01:00:55pamauryon the imx233, in theory (at least the manual claims) that you can tweak the frequency on the fly
01:01:16[Saint]How the...
01:01:32[Saint]I wonder what that would sound like.

18:26:00sansaiAhoy. It's really cool, that you implemented booting from SD for sansas. If I don't already have the newest rockbox on my dead clip+ and e2x0 (showing as 4mb and 0,5mb drives) I cannot write it to them, I guess?

19:04:09saratoga_sansai: the bootloader is stored on the internal flash, so it has to at least work well enough to get the bootloader running
19:04:20saratoga_if the flash is totally dead it won't help
19:05:39sansaiThey did come on with normal working flash before, but no luck with this for a while now. I wonder what happens with these players, as the problem is cannot be uncommon
19:06:27saratoga_they use very cheap flash and simple SD controllers, i think eventually either the flash wears out or the internal controller gets screwed up badly enough that it stops working
19:07:30saratoga_maybe there is some way to recover them, but the players don't have a real recovery mode which makes troubleshooting bad flash very hard
19:07:49saratoga_whereas on other devices you can often run code over USB
19:11:23sansaiyes, I contemplated using the flash from the e200 in the clip+, but that might not even be the problem (and I dont have the soldering skills)
19:12:53sansaiI'm thinking of using a hot air gun to warm them up, possibly having a kind of reflow?
19:13:12saratoga_yes that would probably work
19:13:30saratoga_would also be interesting to dump the contents of one and see what is on it after it fails to boot
19:14:07saratoga_although if the device wouldn't boot, there would be no obvious way to repair it even if you knew the problem
19:14:55saratoga_some of the sansas have jtag pins, although i don't know if they actually work on newer models, but in theory that might be used to repair one

19:19:01sansaiI think they both have JTAG pins. By that would probably work, you did mean swapping the flash, not using hot air, right?
19:19:45 Quit PurlingNayuki (Remote host closed the connection)
19:20:37saratoga_i don't know if swapping the flash would work (have to check the datasheets to see if the pinouts match), but hot air is a common way to desolder small chips and BGA
19:21:34 Quit JdGordon_ (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
19:23:50saratoga_by the way, tests of our old gcc vs. newer gcc:
19:25:20saratoga_ape gets slower but everything else gets a bit faster
19:30:20 Join Mihail [0] (25d48b64@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
19:33:29Mihailsaratoga_: But I think we can have problems with new gcc. Are you have clip v1? Can you try my builds I think it fails on boot and problem related to new gcc.
19:34:19saratoga_i still haven't found my clipv1, but i'll look or test on fuze/e200v1
19:34:33saratoga_but i don't think upgrading gcc is really worthwhile anyway
19:34:55saratoga_speed up is a few percent on average, and we'd waste a lot of time tracking down new bugs
19:35:09saratoga_with that time we could just optimize more code :)
19:35:46MihailYou already send clipv1 with bad battery to me?
19:36:15saratoga_crap, no i'm sorry
19:36:16saratoga_i forgot
19:36:33saratoga_i'll really try to do it on monday, just very busy these days
19:36:33MihailCan you try on it?
19:36:49saratoga_yes i think so
19:37:02saratoga_ok when i get back to my desk i'll try it

20:06:22sansaiBtw. on my working clip+ with the variable frequency build (8a0360d) some frequencies go higher than the "set" value (for example DBOP shows set 48, runs at 19 and spikes to 96). Is that safe?

22:20:47MihailIs latest dev builds don't have this problem?
22:21:41hadessWith the last build USB works fine
22:25:43Mihailok, thanks for test! It still strange as it have same USB code and mostly same for all other.
22:30:28hadessWith the last build (18fecd9) usb works fine. I will try in another computer.
22:31:24Mihailsansai: we don't use DBOP on clip+ and cllip zip so we just should ignore it for this players
