FS#4806 - wrong filedate when writing

After connecting my iRiver H340 to my computer I noticed,
that all files (e.g. configuration) written by rockbox
have create/modified timestamps far in the future.

The day and month seems to be correct, but the year is not.
My date and time is correctly set and it also write the
correct date inside e.g. a configuration file at the first

The years of the files are all 29 years in future
(e.g. for a file written today at 2006/03/09 it writes
down 2035/03/09)

Really strange :-)

Not rockbox\' fault - bug exists in original h300 firmware

This is because of a bug in the iriver original firmware RTC driver. It uses the Year field in the wrong way, and it resets the RTC when it thinks it is invalid. Each time you start the iriver firmware, even just to charge it, the year will be set like this.

You're right - it seems my year was really wrong :(
(I thought I checked it before posting, but I must be wrong)

BTW, I did not boot the original firmware for eons, so I don't know how this happened???

I'll close the task - although it would be nice if rockbox
would automatically correct such wrong years…
