Rockbox For The VIEW

[ Edited ]
The rockbox team has just announced they are in the begining stages of making rockbox  avilable for the VIEW
it is in "Pre-Devlopment" right now and  if given enough support should be ready for Beta-Testing sometime in the future.

Re: Rockbox For The VIEW

If sansa is going to treat this device like this, an app. like rockbox may be the only hope for view users. I really like this device, plus it was a gift, so I'd like it to live up to its potential. It seems as if there really hasn't been much interest for the view in the rockbox forums, (I check them daily hoping for good news).

Re: Rockbox For The VIEW

we need to have more people requesting it, they prioritize by who asks for it, or if a coder has a special interest, giving a donation with a footnote that you have a view might work too.

Re: Rockbox For The VIEW

Not to seem ignorant but what exactly is rockbox?

 

I went to the website... is it open source firmware that you replace the manufacturer firmware with?

Re: Rockbox For The VIEW

we really need to drum up support for this, we should mention it as much as we can, maybe rockbox will take notice.
