Rockbox 3.7 -- finally stable for the clip+

Here’s an example of a question that I can’t find the answer to: After the installation of Rockbox will I need to reload all +/-22gb of music already on my Clip+, i.e  does the install erase everything already loaded? That would be a major hassle.

No, all the music you have on it will be fine, as long as you have some room to spare in the internal memory for the installation.

OK But how well does it work for podcasts? Sandisk have a folder setup for podcasts. Does rockbox provide something similar?

Ok so i tried to upgrade to rockbox and it did not go well. Somehow I ended up with both the sandisk and rockbox working at the same time and not musci showing in the rockbox. Shpould I try it again?

You’re supposed to end up with both firmwares, since if you lost the original firmware it’d be impossible to connect over USB.

Regarding music, you’re going to have to be more specific.  If you put a song in some folder, and then browse to it in rockbox, is it still in that folder?

It’s been a while, and I may not have the wordinig just right, but I believe the 1st time you have to “initialize the database” (or something like that) to get your music files to show up. Try consulting the manual.

OK – RB 3.7 is up and running fine, no problems, and none of the display bugs that made me ditch the beta.  My #1 reason for using RB – WAY more battery life!  Everything else is gravy.

I believe Guru status is acheived when one has 900 posts. If so, my math is correct. Why it’s 900 posts and not 1000, I don’t know.

I know that it was a long time ago when you hit Guru, but I coulda sworn that I hit Guru after clicking “post” on my 801st post. But I thought this was supposed to be secret Guru knowledge!:stuck_out_tongue:

How does the rest of us know that you’re actually telling the truth about that number?  Hmmm?

Interesting video, kinda cool.   Seriously, IIRC, your number sounds right.

Maybe it’s a moving target  :angry:

You’ve been a member here for a year longer than I…but it would appear I have been far more active in the forum. I wouldn’t stress over it if I was you…you still show up in blue which is a nicer color than red anyways. :wink:

When the posters here mentioned that the manual is extensive, they weren’t exaggerating.  It’s almost 200 pages long! :dizzy_face:

It really is long…the good thing is that you don’t necessarily have to read the whole thing. Just looking at the Contents can help you narrow down what you actually need to read, to answer your questions. For example, I have no interest in audio recording, or playing the games, so I never bothered reading those parts of the manual…but other parts of it have been very helpful to me.

I’m no programmer or rocket scientist, but the majority of my questions I have been able to answer by going back to the manual…the good old “read the fabulous manual”:wink:
