RE: Rombox on 2.5?

I still boot into the original firmware when my batteries are extremely low. The original firmware charges the battery fine, but
Rockbox seems to try to continuously spinup the drive while it doesn't have enough power. It may be charging, but the constant
clicking from the drive is annoying.

Am I missing a way to boot up Rockbox so it only tries to charge the batteries?

Does bootbox work yet?
I can't see any reason why I would want to keep the original firmware, I havn't used it since I found Rockbox.

The problem is that we won't be keeping "developer builds" of older

daily builds.

I think BootBox is the way to go here. If you want Rockbox running from

ROM, you'd have to give up the original firmware.
