I’ve had a Fuze for a couple of months, and I recently installed Rockbox. Does Sansa have an official opinion about installing RockBox on the Fuze? Is it something they discourage? What about user opinions - would anyone who has used both for a while care to share their opinion?
So far I’ve found that videos play better under Rockbox, and the Rockbox apps are really handy. I love using the Rockbox text editor for my grocery list. I just save the list to my Fuze as a text file, open it with the text editor, then delete the items with the press of a single button as I pick them up. No more wasting paper and scratching things off with a pen. I’ve also become addicted to the xobox game under Rockbox, and I’m not a game kind of person. It’s a great way to make time pass while waiting for something. I’m amazed that the Fuze has the power to play chess, and doom.
On the downside, Rockbox obviously isn’t as polished as the Sansa firmware, and there are too many options for my wife. It also seems to drain the battery faster, but maybe it just seems that way to me because I’ve played more video under Rockbox and more music under the Sansa firmware. Anyone else have an opinion?
