I thought I'd just sum up my perception of a few current projects aiming to
produce Rockbox ports. If you have one of these players, join up and get
things going. We need skilled and interested people in every camp!
(Listed in no particular order. The mistakes and errors are most likely my
Linus and I have this player. There's some very basic code that generates a
checksum for the firmware image already in CVS, and the SDL simulator can
build an X5 simulator already. This is similar to H300 hw-wise (coldfire
There are some scans and research about its hardware in the wiki. Seems to be
similar to the X5 hw-wise.
Marcoen Hirschberg has one and works on a port. He received the Linux sources
from Toshiba, but they are of course incomplete. This uses a Samsung ARM9
PCB scans available. Resembles some of the iPds a great deal. Should make it
possible to do a port if there's any skilled person with such a unit around.
Tomasz is progressing along fine. This a 256MB flash player that uses an
Nothing has started. There's a linux source code from iriver available, but
it is far from the complete works. Some people express a wish but none has
stepped forward and did anything "real" just yet. This uses an ARM7 core with
a TI DSP built-in (DM270)
Rockbox works on it, but there's no audio. No one seems to have worked very
hard yet at figuring it out. This probably takes some dissassembly. Otherwise
this of course resembles the Color and Nano models.
iPod 3rd generation
There's work in progress. Patch is available.
iPod 4rd generation greyscale LCD
This should be "fairly simple" once the 3G port gets in, since they seem to
have the LCD code in common.
Tim Schmidt showed interest and will on the dev list to attempt to make
Rockbox run on this SCF5249 (coldfire) based player.
Seems to be mentioned every now and then by people. There's some internals
info about the H200 model in our wiki, but no "real" work has been done.
No one ever took up the work where 'jyp' left it. This port is fading away...
This player has a very different architecture (CalmRISC CPU etc).
... did I miss any? Did I forget any signification change or detail?
