Sorry, I meant "default" as in "rockbox_default.wps". CabbieV2 has it's own wps, which is editable. But when I open rockbox_default.wps, this is all that is contained within:
# Dummy file to allow Rockbox to reset to the default WPS config.
# Do not edit this file. It's never actually loaded by Rockbox.
When I select the file, it changes the wps to the simple white text on black background - that is the wps I want, but without the peak meters.
