Hello there,

When I reboot my Rockboxed iPod nano second generation, it changes the time +5 hours.

Does anyone know why this can be? Thanks

Neither of the tools, ipodpatcher or Rockbox Utility 1.4.0, work on macOS Catalina.

Catalina removed 32bit support.

Using ipodpatcher generates the following error:

bash-3.2$ ./ipodpatcher
bash: ./ipodpatcher: Bad CPU type in executable

And Rockbox Utility has a white circle with a line through it indicating that it does not work with this version of the OS.

13196BugsUser InterfaceVery LowXduoo X3ii: album art doesn't show for some jpgs in con...2020-05-08Johannes Rauh21 Task Description

I store the album art by putting a folder.jpg file in the album's directory.
Any WPS on other players shows the cover pictures properly if album art is enabled in the theme.

I am aware of caveats like progressive jpgs, that are not supported by RB.

In the attached zip file, there are four directories with a folder.jpg file and a free opus file for demonstration purposes.

All pictures show up fine on my Sansa E200 (v1) using CabbieV2 or lebellium_Samsung-like.
However, on my XduOO x3ii the pictures are not displayed for the examples 1 - 3, but show for example 4.

None of the jpgs are progressive and I cannot figure out a difference between 1-3 and 4.

I don't know how to debug this further myself, but would be happy doing any furter experiments.

This is true for the current dev builds, e.g. b450707955.

13193PatchesConfigurationVery LowAdd option to disable settings reset on startup2020-04-01Stefan Ott12 Task Description

I would like to run my iPod with its keypad locked all the time, thus I wrote a little patch to an option to disable the settings reset during startup regardless of the hold button's position.

You will find the patch attached to this message. I'm not entirely convinced by the name of the new option (or my wording in general) so if you have a better idea, feel free to rename things.

13188BugsConfigurationVery LowQuickscreen entries cannot be removed2020-02-03Ramon Fischer Task Description

Reported Version: 3.15 not 3.14


I am using a "SanDisk Sansa Clip+" and it seems that currently it is not possible to remove quickscreen entries when they are set, you can only overwrite them.

In the manual chapter "3.15 Quick Screen" has to be adapted, once this function has been implemented.

It would be very nice to have this possibility!

13166BugsCodecsVery LowiRiver H300 ALAC codec crashing (CPU frequency switchin...2018-12-28Robert Palmer Task Description

Please refer to forum post for full exchange:,52518.0.html

In summary playing ALAC will crash the unit, other codecs not as much. My reasoning is (as contained in the forum post):

Converting some of my ALAC collection to FLAC to test has given excellent results = no crashes. I am suspicious of the ALAC decoder; watching the VIEW BUFFERING THREAD there seems to be consistency:

OGG/MP3/FLAC/WAV: CPU Frequency goes up to 124 until pcm: becomes full, then drops to 45mhz and pcm: hovers (it is always active) near the top of 100%. Upon track change the cycle starts again (124mhz until pcm: becomes full). I don't seem to get crashes.

ALAC: CPU Frequency goes up to 124 until pcm: becomes full, then drops to 45mhz and pcm: quickly goes down (takes about 2 seconds) to 75%, then cpu switches to 124mhz to get pcm: back up to 100%. This goes on constantly (cpu high - low cycle) while a single track/file is playing. I am now believing this cpu going up and down constantly gives me the crashes. Note on crashes: I don't know when they will happen, sometimes after a minute or two, sometime after 10 minutes , there is no pattern I can tell.

13161BugsFM TunerVery LowiPod FM Remote not working2018-07-29 Henk Task Description

I have an iPod 4G Grayscale (model A1059) running Rockbox 3.14 with an Apple FM remote (model A1187). The remote part works ok (Play/Select and Fwd/Rev buttons work - volume control is separate due to it being connected to the line out, but works).

However, the radio menu does not show up in the main menu when connected. Not when I boot with the remote connected, not when I connect it after booting, and not if I go to a different menu and then back.

In the debugging menu, it simply says that the FM tuner hardware is not found.

I am sure that this used to work at some point. Are there known regressions?

13159BugsCodecsVery Lowrockbox hangs on certain m4a files2018-07-03Solomon Peachy4 Task Description

I primarily use my unit for audio books while driving, but the latest build (as I write this) won't play one of the files properly. It tries to start, stuck at 0:00. Trying to seek hangs the player altogether, requiring a hard restart.

I've recreated this problem on a flaky Clip+ and an AGPTek Rocker.

The 'file' tool identifies it as: ISO Media, MP4 v2 [ISO 14496-14]

Here's what mplayer has to say (while playing it back properly):

Hey there!
I just upgraded my Sansa Clip Zip from 3.13 to 3.14. I always used the ALiEn theme on 3.13. After upgrading to 3.14 it unfortunately doesn't work any longer. On the WPS it's only showing text now and not the graphics and the alien anymore. After downgrading to 3.13 the same theme file works without problems again.
Is there a way to fix this for 3.14? I have unfortunately no idea about theming.

13142BugsDriversVery LowSD card not recognized2017-12-26Florian Snow Task Description

I use a 64 GB MicroSD card in my Clip Zip and the stock firmware recognizes it. Rockbox recognizes it in the debug disk info screen and when connected to a computer via USB, I can read and write it through rockbox. However, when I try to access it or when I just check the regular rockbox info, rockbox does not show the SD card, nor can I play music from it.

The bug is also present in the current development version and is overall very similar to this one:

I tried reinstalling rockbox and reformatting the SD card, but nothing worked.

13141BugsPluginsVery LowImageviewer cannot render JPEGs properly with a 1x2,1x2...2017-12-20Luke Spangler1 Task Description

Bug exists in the DEV builds for, at least, Sansa Clip+, Sansa Fuze+, and iPod Video for at least a year, although I cannot confirm this as I've only just now tracked down the problem. The issue was discovered because imagemagick occasionally selects 1x2,1x2,1x2 as the chroma sampling factor when converting an image.

To recreate this bug, convert any image using imagemagick to a JPEG with that chroma sampling factor and attempt to view it in Rockbox. What you will see is a nonsensical image to the size of the original JPEG. Any desktop image viewer, like eyeofgnome, renders the picture correctly.

I've also included a sample Rockbox logo generated in the faulty fashion along with this bug. To create it, run this command in a Unix-like with imagemagick and curl installed: 'curl -J -L "" | convert - -sampling-factor 1x2,1x2,1x2 -quality 100 folder.jpg'

13136BugsPlaylistsVery LowPlaylist position not saved on shutdown when using rela...2017-11-13Dean Tersigni21 Task Description

Ordinarily, when Rockbox is shut off and turned back on, it will remember the position in the last-played song, and begin playing from where you left off. However, in the latest build, Rockbox doesn't remember the last track that was playing if the file used a relative path. This happens on every version of 3.14 including the current daily build (2017-11-13).

Here is how the error can be reproduced:

Have a folder with two songs. Then, in the parent folder, create two m3u playlists named "absolute.m3u" and "relative.m3u".

In the absolute.m3u playlist, add the following lines:

In the relative.m3u playlist, add the following lines:

To see expected behavior:

1.) Open the files list, and run absolute.m3u and song1.ogg begins playing.
2.) Push right to start song2.ogg. Let it play a few seconds in.
3.) Turn off your device by pressing power.
4.) Turn on your device with the power button.
5.) song2.ogg continues to play the same song at the same location as when it was shut off.

To reproduce the bug:

1.) Open the files list, and run relative.m3u and song 1 begins playing.
2.) Push right to start song2.ogg. Let it play a few seconds in.
3.) Turn off your device by pressing power.
4.) Turn on your device with the power button.
5.) song1.ogg plays from the very beginning.

The file format of the songs doesn't seem to matter (I've tested ogg and mp3).

13132BugsRecordingVery LowIdle power-off in recorder causes loss of settings and ...2017-10-06Travis Evans Task Description

Daily build c6d5cd7-170907

An idle power off can occur in recording mode. When it does, data loss occurs. This has already bitten me a few times.

Steps to reproduce (on battery, not charging):
1. Execute Settings > Manage Settings > Reset Settings
2. Set Settings > General Settings > Startup/Shutdown > Idle Poweroff to 1 minute
3. Reboot
4. Go to Recording mode
5. Note current Volume and Gain settings and then change them to something else and note the new settings. Don't start a recording; just leave it in “stop” mode (*not* record or record-pause).
6. Wait for automatic power off
7. Power back on and check recorder settings

Expected: Settings are what they were after being changed.
Actual: Settings reverted to what they were on boot.

This can cause the loss of entire recordings, too:

8. Go back to Recording mode.
9. Wait until just before Rockbox would power off, then start a recording (if the display goes to sleep, it comes back on a bit before powering off; start the recording as soon as it comes back on).

Expected: Recording is done as usual
Actual: Rockbox powers off anyway, without warning, less than a minute into the recording. The recording is lost (or if the file is there, it's unplayable; maybe this depends on the recording format used).

13122BugsMusic playbackVery LowAnnoying beeps when playing ogg vorbis files2017-07-04Jérémy Caruso Task Description

After upgrading from 3.13 to 3.14, when playing most of the ogg vorbis files in my library, a "beeping" sound sporadically occurs.

The sound is random (2 consecutive playbacks of the same track will beep on the same time).

All the files played fine with 3.13.
MP3 files play just fine (I have not tested other formats yet).

Possibly interesting facts :
Vorbis files with a lower bitrate (<100kpbs) seem to be less subject to this beep.
It seems beep never occurs when screen is on.

13118BugsMusic playbackVery LowIncorrect playback position when seeking AAC files down...2017-05-31R O Task Description

I downloaded this: using the youtube-dl python program. The file plays and seeks correctly in foobar2000 and MPC-HC. But, on my clip+, whether I seek 10 seconds or 10 minutes into the file, it ends up playing a position of the file previous to the one displayed. For example, if I seek 50 seconds forward from the beginning, it will play the file from the start, while the screen still displays as if it's playing from 50 seconds onwards. Seeking to the end of the file will have it play a section from about 2 minutes earlier than it should be, while the time display and music will continue until 1:14:20, with the file actually being 1:12:46.

I did not hear the files being played slower than they should be, so it seems it's only an issue when seeking.

I've confirmed this happens on every AAC file downloaded by youtube-dl, and that re-encoding the same file to AAC using NERO encoder makes the problem dissapear.

13117BugsGamesVery LowPuzzles: Crash/freeze in sgt-bridges on Clip Zip when s...2017-05-09Linton Dawe1 Task Description

On the Sansa Clip Zip, a crash occurs in the sgt-bridges plugin when starting a new game, either by selecting New Game from the Bridges Menu or by choosing any option from the Game Type menu. The crash is intermittent, but seems to occur on average at least a third of the time a new game is started.

To reproduce reliably, simply select an option from the Game Type menu, and if the player does not crash, exit back to the Bridges Menu (press Power). Then select the next Game Type and repeat. In my experience, you will invariably have a crashed player before you reach the end of the list.

This crash occurs on a Clip Zip player with the 3.14 release and on the Clip Zip simulator, build 4f03c56 (the latest build on Rasher's site). The simulator simply quits when a crash occurs.

On the actual player, the crash can be either a complete freeze (non-responsive to all buttons) with the puzzle displayed (most common), or the following error:

Data abort at 00
FSR 0x8
(domain 0, fault
address 0xD6BAD6
pc:0005AF70 sp:3
bt end

The crash would appear to be target dependent as it does not occur on the Sansa e200 (v1) (also using 3.14).

13108BugsMusic playbackVery LowRandom crashes when playing music2017-03-16somedude16 Task Description

For a couple of months my Sansa Fuze v2 has been crashing randomly when playing music. Most of the time I just get a white screen with an error message. The last message I got was :

'undefined instruction at 0006DC8C'

(I think that last number varies at each crash)

This didn't happen with v3.13, but it's been happening with every daily build I've tested IIRC.

It doesn't happen very often so it's hard to reproduce. I listen to music in public transports about twice a day and this happens not more than once a week. It seems to happen more often when the battery is low (less than 10%). It generally happens early in a playback session, when the first or second track is played.

Sometimes I don't get a white screen, but the program freezes and some parts of the interface are surrounded with white frames. I don't know if it's the same bug or if it's unrelated.

Note that I'm always listening to music on a microSD card, and I haven't tried on the main memory.

PS: I chose "Sansa Fuze+" in the OS list because I couldn't find Sansa Fuse v2.

13106BugsMusic playbackVery LowResume Playback broken on iPod Classic2017-02-17Tony Carter3 Task Description

After upgrading from "Version: 33856d9-161111" to "Version: 6436c6e-170211" Resume Playback from the main menu does not work. Here are the steps taken to verify the problem:

Running Version: 6436c6e-170211… Reset config
Using default settings, enabled Shuffle via Shortcuts
Started playlist; track identified as 1 of 5330
Skipped ahead to the 5th track
Paused @ 1:01
Forced shutdown
Enabled Hold switch
Waited ~1 min., then booted via disengaging Hold switch
Clicked Resume Playback… resumed on the same first track (1 of 5330)
This behavior occurred every time I attempted to Resume Playback.

Restored previous version (Version: 33856d9-161111)
Reset Settings
Using default settings, enabled Shuffle via Shortcuts
Started playlist; track identified as 1 of 5330
Skipped ahead to the 5th track
Paused @ 1:01
Forced shutdown
Enabled Hold switch
Waited ~1 min., then booted via disengaging Hold switch
Clicked Resume Playback… resumed on the fifth track @ 1:01

FWIW: No Bookmarking used (never have). Database not initialized (never use it).

This used to work but don't anymore. I have no idea when regression happen'd. In later snapshots Random Folder Advance list all directories on the player regardless. I have a /.rockbox/folder_advance_dir.txt with following content:


Previously (way back?) only these two directories and all directories within them where scanned as should be according to the manual page 179. But these days all directories on unit are always listed after a scan. I don't have any further clues.

Bug description:
When plugging any dummy plastic or a non supported SD card, the device freezes and displays a white screen with a "PANIC" error message.
Plugging a standard SD card works fine.
To restore the system, you have to use a paper clip to do a hardware reset and turn the device on again.

RBUtil V1.4.0
git version 2a2800b528010320ca504a39106806ec21f0220 (2016-10-12)

rbutil fails to build bootloader. Tested for Iriver H1x0 and H3x0 platforms.

Progress window shows:

Adding bootloader firmware file
Error in patching: reading firmware failed

Terminal output shows:

[httpget.cpp:230 INFO] Get URI

[rockboxinfo.cpp:27 INFO] Getting version info from rockbox-info.txt

Fired up gdb and debugged the git 2a2800b5280103… build:

The failure is in function mkboot_iriver in mkboot.c line 98:
Line 98:

  i = fread(image+16, 1, len, f);

len is calculated as 2636272.
But file size of /tmp/qt_temp.U16458 is only 2621440, resulting in a short read of 2621424 bytes. So error condition “i < len” fires and function returns without building bootloader.

I tested this on two different gentoo systems. It worked on one, but failed on the other. Both are more or less up to date, but have one significant difference: 32bit vs 64bit system.

The system that did compile and run perfectly uses:
gcc i686-pc-linux-gnu-4.9.4 (len=2636272, file size=2637824)
The system that failed uses:
gcc x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-4.9.3 (len=2636272, file size=2621440)

So, the failing rbutil creates a temporary file that is too short. I didn’t debug deeper to find out why.


13083BugsMusic playbackVery LowIpod Classic playback jumping2016-09-16Emanuel8 Task Description

I've been using the development version of Rockbox in my ipod classic 6th generation for about two years I think, but from some time, like a month or two, I'm experiencing playback issues as the track I'm listening suddenly skip forward or backward, or even jump for a few seconds on another mp3 file inside the ipod I was just listening before. I don't think is a ipod issue because I can listen the file inside the ipod with my computer player without problems.

There some way I can check older development revisions for the classic? It appears that it doesn't show in the dev build link on the site because is not fully supported. Thanks

I'm having a shutdown issue after using my 6G ipod Classic in the car. After I have turned off the car the ipod will automatically enter a paused state but when i either hold play to shutdown or wait for the idle shutdown it will hang showing the shutting down… text and never turn off. when I manually shutdown the ipod (hold play button) down after using the ipod in the car you can hear the HD spin up and after 4-5 second hear the HD park (click) but still feel the ipod vibrating like the HD is still spinning, the text shutting down… is shown and just stays there and drains the battery. the only way to shut it down it hold menu and select.

In car is a Dension gateway G300 (ipod is connected and controlled with a dock cable, can use car controls to change tracks on ipod apple firmware and rockbox)

13077BugsUser InterfaceVery LowVoiced menus doesn't work in FM mode2016-07-31Nicolás Task Description

Rockbox doesn't speak in the FM mode with voice configured. I tried it in my local language (spanish) and in english with same results. Apparently it is not a problem of the translation, because sometimes (only 2 or 3 times in at about one year that I'm using the player) the player speak some words. This works correctly in release version.
My actual version is 0f89b04, but it happend in all dev versions.

I have installed Rockbox build 0F89B04-160628 using this ( method.

I have created a dynamic playlist (Database > long select artist > current playlist > Queue Shuffled). Play and then pause the music and then hold the play button down to shutdown rockbox. Plug in USB cable from your computer (Win10) in to the iPod and the iPod should start powering on and then a white *panic* screen should appear.

Workaround is to have Rockbox already fully booted before plugging in a USB cable from the computer.
