I have an FM transmitter and a JVC boombox with an iPod interface. When I plug my Nano on these devices, the interface stops responding and none of the controls from the players work.


- The command keys on the dock device (the transmitter or the boombox) have no effect
- The scrollwheel works (the "cursor" moves on the screen)
- The Select button no longer works
- The Forward/Back/Play/Menu keys no longer work

Even after I unplug the Nano from the dock, I don't get a functional interface. The only way to fix it is to hard-reboot the device.

You might want to test FS10623, it could improve the behaviour of your hardware.

Could you report your findings under that task?

Thank you

I downloaded the patch, but how to I access the source code to compile? Is it only available via SVN or can I download the 3.4 sources somewhere?

You will find everything you need at

In case you just want to test, send me your email in private, I'll send a zip to you.

You can send private mails in the forums.

I am not allowed to send private emails in the forum, for some reason. Anyway, you can send me the test package directly. My address is my Rockbox userid <at>
