FS#9048 - ipod 5.5g freezes upon usb connection on off state

when my 5.5gen ipod is off, i connect it to the computers (winXP desktop and laptop, Ubuntu desktop) expecting to have it boot into usb drive mode, but it comes up to rockbox environment and freezes.

i think it is still charging when frozen.

r17644 build. i think it started in r174xx build.

Clossure was requested as this was fixed sometime beween r17644 and r17729.

let’s reopen this – i made a mistake in requesting closure

using 17746 now and it’s doing it.

if the device is off and i plug it into usb, device freezes at home screen (files, database, resume playlist…) and i have to force restart in order to get it back to usable state. it will only load usb transfer mode if the device is turned on when i plug it into usb. this was not always the case and i found it very convenient to not have to worry whether or not it was powered up before plugging it in…

Same here on my 5.5G 30gig. It’s been doing this forever, and it’s kind of annoying.

I can confirm this, and add some info:

- it seems to be related to the directory caching, because turning dir cache off lets the USB connect.
- putting a sleep command just before init_dircache (but after usb_start_monitoring) solved the problem with dir cache on, but obviously this is not a real fix.
(HZ is the minimum wait time that seems to fix it, HZ/2 doesn’t)
