Default Fuze+ and Rockbox

Never mind. After learning the fuze+ is only halfway supported by rockbox I cancelled the order and will be buying some other sandisk player.
Recommendations welcome.
Thanks.

  • Clip+
  • Clip Zip
  • original Fuze
...all happily Rockboxable. It's really a matter of which physical features/form factor appeal most to you.

And it seems to work fine on the Fuze+ as well......unfortunately, it can't counteract the dreadful touch controls that damn the player.

Speaking of the Fuze+ and Rockbox, how is the compatibility now? The only things I've read on it are from months ago, saying that it's not completely compatible. Everything on the Rockbox site looks okay, but I figured I should ask before I installed it. Just ordered a Fuze+, don't wanna brick it as soon as I get it!

It works on it just fine, but it can't cure the godawful touchpad....lol.

Great, thanks! Just got it today and I have to say, I kinda dig the touchpad. I can see where improvement is needed, but it's not atrocious.
Anywho, thanks for the confirmation, Marvin.
