Well, when the charger is plugged, you can still start Rockbox,
juste press the ON key a few seconds.
And it could work without being plugged but something about the
battery has be changed in the code because the FM Recorder does
not use the same type of battery as the others and Rockbox
thinks that it is empty when you unplug the charger, so it
shuts off.

Oh and this morning the unit had been charged during the whole
night, and when I unplugged the charger, Rockbox didn't shut
off. The battery icon was full, the info said "100%". 10
minutes later I shut the unit off and I booted it again (always
unplugged) to see if it would work, but the battery was already
empty for Rockbox...
