My 14th very own custom Rockbox build for Sansa e200

This build is based on revision 17238. I made it to keep up with the latest codebase and patches and to try a few new patches too. Unfortunately two of those new patches don’t seem to work, more exactly doom and pictureflow plugins will crash in this build. Additionally the Instrument Tuner Plugin I wanted to include didn’t make it into the build. I also made 3 new fonts in sizes 8 to 13 px out of the new Windows Vista TTFs.SanDisk Sansa e200

  • flashlight plugin
  • various optimizations: wma and nsf codec,
  • skipping tracks,
  • viewports,

New Patches

My 13th very own custom Rockbox build for Sansa e200

So this is my latest build based on revision 17055. With my previous build I had a few crashes (black screen, still powered on until battery drain) and “data abort”. Also had the “normal” duplicates in database after updating to my last build. Now the View Ports Custom List Patch is included (again?). I also simply removed two less important patches, one being the cause for wrong parameter count in function ‘is_backlight_on’ when I tried to build with those.SanDisk Sansa e200

Update

Darn! I forgot to enable USB in the Makefile. Sorry for this inconvinience. Downloads are now with USB enabled.

News

  • new(?) game pegbox
  • many default themes now using new stripped bitmaps (included in “full zip”)
  • smooth resize committed
  • fixes for Sansa OF USB detection
  • fixes for WMA codec
  • multi-core tweaks

New Patches

  • customlist_vp_v8b.diff
  • multifont_for_customlist-20080403.patch

Updated Patches

  • albumart-smooth_resize-080407.patch
