Default Sansa Clip+ - Any way to change volume without screen turning on?(Rockbox)

I just got a sansaclip+ and rockbox firmware.*I notice that whenever I adjust the volume the screen always turns on, just curious if there was there any way to change the volume while the clip remains in sleep mode. Thanks!

Welcome to ABi

It can be done but it requires using a custom build. You can set up a build environment and apply this patch http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/9305 and create a custom build that has a setting that leaves the display off during a volume change. You can read how to do that here http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/WorkingWithPatches

The alternative would be to use a custom build like the one in this thread http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...ad.php?t=72194. The drawback that to that is that you're stuck with that build. If you ever update to a current dev build it won't have that patch applied. You'll be in the position of waiting until someone else decides to supply a build using a updated source. You can see in the last few posts of that thread what that can lead to.
