00:07:05balug_Hi, I'm using rb's recording on my sansa for openstreetmapping. One thing that bugs me is that I can't easily decide if the device is recording or not.
00:07:23balug_Are there any skins that give a clear indication of record/pause?

00:11:14stripwaxbalug_ - do you not get the "while recording screen" ?
00:12:58 Join seisei [0] (n=48b1c3f6@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
00:13:00balug_I get the recording screen, no problem with that. But the only way to decide if it is recording is currently looking at the elapsed time and the size.
00:14:33stripwaxbalug_ - what theme are you using? I thought the default rockbox themes have a play/pause icon
00:14:54balug_And this is a little awkward when walking thru the streets in the middle of the night. As the bottom of the screen is free, I'd like a nice big play / pause icon there.
00:16:19balug_Yes, thats what I see. But the difference is only in like four tiny characters. Darn, maybe I'm getting old and loosing eyesight.
00:16:52seiseiIs there a way to format my m3u playlists in the Playlists folder to play the music loaded onto my ipod by itunes without having to reload the files directly into the Music folder?

00:23:14pixelmabalug_: there are plans to for the "wrs". The first goal is to make it use the user font, not the built-in small one. Work started but no-one can tell when that'll be in current builds
00:29:17balug_pixelma: Thanks, good to know there is progress. Maybe I'll try to hack and change the background color or something.
00:30:58n1sbalug_: the colors should be changable through the theme settings, no hcaking needed

00:43:51balug_Nico_P: I walk along the road, gpx logger in pocket, and whenever I set a waypoint, I record a short message on the device. So I'm often pressing play/pause to switch.
00:45:02Nico_Pbalug_: right. btw, are you the one who posted the FS feature request for an openstreetmap plugin?
00:45:22balug_Nico_P: And sometimes I've noticed afterwards that I got out of sync and inverted the state. That I recorded everything but my message. Grmbl.
00:45:57Nico_PI can see how that can be frustrating
00:46:04SinthrillMeadeari just fixed the Arctic_Desert theme for the 5g Ipod. Can I get write permission for the wiki?
00:46:09pixelmaGartral: but the Player/Studio doesn't have an SD/MMC slot. And similarities in looks can sometimes be misleading, like e.g. the v2 sansas look the same as the v1 ones but have very different hardware inside. Do you know more about that device?
00:46:22balug_Nico_P: No, but I had the same idea weeks ago. And it was the reason for me visiting the website tonight. And then I noticed that somebody else had this idea yesterday. Bugger :-)
00:47:56Nico_Pbalug_: it actually seems feasible (don't know about the performance requirements, but I guess recent targets like the S will be able to handle it). I've started work on an sqlite port to rockbox, and from what I saw the data is available as an sqlite DB.

05:37:44saratogathats going to be an enormous amount of work
05:38:21saratogabut if you're really good at reading assembly you might figure out how it decides which sector size to use and patch it

05:40:06wpyhthe apple bootloader doesn't even recognize RB's bootloader
05:40:20wpyhI also tried iPodLinux's bootloader, and it didn't recognize it too

05:41:21saratogaget a CF card taht works and use that
05:41:51wpyhuh... that seems to be the *easiest* route
05:43:32saratogadoes it load the bootloader at all or does it crash before transfering to it from the Apple firmware?

07:34:15amiconnB4gder, wpyh: Actually there were 2 problems regarding the G5.5. (1) The logical sector size of 2048 bytes. This was solved early, with a clever trick in the fat driver (after the first try was very unstable). (2) The physical sector size of 1024 bytes (80GB model only)

07:35:25wpyhamiconn: OK, so rockbox sees the drive as 2048-byte sectors when it is booted up, right?
07:36:07amiconnAt the ata api level, a sector is always 512 bytes
07:36:31amiconnThe ata driver handles the translation on the G5.5/80GB
07:37:07amiconnHandling the 2048 byte logical sectors is done by just splitting them into 4 * 512 byte
07:37:33wpyhso, for the 5g(30,60) and 5.5g(30), rockbox sees the drive as 512 byte sectors, while for the 5.5g(80) rockbox sees it as 1024 byte sectors?
07:38:39amiconnAll of rockbox always sees the drive as having 512 byte sectors, on all targets, except the ata driver itself

07:39:37wpyhwhat does the ata driver see, on the 5g and 5.5g ipods?
07:40:05amiconnThe ata driver queries the disk (if support for large physical sectors is compiled in), and if sectors are larger than 512 bytes, splits them on read, and combines them on write
07:40:32amiconnThis is done via a single-sector cache
07:40:54 Join Laser87 [0] (
07:41:17wpyhok, I understand the "translation" part now
07:41:34wpyhfor the 80gb drive, I saw on toshiba's website / pdf that it has 512 byte sectors
07:41:36amiconn...and it's the reason why *writing* in small chunks is slow in G5.5/80, because it means reading a 1024 byte physical sector, changing the appropriate partial 512 byte sector, and writing back 1024 bytes
07:41:37wpyhso that's false?
07:41:58amiconnThe retail version most probably supports 512 byte sectors
07:42:09amiconnThe problem is only with the oem version used in the ipod
07:42:36wpyhok... how do I check whether it's 1024 or 512 byte sectors?

I have it so that first s would be bit (1<<0), 2nd is bit (1<<1) etc... it feels a bit backwards to me but makes everything easier... does that sound OK or should it be fixed?

10:42:06stdquestion was about anti-theft system for rockbox
10:42:52stdmaybe someone know this?

10:43:51gevaertsstd: as JdGordon said, there isn't one. And I seriously doubt if that would help

10:43:56amiconnstd: That wouldn't help anything, because it's easy to circumvent
10:44:30wpyhDerPapst: Thanks. (can't use google cache in China)
10:44:45gevaertsAnd even if it weren't, a thief won't know in advance, so he will still steal it
10:45:18n1sstd: how does a password prevent someone from stealing the ipod?
10:45:24DerPapstah... then you have to wait i guess
10:45:46*n1s is slow this early :)
10:46:32DerPapstmaybe put a sticker on it? "This ipod is password protected" :P
10:46:53stdn1s: :) but maybe an unusable device will be returned. for some reward
10:47:06n1sDerPapst: but then it's the sticker working :)
10:47:22n1sstd: with subsequent arrest?
10:47:29stdi though that bootloader is the first code that receives control after startup
10:47:37B4gderanti-theft would make the thief throw it away instead of using it
10:47:40gevaertsstd: it will be sold on ebay a 'for parts'
10:47:58B4gderno gain for the original owner anyway
10:48:20n1sstd: all rockbox code on an ipod is stored on disk and is accessible through the emegency diskmode -> easy to circumvent
10:48:25B4gdernot to mention that most concepts would be worked-around quite easily anyway

12:54:12PaulJamhi, i'm trying to investigate a bug with a patch (FS #7814) where the time display always disappears after some time on my H300. I have nearly no knowledge about how this low level/driver stuff works, so please bear with me if i ask something stupid. I did some experimenting and it seems as if a call to pcf50606_read(0x02) occassionally causes that register 0x10 of the PCF50606 chip gets modified.Almost everywhere else in the SVN code where pcf50606_
12:54:12PaulJamread* or pcf50606_write* is used for the iriver coldfire targets the fuction disable_irq_save() gets called before. So my question is: what does disable_irq_save() do and what could happen if pcf50606_read() is used without that?

14:43:36wpyhdoes anyone here hack cf cards too? or understand how it works? I need some help
14:45:55wpyhthere's this pin 9 on the cf card, called the OE pin
14:46:03wpyhI mean, it carries the -OE signal
14:46:28wpyhthe datasheet for my transcend card says that it needs to be grounded, in order to go to true ide mode
14:46:40wpyhDoes anyone think it's safe to do so?
14:47:34wpyhI mean, is it safe to physically ground the pin?
14:54:48LloreanIs this Rockbox related?
14:57:44wpyhI think so, since I can't run RB on this CF card
15:00:21LloreanAre you running a new enough bootloader?
15:00:28 Quit DerDome ("Leaving.")
15:00:40 Quit Thundercloud ("Konversation terminated!")
15:01:02wpyhYes, I'm running SVN
15:01:24 Join Thundercloud [0] (
15:01:26LloreanNot build, bootloader.
15:01:36wpyhthe problem seems to be that the BL itself is not loaded... the ipod just keeps on going back to the "restore with itunes" screen
15:02:09LloreanThen that's a problem with the apple flash loader, if you never get to the Rockbox bootloader.
15:02:12wpyhI got the svn repository, so it should contain the BL right? I built it myself
15:02:34LloreanYou have to build, and install, the bootloader separately
15:03:13wpyhyes, I did that
15:03:59LloreanWell, it's irrelevant, since apparently you're never getting to Rockbox code anyway, right?
15:04:09wpyhYes and maybe
15:04:13wpyhI'm not sure
15:04:57LloreanWell, Rockbox certainly never says "Use iTunes to restore"
15:05:12wpyhI think the BL might have been loaded but somehow gets back to the flash code (is this possible?)
15:05:54***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
15:06:26LloreanIt's not really possible. What gives you cause to think that?
15:07:32wpyhBecause the first time I load an Apple Firmware onto the Firmware partition, the ipod goes into the flashing mode
15:07:43wpyhAnd it flashes successfully (at least didn't give me any errors)
15:09:10LloreanBut without installing Rockbox at all, you still get the "Use iTunes to restore" message?
15:09:17 Join LambdaCalculus37 [0] (i=44a0430f@gateway/web/ajax/
15:09:26wpyhI mean, every time I load an Apple Firmware, it does that. After it flashes itself, (I heard) that a flag is set in the Firmware partition, so it doesn't flash itself anymore
15:09:33wpyhYes, I get that message
15:09:52wpyhWas thinking whether it was caused by the second partition not formatted correctly
15:10:32LloreanYes, if it's not formatted correctly, the apple OS will give you that message
15:10:41 Quit inversions (Remote closed the connection)
15:11:08wpyhYeah, so I was wondering whether it's caused by RB or by the apple fw
15:11:48LloreanIf you don't install Rockbox, and it still happens, how could it be Rockbox's fault?
15:12:42 Quit dabujo (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
15:13:43wpyhyou mean it couldn't be caused by RB's bootloader crashing or something?
15:14:21LloreanIf Rockbox isn't installed... how could it crash?
15:14:23 Part LinusN
15:15:00wpyhI mean, there are two situations here
15:15:20JdGordonwpyh: can you connect the CF to your computer?
15:15:35wpyh1. Fresh installation of OF, it will flash the flash rom fine, then reboot and goes into the "restore with itunes " screen
15:15:56wpyh2. Patch the FW partition with the BL then reboot and it goes into the "restore with itunes" screen
15:16:04Lloreanwpyh: And thus, in 1), you know the Rockbox bootloader had nothing to do with it.
15:16:19wpyhJdGordon: Not right now. But.. would a CF card reader be fine?
15:16:19keenox does anybody know a good (preferably free) usb monitoring tool?
15:16:24LloreanSince the in-flash bootloader always happens before Rockbox's bootloader, if it fails in 1), it's going to fail in 2)
15:16:31wpyhI can probably borrow it from someone

15:16:55wpyhLlorean: that's one possibility, yes

15:17:24LloreanI don't see how you could reasonable expect the Apple bootloader to un-fail once Rockbox is installed.
15:18:54JdGordonwpyh: if you can get the CF adaptor, im pretty sure you can force ipodpatcher to install the bootloader onto it without a ipod actually connected... but if the OF flash loader wont play nice then your up shit creek...
15:19:37wpyhJdGordon: well, I can now actually install the BL already
15:19:53wpyhI was thinking whether this card needs to be forced into True IDE mode for it to work
15:20:18wpyhLlorean: ok, so it seems the problem is with the HW
15:20:29JdGordonhow do you know its installed? iirc ipodpatcher will say it worked even if it hasnt because of certain error
15:20:52wpyhWell, I ran ipodpatcher and it says it worked :p
15:21:08wpyhAnd if I run it with '-d' then it will delete the BL

15:25:28PaulJamamiconn: using disable_irq_save() before and restore_irq() after the pcf50606_read() solved the issue with the disappearing clock for me.

18:01:35LambdaCalculus37dionoea: Are you going to try to see some more about how MTP communicates with DAPs? There was a little talk yesterday about perhaps working on an MTP stack; check the logs.
18:02:03dionoeaNo, I'm mentoring a student implementing MTP support in VLC ... and I didn't have any MTP device :)
18:02:25dionoeaSo it's MTP support on the other end ... and no low level stuff since libmtp already does that for us.
18:04:37LambdaCalculus37Ahh, now I see what you're talking about:
18:04:48LambdaCalculus37I missed that little bit on the logs yesterday... ;P
18:06:25dionoeawhat does the "installer" option in configure mean? (as opposed to normal firmware and bootloader)
18:06:47dionoeaThat option doesn't exist in ipod or archos recorder builds.

18:13:00scorche|shdid you enable it?
18:13:18LambdaCalculus37I enabled USB on my iPod and c200. No problems here.

18:21:04*gevaerts sidesteps the question
18:21:22dionoeaI'll give it a try then ;)
18:21:24gevaertsUSB is pretty reliable if you don't have hubs in between (with hubs it depends)
18:21:30morghanphoenixam I reading this right? Rockbox scans the drive for tagged files rather than using the ipod database thing right? So could I just drop my files onto the hard drive and force a scan of the drive rather than do an ipod update?
18:21:35gevaertsThe sansa ata/flash driver however...
18:22:12LambdaCalculus37Yes, we don't read the iPod database at all. As long as your files are tagged properly, they'll show up in the Rockbox database.
18:22:37LambdaCalculus37And you can simply just copy files onto your iPod in the style of an external hard drive.
18:22:49morghanphoenixNice, copy only, I can get rid of all those kpod files and make a directory that actually makes a bit of sense :)
18:22:54dionoeagevaerts: other question, can rockbox expose the microSD card's content instead of the internal flash through USB?
18:23:34morghanphoenixbut it doesn't support the id3v2 in-tag jpeg album art does it?
18:23:51LambdaCalculus37If you want (and if you don't mind copying all of the music over again ;)), you can delete the iPod_Control folder from your iPod, then copy all of your music into a new folder structure of your choice.
18:23:53gevaertsdionoea: yes. Now the interesting bit : on my c250 the microSD has guaranteed data corruption after copying a few hundred MB over USB. Internal is much better
18:24:20LambdaCalculus37morghanphoenix: No, Rockbox only supports album art in bitmap format.
18:24:27gevaertsdionoea: However, c200 and e200 seem to behave differently here, so I don't know what your experiences will be
18:24:40LambdaCalculus37See this page:
18:24:55gevaertsdionoea: I saw you mentionned corruption issues on ipod earlier. What sort of corruption ?
18:24:55morghanphoenixYeah, the ipod dbase is all mp3 reencodes of ogg files, I need to redo all the files anyways.
18:25:21LambdaCalculus37morghanphoenix: Bad idea, going lossy to lossy like that. :)
18:25:37LambdaCalculus37Why not rip as FLAC and then you can transcode those to MP3?
18:25:47LambdaCalculus37Lossless to lossy is a better idea, IMHO.
18:25:48morghanphoenixyeah, all the discs are long gone, and the ipod needed mp3.
18:25:50dionoeagevaerts: the FAT partition was all messed up because of illegal filenames ... which must have been due to corruption

18:27:13morghanphoenixdon't happen to know where all those pictures from the ipod got dumped do you. I no longer have a windows computer to reset the ipod with and there are lots of pictures on there.
18:27:28LambdaCalculus37What model?
18:27:29gevaertsdionoea: hm. I wouldn't expect that sort of corruption.
18:27:51morghanphoenix5 or 5.5
18:28:36LambdaCalculus37Search through the iPod_Control folder on the root of the hard drive for any picture files, then move them all into a separate folder on your iPod (e.g. Pictures).
18:28:49morghanphoenixthere's a photos folder, but it only has a db file and a folder for thumbs with a few .ithumb files in it
18:28:52gevaertsdionoea: We had that with experimental patches, but those versions didn't appear in svn, and that was long before high speed support
18:29:31dionoeaHum, maybe it was an old weird version of rockbox runing :) (not with any usb patches though)
18:30:02dionoeaWhere is the microSD exported? Doesn't looks like /dev/sdb2 is the microSD
18:30:23dionoeaOr is that default disabled in the code due to the corruption issues?
18:30:39gevaertsNo. That's the firmware partition. microSD should be /dev/sdc
18:30:52dionoeahum ... doesn't show here
18:31:02*gevaerts guesses. gentoo or ubuntu ?

20:14:02wpyhthat means you probably didn't install Rockbox correctly
20:14:22wpyhdid you build it yourself or download a binary?
20:14:35webguest64I just downloaded the program
20:14:44domonokywebguest64: make sure you have a ".rockbox" dir in the root of your player ..
20:14:50BigBambiwebguest64: which program?
20:15:05webguest64i think i know where i went wrong
20:15:13BigBambiand missing coded means that you have not a build properly extracted to the player, only the binary
20:15:26webguest64i copied the files from .rockbox not the file
20:15:43BigBambiYou should extract the zip file directly to your player
20:16:06*bluebrother points to
20:16:09BigBambiSo that, as domonoky said, you end up with a .rockbox directory at the highest (root) level
20:16:35bluebrotherand Rockbox is not a program. It's a firmware ...

20:32:32*wpyh is slow on keyboards...
20:32:45LambdaCalculus37RButil is in C++.
20:32:53*LambdaCalculus37 looks to bluebrother for the answer
20:33:13LambdaCalculus37But Rockbox itself is plain C with some assembler for platform-specific bits.
20:33:21bluebrotherrbutil is c++ using Qt4
20:33:28wpyhI think RBUtil is in C++ purely because of the Qt dependency
20:33:49bluebrotherwell, theoretically you could write plugins in c++. But there's no stdlib available, so ...
20:33:58webguest64I am using Dev C++ as a compiler, can i use that at all

20:34:20wpyhgevaerts: uh... no?

20:34:53LambdaCalculus37webguest64: Windows or Linux?
20:35:00wpyhwebguest64: if you know c++, I think you know c
20:35:05bluebrotherwpyh: there's another reason: the "original" rbutil was based on wxwidgets and its original author, Cassandra, choose c++ for it.
20:35:21bluebrotherwpyh: you're aware that c++ is not just only a superset of c?
20:35:30gevaertswpyh: (not that I know about it...). As far as I know RBUtil follows a "standard" c++/qt design. If it were "just for qt", you could do a c-style thing with some bindings
20:35:30bluebrotherLambdaCalculus37: I think devc++ is windows only
20:35:40wpyhbluebrother: oh, I thought it was because it used Qt
20:36:00bluebrotherno we ported it to Qt later.
20:36:00LambdaCalculus37webguest64: Some pages for you: and
20:36:08wpyhwell, I heard that before, but I think C++ is more complex than C, so you can take your C++ knowledge, shape it a bit, and then start writing C code

20:50:34bluebrotherdomonoky: I figures that designer added some weird html for the longer labels −− but it also works if you use only tags.
20:51:05bluebrotherI'm going to change that (it also makes those labels use the default font size which is a bit bigger than currently used)
20:51:24domonokyjup change it, it got probably in by accident..
20:51:53bluebrotherI think it got added by using the "edit rich text" menu. I believe it was me who did that ...
