08:44:18Derpinahi guys
08:44:27Derpinai need help unbricking my sansa clip+
08:45:45[Saint]...randomly PMing me isn't go to do any good I'm afraid.
08:46:30Derpinawhat do I do?
08:50:09[Saint](From PM) I would advise you against using a Windows dd implementation, even though it is technically possible, it is much easier for a nove to ensure they are writing to the correct area, of the correct disc, in a linux based OS.
08:50:36[Saint]Regarding where to get the OF file, see SanDisk.
08:50:59[Saint]I would ask, though, what it is that makes you believe the device is bricked?
08:53:51[Saint]nove? *ahem* ...novice.
08:57:30Derpinawhat makes me believe the device is bricked?
08:57:46Derpinathe exact descriptions as shown in the forum posts
08:57:53 Join thegeek [0] (
08:58:08Derpinaif it aint bricked i dont know what happened
08:58:35 Join LinusN [0] (
08:58:44Derpinawell if you could provide the exact command lines for using the windows dd implementation, I believe i would have no problem with it
08:58:56Derpinacant get my hands on a linux disc right now
08:59:29Derpinawhy havent someone published a guide on unbricking the sansa with windows yet??
09:00:32[Saint]Because its a royal pain in the ass. ANd many people jump to conclusions, assuming the device is bricked, and then actually brick it, or worse, end up wiping out the host operating system on their PC.
09:02:19[Saint]If I'm going to help you through this, I would prefer it be via a livecd, to limit potential damage.
09:02:42bluebrotherone problem on Windows is drivers.
09:02:57bluebrotheron Linux you can simply use libusb to talk to a USB device if no driver exists.
09:03:04*[Saint] nods
09:03:22bluebrotheron Windows you need a driver. And if the device in recovery mode / ... decides to use differen VID / PID number (which is common) then you need a different driver
09:03:37bluebrotherso you usualy don't want to do such things on Window
09:04:29bluebrother[Saint]: you can always create a repo on github or the like and push your changes there. Though last time I said that others told me to shut up since we want people to push to gerrit (i.e. adopting our workflow, not the github one)
09:05:04bluebrotherthough I don't see much difference between working on a branch and working on a branch that lives on a different (remote) repository
09:05:23[Saint]bluebrother: Indeed. one actually looks at it. I have found this from experience.
09:05:50bluebrotherat gerrit?
09:06:03[Saint]No, no, if its on github et al.
09:06:11[Saint]...though, gerrit is piling up.
09:06:21Derpinawould any version of linux work for this?
09:06:35bluebrotheryes, unfortunately. Reminds me that there are a couple of patches I wanted to give a closer look ...
09:06:50[Saint]Derpina: yes.
09:07:01bluebrotherbut IMO it would be better to have it on some remote repository like github (or any other provider) than not having it public at all
09:07:10[Saint]antyhing that has libusb and dd, which should be, everything.
09:07:14bluebrotherbut I'll shut up now before others tell me to shut up :)
09:07:25bluebrotherOS X would work as well ;-)
09:08:50Derpinaalright, but where on sandisk should I look for the OF.lib?
09:09:16[Saint]Its the firmware file for the device. Its nothing special.
09:09:43Derpina.bin i mean
09:10:00Derpinai got on and found their firmware updater in an EXE
09:10:18Derpinaprobably automated updating so I dont i can get the .bin from there can I?
09:11:41Derpinayay! Firmware Download for All Regions - Click here to download ?
09:13:51Derpinaalright, one more thing before i get out to try and get my hands on a copy of linux
09:14:13Derpinaon the image from the AMSUnbrick page,
09:14:34Derpinatheres 1 red circle with 2 pins in it, but the caption says "Recovery pins for Clip+, use the two RED pins: "
09:14:51[Saint]assuming your PC can boot from USB, it is trivial to create a bootable USB stick.
09:14:59Derpinait meant the 2 pins in the red circle doesn it?
09:17:50Derpinagreat, then i'll be out to get myself a new usb stick
09:18:07Derpinawhen will you be on IRC until?
09:18:38[Saint]Well, unless my server falls over I'll be on indefinitely.
09:18:53[Saint]I'll be awake for several hours yet.
09:19:03[Saint]Someone can help you, if not me, though.

12:54:43snepperI'm sorry I translate into English from another language can be a bit wrong
12:54:59funmanno problem with translating
12:55:13funmanwell in this case you should ask Sandisk for help or bring your player where you bought it

13:11:56[Saint]I mean things like icons/no icons, scroll bar left, scrollbar right, scrollbar off, etc.
13:15:18[Saint]Is it better to let the skin engine draw the lists, or go the whole nine yards and specifically cater for each possible alignment possibility in the lists (which isn't that many, really) and use skinned lists?

17:42:14pilsa[ 3400.216130] usb 4-1: new full-speed USB device number 17 using uhci_hcd
17:42:50pilsa[ 3090.772142] usb 4-1: device not accepting address 9, error -71
17:44:37copperyup, classic USB errors
17:44:47copperI can only think of two things to try
17:45:14copper1) unplug every single USB device, reboot, then plug in your Clip+; try with every port if it doesn't work
17:45:48copper2) try with a different USB hub, either external, or an extra USB card if you're using a PC
17:46:08copperback when I used a PC, using a third-party USB card (PCI) did the trick
17:46:11funmanor different OS maybe (Windows)
17:46:53copperpilsa: I know next to nothing about USB, but sometimes, some USB devices can screw everything up
17:46:59pilsacopper, other usb ports dont work either ...
17:47:04pilsabut the ports are okj
17:47:14pilsai use them all the time with other devices
17:47:30pilsai have been using rovkbox for two years now
17:47:37pilsanever had this issue before
17:47:47copperI think there was also something about BIOS settings for giving USB its own IRQ (but that's chinese to me)
17:47:48funmanyou can try a current build
17:47:48pilsaonly after the upgrade to 3.13
17:48:00funmanUSB has always been flaky on those Sansa
17:48:14funmanyou just had luck with 3.12, that's all
17:48:16pilsafunman, i cant install a current build
17:48:25funmanboot the OF to make USB transfers
17:48:27pilsafunman, the device is not mounted
17:49:48pilsafunman, there is no way making file transfers ... the device is not mounted ... neither sansa frimware nor rb
17:50:00copperthen it's not Rockbox
17:50:01pilsathe trouble started with 3.13
17:50:06copperif the OF doesn't work either
17:50:20copperOF = Original Firmware (i.e. Sansa)
17:50:29funmanyeah if the OF doesn't work your device is broken
17:50:42pilsathen 3.13 broke my device
17:53:22pilsai upgraded two weeks ago using the rb utility... only since then the trouble started
17:53:23copperpilsa: try another computer if you can
17:53:29copperat work, or at some friend's house

18:14:31pilsafirst the bad news:
18:14:54pilsathe player is not mounted also on a different machine
18:15:02pilsaeeepc, ubuntu 12.04
18:15:10copperany chance it's Ubuntu's fault?
18:15:16pilsaeven worse
18:15:33pilsathe rb utility is making trouble on that box
18:15:37pilsacant start it
18:15:47pilsawhat happened?
18:16:00pilsai never ever had trouble with rb
18:16:05pilsaworked like a charm
18:16:29copperdid it work before with Ubuntu 12.04 specifically?
18:16:41pilsaplease check your builds before it kills other players
18:16:45pilsacopper, no
18:16:51pilsanot specific to 12.04
18:17:01pilsaworked also with previous versions
18:17:04copperthen how do you know it's not that particular Ubuntu release?
18:17:08copperlike a wonky kernel
18:17:29pilsabecause it definitely used to work with that release
18:17:29copperUSB problems = pretty much kernel problems
18:17:37copperok that was my question
18:17:39pilsahow could i make the upgrade
18:17:41pilsa then
18:17:50pilsacopper, kernel issue
18:18:01pilsacould make sense
18:18:05copperdid you upgrade the kernel recently?
18:18:11coppervia an automatic upgrade or something
18:18:25copperI'm not trying to place blame, just trying to narrow it down
18:18:29pilsayes, kernels are continually upgraded in ubuntu
18:18:37pilsaevery two weeks or so
18:18:44pilsai dont exactly remember
18:18:52copperI've had kernel problems before, even with minor upgrades
18:18:53pilsabut that might be an explanation
18:18:56coppersometimes a bug slips in
18:19:14copperyou should get a live CD of some other distro (or some other Ubuntu version) and try with that
18:19:22pilsaok, i wait for the next kernel update and see what happens
18:19:25copperjust to make sure it's not a kernel problem
18:19:39pilsaboth machines are ubuntu 12.04
18:19:40copperthe next kernel update could have the same, undetected problem
18:19:44copperbetter try OLDER ones
18:20:10copperand like funman said, try with a Windows PC/Laptop
18:20:16coppersurely you know someone who has one?
18:20:45pilsaok, enough said ... unless i tried a completely different system we cant proceed
18:20:47gevaertsHave you tried a different *cable*?
18:20:49pilsathanks to all
18:20:58copperthe idea is to try everything you can think of and do yourself, and if everything fails, document your problem in a bug report
18:21:04pilsaalways the same cable
18:21:15pilsadidnt try different moon phases also
18:21:28gevaertsWell, cables to break
18:21:35*gevaerts has several bad ones to choose from
18:21:38pilsaalso didnt try even and odd dates
18:21:48copperpilsa: don't get mad
18:21:56*gevaerts stops helping
18:21:57pilsaok, sorry
18:22:05copperpilsa: it's just that it's very difficult to pin-point that kind of problem
18:22:05pilsagevaerts, i apologize
18:22:17copperthe cause*
18:22:20pilsaok, thanks
18:22:39pilsai 'll do as we already said
18:22:56pilsagood bye, have a good day everybody
18:23:09copperpilsa: if that's actually a Rockbox problem that affects many people, it will be known
18:23:36copperthe idea is that you report the problem with your configuration(s)
18:23:44copperthen other people will do the same with their own configurations
18:24:04pamaurylebellium: i've got a YP-R1 now !
18:24:05gevaertsBased on what I've read, I'm prepared to bet actual money on the cable or the connector
18:24:14copperthen, either a pattern will emerge, or none will, and that's a valuable piece of information on its own
18:24:32pilsagevaerts, but battery charging still works using that cable
18:24:49copperpilsa: the cable has separate pins for charging
18:24:51pilsai think, kernel is a good candidate
18:25:08pilsadifferent cable

18:35:27saratogalooks good, want to commit?
18:36:18funmanI fear it would break sims for some unstable targets
18:36:41funmanif some test plugins need target-specific code
18:37:44saratogathey shouldn't
18:37:50saratogahmm maybe
18:37:58saratogaas far as I know we used to include them however
