I had a quick look at the hardware, and it looks like the charging
circuit itself is pretty well protected, but the charger detection logic
is not. It may very well be that the detection is broken, but the
charging still works.
If the detection is broken, you will not be able to repair it yourself,
since you would have to replace the CPU...
Your only chance would be to nag us developers to develop the code to
handle charging in Rockbox, and have a manual procedure to tell Rockbox
that the charger is attached.
Let's hope I'm wrong about having to replace the CPU...
