Subject: AAC playback broken, Apple data wiped

AAC playback broken, Apple data wiped

From: Woody Anna Dresner <>

I'm using the March 5 daily build and Onj's Kate voice from March 2
(the problem I'm reporting started while I was using the March 2
daily build; I tried installing the March 5 one after the problem
happened, hoping the bug had been fixed in the meantime). AAC
playback is broken. If I try to play an AAC file, "Data abort" is
displayed, and I can't power down my iPod Nano. And since it's set
to resume on startup, every time I try to start the iPod in Rockbox,
it tries to play that AAC file and crashes.

I was able to shut it down by switching to the Apple firmware, but
when I did, I discovered that all my settings and all the music and
Audible books I had saved in the Apple database were gone. I'm not
sure what led to the erasure of these settings and tracks; I'm using
the older bootloader, and I tried switching Hold on during a reset to
wipe out my Rockbox settings so Resume on Startup would be turned off
and I could power down properly from within Rockbox. However, those
settings weren't removed - just the Apple ones.

Does anyone have any suggestions for getting out of the Resume on
Startup loop? And I hope AAC playback can be fixed soon; it worked
beautifully for months.
