Porting Rockbox to YP-R0 (FAQ in the 1st post)
EDIT lebellium January, 21st 2013: LightROM 4.6
How to install Rockbox?
-New firmware 2.51 dualboot:
-New LightROM 4.6 (Rockbox-only!)
-Old firmware 2.30 dualboot (not recommended):
Is it safe to install Rockbox?
If you follow carefully all the steps above, there is no risk. The Modded Firmware 2.30 or 2.51 is no more no less dangerous than the latest stock firmware 1.25, the original features and bugs are still present. The improvements have been carefully tested.
How to uninstall Rockbox?
You don't want Rockbox anymore? Just delete the .rockbox folder as well as the loader file and that's it! We advise you to keep the firmware 2.30 or 2.51 though, particularly for the Safe Mode.
Install Rockbox themes for R0
The R0 has been showing up on the official theme page for a few months now: http://themes.rockbox.org/index.php?target=samsungypr0. As themes are only sorted by screen resolution, any theme for another 240*320 target (Sansa Fuze+, Toshiba Gigabeat etc) is theoretically compatible.
You can find my theme lebellium Samsung-like especially designed for the R0 on the official website here or on ABI here.
The R0 displays "system checking" at every startup before loading Rockbox. How to get rid of that?
First you have to start the Samsung app instead of Rockbox after the "system checking". Then turn off the device (only press the power button for 2-3 seconds) and press the reset hole. Power it on and you'll see the annoying "system checking" has gone!
I don't find my songs using the Rockbox file browser. Where are they?
On the main menu go to Files>mnt. Then you can see several directories: media0=internal memory, media1="neo-ghost" hidden memory and mmc=microSD.
You can start file browsing at a specific folder. For example if you want to start the browsing in the Music folder of the internal memory, just go to Files>mnt>media0 and make a long press on the "select" button when you are on the "Music" folder. In the context menu select "Start File Browser here". That's it!
