RBUtil reports wrong/mixed version numbers, in the info tab, some numbers are old, some dont even correlate to installed components, and bootloader is given as an md5 checksum hash, ive uploaded a pic of the important segmet, the rest of the themes are the same, seeing as i cant update them....

Reason for closing:  Not a Bug
Additional comments about closing:  we use timestamps instead of version numbers in a lot of places to ease numbering. Rockbox Utility 1.0.8 changes this for the bootloader too. Version numbers are arbitrary anyway.

Besides I have no idea what "old numbers" should be.

Why do think that those version numbers are wrong ?

This screen just lists all parts rbutil can detect / finds in the install.log.
For some parts there are no versions numbers, so we store the date. Or for the Bootloader the md5sum.

I dont really see whats the Bug whith this.
