I see no option to enable or disable this… this patch isn’t really suitable for inclusion at all in its current state. You’ll need to make it at least optional and flexible.

This patch looks familiar(because i’m the one that created it). If AssassinXCV doesn’t work on the menu integration by saturday i will do it.


Is there already another tracker entry for this?
It’s really, really bad to submit other peoples’ patches to the tracker.

There was a tracker entry for it but i guess you guys removed it during your tracker cleanup. Its really no problem to me if he added it again but if you have a problem with it then do as you please.

Sorry, i got it from someone on a website that respects Rockbox, just to let you know, i am not going to take credit for the Patch

oh ya, i don’t know how to integrate it so do as you please

The point was more “You need to be able to release the work under the GPL license, and thus must have permission to do so.” His posting of someone else’s work is a bad thing to do unless there’s a license that goes with it allowing him to allow its use under the GPL.

As for technical details, what I said in my first comment still stands in order for anyone to consider it.

Please just put it in, i don’t want any trouble, i just want to have that patch put in. I DO NOT WANT TO TAKE AWAY ANY CREDIT FROM THE CREATOR OF THE PATCH, sorry if it has bothered you, i didn’t know, it was a mistake, i just got it off a website, i didn’t know SORRY, i just want to have the patch “integrated” what ever that means. Sry! And i’m not good at changing around stuff,(i’m not good at computer stuff) can you make all the otions like to turn it off or on and do that “flexible” stuff.

Sorry Donut Man 25 i didnt want to cause any problems, maybe your the one that posted the patche on the website that i’m talking about, have you ever been to the site it has themes to use on rockbox and themes just for regular sansa if you don’t have rockbox. plus it has tricks and stuff for the sansa, you should go to it, there are some very smart people there, oh and the site is mostly a forum site that people post things so try it out you guys. Donut man, if you can integrate it then please do it
