Installation

Rockbox functions very well on these target, and nightly builds are considered stable for day-to-day use.

The RockboxUtility fully supports these players (note that the current 1.4.1 release is from 2019 and will not work). However, if you wish to install the bootloader manually, follow these instructions:

  • Build or download the bootloader
  • Obtain a stock firmware image
  • Patch the firmware image with the bootloader
  • Rename the patched firmware file to update.upt and place it into the root directory of the SD card
  • Grab the latest daily build for the player and unzip it into the root directory of the SD card
  • Go into the settings menu and select firmware update.
  • Upon reboot, select rockbox from the initial menu

Here you can download the current bootloader builds, along with "binary patches" that can be easily applied to stock firmware update images using the 'bspatch' utility:
