A temporary Gigabeat F/X Rockbox build

It has been more than one year of stagnation, and Rockbox has changed a lot.
I am now come to a most current build as of 2010/01/29 13:40:56. The build is with only one patch - the lyric player patch.

Note: The zar file is divided into part 1 and 2.

New:
SVN: r24365
Patches: as of 2008/07/01

FS#10559 - lrcplayer: a plugin to view .lrc file

Old:
SVN: r17883
Patches: as of 2008/07/01

Note:
(1) Recent SVN enhancement: conditional viewports
(2) Old wps files are very likely to be broken by "Major changes in Viewports and CustomWPS". Modify the old; if not, stick with the old builds.
(3) Added Patchs: "sleep_timer".
(4) Removed Patchs: "Random folder advance", "additional disktidy", "customlist_vp", and "mpeg play mode" removed.
(5) Based on SVN revision r17883 and the following patches:

01. FS#3045 - Album art display on WPS (Committed in SVN)
02. FS#7432 - Sncviewer - a plugin for viewing synchronized lyrics on player screen
03. FS#7487 - Mpegplayer resume features - video start time seek with resume (Committed in SVN)
04. FS#2954 - Scrolling text margin for the WPS (Partially accepted and closed)
05. FS#2954 - Modification to scrolling text margin for the WPS (Merged)
06. FS#4733 - Multifont
07. FS#6960 - Random (album) selection in Database (in SVN)
08. FS#7538 - Custom user splash screen (Removed due to "rejection" status)
09. FS#7114 - HTML_Parser - creates a txt file readable in the viewer
10. FS#7708 - Random folder advance file export (in SVN)
11. FS#7661 - Make ID3 info screen more readable (Removed due to "rejection" status)
12. FS#7652 - EXTM3U support
13. FS#6301 - New tags for WPS and tagcache (Removed due to out of sync)
14. FS#7670 - Read rating value from MP3 Id3 tag for display in WPS(Removed - Restored to use "set song rating")
15. FS#7585 - Wavsplit plugin
16. FS#7729 - Adds delete option to menu or jpeg viewer
17. FS#7542 - Moves all the playlist creation to the "playlists" directory.
18. FS#7497 - Add a magic string to bootloader version to enable locating it in the binary
19. FS#8799 - User definable list dimensions (custom list for viewports)
20. FS#8400 - Option to keep backlight off while changing volume etc.
21. FS#8286 - utilise the buttons on the gigabeat cradle
22. FS#8607 - For playing mpeg videos continously a "play mode" is introduced
23. FS#8595 - Additional functionality for disktidy plugin (in SVN)
24. FS#8630 - make sleep timer value persistent

Old history:
  • SVN and all patches updated to the most current as of 2008/04/07 -- SVN Enhancement: Viewports; Patchs added: "customlist_vp", "backlight-keys", "mpeg play mode", "cradle_buttons"; Patchs Removed: "Wavsplit plugin", "HTML_Parser", "bootloader version".

  • SVN and all patches updated to the most current as of 2007/11/05 -- Has a few minor glitches and is removed.
  • SVN and all patches updated to the most current as of 2007/10/15
  • SVN and all patches updated to the most current as of 2008/07/01
Oldest:
Since no one is providing a compiled Gigabeat Rockbox that suits my taste and is also up to date. I just made one for myself and tested it a bit. It seems that it is stable and without the glitch (crashes in a few cases, like showing Version and playing plugins) as appeared in previous patched builds, and I thought a few people might also find suit. So I am sharing the file here.

The build is based on SVN revision r14426 and patches as of 20070822. The patches are:

The mpegplayer viewer plugin is currently capable of playing back MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 video with audio multiplexed into .mpg files.

If you just updated the .rockbox folder you might want to reboot the player and try playing the video again if that doesn't work reload the rockbox build on your player and reboot and try playing the video again.

Nice to know you enjoy the build.

To my knowledge - and I have just made a few searches - no such patch exists.

Thanks for that jac0b, I'll have to check the site more often to see if anything else comes out.

Post your problem in this forum or try the IRC channel. Someone might be able to fix it.

It seems that the 20071105 build has a few glitches. I have just built a new one and posted it. You might want to give it a trial. Thanks.

It's really good, but there is a bug when the Gigabeat is off.
To turn it on again I have to turn the battery off and turn it on again but with the power button I can't turn it on.

To my experiences (I didn't play games), I have not had such a problem for the current build, nor have I ever touched the power switch. More clue may be helpful.

EDIT (20080314):
The problem occurs for users who switch build -- mainly due to incompatible bootloader. Please refer to Rockbox forum
http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php?...8720#msg118720
for more details.

Can anyone help me with the latest files here? I can't seem to get a working .zip - either by using the files on their own or combining them together...

Edit: Nevermind, WinRAR does the trick

just a note, you don't need custom builds anymore. just use the RockboxUtility app to install the stable firmware from rockbox.org. it includes most of the features OP was trying to incorporate.
