Firmware Switch with Fuze?

I was pondering, since the Fuze is a mini version of the View, Wouldn't it have the same firmware? I have used the Fuze before and really nothing was different. Could I just install the Fuze firmware onto my View? I was looking through the latest Fuze firmware release notes and there is a whole lot of stuff that people have been requesting. (such as accelerated wheel speed during long navigation, the GoList expanded to 200 tracks, et cetera) I just want some new firmware, as we all do. 

 

thanks,

I really don't think so. Just because they have the same features (more or less) doesn't mean their internal components and circuits are electronically identical, and THAT'S what matters for firmware.

Nope. The firmware is written based on the hardware for the player, the Fuze has different hardware.

Re: Firmware Switch with Fuze?

Calls to tech support have said that they are working on one, but many are not confident. Rockbox is working on it and that may be the next step.
