i heard, the ipod 5g hast got 32 ram wich are actually not used by rockbox currently, so it would be cool, if someone could make this working, hence the memory is very often skips/stucks while browsing and stuff liek that...

Actually, all of this memory is used by Rockbox.

If you mean skipping while navigating can change a setting so a directory cache will be kept...Otherwise that is just expected behavior.

Actually, Rockbox does only use half the ram on the 5G 60gig, but that has nothing to do with the skipping. All that will effect is an improvement of battery life because more audio is buffered.

Not to mention there is already a patch out that remedies this.

actualy the patch as implemented asks a question at the build stage
this would seem to be impossible to implement in a daily build
what i think is needed is either autodetection or a menu setting that allows the choice
not being a developer i have no idea how difficult this would be?
