Re: Rockbox 3.14 released! automatic update issue

  Congrats on fixing the one issue with rockbox that bothered me most.
Or perhaps I just couldn't get it to work before. I use rockbox for
podcasts and audiobooks and I had a problem with using the key lock on a
Sansa clip zip, that you really needed two hands to turn off and on the
key lock. The documentation called for an advanced key lock facility,
but I couldn't get it to work. Now it does, so I can have the key lock
and still have a pause unpause and volume control.

I couldn't figure out how to do the update automatically, even if I just
downloaded the bootinstaller as it only showed 3.13 or a development
release and not 3.14.

So I just grabbed the appropriate firmware for clip zip and unzipped and
copied over my existing .rockbox folder. Works fine.

I also like the idea of doubling battery usage on some Sansa products.
Will have to see how that goes.

Again, congratulations on the release. There still is a place for an mp3
player that doesn't require you to look at it to make it work.
