Hello all, and just wanted to let you know instead of the 8GB e280, the seller only had the v1 2GB e250 in stock, so I took what I could get for now. He hopes to have some more refurbed e280’s in soon, and of course, I’ll get one!
I got the v1 2GB e250 in the mail today, and I’ve now got it Rockboxed!! Rockbox is much more useful than the included SanDisk firmware, that’s for sure. I now have a clock in either 12 or 24 hour format, a calulator, stopwatch, and even a lamp that uses the display to light the way!! :smileyvery-happy: It also has many games, as well as other applications I’ll have to try out as well.
The only downside? I can’t seem to get the themes and fonts I downloaded to install. I’ve been messing with it for over 3 hours now, but I’m going to take a break for awhile. I can’t do it from within the Rockbox Install Application because the themes site is down at the moment, and it tells me to install manually. When I extract the files to the Rockbox root folder, they do not show up within the Settings/Theme Settings/Browse Themes or Settings/Theme Settings/Browse Fonts on the e250 player. If anybody has any ideas, I’d certainly appreciate it, but I hate to ask since I’ve been searching and using advice found both here and at the Rockbox forums to try and figure it out, but to no avail. I don’t think the Themes are broken, but I could be wrong. I installed (I thought) all the fonts needed, but they don’t seem to show up (unless they are considered part of the initial Rockbox download/install fonts package). The others I’m trying to install came from the Rockbox themes page, which help in case a given theme I’m trying to use does not have the required fonts.
Thank you all, and I love this little player even more now!! :smiley:
PS: Does anyone know how accurate the included battery bench application is? Thank you!
Edited for typo.
