How to build firmware and other issues

From: Alex Gitelman <>

I am trying to build Rockbox for my new Recorder 20.
I checked out apps, firmware and tools. A changed all makefiles in
apps and firmware to use recorder as target.
I switched to tools and run configure, specifying recorder as target.
Then I run make.
I get ajbrec.ajz and copy it to recorder. However it does not load.
What could be the problem? Are there any instructions on how actually
do the build? Once I familiarize myself with the project I plan to
participate in it.

Here are few moments:

1. I use gcc 3.1 on cygwin. I used it to build binutils and
crosscompiler according to instructions (Thanks BTW).

2. _memcmp could not be resolved so I had to add -lc to linker options
in apps

3. I had to manually compile scramble.

4. Size of firmware I download is 78K while my compiled version is
only 61.8K. Can it be padding problem? Anyway why is such a
difference? I guess I am doing something wrong.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thank you
Best Regards
