#rockbox log for 2007-12-24

00:00:22Mouser_XIndeed. It's great stuff.
00:00:41Mouser_XThey sure didn't stick around long...
00:00:56briantumorhow ungrateful
00:01:52briantumorso.. you don't _need_ debian for a proper dev environment for rockbox, correct?
00:01:56briantumorso i can use slackware
00:02:07aliaskbriantumor: Sure
00:02:31briantumori still planning on getting tron ported to it
00:02:54Mouser_XIsn't that similar to snake?
00:03:05Soapyou mean the cycle-don't-cross-the-trails game?
00:03:11LambdaCalculus37Oops... last patch to FS #8359 messed up a few strings.

00:08:15Mouser_XSpecifically, are you trying to generate a voice that has a space in the name?
00:08:16 Quit Delvien_ (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
00:08:32Mouser_XThey fixed that in SVN awhile ago, when Calcipher attempted to do the same thing.
00:08:51Mouser_XUser " or ' marks (I can't remember which.)
00:09:01Mouser_X(Or where, but I know they work.)
00:09:50countrymonkeywebI am trying to get sapi4 to work on cygwin. 7578 is a patch to do that.
00:10:09countrymonkeywebOh, 8359 needs to be committed. More lang updates
00:10:14Mouser_XIf you're doing what I think I think you're doing, then Calcipher was attempting to generate voices with the exact same "voice font" you're trying to use.
00:10:42countrymonkeywebHe uses sapi5. Sapi4 is not availible and that is what 7578 does.
00:10:43Mouser_XAnd, as I already said, that's been fixed, because he successfully generated voice files using SVN.
00:11:27countrymonkeywebsapi5 svn!
00:11:31Mouser_XHmmm. The name of the "voice font" he used I thought was the same as the one you're trying to use. Of course, I guess that could work with both Sapi4 as well as 5.
00:11:59countrymonkeyweb,sapi4 doesn't bleepin work at all!
00:12:11Mouser_Xcountrymonkeyweb: Do you read?
00:12:42 Quit ZincAlloy ("CGI:IRC (Ping timeout)")
00:12:50countrymonkeywebHow do I build a sapi4 voice then?
00:12:56Mouser_XSeriously, I didn't say that it did. It's been at least a month since Calcipher generated his voice files. It's not like I took notes to see which voice engine he used.
00:13:14amiconncountrymonkeyweb: sapi4 *does* work in svn
00:13:38Mouser_Xamiconn: Thanks.
00:13:57countrymonkeywebThen 7578 should be closed. And how do you do it?
00:14:42amiconnWhen configuring, just add /sapi4 to the parameter list. And if the voice name contains space(s), put the whole /voice parameter in single quotes
00:15:01amiconnE.g. 'voice:My Voice'
00:15:10amiconnErm, '/voice:My Voice'
00:16:04countrymonkeywebSo the complete string would be /sapi4 /voice: "fictional voice"
00:16:55amiconn/sapi4 '/voice:fictional voice'
00:17:13amiconnSingle quotes, around the whole parameter
00:17:27 Quit jhulst ("Konversation terminated!")
00:17:32countrymonkeywebOh. Any other options I can add?
00:17:52amiconnYes, /speed:n
00:18:10amiconnThe speed parameter has different meanings for sapi4 than for sapi5
00:18:25countrymonkeywebN is a value from what number to what number?
00:18:37countrymonkeywebfor both 4 and 5?
00:18:54 Quit mf0102 ("Verlassend")
00:19:00aliaskNico_P: Around?
00:19:08Nico_Pyes :)
00:19:26countrymonkeywebWhat are the speed values for sapi4 and sapi5?
00:19:36aliaskI'm having trouble deleting an old build of rockbox from the gigabeat, how have you been doing it?
00:19:36Mouser_XNico_P: I encountered a (rare, but reproducable) buffering bug.
00:20:06amiconnIirc, for sapi5 you can use -10...+10, with 0 being the default (that should match the slider in the tts control panel)
00:20:17amiconnAnd for sapi4, it's word-per-minute iirc
00:20:23amiconnDefaults to 160
00:20:29Mouser_XNico_P: Specifically, it has to do with the "repeat 1" mode, and disableing it using the main menu, and not the "quick menu."
00:20:45aliaskNico_P: mtp-delfile rockbox.gigabeat"?
00:20:51amiconnIf you build a sapi4 voice, be prepared that it will take ages compared to sapi5
00:21:03amiconnsapi4 isn't really suited for scripting...
00:21:18Nico_Paliask: mtp-delfile <id>
00:21:40aliaskNico_P: The internal filename? Like 001 etc?
00:21:52Nico_Pyou get it with mtp-files
00:22:01Nico_Pand it's also displayed when you send the file
00:22:16aliaskAha! Thanks :)
00:23:43Nico_PMouser_X: sounds familiar... isn't there a bug report already?
00:24:07 Quit TMM ("Ex-Chat")
00:24:14Nico_Paliask: are you any closer to getting interrupts working?
00:24:50Mouser_XNico_P: The problem is that rebuffering doesn't happen, when you turn off "repeat 1" from within the main menu. As a result, once the current file finishes, it goes to the next file. However, due to how repeat 1 currently works, the next file is a duplicate of the previous file. Thus, when it goes to the next file, it plays the same thing it just finished playing. It will do this until it refills the buffer, or until you force a buffer refill by do
00:24:59Mouser_XNico_P: No idea...
00:25:13Mouser_XIt didn't occur to me to look.
00:25:21*Mouser_X hasn't done *that* much bug reporting.

00:26:29aliaskNico_P: I have managed to get the DRAM remapped from 0x88000000 to 0x0, so in theory all we need to do now is load the exception vector table at 0x0 and it should work. I haven't tried yet though.

00:50:21JaearessI just installed Rockbox on my iriver H10 20GB using rbutil. Rockbox boots just fine. However, from what I've read, I have to boot into the original firmware to add songs to my player (because it doesn't run as a UMS device normally.) When I try to get it to boot into the iriver firmware, I get a message about missing files. Something like "Can't run file /System/OF.mi4: File Not Found Can't run file /System/OF.bin: File Not Found." Is there
00:50:22Jaearessanyway to get it fixed so I can get back to the iriver firmware?
00:51:35peturJaearess: there's a recovery mode to boot into. let me get the wiki page for you
00:54:45peturnot a wiki but an MR link. It does not apply to the 20GB but the UMS boottrick is probably the same:

01:37:30aliaskMaybe interrupts are enabled for the GigabeatF/X, but it doesn't look like the vector table is set up in the BL
01:38:14Lloreanamiconn: No, the iFP doesn't use a bootloader

01:50:53amiconnIirc preglow did some experiments regarding riaa deemphasis
01:51:40amiconnBut in fact I see no point in that - you need a preamp anyway, and a phono preamp normally already applies deemphasis
01:52:09Soapdouble true
01:53:47amiconnAnd doing it before a-d conversion increases dynamics for bass (not that it matters much, considering the snr of vinyl..)

04:18:07escargotHello! I have a stupid question: how do I create a bookmark?
04:18:35escargotIf I'm on the WPS, I go to the context menu, and there's a "bookmarks" option
04:18:47psycho_maniacescargot: That information should be in the manual.
04:19:05escargotAnd then I press select on the "create bookmark" button, and nothing happens.
04:20:14psycho_maniacescargot: then do the same thing and click list bookmarks
04:20:47escargotpsycho_maniac: There is no "list bookmarks" option.
04:20:59escargotI don't think it's creating the bookmark when I press create bookmark.
04:21:14psycho_maniacDo you have the latest build for your player?
04:21:32escargotI just installed it today, so I assume so.
04:21:43escargotIt's an ipod nano (1g)
04:22:17escargotversion r15968-071223
04:22:26escargotSo I guess it's today's build!
04:22:42escargotDo you think it's a bug?
04:23:03psycho_maniacso when you click "create bookmark" does it say bookmark created?
04:23:13escargotNo, nothing happens when I click it.
04:25:11psycho_maniacSame thing happens with my ipod5g video
04:26:26escargotHm, okay, I guess I'll wait for a fix.
04:26:39psycho_maniacbut my build is very old r15914-071212

05:29:41countrymonkeywebtrash it
05:29:54countrymonkeywebno, call apple when they reopen
05:29:58kkurbjunthe only other stuff I see located at 0x0 is the comment section, you could call the MMU functions from crt0.S
05:30:12escargotYeah, I'll have to start over. But I need a PC to reset the iPod with FAT32.
05:30:19countrymonkeywebif that doesn't work, trash it.
05:30:23escargotThanks for your help everyone!
05:30:24aliaskkkurbjun: Let me pastebin the objdump output from crt0.o
05:30:29Lloreancountrymonkeyweb: Please, stop suggesting people just trash their iPod.
05:30:38Lloreanescargot: Have you tried the iPod Manual restore wiki page?
05:30:42kkurbjunaliask: crt0.s should apear as if it's linked from 0x0
05:30:53escargotAnd hopefully there'll be a fix for the bookmark problem sometime.
05:30:58escargotLlorean, looking for it.
05:30:59kkurbjunwhich is why you have to use all relative addresses in it
05:31:27countrymonkeywebsorry about that
05:31:44kkurbjunyou use crt0.s to setup your memory and copy the entry point where you want it to be
05:32:12kkurbjunso you link the bootloader as if it is where you want it to be, for example 0x0 even though it might not be there initially
05:32:22kkurbjunand you use ctr0.s to copy it where you want
05:32:29kkurbjunat least that's one way to do it
05:32:54escargotWow, that manual restore thing looks complicated. I'd rather just wait to plug it into a PC and let iTunes handle it.
05:33:01escargotNight all.
05:33:26aliaskNotice that both <undef_instr_handler> and <_vectorstart> are linked to 0x0
05:34:12kkurbjunI was reading
05:34:14aliaskI have no idea why <undef_instr_handler> is dumped there though.
05:34:50kkurbjunthis is a modified lds from what's in svn?
05:35:11aliaskNo, I just compiled and objdumped it from clean svn
05:38:25kkurbjunwhat command line did you use?
05:40:11aliaskarm-elf-objdump -D crt0.o > file
05:40:14kkurbjuntry dumping bootloader.elf
05:40:21kkurbjunin firmware
05:40:56aliaskHrm, that looks more sane
05:40:59kkurbjunI think that would be more what you would expect to see, I can't speak for dumping crt0.s
05:41:17kkurbjunyeah, is also a good source for addresses
05:42:17 Quit |AhIoRoS| (Remote closed the connection)
05:43:51kkurbjunthe m:robe is a bit different as a note, it has some memory that is dedicated at 0x0
05:43:58kkurbjunso we don't have to use the MMU to remap it
05:44:46kkurbjunwith the gigabeat F I was playing around with linking it as if it was running at 0x0 from the beginning and remapping the memory with the MMU and then enabling the interupts
05:45:27aliaskWhat I plan to do is link as if it was loaded at 0x0, perform the remap of DRAM to 0x0, copy the BL to 0x0 then branch to main
05:45:32aliaskDoes that sound correct?
05:45:54kkurbjunare you using the mmu to remap?
05:46:23aliaskI've inlined the remap function into ASM in crt0.S so we don't have linking problems.
05:47:02kkurbjungotcha, that's probably the best way to do it, we had been using just a straight branch in the F to the MMU remap
05:47:27kkurbjunbut I don't think there was any guarantee to make sure that it wouldn't use an absolue address for the jump
05:47:34 Join roxfan [0] (
05:47:44aliaskWhich wouldn't work in this case because we are linking to 0x0, which isn't the real address.
05:48:22kkurbjunif you copied before you remaped that could work
05:48:30kkurbjunoh no
05:49:21kkurbjunso you rewrote the mmu map in asm or is there a way to direct it to inline the code after compiled?
05:50:15aliaskI rewrote it. It was mostly simple loops and stuff, but I didn't enjoy it all the same (not very fluent in ASM)
05:51:17kkurbjunI can understand that, it'd be nice to be able to give a directive to inline a /branch/ instruction.
05:51:59aliaskI know, it would have saved me a bit of time.
05:53:57kkurbjunif you have any questions on the way that the mrobe works let me know, it will be a bit different with your implementation, but I would be explain anything.
05:54:06aliaskDo you know much about L2 cache? There's all this stuff in the bootloader which configures it all, but everything works fine if you remove it (it was taken from the linux bsp)
05:55:07aliaskBasically I guess what I'm asking is, if we configure it and have it active will the CPU use it, or does rockbox have to specifically make use of it as with IRAM
05:55:28aliaskIn which case I may as well just leave it disabled for simplicity's sake.
05:55:59kkurbjunI'm not to sure about the IMX, what kind of calls are being used to set it up, are they coprocessor calls?
05:56:49***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
05:57:03aliaskNope, looks like they're registers on the CPU, they all have defines
05:57:33aliaskstr r1, [r0, #L2_CACHE_AUX_CTL_REG] <−− stuff like that
05:58:15 Quit countrymonkeyweb ("CGI:IRC (Ping timeout)")
05:58:19kkurbjunhrm, yeah, I'm looking at that now, I've never seen anything like this on an arm, although I've only programmed for the DM320 and the S3c240 SOC's
06:02:23kkurbjunI don't know what those nstructions are doing, but if it's possible it may be easier to use it as traditional IRAM
06:02:50kkurbjunor disable it like you suggested for now till you know more about what it does
06:03:23aliaskI'll just leave it as it is, it doesn't seem to do any harm as it is

06:21:41kkurbjunthe gigabeat F does this
06:21:48kkurbjunin it's crt0.s
06:22:00kkurbjunthe code is a bit different
06:22:36kkurbjunin the section that states that it's copying the bootloader to a safe area
06:23:58kkurbjunit relocates it and then forces the PC to a location before bl main is called
06:24:51aliaskIs start_loc linked to a particular address in
06:26:02kkurbjunwell, it's linked based on where the .text section is linked
06:26:06kkurbjunbut it could change
06:26:15kkurbjunso if your .text starts at 0x0
06:26:35kkurbjunit will load the address as if it starts there
06:26:40kkurbjunif you do it like the F does

17:43:50Angelofwarhey guys
17:44:43Angelofwardoes anyone know how to reverse the usual bootup of the ipod with rockbox installed
17:44:56Angelofwarso like when you press hold it boots up the rockbox firmware
17:45:11Angelofwarand when it's normal you boot up the Apple OS
17:45:17 Quit faemir (Remote closed the connection)
17:45:32Soapcompile a new bootloader.
17:45:47AngelofwarI figured as much
17:45:53 Quit amiconn (Nick collision from services.)
17:45:53Angelofwaris there a premade version that allows me to do this?
17:46:01 Join amiconn [50] (n=jens@rockbox/developer/amiconn)
17:46:04Soapor perhaps there is still a reverse bootloader in the Unsupported Builds forum. Make sure you note the word 'Unsupported' ;)
17:46:08AngelofwarI am not that technically oriented that I can compile my own
17:46:15AngelofwarI could try though if it's the only way
17:46:38Angelofwarhmm I'll have a look around
17:46:50AngelofwarI used to use the ipodbootloader2 from the ipodlinux folks
17:46:56Angelofwarbut that doesn't seem to be workign for me anymore
17:47:04Angelofwaroh well
17:47:07Soapa point to consider, though, is that Apple firmware sleeps (unless you don't use it for an extended period of time) so under normal useage you only need to boot into the Apple firmware once, and then it will stay in Apple firmware.
17:48:09AngelofwarI'm aware of that
17:48:20Angelofwarbut I would still like to simply have it be the default version
17:48:31AngelofwarI'll do some research later but for now I have to go
17:48:33Angelofwarthanks for the help

22:10:45krazykitddalton, the firmware version IS the way to be sure.
22:11:01ddaltonso 03 is bad?
22:11:20krazykitfor your purposes, yes.
22:11:56ddaltonand is it a lot different to the other moddel? will there be a version of rockbox for it soon? or is there no progress
22:12:17advcomp2019ddalton, no progress yet
22:12:49krazykitddalton, it's a completely different system on chip. keep an eye on the thread in the New Ports forum for more information
22:12:52advcomp2019ddalton, another thing is they have different hardware
22:16:14 Nick animeloe_ is now known as animeloe (n=animeloe@unaffiliated/animeloe)
22:16:21ddaltonare they the same size?
22:16:28ddaltonthe units
22:16:43krazykitthey're identical except for different internal hardware and firmware versions.
22:17:07ddaltonwhat firmware version should a v1 have?
22:17:20krazykit01.xx.xx, i believe
22:17:44advcomp2019ddalton, yea, 1.xx.xx
22:23:22ddaltonso what do I do? I am blind and the of is useless to me. will it be likely a port will be made soon or should I sell it and get a v1?
22:24:03krazykitsell it and get a v1 is the better option right now.
22:24:06LloreanThere is no guarantee a port will be finished, ever. Look at the iFP, it got so far that music was even partially working, but never really got up to a "usable" state.
22:24:24LloreanIf you want to be sure you can use something, the only good option is to get a player that already works.
22:25:01ddaltonok so what are they worth. If I sold this on ebay (v2 e280) is it the same as a v1 e280? like roughly the same price?
22:25:27krazykitsince the end user doesn't really know the difference, they're going to be the same price
22:25:50ddaltonok so I shouldn't loose too much if I do it through ebay?
22:26:27linuxstbYou can't return it to the shop?
22:26:59ddaltonno I think its off ebay...
22:27:04ddaltonand why not?

23:12:20countrymonkeyI wish to know how to install rbutil compilers. I unzipped the 48 mb qt4 zip file for win32, and now what?
23:14:16krazykityou search the wiki: there should be compile instructions on the RockboxUtility page
23:15:01countrymonkeyI checked that. It just said get qt 4.3. Nothing about how to install the thing
23:15:15krazykitthat's a QT problem, not a rockbox problem.
23:16:04krazykitcountrymonkey, assuming you're using cygwin, google for qt4 cygwin or something. that should help.
23:16:34countrymonkeythanks a lot

23:22:47ddaltonHi again.
23:23:03ddaltonok if I was going to do a new port to the e280 v2. what would be required?
23:23:11ddaltonwould been a blind coder be an issue?
23:23:44 Quit animeloe (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
23:23:54countrymonkeydisassemble the parts, look at the firmware partition, that sort of stuff. I think it would, being blind myself.
23:24:52 Quit Maha` (Remote closed the connection)
23:26:05ddaltonok so and then once I find out about all the parts and everything what is required? about the firmware partitions?
23:26:21Mouser_Xddalton: To my knowledge, what you'd have to do is dismantle the e280v2 to see what hardware it has (this may already have been done, look around). If the hardware is known (as in, has been seen before, and has some form of documentation, either officially, or otherwise), then that makes things easier.
23:26:26 Join jumpatrain [0] (i=tabac@gateway/gpg-tor/key-0xB9002659)
23:27:13countrymonkeytry to decript the firmware (more than likely it is encrypted)
23:27:16Mouser_XHowever, for the stuff that's unkonwn (which will most likely be most of it), you'll have to dump the firmware, decrypt it (if it's encrypted), and then disassemble it.
23:27:40ddaltonsure. and then do I need to work out how the bootloader works write my own one and then get it to boot or something?
23:27:44Bagderit's not encrypted
23:27:54Bagderand I've almost figured out the file format
23:28:30Bagderand I have docs for the main SoC
23:28:31Mouser_XThen, by reading through the disassembly, you'd need to figure out what it's doing, and how it's doing it. Once you've got that, then you need to figure out how to run custom code on the device (that is, run unsigned software).
23:28:40ddaltonBagder: is this about the e200 v2? if so would I be able to help out at all with a port?
23:28:56Bagderddalton: that goes for all the sansa v2s and they all use AS3525
23:29:17BagderI have no v2 myself though
23:29:36 Join lassesdatamaskin [0] (
23:29:49ddaltonoh so has someone pulled it a part and investigated the hardware?
23:30:17Mouser_Xddalton: Most likely. I think Bagder has some info on that.
23:30:30*linuxstb wonders what's inside the Sansa Shaker ;)
23:30:49Mouser_X(I thought I saw something about it, but I could be wrong.) <- @ e200v2.
23:30:54ddaltonbecause as I said before. I would be happy to help out and improve my programming skills but I am obviously limited with what I can do.
23:31:00Bagderddalton: I've seen some photos of the internals and we've digged around in the firmware files available
23:31:28ddaltonBagder: sadly photos are useless to me :-(
23:31:33Bagderddalton: the next step now is most probably to see if we can get a e200v2 to run code/firmware we've modified
23:31:38ddaltonBagder: I am blind

23:32:44advcomp2019linuxstb, the sansa shaker would be a nice thing to find out
23:32:49Bagderddalton: I'm just not sure if there's a recovery mode in the same way the original e200 has it
23:33:00ddaltonbut I have always wanted to do something like this. I am sure I could get some info and there may be ways around this. Perhaps I could work on usb drivers? or sound?
23:33:34linuxstbBagder: Do the docs talk about any kind of usb boot mode?
23:33:41Bagderlinuxstb: nope
23:33:47ddaltonok well as I said im totally blind. But would you be interested in my help?
23:33:52ddaltonor any help I could give?
23:33:57Bagderit's not very detailed on booting at all in fact
23:35:06ddaltonwith getting sound working do you need to work out how the sound chips or whatever work? isn't it pcm? I doubt they have a soundcard do they?
23:35:07Bagderddalton: well, I don't have a v2 myself so I'm just throwing out ideas on what can be done, I'm not likely to do them myself within the nearest time
23:35:19linuxstbI wonder if AMS would be helpful if we asked them questions...
23:35:42Bagdertheir response to my mail was very friendly and seemed open minded
23:36:06linuxstbIs it just dan_a that owns one of the AS3525 devices at the moment?
23:36:18Bagderyes, afaik
23:36:51ddaltonBagder: sure. could I email sand disk and perhaps get some extra information on the hardware? do you think saying that rockbox gives a blind user access to there mp3 player and they can do pretty much everything. and with the of its fairly useless?
23:36:55ddaltonbetter wording.
23:37:10ddaltonand should I also say I am a blind coder or will they refuse to give any info
23:37:56krazykiti don't think that would affect their decision either way. they probably are not allowed to release more information by the licensing agreements.
23:38:06Bagderddalton: first, as I already said we have docs for the main chip and that should do to start with. But then I also don't think sandisk will tell you any details on their file format and not about their hw either.
23:38:41BagderI even have a fairly good contact at sandisk, and he never provides any tech details...
23:39:00BagderI guess that makes him a not so good contact ;-)
23:39:26linuxstbI assume he hasn't sent you more free toys either?
23:39:52Bagderand I mailed him a bunch of v2 questions about two weeks ago that he didn't reply to... :-(
23:39:55JdGordonare there any devs left that dont have a e200 yet?
23:40:20Bagderplenty I'd guess
23:40:23*linuxstb raises hand
23:40:39JdGordonlinuxstb: you want one?
23:40:59linuxstbNot really.
23:41:42linuxstbI need to try and concentrate on one player and not get distracted with new things...
23:42:13JdGordon:) like that elio one?
23:42:31*linuxstb hides
23:43:27JdGordonoh.. anything happened with viewports?
23:44:23linuxstbNot really, but I've got hacking time available over the next two weeks, so will probably work on them.
23:44:35amiconnlinuxstb: Btw, are there news on the logikdax port?
23:45:09linuxstbThat's the other thing (with viewports) I want to work on in the next couple of weeks.
23:45:48ddaltonBagder: so we need to figure all that stuff out?
23:46:28Bagderddalton: we need to figure out the file format and recovery mode and then test upgrading to a firmware file in which we modified a few strings or similar
23:47:03Bagderddalton: when that works (recovery + own mods) we can start working on bootloader for further debugging etc
23:47:17ddaltonI thought I read somewhere sansa were interested in helping the rockbox devs with info? like hardware docs? i think it was last year or something and there was a confrence
23:47:31Bagderddalton: that was never the case
23:47:52Bagderthey gave us a few players, but never any info
23:48:08Bagderthe info came from AMS
23:48:09ddaltonso you modify the of slightly to besure you have the correct method of updating fw?
23:48:48Bagderddalton: correct, by checking if we can modify a string or so we verify that our own "firmware generator" works with checksums etc
23:49:22ddaltonyep ok and then how does that help rockbox? I thought the of runs from flash and rockbox runs from hdd?
23:49:37ddaltonnot hdd. flash memory
23:49:40Bagderddalton: when that works (recovery + own mods) we can start working on bootloader for further debugging etc
23:50:00ddaltonso first rockbox will run like the of in flash or something?
23:50:33Bagderddalton: I don't understand the question actually
23:50:54 Join animeloe [0] (n=animeloe@unaffiliated/animeloe)
23:51:30ddaltonBagder: well how does rockbox run first? does it run from the .rockbox directory which is on the flash memory where I guess you put music or where the of runs. (Doesn't that run in rom or ram?)
23:51:53Bagderddalton: rockbox doesn't run first, the bootloader runs first
23:51:57ddaltonI thought the of doesn't actually run on the flash memory where music is stored.
23:52:17 Join pondlife [50] (n=Steve@rockbox/developer/pondlife)
23:52:28Bagderddalton: in most of the recent targets, we make a bootloader firmware that we "upgrade" the player to, and then that bootloader can start rockbox or the OF
23:52:30 Quit animeloe_ (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
23:52:42ddaltonso to begin with once we can successfully change strings in the of and it works. what is next step? to work on a bootloader?
23:52:59Bagderddalton: that bootloader upgrade is usually stored in the NAND flash on flash-based players
23:53:29Bagderddalton: yes, assuming we have a recovery mode in which you can restore the OF if you try a really bad bootloader code!
23:53:41ddaltonok so rockbox will always run from the memory where you would place your files like music, photos and video?
23:54:27ddaltonok so we first work on a recovery mode before anything else? or is that step 2?
23:55:12Bagderddalton: well, testing a slightly modified OF should be harmless so that can be done independent of a recovery mode, but a recovery mode really is wanted before you try anything adventurous

23:58:01ddaltonok and do you have an url for that? I probably don't have time to read it now. (Its christmas day) but went I get a chance I will.
23:58:12Bagderddalton: well, I don't know how good you work on these things when you're blind, but you can always try even if I really couldn't to it without reading ;-)
23:58:37Bagderddalton: see the "Firmware File Format" towards the end
23:58:42ddaltonso to work out the file format do you just google for stuff and read the file with a text editor and try to see what it does?
