01:32:02pamauryJdGordon: it will "go up" by a few pixels then back to the original position. And it happen every time you scroll. And on some list nearly empty lists, it will even jitter without touching the device
01:38:37JdGordonare you sure everything thinks it is in grid mode?
01:39:34pamaurywhat do you mean ?
01:40:09pamauryI didn't modify anything, it even happen in the root menu
01:40:44JdGordonok, why do you tihnk you're in grid mode?
01:41:42pamaurybecause it behaves exactly like in grid mode: depending on where you touch the screen it either goes up or down one element, select the element or goes back to the previous menu
01:44:24JdGordonyou dont have gdb on target do you? :p
01:46:07pamauryI could check if it also happen in the simulator though
01:48:26pamaurybut I haven't add the stuff to successfully build the simulator :-/ I'll try tomorrow, thanks for your help

10:35:55PaulFertserHi there :) I have an old cool sansa e200 here and i wonder what's the reason behind forcing to load OF when plugged in with usb inserted now that there's nice and stable support for USB in Rockbox itself?
10:42:07PaulFertserBut nowadays it looks like if i flash the latest bootloader to it i'll have it waiting for me to unplug it from the usb because it would automatically get into bootloader usb mode, right?
10:43:28pixelmawith an up-to-date bootloader you aren't forced and if you want to charge only you can hold any button while plugging USB which should be described in our manual
10:43:44bertrikAs far as I know, the bootloader should boot to rockbox, unless you hold a special button
10:44:44PaulFertserI'm reading;a=blob;f=bootloader/main-pp.c;h=28aee9cf90b6138415e484ccdf401b9b4166dc2c;hb=HEAD
10:45:39 Part Carcino ("I'm a happy Miranda IM user! Get it here:")
10:46:35PaulFertserbertrik: indeed, but what if i turn the device on while having it plugged into a pc?
10:48:05 Join ender` [0] (
10:48:16bertrikI don't know, sounds like a pretty hard to reach state anyway, since the device turns on by itself the moment you plug it in AFAIK
10:48:18PaulFertserI guess i'd get dropped to "bootloader usb mode" but what'd be the benefit of that for me comparing to loading full rockbox?
10:48:49PaulFertserbertrik: it turns on, the bootloader starts, sees usb connection present, tries negotiating with the host, succeeds, stucks in bootloader usb mode.
10:48:54PaulFertserbertrik: if i'm reading the sources correctly.

11:18:38[Saint]USB when your rockbox image is trashed.
11:19:35[Saint]It basically allows you an opportunity to mount and fix errors with just the bootloader itself, without having to boot the OF.
11:19:40bertrik[Saint], why not just boot to the OF in that case?
11:20:34[Saint]iPods have this enabled too...when they could (in theory {afaik}) just boot the OF too.
11:20:49bertrikI don't see the point of a bootloader USB mode to be honest
11:21:02[Saint]Many targets have it now.
11:21:11bertrikjust makes the bootloader more complicated
11:21:14[Saint]Its not entirely useless, but, I agree.
11:30:10PaulFertser[Saint]: i do not see any point in having that bootloader usb mode either, OF is supposed to be untrashable anyway, and it's not a hassle to boot it in case of emergency.
11:30:35[Saint]Its not anything to do with the OF.
11:30:47[Saint]So, we can disregard that.
11:31:07[Saint](fwiw, its also *very* possible to trash the OF)
11:31:34PaulFertser[Saint]: but following the official instructions, unlikely, right?
11:32:36[Saint]Picture this plug USB, but, "Oh Noes! my .rockbox folder is entirely f****d/trashed/missing/etc", what do you do? Boot the OF and transfer a new one...well, you could do that, or, it could just mount right then and let you do it in the bootloader.
11:32:54PaulFertser[Saint]: i think this bootloader usb mode also complicates charging a flat battery: if one's device is depleted and he plugs it to usb to charge he's getting stuck in the bootloader usb mode and has to rely on rarely used BL charging code instead of the widely tested rockbox charging code, right?

11:33:36 Quit stoffel (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
11:34:17PaulFertser[Saint]: and yet it has to take that 100/500mA limits into account, program the PMU chip properly etc, plenty of opportunities to get it wrong.
11:35:02[Saint]And plenty of people to review it, and some exceptionally smart individuals that coded it in the first place.
11:35:16[Saint]The time to raise issues about this was *many* moons ago ;)
11:35:19 Join leavittx [0] (~leavittx@
11:36:23[Saint]As long as the bootloader still fits where its supposed to in space constrained targets, I really don't see the problem if it lights up an LED array to spell out "help! I'm broken, fix me!"
11:36:53PaulFertser[Saint]: basically confirms my concerns
11:37:58[Saint]That has pretty much nothing to do with bootloader USB or charging.
11:38:04[Saint]But rather safe shutdown limit.
11:38:27[Saint]Its likely the battery is just on its way out too...that's the other possibility.
11:39:22PaulFertser[Saint]: i'd appreciate if you explained to me why this issue is not the problem with charging in bootloader usb mode that wouldn't exist if the bootloader usb mode didn't exist.
11:39:58[Saint]Its an issue with the value (potentially) that is deemed "safe" for a critically low battery.
11:40:20[Saint]If it is so low that it cannot power the device to a state where it can charge, *that* is the problem.
11:40:47[Saint]It could also just be a case a a bad battery.
11:40:49PaulFertserAnd yet it can boot OF?
11:41:10PaulFertser"Currently rockbox doesn't charge when in bootloader USB mode. The solution is to hold volume down on plug so that it boots to the OF and charge. This should be fixed in the next version of the bootloader."
11:41:29[Saint]Where does it say he booted the OF?
11:42:13PaulFertserThat's what pamaury suggested as a workaround for a known issue.
11:43:21[Saint]He ran down the battery to a level where rockbox decided that it needed to shutdown, if indeed after that it couldn't power itself to a point where it could even get the bootloader to a point where the charging code could take over *that* is the problem, IMO.
11:44:52 Join jae [0] (
11:45:37[Saint]The critical battery limit should allow a full boot, even several.
11:45:50[Saint]Its not even as though it has a disk to spin up.
11:46:21[Saint]So that tells me that its either set too low, or the battery is bad in this instance.
11:47:49 Quit z180 (Ping timeout: 244 seconds)
11:47:57[Saint]Take my iPod 4G with a big clunky old HDD for instance, when Rockbox decides the battery is so low it needs to shut down...its still perfectly capable of powering itself to a point where it can charge itself. This is intentional.
11:47:58PaulFertserWhat if his device was gathering dirt for several months after that, it'd have depleted his battery all right.
11:48:53[Saint]Well, that would count as neglect, and if you really expected a deep discharged battery to boot anything, you'd be rather unpleasantly surprised.
11:49:08[Saint]deep discherge == bad :)
11:50:13pamauryI've enabled charging in usb mode, I can't remember if jean-louis updated the bootloader image on the wiki
11:50:46pamaurybut we haven't released a new official bootloader yet
11:51:09[Saint]pamaury: with the flyspray entry I right in thinking that might indicate the safe shutdown limit is too low?
11:51:22[Saint](or possibly just a bad battery)
11:52:18pamaurywhy too low ?
11:52:31[Saint]I mean, if its read as written, and it shut down and then couldn't power itself up to get to a point where it could charge itself...
11:53:36PaulFertserpamaury: my question is what benefits the bootloader usb mode brings if one is still able to boot OF in case he damaged his .rockbox install while i see potential pitfalls of this mandatory bootloader usb mode e.g. caring about the charging inside the BL itself which shouldn't have been necessary if it booted straight to rockbox.
11:53:40[Saint]Even HDD targets can spin up the disk for long enough to boot into Rockbox and start charging after a low battery shutdown.
11:53:52[Saint]So I'm wondering if its set too low in this instance.
11:55:22[Saint]PaulFertser: Can you explain how one boots into Rockbox with a damaged binary?
11:55:30[Saint](or did you word that incorrectly?)
11:56:11PaulFertser[Saint]: the PMU chip is supposed to have sensible defaults so it should be able to boot the BL and then the BL should be able to boot Rockbox which should enable charging all right.
11:56:36PaulFertserThe problem is when you're stuck in BL with disabled (or wrong) charging settings.
11:56:45PaulFertserAnd that issue is not a single report of a similar problem.
11:56:58[Saint]but, you said "in case he damaged his .rockbox install" *and* "caring about the charging inside the BL itself which shouldn't have been necessary if it booted straight to rockbox"
11:57:07[Saint]those two don't gel together.
11:57:42[Saint]If the .rockbox binary is damaged, it *won't* boot into Rockbox...that's the point.
11:58:01PaulFertser[Saint]: then the user would press the key to boot into OF which has charging code all right.
11:58:38[Saint] could charge via the bootloader, and use bootloader USB, and not require any intervention (much cleaner)
11:58:58PaulFertserMuch more code, much more chances of something being broken.
11:59:20PaulFertserAnd this kind of brokenness was actually observed on several devices.
11:59:40[Saint]I go back to my scenario of "as long as it does what its supposed to, and fits where it should, I don't care if it whilstles dixie while doin git"
12:00:09pamaurymy opinion on that is that's it not a real problem. The fuze+ is in development, people should now that such things could happen. This problem in particular is fixed if one uses the latest bootloader image I think. The bl usb mode is useful for development and allows you to completely bypass the OF even when the rockbox binary is broken
12:00:22[Saint]and that, yes.
12:00:37[Saint]Things break, its a risk you take installing experimental firmware.
12:01:02pamauryyou can't really break your device anyway
12:03:43[Saint]iiuc, the Fuze+ isn't even classed as "unusable" yet, is it?
12:03:58pamauryI think it is
12:04:07pamauryerr no, it's unstable
12:04:10PaulFertserpamaury: ok, i see, thanks for the clarificiation. Anyway the released binaries for e200 are so old that the bootloader usb mode is not enabled there :) folks in here tried to convince me that's the current official behaviour while i was looking at the code and clearly seeing it's not :)
12:04:14[Saint]If it is, the main page needs updating.

12:06:21pamauryThere is one thing on which you are right: recovering from this situation is a bit tricky and we should probably have some tool to do it on linux *and* windows (in RbUtil for example)
12:06:22[Saint]PaulFertser: whether intentional or not, the "official" behaviour is that of what is released, I would say.
12:07:06pamauryPaulFertser: are you running bootloader v9 from the wiki page ?
12:07:08PaulFertser[Saint]: 2009 is not relevant.
12:07:32PaulFertserpamaury: no, those folks are running
12:07:46PaulFertserAnd it's the same file mentioned in sansapatcher sources btw
12:08:02[Saint]Why so? If that's the last bootloader released, that's "the official bootloader"..whether its intentional or not.
12:08:04*pamaury missed the point where we switched to e200
12:09:27[Saint]As did I, actually. I was linked to concerns regarding Fuze+

12:15:00[Saint]Releases are expected to work, sure. Current code may be broken in many wide and varied fashions.
12:15:04pamaurythe behaviour of bootloader is the one of released binaries, it has always been because bootloader are delicate pieces of code, HEAD is basically irrelevant for bootloaders
12:15:34bertrikI'd expect HEAD to represent the state-of-the-art code, to be used for the next release

12:16:16[Saint]But we know that isn't the case, as, things break. Intentional or not.
12:16:31pamauryat some point we don't change the bootloaders, most targets did not get a bootloader release in a while, perhaps the current code would not even work
12:16:43bertrikthen why the hell do we commit stuff for bootloaders?
12:16:48PaulFertser[Saint]: i gave the git hash i'm talking about early into the talk anyway, so i can't understand what's wrong with asking specific questions mentioning specific code revision.
12:16:52AlexPBut if a new bootloader releße was needed, it would come from HEAD
12:17:02AlexPIf that is currently broken, irt would be fixed first

16:04:41bluebrotherok. Storing it on some FAT32 formatted drive would have been a possible explanation.
16:05:24*bluebrother is out of ideas
16:05:44bluebrotheryou can of course always compile it yourself. Or use a Windows machine. Or install manually.
16:08:05Zx432None are fat32
16:08:27Zx432I stored it on the same one that the OS is using.

22:38:26gevaertsOK, theme installation from rockbox utility should be working again
22:38:55saratoga_you should tell that guy on the forums who was interested about it
22:39:09AlexPgevaerts: Good work!
22:39:12AlexPWhat was up?

22:58:10saratoga_he should probably get it anyway though since so much of that port is his work and he continues to maintain it
23:04:32lebelliumyes sure he wants the FM radio to be included, finally. As soon as he's done with his university work, he'll work again on the port :à
23:09:24ZambeziI have a Cowon C2, not supported by Rockbox so far. Can anyone compare improvements on other Cowon-players?
23:11:46ZambeziD2 is supported so I have hopes.
23:12:13bluebrothergevaerts: nice. Wasn't aware you have access to that box :)
23:12:48gevaertsbluebrother: I suddenly remembered that scorche gave me access a while ago to look at a preformance issue

23:16:20ZambeziCan anyone compare improvments on Cowon stock firmware and Rockbox on Rockbox-supported model? Cause somethings on stock firmware on Cowon C2 is quite annoying. Like locked screen and you can still adjust the volume.
23:17:04Zambezigevaerts: Better?
23:19:44gevaertsZambezi: yes. I can't really answer, I'm not too familiar with the D2. I do know several people have asked to allow changing volume while on hold though :) Glad to see not everyone agrees that that's a good idea
23:22:16Zambezigevaerts: The touch screen is responding abit odd, but I bought it mostly because my old broke and I wanted one with SD-card. Sony had a nice without the SD-card and without FLAC-support. No go.
23:22:29FOADWhat, there's been progress on the D2?
23:22:54gevaertsFOAD: not really, no
23:23:27saratoga_i committed charging detection for the D2+ a while back based on a patch someone sent in
23:23:35saratoga_i think thats the only work on the d2 in recent years
23:23:36ZambeziFOAD: We spoke about the stock firmware.
23:23:50FOADYeah well I just got triggered by "D2". :P
23:24:17ZambeziFOAD: I assume you got one your self.
23:24:18FOADWhat's a good modern player that I can enjoy Rockbox on? One that's nothing to do with *pple.
23:24:21FOADI do.
23:25:02ZambeziFOAD: I like the way it handle firmware upgrade. Just transfer, restart.
23:25:48FOADAll I ever did with it was get the D2+ firmware on it really.
23:26:02gevaertsZambezi: nearly all semi-recent players do that
23:26:36ZambeziFOAD: What's better with D2+ compare to D2 firmware?
23:26:42FOADI got it because it seemed there was some decent work on the Rockbox D2 front being done at the time. But it never panned out really.
23:26:58FOADNot much really. I never felt much of a difference at all. :)
23:28:09ZambeziFOAD: I don't like the connection. A proper USB-mini/micro/whatever would be much better.
23:28:38ZambeziI'm beat today. I really need to go to bed. Night peeps!
23:29:08FOADZambezi: huh? My D2's got a USB mini port.
