Ladies and gentlemen, ...

... we have sound on the 2nd Generation Nano.

This was a minute or so of "Date with the Night" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

The port to the 2nd Generation Nano is still in the early stages - the
only way to run code is to upload it via a USB cable after installing
the "iBuggerLoader" Notes exploit from the linux4nano project.

Currently only the bootloader build of Rockbox compiles, not Rockbox
itself, but we do have working LCD, buttons, backlight, and now audio.

The 2nd gen Nano contains a very similar processor to the Meizu M3,
which Bertrik reported audio playback on a few weeks ago - my test code
is based on that, but the 2nd gen Nano has a WM8975 audio code (the same
as the 1st gen Nano and some other supported ipods). So most of the
credit goes to him, along with "TheSeven" from the linux4nano project,
who actually got audio playing first.

I'll try and keep this forum thread up to date with progress on the port:
