Subject: key binding change for quickly exiting menus

key binding change for quickly exiting menus

From: Remo Hofer <>

Since you didn't like my feature request for a menu timeout,
I have another proposal:

I'd really like a faster and fool proved way to exit the menu.
Currently the MENU as well as the STOP key (F1 and LEFT on the
recorder) will get you one level back in the menu. I propose that
STOP (and LEFT) will keep the current behaviour, but MENU (and F1)
will get you directly to the screen (browser or wps) from where
you've called the menu in the first place.

This way the MENU key behaves a little bit more like the ON key
in the sense that it switches between two different modes (even
though the "menu" mode doesn't keep its state).

When talking about keys, I'd also like both the MENU and ON keys
to exit the ID3 screen as long as no better functions are designed
for them.

For myself, these "little" changes would almost be as usefull as a
menu timeout.

Should I file a feature request for this? Does it have a chance to
be realised? Or will it even be realised in 1.4 since the changes to
be made are hopefully very small?

Greetings Remo

BTW. Rockbox really rocks and has completely replaced the archos
firmware since persistent settings have been implemented.
Great job, thanks a lot.
