Hi Mathew, so far the fuze plus port is pretty well stable, charging
works just not the usb-boot charging (you need to be in the GUI for it
to charge). I have two fuze plus player and one is running stock and
the other is RB and I rather prefer the rb one for how quick it is.
Other things to note are that the skin support isn't as provident as
the other players but there might be one or two that might catch your
eye, second the touch controls are kind of finicky and at this point
gestures are not implemented yet so you will be doing a lot of tapping
on the touch pad. Aside from that and the recording function and maybe
some FM connectivity/calibration you should still be happy with the
result. One more thing is that when observing the battery discharge,
it's loss is just about the same rate as the original firmware. Please
take in mind that this is an unstable port and crashing/rebooting will
be an issue, though none of my data has taken a hit. I hope I have
been of some assistance.
