#rockbox log for 2007-03-23

00:00:06preglowi discovered rockbox while browsing misticriver for further news, i think
00:00:22n17ikh|LappyI really wanted an H120 back when they were new, and then the day I decided I wanted one I went to buy one and they had switched to the H3xx series
00:00:25linuxstbThey said that? :)
00:00:33n17ikh|Lappyand the H1xx series was pulled off store shelves everywhere :/
00:00:50preglowlinuxstb: yeah, that and ogg vorbis is pretty much what made me go h120
00:01:15linuxstbThe iriver firmware couldn't even play my single WMA file (it's 48KHz)
00:01:30woodensoulOK, it looks like I'm building now... it sure does take awhile to generate the build. To start, I'd just like to create builds from the current SVN with the album art patch applied.
00:01:42preglowlinuxstb: it played my single wma file fine :)
00:01:52linuxstbI then transcoded it to vorbis, and it couldn't play that either... I then gave up and waited for Rockbox.

00:02:39preglowyou were involved since before swcodec time, yes?
00:03:14linuxstbI was involved very little right at the start of the Archos work, but then disappeared until swcodec started.
00:03:25preglowi didn't even know rockbox existed before that
00:03:43preglowyeah, you're a fairly early show in CREDITS :)
00:04:09woodensoulI'm working throught the "working with patches" page. Do I need "patch for windows" to do this?

00:06:25OLaSparOusing an ipod with rockbox, it is stuck on a song in the player. i tried to restart the ipod, i am going out in the menu and back, i try to choose other songs, but now it just puts them in queue
00:07:03linuxstbwoodensoul: Are you in cygwin?
00:07:39LloreanOLaSparO: What do you mean by "stuck on a song"?
00:08:11LloreanOLaSparO: If it's repeating, then it sounds like you have "Repeat 1" enabled, and if every selected song is queued, it sounds like you've enabled Party Mode. I strongly suggest you have a look at the manual.

00:09:54woodensoulYes, in cygwin.
00:10:15linuxstbThen you may have the patch program installed already - what happens if you just type "patch" at the cygwin prompt?
00:10:16 Join safetydan [0] (i=cbca159f@rockbox/developer/safetydan)
00:11:03OLaSparOwell, my problem is mainly that no songs will start. you were right about the party mode, now it is deselected
00:11:36LloreanNo songs will start? What happens when you select a song, then?
00:12:29OLaSparOafter a restart once again it went fine

00:27:50preglowlinuxstb: coldfire now, which is what had problems
00:27:59preglowlinuxstb: 10% boost gain in avg on arm, which is very decent, i'd say
00:28:13linuxstbDefinitely. Does that make it faster than libmad again?
00:28:23preglowwouldn't know, has it fallen behind?
00:28:30 Join woodensoul [0] (i=4856537a@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
00:28:38linuxstbI thought the last libmad optimisations meant it overtook vorbis on ARM.
00:28:58preglowmy memory is a bit hazy on that
00:29:30linuxstbBut it's good to see the two main lossy codecs getting better on ARM.

01:04:18nbentonFix the bugs?
01:05:04Lloreannbenton: Yes, fix the bugs that cause the bad sound.
01:05:58LloreanOn an entirely unrelated note, here's the MisticRiver mindset at its fines: They've created a program that can read and swap the logo image in the Rockbox binary, instead of creating a small patch to allow Rockbox to load a .bmp during boot as part of a theme.
01:06:12nbenton..Okay I'm going to sound like an idiot. But how-so? Any specific documentation? Lol..sorry for sounding like a moron.
01:06:31 Join brun0_|SuSE [0] (
01:06:44Lloreannbenton: Documentation on what, exactly? The whole point of a bug is that they aren't documented. They're unexpected behaviour that needs to be fixed.

01:07:51nbentonThank you. lol. Sorry guys =p
01:08:11JdGordonLlorean: haha you serious about the MR app?
01:08:11linuxstbRockbox is open source - so anything is possible...
01:10:23JdGordonalthough.. going by the MR userbase.. its not such bad idea
01:10:28linuxstbLlorean: To be fair, searching for the logo in a Rockbox binary and replacing it is trivial, and the result is more efficient than loading a bmp file, and easier for users compared to compiling their own builds.
01:10:37caduone question
01:11:04caduthese toshiba gigabeats have the firmware on disk, what if i accidentally format my toshiba drive? it would 'brick' ?
01:11:07Lloreanlinuxstb: It is easier than compiling their own builds, but I can't help but think that in the time it took to write that app, they could've written a patch to allow Rockbox to load an arbitrary BMP at boot
01:11:21caduor it just copies it again from flash to the hard drive (for some odd/esotheric reason)
01:11:31 Quit nbenton ("CGI:IRC")
01:12:07preglowLlorean: oh yes
01:12:34JdGordonLlorean: well, i guess its more so people arnt forced to use one build?
01:12:44Lloreancadu: If you format your HD, the player becomes significantly less usable until you copy system files back onto the HD
01:12:59preglowbah, i bloody posted to the wrong flyspray entry
01:13:19hcsLlorean: does it have an emergency disk mode for when it can't find the system stuff?
01:13:32caduthis will be running rockbox only , so no particular reason to store its original GBSYSTEM folder?
01:13:33amiconnHmm, anything pitfalls when moving an svn working copy to another path?
01:13:48caduby the way i don't have this disk :) ahahhahaa
01:13:49Lloreanhcs: I know there's an emergency disk mode you can access by removing the drive until it powers on, and then inserting it. I don't know if there's an inbetween one.
01:13:57*preglow wonders if it's possible to delete comments
01:14:27caduLlorean, for an example, if i remove all files now, would i still be able to plug it and copy the firmware in ?
01:14:53preglowamiconn: i've done so with no issues
01:15:03Lloreancadu: There are certain files you can't remove. The flash loader looks for specific files other than the one Rockbox normally replaces and requires they be there.
01:15:05preglowamiconn: afaik, svn stores it's metadata inside the directory in question
01:15:29amiconnYeah, maybe it stores absolute paths somewhere
01:15:32amiconncvs did
01:15:42preglowi think it did
01:15:45preglowsvn does not, afai
01:15:47linuxstbIt did? I was always moving/renaming CVS checkouts.
01:15:54preglowlinuxstb: then it wasn't
01:15:55caduLlorean, nice, but in an *occasion* of hard drive error or whatever, and i need to format the whole drive, this would mean i'll have to open my gigabeat just to save it ?
01:16:25caduor can i just replug it again...turn it on and for example, throw the original toshiba GBSYSTEM folder
01:16:36Lloreancadu: If you're formatting the device, you already have access to the disk. Just don't unplug it until you put system files back on it.

02:19:49Llorean10 seconds is a little long, even for dircache off.
02:20:03LloreanThe first directory entry can take 2 or 3 seconds for the disk to spin up, but then it should be fast.
02:20:07LloreanIs your drive heavily fragmented?
02:21:17pearldiverwow videos are in sync :P
02:21:17SirFunkhmmm, any way to tell.. other than in windows?

02:21:38Domonokymake it, could help :-)

02:22:04pearldiverthere's some tearing on gigabeat though
02:22:08LloreanDircache will help, but at a cost of a little space being permanently taken up in RAM.

02:22:36SirFunkway better with dircache
02:22:37caduLlorean, i put the option to pause the song when i take off the plug.... pauses nicely
02:22:38pearldiverLlorean, yeah
02:22:46cadubut when it comes back, the song jumps forth a bit
02:22:55cadulike some random skips and then back to normal
02:23:15SirFunkit may have not taken 10 seconds before.. but it was slow enough that somtimes i would hit 'right' to go into a folder, and think it didn't work so i'd hit 'right' again and wind up going through 2 folders or playing a song or something
02:23:31pearldiverLlorean, still its very nice to watch music videos now :P
02:24:22LloreanSirFunk: With dircache off, you have to wait for the disk to spin up when you try to go into a folder if the disk isn't spinning.
02:25:09caduDomonoky, the portuguese translation is really Portuguese
02:25:19pearldiverLlorean, oh and it doesn't lock up now when the it runs out of buffer, nice
02:25:25caducan i do a modification or start a brazillian-portuguese file !?
02:26:10SirFunkLlorean: yeah, but even after i went through one folder, the next folder would take a long itme too
02:26:18cadubrazillian portuguese and portuguese are interchangeable but some words are less used in one or the other and some sound funny
02:26:51Domonokyif you like, you can shurely do another translation..

02:27:24cadufor example, like 'ficheiro' (would mean like a drawer with some sheets or files/regs in it) instead of the brazillian counterpart 'arquivo' (that means file, really)

02:30:21webguest06A question about USB support for the Sansa e200...
02:30:43webguest06One of the changes earlier today carried the comment:
02:30:46webguest06Enable usb detection in the sansa bootloader (loads OF if detected)
02:30:48safetydanCripes, you're in for a few surprises if you upgrade from a build that's two months old. I hadn't really thought about how much has changed in the past two months.
02:31:02webguest06I'm trying to figure out what this means. Can anyone explain?
02:32:43Lloreanwebguest06: You know how the Sansa turns on when you insert the USB cable?
02:33:00Lloreanwebguest06: If you use an SVN compiled bootloader, it'll load the original firmware, instead of Rockbox, when it turns on like that, so it goes straight into USB mode.
02:33:17webguest06I thought I tried this... didn't seem to work. I'll try again.
02:33:35webguest06I have the latest build installed as well as the bootloader from Sansapatcher.
02:34:10Lloreanwebguest06: I said "SVN compiled"
02:34:12webguest06Nope. I still get the Rockbox screen.
02:34:22webguest06What does that mean... I really am a noob.
02:34:45Lloreanwebguest06: It means newer than the officially released current version.
02:34:48n17ikh|Lappyso if a patch has been synced to SVN, it's probably best to use it with the source from that SVN date?
02:35:06Lloreann17ikh|Lappy: It may work with newer source, or you may have to sync it yourself if you want newer source

02:52:56safetydanpearldiver, at a rough guess you'd make an eq that's sort of the inverse of that graph, so that the eq compensates for any holes in the response of your headphones.

04:37:56safetydanDPic, what type of player do you have? iPod, iRiver, Sansa, etc?
04:38:03DPici set it for 11:35 and turned it off and it turned back on at 11:35
04:38:09safetydanCapso, pretty much. But the amount should be tiny.
04:38:12DPici have an iPod Video
04:38:35LloreanCapso: It's consuming that bit of power anyway, keeping the clock running.
04:39:08CapsoLlorean: But what is the use, if no alarm is set, to keep the clock running?
04:39:23DPicSo that the time isn't reset..
04:39:32safetydanDPic, I'm not sure if the RTC is supported on iPod (i.e. I'm not sure if the alarm works for iPods)
04:39:44LloreanCapso: Otherwise you'd have to re-set the realtime clock on every boot...
04:40:04DPicNo it does i just tested it out and figured it out- the player has to be off
04:40:08DPicthen the alarm will turn it back on
04:40:50DPicdo i have to reinstall the bootloader every time i update rockbox?
04:41:47 Quit Alonea ("Chatzilla 0.9.77 [Firefox]")
04:41:53DPicjust download the latest build and i should be all set?
04:42:34CapsoHow does RockBox compare to iPodLinux?
04:42:38LloreanDPic: Yes. I thought it said that in the manual.
04:42:44LloreanCapso: They're very different things.
04:42:55safetydanCapso, Rockbox has more focus on actually being usable for music playback rather than just being a general OS
04:43:10DPicipodlinux is based off of linux rockbox is built from scratch
04:44:03Drumrusing both, i can say that ipodlinux is a proof of concept that has a few nice gimmicks
04:44:28Drumrrockbox is a seriously superior music playing firmware with usable plugins
04:45:01DPicit does say to download the newest buld but it doesn't say whether or not you need the bootloader too.
04:45:11DPicDoesn't the bootloader ever need to be updated?
04:45:40LloreanDPic: If it doesn't say "you need the bootloader", I think that's a sign that you don't...
04:45:49LloreanThe bootloader doesn't update often.
04:46:09LloreanThere's been about 3 or 4 versions of the iRiver H120 bootloader actually released to the public, for example.
04:46:20LloreanAnd it's had a port for a couple years now
04:46:27DPicCan you give me an estimate on how often it does for iPod video?
04:46:37DPicOne ever certain number of days, weeks, or months?
04:46:48LloreanThere's been one mandatory bootloader update required for the iPod, ever, since the initial working version.
04:47:02Drumri went through about 3 bootloaders on my h320 in about 2-3 months :-P
04:47:13Drumrthat was in way early dev days thougth
04:47:49LloreanDPic: Basically, just check at the bootloader download site and see if the date on the file has changed.
04:48:06DPicI see
04:48:12DPicHow can i check which one i have?
04:48:28LloreanWhen did you install it?
04:48:39 Nick Zhaid is now known as Shaid (
04:48:51DPicwell i just reinstalled it today thinking i needed it to update
04:49:05LloreanWell, logically speaking, wouldn't that mean you have the one from today?
04:49:27DPicyes but is there a way i can check that later rather than having to just remember it?
04:49:28LloreanWhich, actually, has been out for a little while, but I mean, if you check the site, that date will be the 'current' date.
04:49:51LloreanYou can press "Right" while the iPod is booting to get debug output, if you can read quickly.
04:50:23LloreanActually, it should have a simple version number, now. 1.0

08:58:34JoelColdenbluebrother: thanks
08:59:34Lloreanw1ll14m: It's not the Nano2G we want, it's how to encrypt and decrypt for it.
09:00:25w1ll14mLlorean: but if we have an unencrypted firmware there might be some info within how to decrypt it
09:00:37w1ll14mmaybe i can get some more info.... ll ask
09:02:00XavierGrLlorean: I don't know much about encryption but shouldn't the encryption algorithm might be more easy to find when you have the decrypted result?
09:02:30XavierGrthough I may say silly things I don't really know for sure
09:02:34w1ll14mXavierGr: that's what i think ...
09:04:39w1ll14mi think the rsrc image contains some info about decrypting osos etc (i'm not shure)
09:05:13DataGhostdid you even look at it?
09:05:16JdGordonLlorean: the decypted firmware is also good to start reverse engeneering it... even if we cant actually start coding....

09:07:12JdGordonok im off.. hae a good weekend all
09:07:21 Quit JdGordon ("Konversation terminated!")
09:07:21w1ll14msorry ;) i meant aupd instead of rsrc
09:07:54DataGhostand they might even just store it in the flashrom, in some part that's not overwritten
09:07:56w1ll14mbut then, 'll try to get my hands on the unencrypted firmware image
09:08:08w1ll14mmaybe it's something we can use
09:08:11DataGhostsince, when we can decrypt it, we'll be able to decrypt aupd and get the new key from there
09:08:18DataGhostso there's no real need to put it in aupd
09:08:20w1ll14mdataghost, could be
09:08:45LloreanThey only need to put it in AUPD if there's fear of it getting revealed, and if there's that, then putting it in AUPD would be pointless anyway
09:09:05DataGhostyeah, that's why I said 'possibly'
09:09:15DataGhostthere is no real need to store it outside of a chip
09:09:17GodEaterw1ll14m: so where are you going to get it from ?
09:09:34DataGhostand I most certainly wouldn't do that either, if I had to design this
09:09:48w1ll14munless aupd has strong encryption and with a new update they use the old key to decrypt and install new aupd with new keys, reboot and ipod has new decryption keys
09:10:12DataGhostplus the small risk of bricking :) since you're now actually writing the flasrhom
09:10:27w1ll14mGodEater: a friend of a friend works by apple (ipod development)
09:10:58DataGhostoh look now that's a lot better than that numbskull who thinks a 'programming team' is the same as 'calling apple how to install linux, they might send me special software! worth a try!'
09:11:04Lloreanw1ll14m: If that's the case, then if the old key is found out (the only reason you'd change keys), someone can use the old key to get the new one anyway.
09:11:12XavierGrw1ll14m: then tell him to tell us the decryption algorithm :P
09:11:30DataGhostyeah Llorean that's why it would probably last just 1 hardware revision
09:11:56w1ll14mXavierGr: 'll i will ask, but that could be even for apple insiders classified info
09:12:01LloreanDataGhost: Official updates do write to the flash from time to time. People have bricked ipods by resetting during that write.
09:12:10DataGhostw1ll14m other than that, they needn't even know the key at all
09:12:27DataGhostthey can just submit their code to a 'black box' machine which returns the encrypted firmware
09:12:43DataGhostso you won't accidentally leak the key and you won't intentionally be able to leak it
09:12:45w1ll14mDataGhost: true
09:12:58DataGhostyeah I know Llorean
09:13:17DataGhostI'm just saying that 'installing rockbox/ipl' will have the small risk of bricking from that point on
09:13:36XavierGrI still can't understand their fuss into making difficult to load other code in the machine, if you get it broke it is your responsibility after all...
09:13:57w1ll14mXavierGr:it's about drm
09:14:07DataGhostXavierGr you have to pay for the games, for example
09:14:07XavierGror is it to protect reverse engineering their code?
09:14:24DataGhostI don't think they're very happy with us playing something like doom.. or a copy of their paid games
09:14:50w1ll14mApple wants us to run their os because of games (mentioned by DataGhost) and drm and other stuff
09:14:56w1ll14matleast that is what i think
09:15:12DataGhostoh and added functionality for models which weren't intended for such use
09:15:16DataGhostlike games/videos on nano
09:15:25DataGhostthey want you to buy a more expensive iPod :P

09:16:04w1ll14mSame as microsoft they just want money
09:16:09DataGhostwell, they're not .org or something :P
09:16:59XavierGrimagine if you were forced to run a specific OS into a PC :\
09:17:03DataGhosti'd possibly do the same

10:27:33barrywardellor did linuxstb already remap the flash to 0x20000000

10:27:44LloreanYou know, where the music is. :)
10:27:46barrywardellah, yes
10:27:52linuxstbbarrywardell: Only on the ipods I think.
10:27:54barrywardellthat was me in that case.
10:28:01barrywardellI dumped the hidden partition
10:28:40barrywardelllinuxstb: oh, ok.
10:28:57Lloreanbarrywardell: JdGordon had an idea seeing if the MicroSD could be found through bank switching, but when he wrote some test code, that scanned the banks (and locked up after 0 on his 2gb), it didn't lock up after bank 2 on my 6gb, but kept going (reporting the same size for each)
10:29:49LloreanI was just kinda curious why the same code would behave so differently on my model compared to his, and wondered if you had an insight (of course I haven't actually seen his code, so I don't know exactly what he was doing).
10:30:34barrywardellhmmm. the bank switching isn't part of the SD standard IIRC
10:30:49barrywardellit's a proprietry thing
10:31:09barrywardellso it may only work on models that have two banks (ie. >4GB)
10:31:36LloreanAh, that would explain why it hung on the 2gb.
10:32:03LloreanWell, his code reported that banks 0 through 5 all had unrealistic sizes, so there was a little more wrong with it anyway.
10:32:40LloreanBut he doesn't have a MicroSD card to test with, so I was guinea pigging as usual.
10:33:17barrywardellLlorean: dan_a did most of the NAND driver. I just helped him find a few bugs and re-wrote a couple of the functions
10:33:44Lloreanbarrywardell: Ah, okay.

10:35:45LloreanRockbox is going to need a little tweaking to handle playlist made PC-side on the sansas with microSD cards in though, if we're going to use a virtual folder like the Ondio.
10:36:32barrywardellthere's also this: "Considering that the Sansa also has a microSD slot, I'd bet some of the GPIOs configured in the init sequence (or potentially some of the other registers) actually perform some sort of chip select function and allow to switch between the internal NAND and external SD card."
10:36:43B4gdera little request to sansa owners: extract the i2c rom using the new e200tool and compare if you get the same image as the one I distribute
10:37:15LloreanB4gder: Where's the new e200tool?
10:37:29LloreanAt the old place?
10:38:08mattzzHi, could somebody please check if FS #6860 can be committed to SVN? Would help people collecting data for

10:38:34barrywardellmattzz: do the readings match what the OF reports now? if so then I think it can be committed
10:38:41B4gderI'll investigate that soon

10:39:04*Llorean does too
10:39:10mattzzbarrywardell: min and max value are OK now. The values inbetween are currently linearized
10:39:36mattzzbarrywardell: so the short anwer is "yes" ;-)
10:41:09barrywardellmattzz: ok. thanks for doing the battery benchmarks :)
10:41:59mattzzbarrywardell: no prob :) I will keep working on a precieser discharge curve
10:42:41mattzzbarrywardell: is anything regarding *charging* active in the code? what happens to the battery if I plug in the cable while rockbox is running?
10:42:58barrywardellmattzz: OK, I'll leave the task open for now to let you post more accurate data
10:43:32barrywardellmattzz: that needs some looking at. we should really reboot into the OF's usb mode when a cable is connected
10:44:44mattzzbarrywardell: would be good if the core people w/ access to the datasheet could give an indication of what can be treated by the circuits and what has to be done in SW. nobody wants do damage his battery :-P
10:45:32LloreanB4gder: What do I need to do to read the i2c rom?
10:45:54Lloreanbarrywardell: With the current bootloader, you just need to shut down Rockbox on USB insert
10:45:55barrywardellmattzz: I think we can answer any questions you may have about it
10:45:55B4gderuhm, check one of them i2c commands
10:46:03B4gderi2cdump I believe
10:46:05LloreanB4gder: I tried i2cdump
10:46:31LloreanHow do I get my device in a mode where it shows up as 6666:e200 rather than 0781:0720
10:46:55B4gderyou don't force that
10:47:00Lloreanbarrywardell: The sansa wakes up on USB insert, and the bootloader starts the OF on USB detect, so shutting down on USB insert triggers a reboot into the OF ->USB mode
10:47:07B4gderas it requires you to first damage the i2c rom
10:47:22LloreanB4gder: Well, it's only looking for that.
10:47:39B4gderare you in manufactor mode when trying this?
10:47:46linuxstbbarrywardell: Do you want to release the bootloader with USB detection?
10:47:49LloreanB4gder: Yes
10:47:57B4gderok, weird
10:48:21Lloreane200tool only scans for 6666:e200 when invoking the i2cdump, it doesn't check for the other one, at least it doesn't say that it does.
10:48:47mattzzLlorean: I agree. Can we make sure that there is no loop (rockbox firmware −−> usb cable connect −−> reboot −−> rockbox firmware −−> usb...)
10:49:25Lloreanmattzz: Rockbox would have to not shut down if a USB cable is detected during startup then.
10:49:26mattzzI dont know if there is a way to reboot explicitely into OF without keypress while booting
10:49:35mattzzah, ok
10:49:42barrywardellLlorean: e200tool init, followed by e200tool i2cdump i2c.bin
10:49:48Lloreanmattzz: As I said, the current bootloader in SVN goes into the OF if the bootloader detects a USB cable. No keypress necessary
10:49:53barrywardellB4gder: mine is different
10:49:55Lloreanbarrywardell: I swear I did an init first.

10:50:39barrywardellit differs by 1 byte
10:50:54B4gdercare to share your dump?
10:50:55LloreanB4gder: e200tool init finds my device, but says it can't claim it.
10:51:05*Llorean hadn't noticed that bit.
10:51:23B4gderLlorean: have you successfully e200tooled your sansa before?
10:51:41LloreanB4gder: I've successfully e200tool inited without that failure to claim message.
10:51:50barrywardelllinuxstb: yes, I think it would be good to release.
10:52:37linuxstbbarrywardell: Do you have a binary?
10:53:35barrywardellB4gder: just byte 0x9 is different
10:53:47barrywardelllinuxstb: I can build and test one now...
10:53:49LloreanB4gder: Ah, sudo fixed everything
10:54:04B4gderbarrywardell: thanks

11:25:41eatnumber1(GPIOL_INPUT_VAL & 0x08)?false:true
11:25:46linuxstbeatnumber1: The first thing to do is to go into the System -> Debug -> View I/O ports screen and see if you can identify how to detect the charger.
11:26:40linuxstbeatnumber1: That checks bit 3 of GPIO port L, returning false if it's 1, true if it's 0.
11:26:43Lloreaneatnumber1: if(GPIOL_INPUT_VAL & 0x08) then false else true, basically.
11:26:49eatnumber1ah, ok
11:27:46eatnumber1ok, i've got the gpio digits for charging and not charging
11:28:27linuxstbYou don't want "charging", you want "charger inserted". They are different.
11:29:02eatnumber1erm, yea, thats what I meant
11:29:25bluebrotherLlorean: nice page −− how about collecting such information in the wiki?
11:29:26eatnumber1GPIO_B changes from F9 to F8 when charger is plugged in
11:29:28linuxstbBut you need to test when the battery is fully charged, do make sure you do have the right one.
11:29:39linuxstb^to make sure
11:29:45bluebrotherthere are quite frequently questions about a rss feed.
11:29:49Lloreanbluebrother: I just stumbled across the page. I have no idea who registered us there.
11:30:03eatnumber1one problem is that rockbox reports the status of the battery wrong
11:30:06bluebrotherwe could have an ExternalRelatedPages page
11:31:21eatnumber1is there an elseifdef statement? Vim isn't highlighting #elseifdef
11:31:35bluebrother#else defined(foo)
11:31:46bluebrothernah ...
11:32:04bluebrotherforget me ... was something like #elseif or #elif
11:32:14*bluebrother should get more coffee
11:32:52eatnumber1vim likes #elif defined( IPOD_NANO )
11:33:06bluebrotherguess vim is right then ;-)
11:33:11linuxstbeatnumber1: Yes, that's perfect.
11:34:22eatnumber1so since the gpio is changing from F9 to F8, that would be bit one I have to check?
11:35:07linuxstbYes - (GPIOB_INPUT_VAL & 0x01)
11:35:41eatnumber1ok, so i've got #elif defined( IPOD_NANO )
11:35:43eatnumber1return (GPIOB_INPUT_VAL & 0x01)?false:true;
11:36:12eatnumber1just gotta wait till it's charged to check that the bit doesn't change
11:36:58eatnumber1in the meantime, how could I improve the battery statusbar? Rockbox never reports correct battery information
11:37:43linuxstbI don't know how to do that, but I think it involves running the battery_bench plugin and analysing the results in order to convert voltage to percentage.
11:38:20eatnumber1oh yea, something I forgot... the #elif defined( IPOD_NANO ) statement, don't I have to define IPOD_NANO somewhere?
11:39:00linuxstbNo, the Rockbox build system defines that.
11:39:59eatnumber1oh, lol... looking at the rest of the code, it seems that bit one of GPIOB is for when it is charging =)
11:40:22eatnumber1it is probably the same as the video... on my ipod that GPIO also changes when I insert the charger

13:13:55jhMikeSpreglow: odd, I haven't noticed happen but I'm using make 3.81 ... all I can really say about it
13:14:49jhMikeSI remember encountering the need for double makes with the old version I had...not just for codecs
13:15:14nlsthere's another fun one, but not as anoyying, when running make -j it errors out on codec_crt0.o file not found...
13:15:32nlssometimes, not always
13:15:56linuxstbnls: Yes, I get that sometimes (with make -j)
13:22:41LinusNthe codec double-make is a dependency problem
13:23:30linuxstbCan you see the problem?
13:24:20jhMikeSnext logical question: can anything be done about it?
13:24:28amiconnThere's a probably related problem: In simulator builds, codecs are always relinked, even if issuing 'make' with no changes at all

17:08:39flukethe vendor(the mp3 maker, i dont know if i spelt it wrong) provide a software to upgrade the firmware, but i want to add some function to my mp3, so i think of porting rockbox to it
17:09:26flukeim from china, my mp3 is an old-style one, ANECA sf810
17:09:46sbehthe vendor's firmware on my sandisk sansa e260 hangs, is the only way to get it back working to wait until the batteries are discharged?
17:10:20linuxstbGodEater_: I'm not sure what you mean... Do you mean we need to buffer one image per audio track?
17:10:21GodEater_toffe82, I think the main argument around album art is it's implementation - it'll always be a personal choice as to whether or not to use that implementation.
17:10:47GodEater_linuxstb, not that we *need* to no
17:10:54nlssbeh: hold down power for about 15 seconds
17:11:05markunfluke: your english seems fine to me, don't worry :)
17:11:29markunfluke: do you know what kind of hardware is inside the SF810?
17:11:30GodEater_linuxstb, the description of MoB as it was explained to me was to load metadata for a given track into part of the audio buffer?
17:11:52linuxstbNo, it's to load metadata for every track into the audio buffer, immediately before the track itself.
17:12:05GodEater_every track in the playlist ?
17:12:13linuxstbEvery track that is buffered.
17:12:18sbehnls: ah, thank you
17:12:35GodEater_and that metadata can come from anywhere? Not just the tracks themselves ?
17:13:02linuxstbIt's whatever the "get_metadata(filename)" function reads for that file.
17:13:26GodEater_so for album art that could include just the .bmp file in the same directory as the track
17:13:28GodEater_I see
17:13:43GodEater_when I read metadata, I just assumed tags
17:14:01linuxstbNo, it's everything surrounding the track. Lyrics have also been mentioned.
17:14:04fluke<markun> , i dont know, i'll check it out by google, and i plan to buy a 2nd-hand ipod, then maybe i can add some function to the current rockbox firmware
17:14:08GodEater_I should remember what's said about assumption :)
17:15:14GodEater_how large is the audio buffer on a swcodec target typically ?
17:15:17flukethe reason i want to port the firmware, is not only to satisfy my need but also to improve my programming skill, im a colledge student in Computer Science
17:15:42markunfluke: ok, great
17:15:47markunwelcome to rockbox :)
17:16:12flukei come from the Google Code of Summer page
17:16:27markunwe also have a chinese translation, but it's difficult to find good fonts
17:16:36linuxstbGodEater: The 32MB targets have about 29MB for the audio buffer, depending on things like the database, dircache etc.
17:17:10linuxstbSome targets are 16MB, and the 60GB/80GB ipod videos are 64MB.
17:17:20GodEater_and is the audio buffer the one which contains the compressed data, or the uncompressed pcm ?
17:17:21flukeI think I need some time to get familiar with your project, If I could do it , I want to make it support Chinese language
17:17:29linuxstbGodEater: The compressed data.
17:17:40GodEater_so there should be plenty of room really then
17:17:46linuxstbThere's a 512KB buffer for the uncompressed PCM.
17:18:17markunfluke: we already have support for the chinese language
17:18:20fluke<markun>, I didn't know you have a chinese translation
17:19:14markunchinese-simp.lang and chinese-trad.lang
17:19:17flukeok , i'll take a look at the wiki, i think i don't know enough about this project
17:19:35linuxstbGodEater: Currently Rockbox (swcodec) has a hard-coded limit of 32 tracks which can be buffered at the same time. So we have an array of 32 metadata structs. So adding album-art cleanly (i.e. not performing additional disk spin-ups) would mean reserving buffer space for 32 images.

17:50:01linuxstbfluke: The Rockbox "simulator" is not an emulator - it is Rockbox compiled to run on your PC - i.e. x86 code.
17:50:33linuxstbmarkun: I find his #2 optimistic though...
17:50:35flukeim checking out the codes from your svn, can you tell me what ui do you use? by yourown or minigui or some other open source ui?
17:50:53linuxstbOur own.
17:51:12linuxstbIt's a very simple, mainly text-based UI.
17:51:55flukei saw some game plugins on your wiki for ipod-port
17:52:20 Join |Rincewind| [0] (
17:52:36linuxstbThe game plugins run on all ports - Rockbox is 99% the same on all players.
17:53:20flukewhy does you just allow one plugin run on the same time?
17:53:39flukehow to you implement the plugin
17:53:46perl|workhaha scummvm for the summer of code
17:54:40markunlinuxstb: maybe a bit optimistic, but I've emailed with this guy and he really knows what he is talking about.
17:54:41flukeis rockbox only a single-process os?
17:55:22markunfluke: no, we have threads
17:56:13flukeso if you wish, you can allow more than one plugin run on the same time?
17:56:42flukeyou make plugin a sub-thread (like fork) or something diferent?
17:57:14linuxstbNo, plugins run in the main (UI) thread.

18:03:00amiconnFirst, co-ordinating screen access would become a problem.
18:03:17linuxstbfluke: Another important thing to realise about Rockbox is that there is no dynamic memory allocation.
18:03:38amiconnBut even simpler, plugins are statically linked to a fixed address, so you can't run 2 without changing the whole way plugins are handled

18:17:29lnxmomodo you own one piroko and tried it?
18:17:32amiconnt really speak about the sound of the M5 specifically, but it's the same as X5 because the audio hw is identical
18:17:33pirokoSure do
18:17:57amiconnThe headphone amp is definitely less noisy than the iriver's
18:17:57leftrightamiconn, is there a difference in sound quality between the two ?
18:18:24amiconnBut it has no hardware tone control

22:32:53shelly33i don't see anyplace in the manual to uninstall firmware....i am trying to get rockbox off of a iriver 120 (selling it to a girl that doesn't want RB on there)
22:33:20shelly33how can I email you Soap?
22:33:35Soapdmhall at google's email service.
22:33:49Lloreanshelly33: Firstly, I'd suggest you strongly recommend to her that she try Rockbox first. On the H120 the only thing you lose is WMA playback, and you gain a whole host of features, including better battery life which is useful even if you don't want the rest.
22:33:52shelly33thank you nls
22:36:12shelly33i agree Llorean and have told her, but she is a noob and doesnt know anything other than that she wants a "new one"
22:36:17shelly33dumb, I know
22:37:07LloreanDid you try asking her simply why she wants a "new one"?
22:37:32shelly33she has no clue..i use it for gapless
22:37:55LloreanShe wants a new one, but has explicitly said she doesn't know why?
22:38:20shelly33she doesnt understand firmware or upgrades etc...wants to use the ON button etc
22:38:24shelly33whatever I guess
22:38:38 Quit perl|work ("Trillian (")
22:38:49LloreanShe doesn't need to understand firmware or upgrades... you're not really making any sense.
22:39:04LloreanRockbox doesn't disabled any buttons, either.

22:43:02LloreanI can't help but think that Rockbox just wasn't explained well to the poor girl, if he felt those were among the reasons she wasn't interested.
22:43:22jac0bis the sansa daily build supposed to recognize when the USB is connected
22:43:55Lloreanjac0b: Firstly, out of sheer curiosity, why are you using the daily build instead of the current one?
22:44:19LloreanSecondly, does yours not show a USB cable on the screen when you plug in a USB cable?
22:45:31jac0bis there something wrong with using the daily build?
22:45:56LloreanDo you know the difference between the daily build and the current build?
22:46:00linuxstbNo, but it's almost always out of date.
22:46:09jac0byes it shows the USB is connected but in the changelog it said "
22:46:09jac0bEnable usb detection in the sansa bootloader (loads OF if detected)
22:46:26Lloreanjac0b: Notice the word "bootloader" there?
22:47:02LloreanRockbox doesn't do anything on USB insert.
22:47:02jac0bthat is for when it is booting up right
22:47:06linuxstbsansapatcher has now been updated with that bootloader....
22:47:44jac0bI tried that and it didn't boot to the orignial firmware
22:48:00linuxstbYou've updated the bootloader?
22:48:43jac0bdid they come out with a new bootloader?
22:49:36Lloreanjac0b: How would you expect a bootloader change to affect your system, if you haven't put a new bootloader that has that change on it, out of curiosity?
22:50:54jac0bI thought they updated the OS of rockbox not the bootloader, my bad sorry
22:51:31Bagderwe update the bootloader too occasionally

22:51:58LloreanIt did say "bootloader" in the message you found, and everything. :)
22:53:16scorcheBagder: do you mean too often, or not often enough by that?
22:53:48Bagderas in addition to the "OS of rockbox"
22:54:09Llorean"We update the bootloader as well, occasionally" :)
22:54:44scorcheah =)
22:54:53jac0bokay now about the daily build/current build what is the suggested one to use
22:55:17Lloreanjac0b: The newest one, which is the current build.
22:57:05 Join scorche` [0] (i=ScorchE@rockbox/administrator/scorche)
22:57:09jac0bI go to the current build page but click this to read what is in teh changelog
22:57:46LloreanYes, those are older builds
22:57:50LloreanAs the link to them should suggest.
22:58:15jac0bbut I got the one with the date of 3/23
22:58:25LloreanAs in, it was made at the start of 3/23
22:58:28jac0bisn't that current?
22:58:35LloreanCurrent is "made last time anything changed"
22:58:39LloreanNot "made once per day"
22:58:47LloreanThere can be as many as 15 new builds during a day
22:59:09 Join Thundercloud_ [0] (n=thunderc@
22:59:15linuxstbOnly 15?
22:59:31LloreanOkay, there can be as many as 205ish builds per day
22:59:33LloreanBut it's unlikely
22:59:37LloreanAssuming 7 minutes per build.
22:59:48jac0bwhere is the new bootloader?
23:00:14Lloreanjac0b: In the new sansapatcher. Just re-follow the bootloader install instructions, downloading the new version of the file.
23:00:45jac0bokay so the ones on are right now builds and ones I am getting are yesterdays build
23:01:26LloreanThat's why that is the "Current build" page, and the earlier page you linked to is described as having "older builds" on that very page, yes.

23:02:46jac0bLlorean: thanks
23:04:27mattzzAnybody happens to know whether we have hardware controlled charging in the sansa?
23:04:55LloreanBagder: Maybe we should mention on the daily build page that all files on that page are older than the 'current build' and users should update to the download on the current build page if they experience any problems.
23:05:09scorche`mattzz: there is
23:05:36scorche`any target with lithium-ion has it really...
23:05:48mattzzscorche: so if I plug in the cable the battery will be charged fully automatically?
23:06:22mattzz(assuming rockbox is loaded)
23:08:33 Part nls
23:08:35Lloreanmattzz: The hardware should prevent it from overcharging. Since Rockbox doesn't really do anything with USB, odds are it'll be like the other PortalPlayer targets and only draw 100mA instead of 500, so you'll either charge very slowly, or slowly lose power because the device is using a bit more than the draw.

23:10:45mattzzLlorean: Thanks for the info. So I assume that there are some settings for the AS3514 that have to be configured in order to have it charging with 500mA.

23:13:20Lloreanmattzz: What does the AS3514 have to do with USB?

23:14:18linuxstbThe AS3514 is also the power-management chip IIUC.
23:14:43mattzzLlorean: the datasheet states "It also contains a charger and is designed for battery supplies from 1V to 5V.
23:14:46Lloreanlinuxstb: Yeah, but it's the USB not being in high power mode that should be the problem.
23:14:55Lloreanlinuxstb: Just like the iPods, right?
23:15:29 Join merlin2049er [0] (
23:16:02linuxstbYes, I didn't read the logs properly... But as the AS3514 datasheets aren't public, I don't know.
23:16:45WebgiestQuestion, since I don't like the new boot loader on my e2xx, can I just install the old boot loader over it and be Ok? The artifacts at the top of the screen are ugly.
23:17:08Lloreanmattzz: The problem lies in the USB negotiation, as I said. Or it most likely does at least.
23:17:34mattzzLlorean: OK, thanks. That is beyond my scope :-p

23:25:03LloreanI imagine they'll have USB support before we do, since they won't have to write a whole USB stack.
