rockbox warning

Just tried to upgrade my clip v2 to rockbox and the player is totally dead now. Just a warning to others who may try. Don't really understand what happened as I did go through the process correctly.

Re: rockbox warning

Clip V2's are now stable with rockbox 3.7.  Over the last couple of days I updated both of my Clip V2's without any issues whatsoever.

 

If you give us a few details of exactly how you proceeded with the update process, we might be able to help you.

Don't despair, I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation and easy fix;  having said that (Curb Your Enthusiasm, anyone?)  I'm not the one knowledgeable enough who can help you. I took the risk and loaded Rockbox to my Clip+.  After some serious pdf Rockbox manual and website reading and minor install complications, viola it's locked and loaded. If anyone has simple install questions I may be able to help, just post on this forum. Good luck.

If you unplug and replug the headphones do you hear a click sound?  If so, it may just have crashed with the screen off.  The clipv2 seems to do that from time to time.

Re: rockbox warning

The same just happened to me. I got a V2 Clip too.

I used 'Complete installation' with Rockbox Utility (Windows Xp) than pulled it off from the USB cable. It booted with the OF. I turned it off and since than it's dead. Can't turn it on and nothing happens when I plug it to the USB.

(Can't hear any click when I plug the headphone)

Re: rockbox warning

just was told that if the left button is held down and power button pushed up it may work. Will try tonight.

Same here...the player is dead in the water. There seems to be nothing left to try.
