I guess it's not working anymore, and I can also learn nothing from that picture, because it doesn't show any of the parts in detail..

Keiran; you'll need to get much better quality pictures and much closer detail for these to helpful, I'm afraid.

A closeup of each part individually would be good, as well as where they sit inside the case, and if you could label each part when you post them that would be most useful, or if you're unsure of what they are, you could take a picture of that particular piece next to the other pieces it was attached to or on top of.

I hope that nobody has already mentioned it... Searching up the processor in Google (again..) led me to a company named Freescale, which seems to have bought Sigmatel or so. Anyway, I found several PDFs that mentioned i.MX233 in relation with stmp378x (like "i.MX233/stmp378x based boards") So smtp378x seems to be the same like i.MX233 or at least they are very similar.

The PDF also contains information about flashing the device with Linux and the Freescale website provides the necessary tools. However, I couldn't manage to use these tools successfully...

Maybe you guys are able to find out something. Here's the PDF:

The problem I see even if we do flash linux is we have no way to reverse most of the drivers needed. Unless stuff like volume, usb, and display are all generic..

The Freescale website offers Linux images that are suitable for "i.MX233/stmp378x boards" like they call them. I can imagine that there are already drivers included. The main problem is to get that image flashed because the upload software is actually designed for development boards.

Well, true. I wonder if the Creative firmware update is a complete flash? If not it would be real easy to brick...

I guess it is a complete flash. Recently I used some software that extracts anything readable that is inside the firmware update executable, but there was nothing that looked like a firmware image.
Something like an USB sniffer would be cool, I mean a tool that logs anything that is sent or received from a particular USB port.

Tried that, got way more trouble than it was worth.

Yes, you're totally right, it's just not worth the trouble... we really should bury that topic.

The girlfriend just washed mine...

To open it up I just inserted my thumbnail in the join at the bottom and slid it around popping all the clips. It came apart very easily.

Wow, wow, wow, looks like it's happening! Three days ago a Rockbox developer pamaury posted this image in the forums.



Here's a link to the discussion which, as a matter of fact, links back here.
http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php?topic=23563.0

Thanks to the hardware similarities between ZEN X-Fi2 and Sansa Fuze+ (which has been almost ported), we might get our port too, some day.

I am very excited! What about you?

If we can get this port, then we can run lua from rockbox, and be able to control the api and multi-thread along with other optimizations. As a proof of concept, someone has already made a luaplugin for rockbox:

http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/PluginLua

All we would have to do is add some api like the touchscreen. (This will not be easy, but it will be worth it).

If this can be accomplished, then we can gain access to more memory and processor to use. It would also allow for other music formats, and possibly running two sounds at once.
