Subject: Re: Battery charge problem with Rockbox in ROM on Archos Jukebox Recorder 20
From: Christopher Tomkins (

I'm not sure what exactly you mean by "full reflash" - I installed Rockbox 2.1 - presumably that
should have fixed it?

It does sound exactly like my symptoms though.

Holding F1 results in seeing the beginnings of the original ROM bootup, but then it powers off. I
know that the flash process worked okay though, as Rockbox 2.1 was working fine until I let the
batteries get completely flat :(
