Default New Rockbox Bootloader for 1.02.28 Firmware?

Just wanted to know if anyone has any info on a new Rockbox bootloader for the recently released Fuze firmware 1.02.28?. Thanks.

Maybe this is a silly question, but if you are using Rockbox, why bother upgrading the OF from .26 to .28?

It's nice to be able to switch between the 2. Especially for people like me that have battery issues with Rockbox but still enjoy using it periodically.

rbutil and mkamsboot have been updated in svn, but the current versions on the site are old so they won't work. Someone compiled this updated mkamsboot with support for the new firmware on the rockbox forums:

http://duke.edu/~mgg6/rockbox/mkamsboot.exe

I haven't tried it though, so I can't promise it won't set your fuze on fire.

I used it a while back -- with no need for a fire extinguisher.

well MM I was using RB until the new OF was released. I upgraded thinking it wouldn't be that big of a deal for RB to come out with an updated bootloader, which since has proven to be more challenging than I thought. I guess I could just downgrade back to .26 again being that I'm too much of a wus to try anything that could potentially fireball my v1 Fuze...so I'll just wait it out.

I swap between the two because, frankly, its a pain in the ass to get Rockbox to recognize my embedded Album Art on my MP3s. So I use the Sansa version when I want to listen to music or watch Videos, and Rockbox to play games or run apps or whatever.

It takes like 10 seconds to swap between the two.

The one saratoga linked to does.

FWIW, I'm of the opinion that the "I can't guarantee it won't set your Fuze on fire" statement occupies the same general territory as "I can't guarantee it won't make your Fuze stab you."

ok, let me get this right...

you used the new mkamsboot.exe (Saratoga's link) to create a new bootloader which works with the new .28 firmware?. If so then I'll go ahead and do it for mine then.

Keep in mind that if it doesn't work your totally to blame.

Correct.

So...if does work, what do I get?

happy to report that I installed Rockbox on my v1 Fuze with the new bootloader using the .28 firmware. Nice to have RB on my Fuze again. Everything works....so far....

I meant I used the updated bootloader a while back. I'm still happily sporting Rockbox (and will be forevermore).

is there a necessity to update the bootloader if you never switch to OF?

Assuming you are referring to this thread, it doesn't have anything to do with the rockbox bootloader. The tool here lets you update the OF. If you don't use the OF, theres probably not much reason to update it.

If you actually mean the rockbox bootloader (which hasn't been changed in 4-5 months and probably won't be for a long time), if you try to use too old a bootloader you'll probably just get an error loading rockbox.
