00:01:57bughunter2so.. can i (try to) help you guys?

00:02:37IsolinearAnd making me a sandwich.
00:02:37bughunter2that costs way too much time for me man, can't afford it
00:02:43bughunter2will do that isolinear
00:02:58bughunter2*sends a sandwich over firewire*
00:03:11BigBambibughunter2: yet you expect someone else too spend their spare time doing it who doesn't even own one?
00:03:21bughunter2you're the devs :P
00:03:22linuxstbSpeaking of which, do the new ipods support firewire?
00:03:23bughunter2hehe nah
00:03:30bughunter2think so, not sure
00:03:54bughunter2btw i don't even know if i have enough reversing skills to crack that encryption ;)
00:04:36bughunter2linuxstb, from what i read on wikipedia: "USB (FireWire for charging only)"
00:04:51BigBambipeople are only devs to do what they want to do, it isn't a service or company or whatever
00:05:08bughunter2BigBambi i know, and i wasn't expecting anything

00:11:57bughunter2btw linuxstb, do you think other companies like Cowon/iRiver also going to try to pull out more tricks to prevent users from installing rockbox?
00:12:44linuxstbafaik, they already do
00:14:05bughunter2well thanks to you anyways

00:18:57LloreanIsolinear: You may notice there's no mention in the news or MajorChanges of the problem with it being fixed.
00:19:25IsolinearI did notice that. I assumed that meant that there hasn't been any progress...
00:19:45LloreanIt means the problem has not been fixed.

00:24:53DataGhosteh. to anyone with server access
00:25:03DataGhost2 of the 3 servers appear to be broken, at least for ipod_fw.exe
00:25:35DataGhostonly the first IP does not return 404
00:26:39linuxstbWe should probably just delete ipod_fw.exe now
00:28:58 Quit billytwowilly (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:30:41linuxstbDataGhost: ipod_fw.exe is just a copy of IPL's make_fw.exe - and IIRC, it doesn't work correctly with the 5.5gs
00:30:58linuxstb(it's been replaced by ipodpatcher)
00:30:59DataGhostoh wait yes
00:31:11DataGhostI was confused with ipodpatcher in the iPL channel. I don't really know why that's still being used anyway.
00:31:24DataGhostI guess it's hosted at iPL somewhere. I'll look into it then.
00:31:33 Join billytwowilly [0] (
00:31:40DataGhostanyway, this might not be the only non-synchronized file in your mirrors, you might want to check that
00:32:08linuxstbBagder would be the person to check (if he's still awake...)
00:32:08DataGhostit's especially annoying for windows users, windows caches dns requests and the chance of getting a 'bad' mirror is 2/3 (for ipod_fw.exe anyway)
00:32:56linuxstbI think the IPL wiki still links to ipod_fw.exe - so presumably there's no official binary for make_fw.exe anywhere.

00:49:20NeonesticCan anyone solve my problem? Amarok doesn't detect my iPod.
00:49:57|Marco|hum, I think I remember reading something about the new series iPod's
00:50:11|Marco|that they were locked off totaly
00:50:24NeonesticIs there a way to like, force add songs?

00:51:05 Nick |Marco| is now known as marcosource (
00:51:30SoapNeonestic, I'm going to assume you have a Rockboxed iPod? If so may I inquire about the details of your situation?
00:51:50amiconnMarking an app as requireAdministrator for Vista causes a new window to pop up when running it
00:52:05amiconnThis is not avoidable...
00:52:08*preglow kicks vista in the teeth
00:52:09ThundercloudDoesn't a rockboxed ipod just interface through amarok like a Generic Audio Device
00:52:31linuxstbYou mean it runs in a new console window?
00:52:35NeonesticIts a 5G 30GB video, im running a linux pc (kubuntu) and Amarok is my wusic player and also was wy ipod updater
00:53:04amiconnlinuxstb: Yes, and that new window closes immediately when ipodpatcher exits
00:53:07NeonesticBut now, after getting rockbox' amarok doesn't detect it but my pc does.
00:53:07SoapIt can, Thundercloud, if you tell Amorak you are using a UMS device, or you can build the iTunes database if you wish to make your songs available in both firmwares.
00:53:19ThundercloudThere's the answer then
00:53:44amiconnVery unhelpful if you want to see the output
00:53:47linuxstbamiconn: That should be OK when the bootloaders are embedded though - ipodpatcher prompts the user to press ENTER before it exits.
00:54:08linuxstbOr maybe you could enable that prompt for all windows builds.
00:54:25 Join grndslm [0] (
00:54:50amiconnThe recommendation is to always mark commandline programs 'asInvoker', and then check within the executable whether administrative rights are available
00:55:31amiconn...and print info about admin rights being required when they're not available
00:56:02NeonesticExcellent, works. Thank you.
00:56:04amiconnRunning it from an elevated command prompt should stop uac requests even without a manifest in the .exe

01:30:30ondicy i have troubles with installation rockbox on sansa e250r
01:30:45linuxstb256 probably mean 256Mbit (32MB) and 512 will be 64MB.
01:30:48Nimdaei dunno, i'm just speculating
01:30:54Nimdaeah, i see

01:31:30linuxstbondicy: That's not surprising... What step are you having problems with?
01:33:24ondicyi followed all instructions in wiki, but final step went wrong, during booting it writes that sansa cannot find 2 files - rockbox.mi4 and rockbox.e200
01:34:07linuxstbSounds like you didn't install Rockbox itself correctly - i.e. the file
01:34:48ondicyno, i did it, i have folder .rockbox on sansa drive

04:25:00LloreanAs long as Rockbox can read the tags properly, they should be fine. So if the tags show up in the WPS.
04:25:52sunalsorisesas long as they aren't copy protected, right?

04:53:04tictocthe website says aac plays
04:53:07scorchebecause rockbox doesnt support them?

04:54:18Lloreanscorche: mp4 is a container format, like ogg. m4a is just a renamed AAC mp4
04:54:30ChrononIt should play that fine if it only contains an AAC stream
04:54:40LloreanThey also must be streamable

09:12:04ZagorI was the one who created the gigabeat-s branch, but I think trunk is better.
09:12:33B4gderI think trunk will get more eyes on it
09:12:39B4gderwhich is goodness

09:14:02Zagoralso non-port developers can often help with stuff anyway. that just won't happen in a branch.

09:18:36amiconnEspecially with target tree, non-working code of an early port will be limited to that port.

09:19:36amiconnMaybe if we want to do real "stable" releases, one branch per release would make sense, where only bufixes get ported to. But I don't see that happen...

10:08:42jhMikeSwhat worries me is the defective behavior seems to be specifically regarding swp(b). perhaps only when the cache is enabled since no problems seemed to crop up with it disabled and all dual-core test plugins ran.
10:13:17jhMikeSsince it's not technically needed given that it supposedly has hardware semaphores, maybe it's just not implemented properly and then it was revised later. (just guessing).

10:31:48jhMikeSamiconn: it seems that it doesn't when caching is enabled but does when the cache is off...iram or not.
10:32:55amiconnVery odd, since iram isn't (supposed to be) cached
10:33:07amiconnSounds like a bug in the bus controller
10:33:51jhMikeSI had no lock up when 1) disabling cache 2) removing swp(b) entirely (but of course no dual core tests there).
10:35:57jhMikeSit doesn't require any activity on both cores to do show those behaviors. clearing MMAP0_x to zero also alters things and lets play start after the disk spindown.
10:40:43jhMikeSoh, I should mention also that disabling interrupts around swp(b) instructions let things run more stably

11:04:14Zagorcan I ask which struct it is?

11:04:43amiconnIf the data is constant, you aren't supposed to change it, neither on target nor sim

11:05:04amiconnOn target this also won't work if rockbox is running from flash
11:05:18jhMikeSstruct foo; const struct foo *p; shouldn't seg fault since foo isn't constant.

11:30:58jhMikeSpreglow: yeah, but I'm testing pretty maxed-out for quality.
11:33:14markunDark_Apostrophe: then I only know one more way of fixing it:
11:33:16Dark_Apostrophemarkun: Should I try with the cradle?
11:33:32preglowjhMikeS: some people might easily prefer playing time to quality, so such remain an option
11:33:39markunI'm not sure if we support the cradle in rescue mode
11:33:39preglowanyway, options should be the same across builds, if you ask me
11:33:44markunit should have worked
11:34:03markunDark_Apostrophe: do you have a different computer to try?
11:34:03jhMikeSI think a heavy video target like that should have some output options. The appearance improvement is just too great and is no problem for film rates at all.
11:34:18Dark_ApostropheI have a laptop but it's runnin Debian too
11:35:13jhMikeSpreglow: perhaps, but such a thing really needs asm implementation and in a most obfuscated way at that to work. x5 already gets 18-bit by default.
11:35:53preglowindeed it does
11:36:06Dark_Apostrophemarkun: It says VOL+ button to restore original kernel, A button to load original firmware
11:36:10Dark_ApostropheMaybe I should try one of those?
11:36:17preglowwhy don't compilers beat me at asm yet :/

11:37:29Dark_ApostropheWhen I boot it without rescue mode, it just shows the Rockbox splash screen and goes no further
11:37:36jhMikeSit would really not be useable on slower targets that already barely make acceptable rates. e200 can handle it well since it has the memmapped video ram.
11:38:15jhMikeSframebuffer-in-ram is probably more accurate to say

11:42:46jhMikeSpreglow: on a related note: what if there really is some intractable hardware bug in PP5020? I guess don't let any targets at all utilize the COP fully in a general way?

11:43:23Dark_ApostropheWell, I just tried it on a second computer

11:45:47Zagor"This is not as hard as it seems" :-)
11:46:01jhMikeSpreglow: not _that_ general but in a way the programmer of something can define freely. I guess that isn't really user visible though.
11:46:09preglowindeed not
11:46:10ZagorDark_Apostrophe: yeah, seems that is what you need to do.
11:46:14preglowthat's a code clarity issue, if you ask me
11:46:54jhMikeSit's would be easy to keep pp5020 as it is now and have full capability on pp5022+. Just a #define change really.
11:47:14preglowwhat is "as it is now"
11:47:17preglowsvn status or your tree?
11:47:58jhMikeSbasically as in SVN where kernel object are not core safe.
11:48:32preglowwould that prevent us from stuffing audio decoding on a core?
11:49:27jhMikeSwith pp5020 acting as it is and not being fixable, that would be impossible anway for it since it's nothing to do with the kernel objects
11:49:53jhMikeSI think it's too early to say it's not but the way it acts has me wondering
11:50:04preglowagain i'm wishing for docs
11:50:07preglowbloody portalplayer
11:50:10preglowi will destroy them!
11:51:39amiconnjhMikeS: The dithering will be very possible on small colour screen targets like H10 (small, perhaps even big), and C200
11:52:40jhMikeSI think the asm code could easily adapt to output to a port instead of a framebuffer.
11:53:15jhMikeSBut what about x5 and H300. Any graylib stuff is out since it does that already.
11:53:38amiconnThose targets first need better performance in the mpeg video decoder
11:54:06preglowcoldfire suffers much since it doesn't have a data cache
11:54:10jhMikeSIt having a "Display Options" item in the menu on some targets and not others really so confusing?
11:54:48preglownot so much confusing as just undesirable
11:55:10preglowif someone wants to buy a new rockbox dap, it'd be very great to not have to think about what rockbox does and doesn't support on the various targets
11:55:33jhMikeShmmm....I guess we should only support MP3 playback then
11:55:39amiconnI think the dither option wouldn't hurt either.
11:56:06preglowjhMikeS: hwcodec doesn't really exist in my world, heh
11:56:23amiconnAtm mpegplayer isn't really usable on coldfire, unless you select a video considerably smaller than the screen
11:57:10jhMikeSWhich targets can actually play real video besides gigabeat and e200?
11:57:13preglowjhMikeS: anyway, we're still in development, it's not the end of the world, but i would for sure put "consistent feature set across targets" as a goal for a release
11:57:19GodEaterjhMikeS: Nano
11:58:15jhMikeSpreglow: well, I guess if someone wants to, they can implement it and add the item in.
11:59:46preglowdoes dithering make the output look much better?
11:59:58jhMikeSGodEater: what's the screen res? the driver isn't even optimized much.
12:00:08preglow176x132, i believe
12:00:29jhMikeSpreglow: when you have gradients like that stuf in ed, hugely
12:00:41preglowi expect it'll help remove banding a great deal
12:00:42amiconnjhMikeS: H10
12:00:48linuxstbpreglow: I agree to some extent, but some things are just not going to be physically possible on all targets - such as APE playback at the higher compression levels. So we're always going to get some targets with more capabilities than others.
12:00:56jhMikeSpreglow: banding goes away
12:01:08preglowjhMikeS: sounds sweet, why don't hardware dvd players dither? :/
12:01:52jhMikeSamiconn: hadn't tried it yet on that.
12:01:54preglowlinuxstb: yeah, i guess it'll inevitably become a bigger problem too, with the 500 mhz players
12:02:06jhMikeSpreglow: too cheap to do something not very hard?
12:02:10markunpreglow: I tried jhMikeS' patch and it looked much better
12:02:37preglowi friggin' _hate_ banding on dvds
12:03:00jhMikeSyeah, the only reason I want the option is when raw framerate might be the concern over color quality for fast stuff
12:03:23linuxstbCouldn't mpegplayer adapt? i.e. not dither when it's struggling to play in realtime?
12:03:35jhMikeSBut then a 500Mhz player should just always dither it

12:05:16jhMikeSadapt? I had considered it but I think it might look weird to switch it.
12:05:50linuxstbJust an idea...
12:06:48preglowanywho, i've gotta catch a plane, see you all later
12:10:25linuxstbjhMikeS: Have I understood you correctly that the PP5020 issue is that the swp(b) instruction is not dual-core safe, but it is on the PP5022?
12:12:34jhMikeSlinuxstb: it's not even single-core safe on PP5020. On PP5022 I can run tight dual core code with no problem.
12:13:16amiconnI guess it's a memory controller bug. swp(b) should lock the bus between the read and the write, but probably doesn't
12:13:43jhMikeSI made the SPC codec use semaphores and block the threads as the buffer fills and empties and it runs all day long.
12:14:50linuxstbObvious question, but I see Rockbox uses swpb - have you tried swp?
12:15:02jhMikeSamiconn: could turning off the cache just be making a lockup less likely? test_queue ran fine then.
12:15:18jhMikeSlinuxstb: didn't I have you check that already?
12:15:27linuxstbI can't remember.

12:17:00jhMikeSthen many thread state variables need to be 32-bit instead of 8. I packed the structures down to not waste IRAM where it's precious.
12:22:17jhMikeSwhat's that other connector at the top of the H10? a remote?
12:25:07jhMikeSThe iRiver stuff seems better made than other brands. I don't know that still true.
12:25:38peturI don't like the H10 at all, the button placement sucks
12:26:14peturit does feel more solid though
12:27:11linuxstbjhMikeS: Have you seen swp being used in any pp5020 original firmwares? I've just done a quick search of the various disassemblies from my ipod color - none of the code that's in flash seems to use it, and I don't think retailos does either, but I could be wrong about retailos (too much data giving fake swp instructions, I may have missed a real one).
12:27:35jhMikeSthe H100 and the H10 both have a nice solid case and buttons compared to others.
12:28:17jhMikeSlinuxstb: no, I've never seen it. my understanding that hardware somehow supports mutexing.
12:30:44jhMikeSat least the locks wouldn't be spinlocks but would have some sort of sleep until the other core exits the critical section.
12:32:26jhMikeSCOP/CPU_CTL does that function but in a really limited way via delaying. there'd have to be more than that though.

12:40:22jhMikeSif all retailos does is use the cop like a worker and tell it what to do through mailboxes then maybe that's it. I think such a multicore kernel implemention in rockbox to support one particular processor version would just be a bad approach.

13:49:30IsolinearSo basically if I want to specify a different font for a line, I need to also specify position/color?

13:50:34IsolinearSeems to be a quick and dirty patch.

13:52:04IsolinearYes, but it certainly has potential...
13:52:20IsolinearMultifont makes for pretty WPS's... :)
13:52:53IsolinearThe way it is makes for a lot of bloat though...
13:53:00Zagorsure. but multifont is #4733. #5900 is just this "custom wps line" patch, that adds to the multifont patch.
13:53:57IsolinearI was going to say, if I need to specify a hex color code for every line that uses a different font...
13:54:27Zagorhowever #4733 apparently doesn't allow multiple fonts on the same screen, so it's not what you're looking for either
13:54:48IsolinearIt is kinda nice though...
13:55:05IsolinearFor example, use a big font on the WPS, and a smaller one in long lists..

14:38:57bluebrotherpixelma: well, it still needs testing but from all test I was able to do it worked fine.
14:39:26bluebrotherI can provide you an updated w32 binary which should be able detecting and installing on the c200 if you'd like to try
14:41:03pixelmamaybe we could mention it as an alternative for now, but that could also get confusing...
14:41:37bluebrothermy idea was to split up the installation in "automated" and "manual" installation

14:44:58pixelmaI only have one more since wednesday
14:45:55pixelmabut the idea to mention both and split it up into automated and manual installation sounds reasonable to me
14:46:28CrackerizerHello everybody,
14:46:59bluebrotherI think we shouldn't dump the manual installation at all −− if rbutil becomes the official method the manual instructions should be still available imo
14:47:14bluebrothermy idea was to move them to the appendix.
14:47:21CrackerizerI just want to tell that rockbox is rock like it name..
14:47:45linuxstb_bluebrother: IMO the main work remaining on rbutil is to add more explanatory text to guide users through the installation (things like closing itunes (and enabling its "use ipod as a disk" option), mounting/unmounting drives etc). Maybe we could have something like an "rbutil cleanup week", where we ask people to test rbutil, and help write such text and clarify error messages etc..
14:48:01Crackerizerthank you everybody here for make it happen...

14:48:31bluebrotherI'd also like to see the usb pid detection.
14:48:32linuxstb_bluebrother: And I agree we should keep the non-rbutil install instructions visible.
14:48:48linuxstb_bluebrother: feature freeze ;)
14:48:52bluebrotherpixelma: only if your installation depends on ipodpatcher / sansapatcher
14:49:12bluebrotherlinuxstb_: well, that feature is already in, it's just missing for w32 ;-)
14:49:22pixelmaah, thanks
14:49:27bluebrother(and only for the bootloader installation)
14:50:36linuxstb_bluebrother: I don't know if you've seen them, but I've read a few reports recently when rbutil fails to detect an ipod (or maybe a sansa), but the *patcher.exe succeeds. I can't think why that could be...
14:51:43pixelmahmm... should rbutil be able to auto detect my M5? It finds the drive but doesn't close the dialog
14:52:11bluebrotherit can detect all players that have Rockbox installed.
14:52:31bluebrotherautodetection won't close the configuration dialog as you might want to change other things as well ;-)
14:53:59pixelmawell, if I close it, a message pops up that the configuration is invalid and prompts with the same dialog again...
14:54:41bluebrotherhmm −− you closed it with the Ok button?
14:55:29bluebrotherand I assume the values it autodetected are correct.
14:55:31pixelmaand of course I have rockbox installed
14:56:44pixelmaseems like it doesn't autodetect all values, just the drive letter

15:02:42linuxstb_Then, no.
15:03:01pixelmabluebrother: I selected the target myself now and installed a current build, worked correctly. Another question where does rbutil take the themes from, to me the selection looks like X5 themes (which would still work) but I'd expect to be more...
15:03:02freq32ah. so how are you guys vieweing movies? on the original OS?
15:03:19linuxstb_freq32: On which original OS? Rockbox runs on about 20 different mp3 players...

17:45:40linuxstb(I don't know if that's possible though...)
17:45:49aliaskWell it is, but I don't see the point
17:46:16aliaskI've checked it, and it should be fine
17:46:23aliaskDoesn't seem to break other builds, and it compiles itself

17:47:03*amiconn is curious what the status of the gigabeat S port is
17:47:40aliaskBootloader code runs on target, we've written drivers for a few things, but the whole MTP thing is really slowing things down
17:48:03amiconnMTP thing?
17:48:09aliaskAlso, the rockbox.gigabeats file doesn't want to boot, but that's probably some oversight in crt0.S
17:48:31aliaskWell, we can't just transfer a new bootloader easily
17:50:20Nico_Paliask: there's no way to do it under linux, is there ?
17:50:40aliaskNot that I've found yet, but it *could* be done, technically
17:50:44amiconnHmm, isn't the gigabeat S i.MX31 based?
17:50:49aliaskIt sure is
17:50:59Nico_Paliask: I can test things if you have ideas
17:51:38aliaskNico_P: Well, the only idea I really have is to reverse engineer the windows updater and reproduce under linux
17:52:06*aliask holds his breath and hopes r14805 builds nicely
17:52:21n1saliask: shouldn't it be possible too snoop the usb traffic between the gigabeat and the updater program?
17:52:35aliaskShould be.
17:52:46aliaskI'll look into it
17:53:10amiconnIiuc it should be possible to adapt the usb stack code already in svn to provide ums mode on the gigabeat
17:53:22aliaskThat's my current plan
17:53:26amiconn(once the usb stack is working properly on PP502x)

20:16:31bluebrotherI don't think so
20:16:56Lars_GThen I'll try to add rockbox database support to gpodder

20:20:28Lars_Gon the pc->rockbox side I want to add the copied podcasts to the db so they're listed as soon as it boots without a rescan needed.
20:20:53Lars_Gon the rockbox->pc side I want to read the playcount from the database to decide if a podcast has been listened to or still new.

22:35:57webguest48if the video function were to come out, do you think it would be available over the next 6 months?

23:04:03LloreanBagder: What's interesting is I tested the newest (or second newest? The one with the screen glitch fix) binary sansapatcher before it was released and it worked fine on my e200.
23:04:16pixelmahehe, doom on the c200
23:04:40BagderLlorean: I suspect that there's differences between players or something
23:05:27LloreanBagder: Seems likely.

23:06:07pixelmawasn't that "screen melting" an issue in earlier development too (can't remember under what circumstances it occured but it was fixed by jhMikeS before, IIRC)
23:06:29BagderI think the melting part is just it not being updated or similar
23:06:36 Join kubiix [0] (
23:06:44Bagderie the code freezes/stops somewhere
23:07:00LloreanI think the screen melts during an OF boot anyway, while you sit and wait for it to decrypt
23:11:05pixelmamaybe a stupid idea, could it be in any way related to the issue with some Nanos? Just throwing something into discussion without really knowing though...
23:11:18BagderI don't think so
23:11:35 Quit jgarvey ("Leaving")
23:11:38LloreanThe Sansa accesses it's flash like an SD card, doesn't it, rather than ATA?
23:11:40Bagderbut I'm not really anyone to tell for sure
23:11:50n1sI'm looking at FS #7774 and it adds a private function _gui_synclist_speak_item() and a public function gui_synclist_speak_item() to list.c any comments on such naming?
23:11:54Bagderit doesn't have ata at all
23:12:09LloreanSo, assuming the Nano issue is ATA timing, it seems unlikely the Sandisk would be affected. But that's assuming we know what the Nano issue is.

23:14:15fm2How can I produce a string with the value of the current line number. There is a preprocessor macro __LINE__, but how to do it a string?

23:24:11RogerBaconbadger : i know, but some people are interresting in porting rockbox on this player
23:24:27BagderI don't think you can do it really safely, # __LINE__ could work but I don't think ansi defines in what order they should work
23:24:43RogerBaconand the dissection have alerady been made, so i was presuming that someone was know the answer
23:24:46Bagderfm2: I would rethink and do it differently
23:25:10BagderRogerBacon: I bet there are such people who knows, I'm just suggesting there aren't that many around here
23:25:12fm2Bagder: if I use #__LINE__ I get the message that __LINE__ is not a macro argument.
23:25:33LloreanRogerBacon: If there's not a wiki page for the port, then you'll probably need to find the actual people.
23:25:48Bagderah, right # is only for arguments
23:25:51amiconnlinuxstb: It's not granted that the c200 will play video well
23:26:31amiconnWhile it does have a low resolution, sandisk hooked up the lcd controller to the PP's mon/greyscale lcd bridge, not the color lcd bridge
23:26:50amiconnAtm it doesn't play video at all because lcd_yuv_blit() is an empty function
23:27:55linuxstb_I wonder what framerate test_fps gives...
23:28:06pixelmawhy? Doom runs very smoothly.. ;D

23:28:56Bagdernow, which is the silliest target to run doom on? is it the c200? ;-)
23:29:12n1sRogerBacon: if you are talking about the zen vision m there's already a wiki page for it and that page states this " So far there have been two hard drives found in this device, a Toshiba MK3006GAL and the Hitachi C4k60 (pdf)-The Hitachi appears to be a zif connector while the Toshiba is an IDE"
23:29:32linuxstb_Bagder: The h1x0 is pretty silly too...

23:47:09amiconnThere are a few possibilities for optimisation in the driver (simpler lcd_wait_write() like the greyscale ipods, burst read from the framebuffer)
23:47:34bluebrotheris the c200 colored?

23:56:53n1sSo I think I'm going to commit this FS #7774 patch in a few days if no one objects to it (or does it before me) it adds about 500 bytes to a rec build but some of the patches that depend on it seem to get rid of a lot of code in other places so maybe some of it can be reclaimed...
