00:38:44deute1hey guys, i just followd the developer guide and setup my computer to compile. now i struggling at step 4
00:39:11deute1i typed which arm-elf-eabi-gcc and it says /usr/local/bin/arm-elf-eabi-gcc
00:39:28deute1so im guessing its all right?
00:40:23deute1and im wondering what to do now... i could just move forward to step 5 build... but shouldnt i program my things first...!?
00:40:42CIA-1New commit by jethead71 (r31335): Convert remaining memframe LCDs that can be convert to common code. ...
00:40:49deute1doesnt build is equal to compile?
00:41:00saratogathat means you installed the compiler
00:41:39deute1ok so now i could start program and then compile...?
00:41:49saratogathose instructions are to build rockbox, once you have the build tools installed the next step is actually compiling rockbox
00:42:24saratogai would do that first, then once you have everything working try changing things
00:42:29gevaertsYou can make modifications first of course, but I'd say compiling rockbox once first to see if everything works properly is sensible
00:43:06CIA-1r31335 build result: 5 errors, 0 warnings (jethead71 committed)
00:43:55deute1that make sense. thanks

10:47:34bluebrotheris there any reason for that?
10:47:50pamauryarf, the size of tm is platform specific I forgot that
10:48:03pamauryare you using cygwin ?
10:49:02bluebrotherno, I'm on linux

10:52:42pamauryWait a minute, I will commit a proper init
10:52:56desowinhmm, is using oscillopsope hooked to some easily accessible GIO to calibrate udelay() loop a good way to do? (that is, write an infinite loop which calls ie. udelay(10), then switches the state of that ouput, and calibrate the func to output square vale with duty cycle 50% and cycle time of 20us) is there generally any better way to approach that?

10:53:10bluebrotherthere's some #ifdef __USE_BSD in time.h on my system :)
10:53:57bluebrotherah right. The problem is that I'm cross compiling for Windows.

10:54:55pamaurydesowin: how it's implement ? loop ?
10:54:58desowinpamaury: but the biggest weak point of that is not being aware of boost/unboost
10:55:20pamaurydesowin: doesn't this SoC has a high precision counter ?
10:55:21desowinpamaury: volatile int temp=usec*(175000/200); while(temp){temp−−;}
10:56:07pamaurybluebrother: perhaps I should change that to a memset and manual assignment ?
10:56:10desowinit has few more counters than we use
10:56:25desowindunno if those are high precision actually
10:56:43bluebrotherpamaury: might make sense :)
10:57:02bluebrotherwe could of course also #ifdef _WIN32, but that might give new issues with other platforms
10:57:18bluebrotherI can try to check on OS X later, but I guess it's the same as on Linux
10:57:25desowinpamaury: but your suggestion is, to start the counter inside the udelay() and wait until it reaches certain value?
10:57:29CIA-1New commit by bluebrother (r31341): rbspeex: fix cross compiling rbspeex.dll.
10:58:07pamaurydesowin: not, high precision counter are useful free running counter, you save the value on enter and wait for it to reach the expected value (since it increments N times per usec usually)

12:11:20honschuHi, I have a SanDisk Clip Zip and would like to use rockbox with it. I have already downloaded the current svn version with git. I have built the version for this device with make zip and would like to load the bootloader now. Is there docu about how to upload this?
12:15:28WalkGoodyou might also want to read

12:16:40honschuI'll read this. Thanks.
12:17:03bertrikI don't know how it broke the them
12:17:33honschuWhat is the best way to compile "rbutil"? Just go into the directory rbutil/rbutilqt and use qmake?
12:18:42lebelliumwhen you gave me a compiled version last month, it displayed the virtual keyboard on the left top corner, at the place of the numeric volume. I can't compile anything so I can't try the patchs myself
12:22:50honschuOr let me ask in another way: What is the appropriate way of compiling rbutil?
12:23:11lebelliumbertrik : if you use my theme, you would notice this very strange bug immediately so I assume it doesn't break the theme anymore :)

13:35:43bertrikyes, is has a microsd slot
13:35:55scanfbasically, i want a budget player that can hold *all* of my music (~20gb)
13:36:25WalkGoodi've been running rockbox w/32gb card, latest builds work great
13:36:56WalkGoodusb doesn't always work for me, 1 in 5 but i'm sure that will come
13:37:48bertrikThe clip zip is basically a clip+ with an colour oled display and an RDS capable fm tuner chip, hardware-wise. The sd card driver is the exact same as the one in the clip+
13:38:32scanfdoes fm listen/record work in rockbox?
13:39:13WalkGoodpass, i haven't even tried it. i don't ever use radio on my daps
13:40:43bertrikyes, fm listen works, but there is an annoying ticking sound on the clip+. A bugfix for this has been committed recently, but I haven't tried it. I don't have the ticking on my clip zip.
13:41:54scanfwhat about record?
13:42:03bertrikI haven't tried record
13:42:11bertrikbut it's supposed to work
13:43:04scanfwell i guess the zip is the answer to my questions

17:40:08AlexEditori'm an editor of an IT mag and thinking about writing an article about rockbox. Is there any sort of statistic about the reliability of the upgrade? I.e. what chance si there to brick the player etc. Google shows up quite a bit of cries of help.
17:44:46gevaertsOne problem is that there are vastly different ideas of what "bricked" means. Some people say a player is bricked when it just needs to be reset by e.g. holding the power button for a while
17:46:06 Quit Stummi (Read error: No route to host)
17:46:25pamaurydepends on what you mean by upgrade too, if you update to SVN head, that's clearly no the same as upgrade to a stable release
17:47:41gevaertsI'd say that if you follow instructions, installing rockbox on a player that's on the list of stable ports isn't more risky than doing a "regular" firmware update
17:48:32dfktwouldn't it actually be risk-free, as long as only the rockbox firmware is updated, not the bootloader?
17:49:05*gevaerts assumes that "the upgrade" refers to "the installation of rockbox"
17:49:13dfktah, right
17:50:54AlexEditorbricked = doesn't work and can't be fixed by software means - i.e. needs dissasembly or something
17:51:12AlexEditorby upgrade i mean rockbox instead of the original fw :)
17:52:19AlexEditorbtw is there any way to try rockbox without installing? there's unofficial firmware for canon digital cameras that runs just from the sd card
17:52:37dfktthere are simulators

17:55:26gevaertsGood question :)
17:55:42AlexEditori expected like 5 people here on irc
17:56:01gevaertsWe have about 100 people with commit access. It's hard to say how many of those are active though, but I'd say 20 to 40

18:00:46AlexEditoris it more difficult to develop rb for newer devices? like touchscreens, video playback and stuff
18:02:12gevaertsIt depends. Actual hardware support probably isn't more difficult, but touchscreens obviously provide new UI challenges, and we haven't fully adapted to that yet
18:03:15***Alert Mode OFF
18:03:18gevaertsWe've had mpeg1 and mpeg2 playback for a while now. It's not integrated in the regular playback system though, so no playlists and things like that for video. We really tend to focus on audio first
18:05:24AlexEditori was also wondering, how do you actually implement different codecs on these players? I'm not an engineer, but i thought these little gadgets have some specialized hardware that is designed to play some certain codecs and it would be difficult to support, say, monkey audio. how do you accomplish that?
18:06:13AlexEditoror am i wrong and the cpus are quite generic?
18:06:31gevaertsYou used to be right :)
18:07:46gevaertsThe old Archoses only have mpeg audio (mp3 and mp2 IIRC). Newer players just do everything on a regular arm or coldfire cpu (or mips, but we don't have many of those)

18:10:06Mode"#rockbox -o funman" by funman (~fun@rockbox/developer/funman)
18:10:26gevaertsmonkeysaudio is a bit special though. It has quite high CPU requirements, especially for higher compression levels. I think we can handle -c1000 on all players (except the Archoses obviously), but we only have one single player (and it's not even on the "stable" list...) that can handle -c5000, and that's really just barely
18:10:35CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
18:10:35*gevaerts glares at funman
18:11:12AlexEditorany idea what kind of cpus are used in cheap chinese dealextreme players? :)
18:11:25funmanopen them to know
18:12:26AlexEditorand yeah, monkey audio is what surprised me most
18:12:28AlexEditorquite a feat
18:12:49desowinAlexEditor: you mean the s1mp3 ones?
18:12:54gevaertsAt least a few years ago, the *really* cheap players tended to have some sort of 8 bit CPU, a DSP for mp3 and whatever other codec they support, and a few hundred kilobytes of RAM
18:13:13bertrikmp3 or ogg take about 30 MHz on an ARM. A popular player like the sansa clip+ can easily handle that, it runs at max 240 MHz.
18:13:53AlexEditordesowin: heh i didn't know it's called that, but yeah
18:14:38bertrikgevaerts, funman I think all of our current stable targets are 32-bit right?
18:14:45gevaertsThey are, yes
18:14:56gevaertsIf is still up to date, I suspect your clip+ *may* be able to handle monkeysaudio -c4000
18:15:33gevaertsThat sort of thing tends not to be good for your battery life though :)
18:16:42AlexEditorheh just barely it seems
18:17:23AlexEditorso anyway, what are the biggest challenges when porting rb to a new device? like, if you'd want to support nano 7g or so

18:19:03gevaertsI haven't been involved with actual porting, so I can't really answer that
18:19:23desowinAlexEditor: what do you mean by "new"? newly released or not supported yet?
18:19:47bertrikIMO, in general it takes a smart person, with the right skills (reverse engineering, C and ASM knowledge), owning the new device, who also happens to have a lot of free time and a lot of perseverance
18:19:55funmanAlexEditor: i think you need great deals of patience, humility, and other people's help
18:19:59desowinAlexEditor: in some cases, the cryptography used in device is blocking factor
18:20:21funmanand an illegal copy of ida pro^W^W^W^W^W^W objdump
18:20:39bertrikin particular, newer apple players appear to have a lot of encryption stuff
18:21:02AlexEditordesowin: especially new architecture, so not like from clip to clip+, but something qiute new
18:21:14AlexEditoryeah sounds like apple
18:22:32bertrikbasically the same requirements, but more of it :)
18:23:21funmana lot of ports were "easily" made thanks to different players using the same architecture
18:23:39funman"clip" to "clip+" wasn't actually that easy. it was an 12:21 <ringo> and that one has packet loss for at least one of my HD streams … but that is lower priority

18:24:04*funman need an anti copy/paste
18:24:17funman... architecture upgrade
18:24:28bertrikthe first step is usually to find a way to run your own code on the device, like find some kind of USB boot mode, or injecting your own code into a firmware upgrade
18:24:49desowin...or tear it all apart and find JTAG
18:25:13gevaertsDeveloper-owned players tend to have been opened at least once :)
18:29:01AlexEditordoes the work often require meddling with the hardware itself?
18:29:09desowinAlexEditor: and beside finding a way to run custom code, the other big obstacle is (sometimes) having to deal with chips without publicly available datasheets
18:29:38desowinAlexEditor: for Sansa Connect, I have done a lot of hardware hacking (in fact, there still isn't purely software method to run Rockbox on it)
18:30:46AlexEditori often wonder why the companies don't just support or even use such firmware
18:31:04AlexEditori have a wi-fi router with dd-wrt and it blows the original fw out of the water
18:31:19desowinsometimes it's caused by licenses from third parties
18:31:24AlexEditorhm right
18:32:11AlexEditori guess if it's not backed by someone like google in case of android they might be afraid of lawsuits and stuff
18:32:16bertrikIn general, we don't get that much help from the DAP manufacturers
18:33:27AlexEditori'd ask how do you actually write support for unknown daps but i probably wouldn't understand the reply after the first two words, right :)
18:33:28bertrikbasically none, with perhaps two or three exceptions (AFAIK)
18:33:51desowinAlexEditor: unknown daps or unknown chips?
18:34:06AlexEditorwell, chips
18:34:15AlexEditorany kind
18:34:22desowinreverse engineer original firmware is easiest
18:35:05desowinthat is, when the manufacturer will refuse to give any docs even under NDA (or under NDA wchich prevents releasing source code)
18:35:31desowin(manufacturer = chip manufacturer, not necessary the same as DAP manufacturer)
18:37:02AlexEditorso if there's lot of encryption if the original firmware, this process becomes quite a bitch, right?
18:38:07bertrikfor the newer apple players, it took a lot of effort
18:38:33bertriksome players use encryption, but with a trivial key (like the sansa fuze+)
18:39:26desowinConnect uses RSA 2048-bit key
18:40:11bertrikEarlier sandisk sansa players (e200, c200) used encryption, but tried to hide the key in plain text in the bootloader :)
18:40:30AlexEditorso what if you can't get into the original fw?
18:41:16desowinAlexEditor: in some cases it's not really encryption as just signing
18:41:47desowinAlexEditor: which means the thing that it's preveting you from is just running unsigned (custom) code
18:42:18AlexEditorthat prevention against unsigned code can lie directly in the hardware?

18:44:50rarogI get "suspisios change request" page and don't get andy confirmation mail
18:45:22desowinAlexEditor: often it's some sort of bootloader that does the check
18:45:55AlexEditorthe original bootloader usually stays?
18:46:19desowinAlexEditor: and the thing needed is in such cases, to patch that check (this involes finding some exploitable bug and a way to overwrite the bootloader (in case of Connect it requires applying high voltage))
18:46:36AlexEditorum now i get it
18:47:16AlexEditori thought rb overwrites the whole fw including the bootloader, so i didn't understand the problem about unsigned code
18:47:58desowinAlexEditor: but well, most what I say is the case of Sansa Connect, don't assume it's the same everywhere
18:48:49AlexEditoryeah sure, i read on wiki about rockbox bootloader, so i thought it' used all the time
18:49:00AlexEditori see it's different on various players
18:49:41desowinAlexEditor: yes, it's used, but in some cases it's not really overwritting the code that's being run right after power-on due to some reasons
18:50:08desowinsuch a reason can be really hard way to debrick the player if that gets damaged
18:50:28AlexEditorwhere did you people learn this low-level stuff?
18:52:39 Quit rarog (Quit: CGI:IRC (EOF))
18:53:00desowinAlexEditor: it works something like "core bootloader" (which can handle recovery modes or something) -> Rockbox bootloader -> main firmware
18:54:56AlexEditori see
18:55:48desowinif you read into datasheets, you can sometimes find a few-stage bootloaders
18:56:49desowinwhere the first stage for example is in on-chip ROM which loads the next stage bootlaoder from NAND or something

19:01:19AlexEditori know, just kiddn'
19:02:45AlexEditorokay, back to more manageable problems, if the original firmware is encrypted, how do you learn about the hardware specs? if the data is not available that is
19:03:17desowindisassemble the player and look at the components markings
19:03:55desowinthat can give a rough idea about what to expect from it (ie. architecture)
19:04:16AlexEditorsay the architecture is sort-of known but some chips are new
19:04:58desowinAlexEditor: well, look at websites of big players like TI
19:05:42desowinas long as the chips aren't semi-custom or full-custom it shouldn't be that hard to find any info about them
19:06:09desowin(any doesn't mean datasheet)
19:07:53AlexEditorand if the chip is custom or the information is really scarce?
19:08:13desowinif the chip is custom there usually is literally no information at all
19:08:32AlexEditorcan you still work around it somehow?
19:08:35Bagderalthough custom chips are often similar to non-custom ones
19:08:44Bagderlike the ipod ones

21:53:16*amiconn usually just ignores the internal storage for music
21:54:05bertrikI do the same on my clip+ and clip zip, no music on the internal storage makes an OF database refresh much quicker
21:55:21scanfthey show up as seperate devices i suppose
21:55:39scanfi guess ill just use the 4gb internal as a flash drive storage and the 16gb sdhc for music
21:55:55WalkGoodi load card via card reader and leave card out till i boot to rb
21:56:15*gevaerts points out that the internal memory *is* a flash storage device, as is the sdhc card
21:56:50amiconngevaerts: Some of the raaa targets do handle ape -c5000 as well. The n900 even does so easily (thanks to being armv7 and using neon code), and the faster android devices should handle it too
21:57:22amiconnWhen built for >=armv6 at least, that is

22:23:46saratoga_scanf: the zip isn't handled by the installer yet
22:25:52scanfso how do i install i
22:27:36funmancheck on anythingbutipod forum
22:27:39saratoga_you need to copy a patched firmware file to the player, i think theres one on anything but ipod in the zip forum, or you can compile one yourself
22:32:03funmanwe should make a clipzip bootloader even if usb isnt fully functional
22:32:56scanfi need the OF and bootloader

22:41:39semitoneshey, I have some bad news
22:41:54semitonesmy new Sansa Clip+ broke the same way the other one did
22:42:04semitones32 mb disk, no partition table.
22:42:29scanffunman: ok
22:42:32scanfbut im getting
22:42:33scanf[ERR] Model name "clzp" unknown. Is this really a rockbox bootloader?
22:42:36scanf[ERR] Could not load bootloader-clipzip.sansa
22:42:46scanfwhen i do $ ./mkamsboot clpzt.bin bootloader-clipzip.sansa patched.bin
22:42:49semitonesIn the days before it broke, there would be a rockbox error message that flashed up as it was booting
22:42:54funmanscanf: OS ?
22:43:07funman32 or 64 bits?
22:44:16funmansemitones: can you dd the first kbyte of the device?
22:46:17semitonesfunman: I can try, can you give me a command or a link to a command
22:47:21semitonesin particular the part where I'd limit dd to 1 kb
22:48:11funmandd if=/dev/sdb count=2 | xxd
22:48:29semitoneswhat is xxd?
22:48:35funmanhex dump
22:48:48semitonesok, thanks, here it goes
22:49:42semitonesfunman: success. Do you want to see any of the output?
22:50:52semitones00003f0: 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 ................
22:51:25semitonesthat's the last line. The beginning eight numbers changes, but after the ":" the zeros are the same on each line
22:52:03desowinthe beginning is offset, so it has to change
22:52:09scanffunman: thanks it works :)
22:52:13semitonesI have to go soon, is there anything I can do to help now
22:52:17scanfnow to setup the sdhc
22:52:20semitonesor should I just come back later when I have time
22:53:04semitonesi think this might be an actual bug in rockbox since it happened twice
22:54:29semitonesalright I'm leaving. send me a memo on irc with instructions on how to help, or that i don't need too
22:54:41funmansemitones: can you put it on ?

22:59:47semitonesI did buy an extended warrantee this time. Do you think they'd be able to tell I'd installed rockbox, based on what they'd find plugging it in?
23:00:05semitonesI can tell them it just stopped working, which is true
23:01:23funmani'd tell them that exactly
23:01:37funmancan you boot OF? if not, it's broken
23:02:04semitonesit's broken. the warranty was a good investment :p
23:02:16semitonesdoes this ever happen to you funman?
23:03:33funmanit sort of happened on a clipv1 but it had suffered physical damage too
23:05:36scanfusb doesnt seem to work, file descriptor errors when trying to mount it with SDHC card in it :(
23:05:56funmani was thinking the 32MB drive was the recovery drive, but it would have been the capacity of your player (e.g. 4GB)
