The Rockbox Main Menu


The main menu is the screen from which the rest of the Rockbox functions can be accessed. It is used for a variety of functions, which are detailed below.

All settings are persistently stored on the unit. However, Rockbox does not spin up the disk solely for the purpose of saving settings, but instead will save them when it spins up the disk the next time, for example when refilling the audio buffer or navigating through the file browser. Changes to settings may therefore not be saved unless the jukebox is shut down safely.

Accessing the Main Menu

You can access the Rockbox main menu by pressing MENU (player/studio version), F1 (recorder version), or A-B (iriver version) key. All options in Rockbox can be controlled via this menu. Some of them can also be found in the Quick Menu (Recorder and iriver versions only).
