FS#6831 - prompt to set date/time on startup if RTC has invalid time

This is especially useful on targets that have an off switch instead of a reset button like the gigabeat but also applicable to other targets (power loss due to run down battery etc)

The patch:
- displays the date/time settings screen at start-up on encountering an invalid RTC time
- the screen is pre-set with the build date (instead of 01/01/2000) reducing the number of button presses even more

Looks useful. Might investigate it.

This might be quite confusing for blind users and pretty much annyoing for users that don’t care about their RTC (but lose power frequently like swapping batteries on archos devices). This has also been mentioned in IRC a couple of days ago.

-Synced with SVN
-New menu option “Prompt to Set Time/Date if Invalid” (off by default)

I hope I did this right…not sure how the lang files should look with this.

this patch looks quite useful. ill give it my thumbs up for implementation as an extra feature.

“New menu option “Prompt to Set Time/Date if Invalid” (off by default)”

that should prevent any confusion for blind users and allows people who don’t care about RTC to continue not caring.

I think this needs a sync:
CC root_menu.c
root_menu.c:34:10: error: #include expects “FILENAME” or <FILENAME>
root_menu.c: In function ‘root_menu’:
root_menu.c:445: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘timedate_set’

Didn’t think anybody else was actually using it. :)
