Yet another custom Rockbox build for the Fuze v2…
NEW version (v1 & v2) here:

(Pardon the crappy hosting)

Included are the following patches:

* http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/11577
Better crossfeed (Meier v2)

* http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/11679
"Smart menus" with faster and more convenient navigation: Menus remember the last position when changing from the settings menu to the While Playing Screen.

* http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/5153
Doom Scrollwheel Patch: Allows the player to use the scrollwheel for sideways motion (strafing).

Further additions:
* All fonts from the official font pack + several custom ones (thanks to 'Anapan', who converted these!)
* (Very) slightly reworked default icons that look better on themes with a bright background
* Corrected hold switch behaviour (a recent SVN bugfix)

If anyone finds this useful or wants a build for the Fuze v1, please let me know. ;)

Pretty good...
The menu thing feels just natural and should be included in the normal rockbox build.
Meier v2 rocks collapses the soundstage but does not make the sound muddy like the original crossfeed in rockbox.
Didn't try the doom thing.(don't play doom on my fuze).
The hold switch behaviour is now like the OF.(tried to do it myself once but could not make head or tail of the c files so left it.)
Didn't notice the change in the icons.(Not a bad thing).
Lots of fonts.(some of them useless like the 16 Chicago and 16 Pokemon {Too big to see anything})

After all the good news one bad one too.
Crashed once don't know the reason yet or how to reproduce it yet.
May not be related to the build, will continue to use it and report back.

Thanks for your feedback, akbarhash.

Only a few icon pixels where changed, for example the icon for the recording screen didn't look too good in front of a white background.

14- and 15-Chicago fonts provide the best readability, IMHO.

As for the crash: I don't know, these are very small and unobtrusive patches, so I don't think the crash is related to them. Might be a coincidence.

akbarhash 01-25-2011 06:36 AM

Yeah, mostly not. Lets see...
also posted on rockbox.org for the menu patch to be accepted.

Id like the very same for the Fuze v1.

Or is there any quick way to apply these patches, the way I understood is you have to apply them to the source and then build the firmware.
That is a bit hard for me, having started with rockbox yesterday.
The whole source package is 36meg that cant be.

It would be nice if you could compile that for v1.
Or if you could tell me how to do this in windows.

I can do that, sure. I just noticed today that the menu patch no longer works with current SVN builds, so I have to omit that one. If that's okay for you I'll upload a new build with the other stuff included.

Edit: I can also compile the exact same version I linked above, but it won't include the latest daily changes / updates.
Your choice. ;-)

günter 02-11-2011 08:39 AM

I think I have the newest version because I used the installer.
So I think its ok to have one patch missing and to have the newest build.

Thanks again.

Nope, Rockbox is under constant development and new code is committed every day. The latest release build installed by Rockbox
Utility is already several weeks / months old…

So here you go:


Untested, because I don't have a v1.

May I ask what got you interested in this custom build (as a user who is very new to Rockbox, I mean)?

dfkt 02-11-2011 12:02 PM

Just a suggestion: Maybe try Mediafire instead of Rapidsh*t for your uploads. It has no waiting time for downloads, and you can keep track of how many people downloaded the files.

Progweed 02-11-2011 12:19 PM

Thanks for the suggestion. Indeed, Mediafire looks like a much more sensible hoster.

But I think I will install Dropbox soon. That's probably an even better solution.

günter 02-11-2011 03:58 PM

I have an RS account so thats perfect Im downloading and I will try it now.

I was interested in the doom patch and the thing that doesnt work anymore

PS It works, thx

solomonella 02-13-2011 06:46 PM

i just installed your custom build for my v1 Progweed, its perfect! finally, i got to try the meier cf..thanks man! :)

Progweed 02-14-2011 09:55 AM

You're welcome. I became addicted to the Meier Crossfeed very fast. :)

Bostedclog 03-01-2011 01:15 PM

Has this latest download been taken off then?I cant seem to get it to work:confused:

Progweed 03-02-2011 05:48 AM

It works for me, but Rapidshare is even more crappy than I thought: it has a 10 downloads limit. :rolleyes: I'll upload the v1 build again via Mediafire.

Ill just have to try and get one of the 10 slots per day.:D

Progweed 03-08-2011 04:13 AM

I think it's 10 downloads and then nothing… http://cosgan.de/images/smilie/boese/u060.gif

Hum. I wanted to wait for the Rockbox developers to fix the database bug in v3.8 and later builds. Then I'll upload a new custom build with the above mentioned patches and the recently added support for antialiased fonts. Deal? :)

Bostedclog 03-10-2011 11:53 AM

Cheers mate . Patience is a virtue.

Progweed 03-10-2011 01:27 PM

Oh well, it'll probably take some time to hunt down this really mysterious bug.
