This is an attempt to summarize the features we need the most.
It is based on the requests both here and ABI/Head-Fi. Please post your opinions & comments.
The firmware seems to be actively developed, and there is a chance we both can get what we want: sales for SanDisk, most requested features for us.
Hopefully this would be some point of reference for the devs.
In my opinion implementing these features would eliminate the immediate need for Rockbox in most cases.
Even more — as there are few aspects of the original firmware that are better — such as auto bookmarking and the 1st level menu, that could make it a better choice if the features were implemented.
