Re: Rockbox & V2's

Have anyone who installed rockbox on fuze v2 damaged the DRM system?

 

I've read at the rockbox manual:

 

"DRM capability. It is possible that installation of the bootloader may lead to you permanently losing the ability to playback files with DRM."

 

Can anyone please check this? Many thanks!

It's almost a feature if it does, anyways.

 

Maybe it doesn't affect DRM capability of OF if you don't touch the system clock from rockbox... I don't know it and can't check it.


Tired of Sansa Media Converter? You want to put videos on your fuze but you can't use SMC? Then, check video4fuze

Re: Rockbox & V2's

I have a silly question:  I am exclusively interested in installing Rockbox's bookmark feature on my Sansa V2. Is it possible to do this without going through the (to me) complicated and, apparently, risky, procedure of installing the full Rockbox package?  Thanks a lot.

The answer is no.

 

That would be like installing the tabs feature of firefox in WMP. You can't split and mix programs... unless they're designed to do so, which is not the same.

 

Rockbox is a replacement firmware for your fuze, which means that the original firmware itself is left untouched (although the DRM playback capability may be lost).

But of course, you could install rockbox and then remove all its plugins, apps, codecs, languages and so on, leaving only the bookmark plugin... which would be pretty useless. And more complicated.

Rockbox is great! The latest version is awesome and gapless playback is wonderful. I didn't believe it would work very well but have been impressed with the work the coders have done.

Re: Rockbox & V2's

I cannot get Rockbox to install after updating to 2.03.33, nor can I revert back to any other firmware all I get is "Refreshing your media".

 

The only firmware that will perform a firmware install is the 2.03.33 firmware, even a patched version of this won't install.

Re: Rockbox & V2's

That's weird. Today i've installed, reinstalled, upgraded and downgraded with patched and non-patched versions the firmware without problems. Are you putting the files with the correct filenames in the correct place?

You need to build (or somehow obtain) a patched version of the Sansa firmware.  The patched version includes the Rockbox bootloader which allows you to dual boot Sansa and Rockbox. You can find some basic instructions at http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/SansaAMS
