I use the Rockbox version that you send me.

It sounds like the install process was messed up somewhere. Are you on windows? Also are you on IRC or any instant messaging service maybe I can help step by step?

Can rockbox play videos on the S and can it sync with winamp?

Yes RB can play videos check here. I usually just encode them using the gigabeat F series parameters and they play fine. As for the winamp thing I would think it could, I manually add all my content.

hi all, I'm stuck on step 1a b, what is meant by the "bootloader build directory" and how do I run that command

jac0b 11-15-2008 09:38 AM

In the gigabeat-s-b.zip file you downloaded has the bootloader (nk.bin) in it. Just extract the bootloader (nk.bin) to the directory where your "sendfirm" utility is and that is your "bootloader build directory".

Hi,
Thank you very much for build and detailed help!
I am successfully run your today(11/15/08) build on MES60V - PC OS – WinXP.

Unfortunately after reboot/shutdown player automatically go to recovery…
so I have to repeat sendfirm nk.bin process each time.
In a essence it I had exactly same issues like SHOU TUOC post#20.
Could you please let me know if this can be resolved?

jac0b 11-15-2008 04:41 PM

First make sure you have the .rockbox folder is at the root of the drive. Then after you send the bootloader to the player safely remove the mp3 player but don't unplug it switch the battery OFF and then unplug. Once unplugged turn the battery ON and power on the player.

Am i suppose to use the sendfirm.exe to run the command: ../utils/MTP/sendfirm nk.bin
cause once I open it, it close automatically.

Once again thanks for great build! I am running latest .rockbox and loving it!!. Everything works fine including video, plugins, text...
But unfortunately I am still getting recovery screen upon reboot despite exactly following your recommendations and tried everything with sendfirm nk.bin including directly copy&paste nk.bin on sys partition.
Any idea to suppress/bypass recovery screen on MES60V?
Is any positive solution to post #20?

Edit:
Just found new bk.bin((12.8kb) http://audio-p.hp.infoseek.co.jp/nk.7z and used it instead of
gigabeat-s-b.zip nk.bin(76.8kb) - everything seems works fine & no recovery menu prompt on power off/restart.
Version of bootloader shown in time of load - r17497-0805.. version with in Rockbox sys info r18773M-08101.
Question:
Could you please let me know if this work around that somthing I can stick with?
Is any way to use nk.bin(76.8kb) vs found bk.bin(12.8kb) and suppress/bypass recovery screen on MES60V?

jac0b 11-15-2008 10:06 PM

If it works with that bootloader use it. If you still have problems PM me your yahoo id and we can figure it out over IM.

rvi 11-17-2008 11:38 AM

Got it! Thanks! Do you know if I can enable radio on MES60V, install plugin perhaps?

I don't think that rockbox supports radio on the gigabeat as of yet. You can check the status of the build here.

Your welcome

randominality 01-14-2009 05:42 PM

hmm except one thing
when i connect it to the computer the computer thinks it keeps getting plugged in and unplugged again.

jac0b 01-14-2009 06:07 PM

Are you on windows? Also try a different USB port.


Update:
I just tried it on my computer and it connected fine but I am on Ubuntu.

randominality 01-14-2009 06:20 PM
