00:01:10Chimera_hi all
00:02:01Chimera_does anyone have any experience "unbricking" a Sandisk Sansa?

00:03:35BagderChimera_: you read the wiki page?
00:04:06Chimera_Yes I have, the problem is that the Rockbox Bootloader will not read the original firm.
00:04:42linuxstbDid you install with sansapatcher/
00:05:09Chimera_I updated today with the Sansa Update Util :/
00:05:20Chimera_(that was a bad idea)
00:05:48Bagderwhy is that a problem if you follow the unbrick wiki page?
00:05:54 Quit toer (Remote closed the connection)
00:05:55linuxstbWhat happened then? I would just expect it to remove the Rockbox bootloader.
00:05:55Bagderit mentions recovery mode
00:06:10Chimera_can u remove the bootloader thru the recovery mode?
00:06:20Bagderagain, read the page
00:06:31Bagderyes it can recover completely
00:06:55Chimera_hmmmm, I will enter recovery mode then, and remove the rockbox loader
00:06:57Chimera_brb :D
00:07:39*linuxstb wonders what the Sansa Update Util did

00:09:53*Bagder has no further comments on reading wiki pages
00:10:29stripwaxAnyone know if any of the iriver iFP patches linked no made their way into the codebase (for either ifp or any other arm targets)?
00:11:28mpeccorinilinuxstb: I'm installing everything I need to compile the manual. the instructions say I need to copy some unicode support files to a folder in my Tex-path. Do you know where they are?
00:12:21bluebrothermpeccorini: what setup are you using?
00:12:23 Join midgey [0] (
00:12:37Chimera_installing a mi4 file in Recovery only sends the player back to a reboot loop
00:12:50Bagdermy god
00:13:13mpeccorinibluebrother: cygwin + tetext gives you an idea? I don't really know what I'm doing :p
00:13:18linuxstbmpeccorini: What instructions are you following?
00:13:26BagderChimera_: that is expected, yes
00:13:38bluebrotherI don't think there are detailed instructions for cygwin.
00:13:53mpeccoriniI hate it when you send people to read the manual, so I start there LOL
00:13:57linuxstbmpeccorini: That has a link to the unicode files - in the Linux section (referred to in the cygwin section)
00:14:08bluebrotheryou need tetex-unicode. Don't know if cygwin has this as a package
00:14:12mpeccoriniand by "you" I don't mean specifically you linuxstb :p
00:14:43linuxstbmpeccorini: I know you didn't :)
00:14:51linuxstbmpeccorini: I just send you to write the manual...
00:14:53mpeccorinibluebrother: I know, but the instructions say I need to copy some of those files to my Tex-path
00:15:02 Quit jgarvey ("Leaving")
00:15:03mpeccorinibluebrother: I don't know where is my Tex-path
00:15:30bluebrotherI guess it's /usr/share/texmf
00:15:32mpeccorinilinuxstb: LOL, you're right, that's even worst ;-)
00:15:43mpeccorinibluebrother: great, thanks, I'll try there
00:15:57pixelmabluebrother, mpeccorini: yes it has, I put the files in the package there were cygwin complained when trying to compile - then I ran the "mktexslr" command and it worked
00:16:17bluebrotherthe following should work (assuming you have that path):
00:16:22bluebrothercreate a folder /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/unicode
00:16:31bluebrotherput the files from the unicode package in that folder
00:16:37bluebrotherthen run "texhash"
00:17:05mpeccorinithe instructions did say I might need to run mktexslr as pixelma suggests
00:17:31bluebrotherit might be a bit different on cygwin −− usually you run texhash when adding new package.
00:18:00pixelmaI wasn't able to get the tex4ht package running under cygwin though to be able to compile a html manual
00:18:02mpeccorinibluebrother: but those instructions are linux related
00:18:08 Quit nls ("Leaving.")
00:18:18*bluebrother notices the instructions mpeccorini means
00:18:27bluebrothersorry, was reading the wrong page
00:19:08bluebrotherbut the package for my linux box runs texhash only ;-)
00:19:34Chimera_So, any ideas?
00:19:45bluebrotherhehe: mktexlsr - create ls-R databases
00:19:59bluebrotherand the same description for texhash :D
00:20:14bluebrotherso I guess both should work
00:20:28Chimera_is there anyway to access the /System folder on the Sansa?
00:20:51mpeccorinibluebrother: Ok, I'll try and let you guys know. thanks
00:20:59linuxstbbluebrother: one is a symlink for the other on my computer...
00:21:10stripwaxdoes rockbox need to pay Thomson a license fee for the rockbox windows sim?
00:21:34bluebrotherlinuxstb: same here ... didn't get that idea
00:22:43 Join FOAD_ [0] (
00:22:53robin0800stripwax, any chance of having alook at the album art patch and seeing if pearljam's assumptions are correct
00:23:07stripwaxrobin0800 : - ?
00:24:19stripwaxoh, right. yeah, sounds right
00:24:30stripwaxI got the same warning just now too :)
00:24:53Domonokystripwax: i dont think rockbox needs such a license, as the fee is per unit, and you already paid for your unit..
00:25:59stripwaxDomonoky - hm, that would make sense for the 'hardware products' coverage, but not the PC Software Applications (which would cover rockbox sim afaict)
00:26:20stripwaxWonder how Thomson/anyone get fees from linux distros
00:26:26Chimera_linuxstb: Do you think that the new Update changes the partitions?
00:27:15use1essif I give my iPod to a fix, can Apple tell a rockbox was ever installed on it?
00:27:20Domonokyhm, jeah the for the sim the fee is not payed, but the simulator is only for development :-)
00:27:50Domonokyand i dont know how linux etc handles this..
00:28:41stripwaxuse1ess - if it's still installed on the hard drive, then it's easy to tell :) If you took it off, and that includes the bootloader, then they won't know
00:29:37 Join Nosgoth [0] (
00:29:41Chimera_Is there a way to access the partition of a Sansa without booting?
00:29:47linuxstbChimera_: I'm still waiting for you to say what the Update program did to your sansa - i.e. what happened when you tried to use your Sansa after running it?
00:29:56Chimera_Oh sorry
00:30:08use1essstripwax: aight. think I've read that once you install the rockbox your warrenty is kind'a off.. but I was thinking about the bootloader thingy, how does it work when you choose to "uinstall it" from the ipodpatcher, does it like overwrite it? because a date must be logged in that case, no?
00:30:16robin0800Domonoky,if you can use itunes to restore the ipod before sending it back
00:31:06Chimera_I installed the Update using the Updater in vista, it installs and reboots, after that, the Screen turn White, and it reboots over and over.

00:31:49linuxstbChimera_: So is the Rockbox bootloader still there?
00:32:14Chimera_linuxstb: i *reinstalled* it after, using recov. mode.
00:32:30Chimera_i can boot rockbox, but not Orig.
00:32:46linuxstbOK, then that's the mistake - that's not how you install the Rockbox bootloader.
00:33:22BagderChimera_: you need to put both the OF mi4 and the BL.rom file in recovery mode
00:33:31Bagderthe BL file being the bootloader
00:33:51Bagderthat recovers it completely
00:33:58Chimera_thank you both
00:34:00LloreanNOT the Rockbox bootloader
00:34:01Chimera_so much :D
00:34:10Chimera_(all three of u)
00:34:21Chimera_which goes first ?
00:34:38linuxstbBagder: The SansaE200Unbrick page doesn't mention that.
00:34:42 Quit lee-qid ("aufwiederbyebientotsayonara")
00:34:43Bagder1) start recovery 2) copy both files to the "disk". 3) reboot
00:34:53Bagderlinuxstb: I noticed that just now
00:35:09Chimera_The pages say only to copy mi4 files (but Im just commenting)
00:35:25Chimera_ok guys, ill try and let you all know how it goes.
00:35:29Bagderthat's because 99.9% of all users should only do that
00:35:58Bagderand really, you should only have to do that too...
00:36:27Bagderas rockbox doesn't interfere with the bootloader
00:36:34 Quit Nosgoth ()
00:37:08Bagderdid you really put the original sansa mi4 file in recovery mode?

00:38:15preglowmpeccorini: why?
00:38:20Chimera_ok guys, i put the Orig. Firm. mi4 (1.00.12) with BL_SD...etc.rom in recov. mode, and now its back to the reboot cycle

00:40:47Chimera_it starts, shows Sandisk (whoosh), then about 5 seconds later, the screen fades white, and it occurs again
00:41:04Joelyno i meant budding devs....that still use windows ;)
00:41:10preglowmpeccorini: yeah, it's pretty fast on linux here
00:41:17BagderChimera_: and recovery mode still works?
00:41:23preglowJoely: sure, i do
00:41:38Chimera_Yes, thankfully
00:41:49Bagdervery strange

00:41:58bluebrothermpeccorini: about 20 seconds building the h100 manual here on native linux ... ;)
00:42:02BagderChimera_: did you mess with the partitions and/or format anything?
00:42:21bluebrothermay I suggest the vmware image? afaik this isn't much slower than native
00:42:25Chimera_earlier today i used e200tool in linux, but had no effect

00:43:07Thundercloud_I never make fun of people for using windows.

00:43:49Chimera_i see...
00:44:00preglow"YOU SUCK" on 4x2m cardboard, for example
00:44:06BagderChimera_: going one step further, you could try putting a file in recovery mode named 'sansa.fmt'

00:44:37bluebrotherwhat exactly crashed? Latex?
00:44:39mpeccoriniI have finally compiled the manual though
00:44:42Chimera_and the file is empty?
00:44:46preglowman, sandisk have really thought about recovery
00:45:09mpeccorinino, I was just elaborating your "using windows is fun. You never know what's happening next *g*" comment
00:45:43Thundercloud_preglow: :D
00:45:52bluebrotherah. But seriously, windows crashed rarely for me when using it the last years.
00:46:06bluebrotherdumping windows in favor of NT was really a good move ;)
00:46:12BagderChimera_: anything, the extension is what matters
00:46:35Chimera_Ok, i will upload the blank file, and let you know.
00:47:07BagderChimera_: you'll probably need to do the mi4+BL.rom dance after the reformat
00:47:15mpeccoriniI know, I was just kidding, in fact it is so slow because I use a laptop with a 2 rpm max hdd LOL
00:47:34Chimera_Formatting ...
00:48:29bluebrother2 rpm? How good my laptop disk is a bit faster ;)
00:49:29mpeccorinithe good thing is: I have my first patch for the manual ready ;-)

03:33:17flpwchno usb either?

03:33:38flpwchif anything, it probably wasn't the rockbox.

03:33:56flpwchyou could have a hard drive problem
03:34:10Tim_Mitchellflpwch: I agree, especially since I didn't have the unit on when it died
03:34:13flpwchmaybe some internal wiring went loose, i've had that.
03:34:25Tim_Mitchellflpwch: were you able to fix it?
03:34:39flpwchi just had a little connection on some wire that got frayed
03:34:45flpwchno idea what it was
03:34:46Tim_Mitchellwhat was lose? I've already taken it apart
03:35:04flpwchit was behind the pad near the batter connection

03:37:52flpwchusb goes directly to the drive, if i recall.
03:37:57flpwchlike a gutted external hard drive.
03:38:02flpwchyou should be able just to deshell it
03:38:24flpwchbut you need an enclosure, i don't see many around that size.
03:38:53flpwchyou'd be best off with a decent sized project-box and cutting some holes in the case

09:30:56PaulJamthere is still a bug with the double line lists. if you hold the down button then only the last line gets selected and if you then scroll up the selection is wrong.

09:34:40B4gderDorian_: there are stand-alone versions of gnu diff for windows, but then I don't see how it is rockbox-related really
09:34:55PaulJamJdGordon: and concerning FS #7236 : this happens on my h300 too. and if i try to reproduce it in the simulator the remote display does something weird, the first entry gets duplicated somehow.
09:35:02*petur recommends WinMerge on windows
09:35:25Dorian_well i just want to make a patch for something i wrote
09:36:11GodEaterdoes winmerge produce gnu diff compatible patches ?
09:36:44*GodEater asks out of curiousity only since he'd never dream of using a windows based dev environment for rockbox
09:37:04*petur uses tortoise to make the diffs
09:37:20GodEaterthat'd be a "no" then I guess ;)
09:37:28peturlet me try
09:37:54JdGordonPaulJam: 7236 is the pressing down crashes the x5 yeah?
09:38:32PaulJamJdGordon: yes

09:40:38PaulJammy config was reset when reproducing.
09:40:52GodEaterpetur, is the format with CR/LF or just LF?
09:41:01cropLlorean, linuxstb: here?
09:41:30peturCR/LF I guess, but you can use notepad2 or other tools to change that
09:41:32GodEaterlinuxstb isn't out of bed yet, Llorean is borderline on his way there
09:41:57GodEaterat least, I would be at that time of the morning if it were me :)
09:42:17petur9:42 here
09:42:37cropAnyway, I'll just say what I have found out about the list acceleration.
09:43:49PaulJamJdGordon: another thing i just noticed: if you enter the system menu from the root menu and then leave it again, the first two entrys from the root menu are not visible. even though all enrys schould fit on the screen.
09:44:36cropI've looked into the code. The acceleration works like this: when the UP or DOWN key is held long enough, a sequence of REPEAT events is generated (at some fixed frequency, e.g. 5 times per second)
09:46:24JdGordonPaulJam: ok, thats fixed
09:46:33cropWith each REPEAT event, the position of the list cursor is advanced by a delta. In the beginning, the delta is 1. And then, it's increased by 1 once per X milliseconds.
09:47:47JdGordoncrop: the code is very simple... whats your problem? yes the language of the settings is bad.. suggest better language then..
09:48:03cropThe value of X is set by the "Accel Speed" option.
09:48:52cropJdGordon: I tried to understand what it does since only then can I find the right wording. But 2x/... is definitely wrong IMHO
09:49:15cropIt suggests that the delta is doubled every x secs
09:49:37JdGordonyes, didnt I even say it was wrong in the commit message? really it doesnt matter, its just a representatino for the user...
09:50:20cropWhy not just use values from, say, 1 to 10. The values don't have to have a meaning for the user other than 1=low acceleration, 10=highest acceleration

09:52:13JdGordoncrop: which?
09:52:22crop2x/3s etc
09:52:36JdGordonbut dont change the function there...
09:52:46JdGordonthe reason I used that was to save bin space...
09:52:55JdGordonthat setting is used elsewhere...
09:53:17JdGordonif you really feel strongly, I would suggest chaning the acceleration algorithm to match the string
09:55:24cropJdGordon: I can't change code anyway. But if the same algorithm is used elsewhere (FF/REW accel?) then the string is also wrong there, i.e. it tells something that isn't true
09:55:42GodEaterI agree with crop, I think the values displayed in the menu should be an easily understood (by the user) scale. It needn't have any bearing on what's actually going on in the code.
09:55:51JdGordonI guess the algo in the other place is corect
09:56:19cropJdGordon: you mean the speed is really doubled every x secs?
09:57:02JdGordoni dont know.. I havnt looked at that cde
09:57:12cropYes, the same formatter is used for FF/RW accel

09:57:55croplinuxstb: hey! Read a couple of lines above pls
09:58:25linuxstbJdGordon: I don't think it's right to display a setting list which has no relationship to an actual setting, just to save bin space.

10:00:31croplinuxstb: and what do you think? (You've only said what you don't think :-)
10:02:00linuxstbI still think the same as yesterday - call the setting something like "list acceleration interval" and display the actual time in ms. I don't really like arbitrary "1-10" scales and would prefer the setting to say what it is.
10:04:06linuxstb(thinking about it, probably not ms, but seconds to 1 decimal place, if we keep that accuracy)
10:04:17croplinuxstb: I can agree with this.
10:05:57JdGordonms is better...
10:07:50GodEaterlinuxstb: seen this post -> ? It's got me stumped...
10:08:47crashd just a quick q, does the 'resume' function (ie, on the ipod5g, hold down play until it shuts down, then bootup and hit play again) work on filenames or an index of some kind?
10:10:03B4gdercrashd: index in the playlist
10:10:21crashdand the playlist works on filenames, i assume?
10:10:35crashdthat's strange
10:10:35B4gderand it saves the random seed for shuffle
10:10:39B4gderso that it can continue
10:10:59crashdif i shutdown, then add some files to the directory the last file played is in, it'll mess up what it's playing
10:11:28B4gdercrashd: that's exactly because of that system, since the directory is turned into a playlist and played when you play a song
10:11:56crashdeven if i only play one specific file from said directory?
10:12:11crashdoh, i see
10:12:17B4gdersince when you press next, it goes to the next song

10:35:51Dorian_hmm, i thought i was using Notepad++
10:36:21linuxstbDorian_: Does that have a "line-ending" option ? You want to choose "Unix".
10:36:28B4gderDorian_: do note that this is my _guess_ based on the look of that patch
10:37:02linuxstbDorian_: Or you could just open and save the original file, so you convert that to Windows line-endings as well. Then the diff should be OK (if B4gder's guess is right)
10:37:50peturthe _only_ problem I had with rb devwork under windows was slow compile time. For everything lese, there are fine tools (some I think are better than under linux)
10:38:28Dorian_hmm, it does have an opiton for converting to unix, did that, reran diff in cygwin same thing

11:54:35DerPapstbut mkfs on linux has the same issue
11:54:45GodEaterhow pathetic
11:55:02GodEaterand XP won't let you format a FAT32 partition over a certain amount of GBs

11:57:06DerPapstamiconn: yes. i've said the same in the forumpost.
11:57:17amiconnBack when developing the simple method to deal with large virtual fat sectors, I was able to create a fs with 2048 byte viirtual sectors just fine with mkfs.vfat
11:57:33amiconnBut that was on a device with 512 byte physical sector
11:58:09amiconnThe funny thing was that both linux and rockbox were able to handle that filesystem, but windows couldn't
11:58:37GodEaterthere's an alternative to mkdosfs on linux I'm sure of it
11:58:41GodEaterI just can't think of the ame
11:58:59DerPapstusing mkfs with 512bytes sectorsize works ok with rockbox. otherwise tons of ipl users who formatted their fat32 partition with mkfs whould complain here
11:59:35darkskiez_so, was my flaw using the disk utility to format the ipod ?
11:59:42darkskiez_should I have used the cmd line
12:00:04darkskiez_or will that not actually help
12:00:10GodEaterdarkskiez_: I don't think it would make any difference
12:00:23DerPapstthe interessting thing is when i format my 80GB ipod with mkfs (-S 2048) the aplle fw still can read from the partition but now write to it.

12:07:23GodEaterit might take some experimentation
12:08:20GodEateryou also need to play with mtools.conf's content as well

12:15:47*GodEater wonders whether it would be possible to create an empty filesystem, zip it up, and post it on the wiki with the mbr's. This could be dd'd to the iPod in the same manner as the mbr and hopefully sort out the problem.
12:17:29JdGordonno reason why not...
12:17:51GodEaterI wonder how small we can get an 80GB filesystem though
12:18:06JdGordonuse dd to create a file of the desired size, then mkefs.vfat on that file to create it
12:18:57GodEaterwe'd still hit the bug with the sector size though doing that ?
12:19:23JdGordonoh, yeah, probably
12:19:39GodEateralso, I don't have the free disc space to create an 80GB file
12:20:14JdGordonpixelma: you round?
12:22:36DerPapstGodEater: i don't think that's a good idea. I bet a lot of people don't have 80GB space on their pcs/macs/whatever(s) to extract that file. and it could happen that they have iPL installed so the 80GB image would be too big for their fat32 partition
12:23:58GodEaterDerPapst: those that have managed to get iPL installed I'd expect to be clued up enough to figure out how to use mtools to fix the issue themselves.
12:24:09GodEaterJoe Public on the other hand I think shouldn't be expected to do so
12:24:44*GodEater wonders if it's an option we could build into rbutil
12:25:23LinusNyou don't need an 80gb file
12:25:29DerPapstGodEater: do not underestimate the average moron. Most of the guys over at iPL don't know where the root on their ipods is.
12:25:31LinusNyou only need the FAT
12:25:42GodEaterLinusN: silly me, of course!
12:26:10LinusNi know of at least one who managed to dd his ipod partition image to his linux box
12:26:42*LinusN wanders off to lunch
12:27:06*GodEater is loathe to provide this file system image personally, since he only just finished organising the music on his iPod yesterday =/
12:27:57DerPapstbackup ipod_control :P
12:28:28GodEaterI don't use iPod_Control
12:28:33GodEaterthat's kind of the point
12:28:34DerPapstor whatever you used to put music on your 'pod
12:28:42GodEaterI moved all the music out of it
12:28:44GodEaterand it took AGES
12:29:21GodEatermoving ~40GB of content is not a quick process, even if you have the space to do it, and I'm not sure I do
12:30:48DerPapsti've only used about 15GB of my ipod right now... but i'm sure you don't want my fatpartition :P

14:06:15XavierGramiconn: but of course I tried with backlight enabled build :)
14:06:16amiconnXavierGr: No element in between. Backlight enable signal should be present on pad1 of the SP4403
14:06:32XavierGramiconn: I think I found it but I am not exactly sure
14:07:50XavierGramiconn: I found a voltage of around 3.2 volts when backlight is enabled between a pad just under the white sticker and one of those little strip pads that you mount the el chip
14:08:15XavierGrmaybe using a transistor I could make a LED switch
14:09:29XavierGramiconn: on another note, do you think that it would be possible to automatically power the ondio on usb power like e.g the H300?
14:11:44amiconnShould be possible with some modification
14:13:37XavierGrif you happen to know something on it, please inform.
14:13:48XavierGrthanks for your help so far btw
14:16:52XavierGryup I finally found the signal, voltage will drop after x seconds of inactivity (and x seconds in the backlight settings)

20:52:53Fu7urE101I've seen many users say that once you go rockbox you'll never go back to ipl
20:53:06Fu7urE101you'd agree?
20:53:30bluebrotherI never used ipl seriously. Installed it only to try booting it using the Rockbox bootloader
20:53:54Fu7urE101it didn't overwrite the rockbox bootloader?
20:54:06bluebrotherbut playing music works fine with Rockbox, while I didn't like podzilla and how playing music didn't work :)
20:54:28bluebrotherI installed manually. That installer didn't work, and I didn't want Loader2 anyway
20:54:36Fu7urE101I understand
20:55:18Fu7urE101from what I've read rockbox just seems easy and easily customizable
20:55:47bluebrotherwell, it has a load of options. That might be confusing, also together with its own concept
20:56:05bluebrotherwhich is explained in the manual, and really great once you get used to it.
20:56:23bluebrotherI don't understand how people can like apples user concept anymore ;-)
20:56:38Fu7urE101oh really?
20:56:58bluebrotheryes. But I bought the ipod to put Rockbox it anyway.

20:57:10Fu7urE101ohh ok
20:57:18Fu7urE101yeah I'd orignially planned on using ipl

20:57:27Fu7urE101screw itunes man
20:57:29Fu7urE101that's a rip off

20:58:30Fu7urE101you get an album with 12 songs
20:58:35Fu7urE101it costs 12 bucks
20:58:39Fu7urE101but an album with 20 songs
20:58:50Fu7urE101they should lower the prices if you ask me
20:58:54Fu7urE101if they want people go to legit
20:59:49bluebrotherthey should never started those "copying" protection on CDs (which is in fact selling broken CDs with playback protection) and this DRM nonsense.

21:15:56bluebrotherpartly. You need a recent version of loader2 if you want to load Rockbox

21:21:55Fu7urE101the manual said it didn't

21:22:36bluebrotherRockbox works on the 5.5G since quite a while, but only since about a week on the 5.5G 80GB.
21:22:52bluebrotherthe Ipods have worse battery runtime than using AppleOS.
21:23:24Fu7urE101so why is rockbox better than appleos?
21:23:25bluebrotherif the manual still says the 5.5G is not supported then your manual is outdated. It gets regenerated every day, so just grab a new version.
21:23:32Fu7urE101ohh ok

22:01:19bluebrothersaratoga: something like this: mp3,viewers/test_codec,-
22:01:30tbaGGinthanks for the help blue, im going to try now
22:05:40saratogawhat does the last number mean?
22:05:43saratogacan i just put a dash?
22:06:18bluebrotherthe last number denotes the icon. If you put a dash it doesn't use an icon iirc.
22:06:19n1ssaratoga: it's the icon index a dash mean sno icon afaik
22:06:46bluebrothernot sure if there was a default "no icon" icon or simply empty
