead of trying to get to the windows fs I just.... got to the rockdev home directory from windows.....
14:25:54desowinalways the option
14:27:53Winchester345is it possible to crosscompile rockbox simulator for windows from colinux?
14:28:00JdGordonemail sent.. hopefully I get a reply soonish

14:46:42JdGordonthats not a major setting, so i doubt anyone would notice
14:47:00linuxstbIt's "major" if you use it...
14:47:23linuxstbBut if you think it needs fixing, then I say fix it.
14:47:24JdGordonby major I mean one that is in the theme configs
14:47:41Winchester345what is the default?
14:47:52Winchester345which is?
14:48:01Winchester345oh =(
14:48:13Winchester345I use it... but wouldn't really care if it wasn't there
14:48:24linuxstbAll it means is you need to re-enable it.
14:48:46oboJdGordon: when you say word, do you mean a text string?
14:48:51Winchester345ah... I thought by breaking you meant... disable that completly
14:48:55JdGordonobo: yes
14:49:11oboJdGordon: okay - at the moment the code is doing checks for >0 and >1
14:49:15JdGordonnumbers in the cfg file isnt very nice
14:50:05JdGordonobo: thats ok.. no code needs to be changed expect its entry in settings_list.c
14:50:16linuxstbobo: I think JdGordon is just suggesting the .cfg file will store a string. In the global_settings struct, it will still be a number.
14:50:28oboah, fair enough :)

14:53:08linuxstbYou can check in the config files to see if it's defined for the sim.
14:53:13linuxstb(e.g. config-ipodcolor.h)
14:53:45obogoing on my copy-paste skills its best to check, but it shouldn't be enabled for the sims

15:24:09JdGordonor are we agreeing that exiting any screen correctly will put you there, but left is not the correct way?
15:24:41JdGordonthe problem with left exiting the browsers is holding it down while going back up the tree.. and non-sihted uysers
15:24:53B4gderwell, perhaps some other key than left should exit from the file tree

17:04:19akikonomu2Gb. like plugging the headphones in will cause the machine to black out like the battery went flat
17:04:38w1ll14mis it the aluminium version ?
17:04:38akikonomubut it'll turn on again properly if i connect it to a pc
17:04:43akikonomugen 1
17:04:59w1ll14mmaybe use dd if possible to write firmware image
17:05:01akikonomudefinitely gen 1. you can't install rockbox on a gen2 nano =D

17:05:24w1ll14makikonomu: nice :) there are people who do'nt read those info
17:05:29akikonomuindeed. under drive manager in winxp control panel, it says the nano is "unreadable"
17:06:20akikonomummm. just before it went all multilingual on me, rockbox would start and start and start in some horrible loop
17:06:26akikonomuor get stuck in "loading"
17:07:03akikonomudiskmount manager on the mac said there's an i/o error on the nano.
17:07:13akikonomubut gah. doesn't it run on flash ram
17:07:14w1ll14makikonomu: try a linux boot cd get here a firmware image, and unzip it, then try to dd the image to /dev/sdX
17:07:41w1ll14mbut it's strange that you get a I/O error
17:07:49akikonomummm. did i mention that i can't write to the nano at all?
17:08:12akikonomuit's a totally wiped out drive at the moment. can't format it either
17:08:38akikonomui managed to load the diagnostics test on the nano

19:56:25Lloreanlinuxstb: You here?

19:57:56oboso it also has car adapter mode...
19:58:28LloreanBut the option shouldn't be there, should it?
19:58:39linuxstbLlorean: It (mistakenly in my opinion) appeared with the H300 charging patch.
19:59:03LloreanYeah, but it doesn't affect the iPod at all, does it?
19:59:16linuxstbBut it's not a big problem - it could be applicable when we get our own disk mode.
20:00:07LloreanWhat would it do, exactly?
20:01:35linuxstbEnable/Disable charge during USB connection...
20:01:47linuxstbBut I've no idea why such an option is needed.
20:01:56LloreanThat's what I was thinking, which is why I asked about it.
20:02:03LloreanShouldn't it always charge while a USB cable is hooked up?
20:02:23amiconnThe option is named imprecisely
20:02:37peturif you want the number of charge cycles low
20:02:52DataGhostdoesn't it have li-ion then?
20:02:53amiconnAfaik the H300 always charges from USB, and the option switches between low (100mA) and high (500mA) current
20:03:00 Join Psilonaut [0] (
20:03:25amiconnThis current switching is necessary if we don't do usb in software
20:03:53amiconnAccording to the usb standard, an usb device must not draw more than 100mA without prior negotiation
20:04:35amiconn...and since the usb-ata bridge doesn't negotiate current requirements this way, the current needs to be limited in order to not violate the specs
20:05:04DataGhostspecs, heh :P
20:05:07amiconnHowever, most usb hosts and powered hubs don't shut down the port when the device draws more
20:05:07LloreanSo on the iPod we should be able to just negotiate, once that point comes?
20:05:17linuxstbWhat does the iriver firmware do?
20:05:37amiconnlinuxstb: The iriver firmware has an option
20:05:51linuxstbWhat do they call it/

20:08:07*amiconn didn't know that...

20:13:25peturI think li-ion suffers from the charge cycles (number of time you start charging) - not sure tho

21:31:20KarhuWaariIm going back for normal Ipod OS
21:31:32KarhuWaariMaybe im gonna try this when I get some new mp3 player
21:31:36linuxstbAs I said, the 3G port is much less developed than Rockbox on later ipods.
21:32:45KarhuWaariWhat thigns i must do to get it to normal state again?
21:34:29linuxstbManually reboot into disk mode, then run "ipodpatcher -d"
21:34:54linuxstbThat will delete the Rockbox bootloader. You can then delete the Rockbox files from the main partition.
21:35:29KarhuWaariok thanks

22:54:09markunweb-taz: so what's the question?
22:54:11web-tazmy little problem is, that the videos from this site are functioning (sry for faults in language or so -> I'm German), but videos I converted by myself with help of the converter.bat just start to buffer, the sound runs, but there's no picture
22:54:28Lloreanweb-taz: What frame rate are they at?
22:55:10Bagdern1s: I'll investigate that later, but thanks for filing the issue
22:55:10LloreanMPEG-2 only supports certain frame rates, and if they aren't at a proper one (and you don't force it to convert), the encoder will just encode audio without video.
22:56:15web-tazone video was with 10, one large movie with 23.97

23:00:05web-tazwouldn't it make a better quality with xvid?
23:00:07LloreanNot necessarily
23:00:37LloreanConsidering how small the screen is, a lot of the benefits of MPEG-4 aren't necessarily relevant, and an MPEG-2 decoder was easier to adapt at the time.

23:12:53DataGhostgrr, I wanted to type that ;(
23:13:20DataGhostit's probably locked in the hardware else guides would be crawling over the web
23:13:24[toffe]must be hidden by the firmware
23:13:26DataGhostand there would be no need to ask here :P
23:13:36XavierGrtoffe are you serious? Toshiba included a 20GB drive and only 10GB is available?
23:13:51XavierGrthat's crazy from their part
23:13:58XavierGr(if the disk is 20 GB in the end)
23:14:05[toffe]we just confirm on the F11 and it seems on the F10, I will see tonoght
23:14:16[toffe]just marketing stuff
23:14:43DataGhostprobably it's slightly cheaper than having 2 different production lines
23:14:52LloreanSince Toshiba makes the drives, maybe they just jammed 2006s with one bad platter in as a way to use 'defective' stock or something? Assuming that'd even work?
23:14:54web-taza Framerate of 15Hz is the same as 15 fps?
23:14:58XavierGrhmm well you could always remove the disk and put it on a 1.8 case or another dap to make sure that the software is to blame
23:15:21markunLlorean: they have only 1 platter
23:15:35Lloreanmarkun: Oh, sorry, I thought he said GAH not GAL.
23:15:39XavierGryeah 20gb drives have one platter
23:15:41markunor maybe they are double sided and use only 1 side?
23:15:53DataGhostthat would make them twice as slow, by the way
23:16:09DataGhostafaik :)
23:16:24DataGhostbut it's probably in the software then... the 80GB iPod also 'lies' to the pc
23:16:31linuxstb_web-taz: Probably... (unless it's interlaced and Hz refers to fields/second, not frames per second)
23:17:37LloreanDon't the Gigabeats have a hardware USB to ATA bridge?
23:17:41markunin case anyone is interested: firmware update for the MK2003GAH:
23:17:44markunLlorean: yes
23:17:55LloreanSo if it were lying, it'd be there that it happens, right?
23:18:15markunLlorean: no, probably in the HDD firmware
23:19:06DataGhostso you'd have to upload 'normal' firmware at the minor chance of bricking the drive
23:19:20DataGhostif it's identical in hardware
23:19:30markunDataGhost: yes, maybe :)

23:22:25perl|workusing some defective platters for the double platter drive to make it 10gb sounds too crazy
23:23:04DataGhostand it still requires separate production lines
23:23:05[toffe]I think it is just firmware, I have to find out the firmware revision on differnet disk
23:23:07Lloreanperl|work: It's a single platter drive anyway.
23:23:13DataGhostcrippling firmware can be done through the player firmware
23:23:46LloreanDataGhost: My theory was using single platter drives, and any double platter ones that didn't pass QA on one of the platters. A way to cut losses, not so much an alternate manufacturing.
23:24:13DataGhostno but you'd need a separate line to use those drives
23:24:21DataGhostor do another testing pass after building the devices
23:24:34DataGhostand adjusting the firmware+player type to it's capabilities
23:24:44*Llorean shrugs
23:24:58[toffe]or just a an update firmware hard drive and software at the same time
23:25:07DataGhostyes that's what I suggested
23:25:17DataGhostsame production line, different branding and software
23:25:18[toffe]sorry ;)
23:25:30LloreanIt just seems really strange to intentionally cripple the drives, but stranger things have happened.
23:25:38DataGhostwell Llorean
23:25:48DataGhost10gb drive = $50
23:25:51DataGhost20gb drive = $70
23:25:57DataGhostseparate production line = $30
23:25:59perl|workit says everywhere that "apple uses the same but a modified drive"
23:26:17perl|workso it should be a matter of firmware i presume
23:26:25DataGhosttakes just simple maths to see that a separate line with 10gb drives will be more expensive than 1 line with 20gb drives, so you just cripple the better drives
23:26:32DataGhostsame thing happens with graphics cars
23:26:59LloreanDataGhost: That assumes that it was cheaper to use crippled 20gb drives. That may or may not have been true.
23:27:24DataGhostno, but very probable
23:27:30DataGhostI'd do it :)
23:27:32LloreanWith graphics cards and processors, it's a case of the hardware not being rated at the higher voltage or frequency.
23:28:01DataGhostand some cards have disabled vertex/pixel shaders, which can be enabled with mixed success
23:28:11DataGhostsometimes they are really broken, sometimes they work fine
23:28:31DataGhostusually they test that after manufacturing (in the beginning)
23:28:37LloreanBut I'm sure testing will show whether it's possible to recover the other half of these drives.
23:28:46DataGhostlater on, there are almost no broken cores so they just disable them intentionally
23:29:07DataGhostwell, your method could be used too, with a test after the manufacturing
23:29:09[toffe]this is what I found about the mk2006gal for ipod : You have to update th ROM MEMORY OF DRIVE & Firmware, in order to use in APPLE IPOD
23:29:11perl|work"You have to update th ROM MEMORY OF DRIVE & Firmware, in order to use in APPLE IPOD "
23:29:38LloreanDataGhost: Which is kinda what I was suggesting. But it could be any manner of things. The important isn't 'why' but 'can we undo it?'

23:52:45Lloreanwebguest09: Honestly, Rockbox on the iPod is not best suited for everyone.
23:52:56webguest09my grandson isn't a noob...
23:52:59bluebrotherwhatever this language is supposed to be ;-)
23:53:00webguest09i am :) i forgot to say that
23:53:01Lloreanwebguest09: It's possible you should read through the manual first.
23:53:24LloreanBeing a 'noob' has nothing to do with it.
23:53:29*bluebrother suggests the FAQ too
23:53:29LloreanMany people just don't prefer it.
23:53:29webguest09how can i tell if my grandsons mini is a first generation or second?
23:53:29Mikachu63 year olds today aren't what they used to be :(
23:53:39markunNico_P: just need to move the bottom down 1 pixel, right?
23:53:42webguest09what did 63 year olds used to be?
23:53:45bluebrothergrumpy old men? hehe.
23:53:59Nico_Pmarkun: the whole bar should go down 1 pixel, yes
23:54:03Mikachuthey usually have better grammar and don't write "cuz"
23:54:19Nico_P(i tested with my y-coord patch)
23:54:29Lloreanwebguest09: Seriously, try reading the manual before asking for random help. A lot of things are covered in it.

23:55:29scorchewell, you know how those 63 year olds are these days...
23:55:33bluebrothermaybe he even _was_ a grumpy old man? *wonders*
23:55:48LloreanA grumpy old man who's fond of the word 'noob' :)
23:55:51bluebrotherI'd rather doubt he was 63.
23:56:04ildellaHi. I have Loader2 running on nano1g and ipodlinux appears from the menu and starts ok. I am trying to put also rockbox kernel on ipod but i can't figure out where to unzip the file: it did not appear in loader menu neither if i put in / nor in /boot (where linux kernel is). Any advice?=
23:56:21Lloreanildella: It needs to be in a fat32 partition.
23:56:28ildellaah, ok
23:56:33Lloreanildella: But Loader2 isn't supported by use, you need to ask its providers where it looks for things
23:56:33ildellain the root is ok?
23:56:49LloreanIt should be, yes.
23:56:57ildellai try right now :)
