Default cpchan branch

The archive is now split into 2 parts: rockbox.zip and rockbox_plugins.zip. For those who have downloaded this build (not the menu build) earlier on, please redownload- I accidentally uploaded wrong files.

N.B.: Please enable dircache in "Settings"-> "General Settings"-> "System"-> "Disk"-> "Directory Cache"
Please create the "_Shortcuts" directory folder if you don't have one.

News
  • Viewports-wps patch updated.
  • Multifonts updated
  • Sncviewer patch updated
  • LCD fade patch updated
  • Extm3u patch updated.
  • Shutdown-hold.patch dropped
  • Multi-volume dircache patch dropped (merged into SVN).

Old News
  • Reverted "Device Disable" patch at the request from the developers because they would like people to test it out with the test build in order to get it into SVN as quickly as possible, Carrot: The more people test it, the sooner it will get into SVN.
  • Shutdown with hold button patch added at the request of Tenson.

What is it?

"Cpchan Rockbox Branch" is my version of Rockbox which I thought I would share. It will be updated almost daily. The objective of this build focuses mainly on usability. "Cpchan Menu Rockbox Branch" is my personal build with revamp playlist orientated "Main Menu".

The patches included in this version are:

Current Patches
  1. Viewports-wps-v1.diff: Last part of Viewports that is not in SVN.
  2. extm3u_lang_fixed.patch: Support for extm3u playlist format.
  3. infones0v08.diff : A (S)NES emulator.
  4. sansa_calendar.diff: A simple calender plugin. Requested by Vortex.
  5. 50-id3TPA.patch: Sorting tracks with metadata did not use the discnumber tag...
  6. custom_splash.diff: Custom user splash screen.
  7. playlist_folder.patch: This patch moves all the playlist creation etc... from the root dir to the PLAYLISTS directory.
  8. splitwav.patch: A Plugin to split wav files on target.
  9. viewer.patch: Modified button assignment in text viewer slightly so that you have to HOLD left/right to jump to the beginning/end of the file, instead of simply pressing... this should avoid accidental jumping around.
  10. backlight-thread-fading_r16180M-080128.patch: LCD fade in/out for the Sansa. Requested by godess.
  11. multifont.patch: Allows multiple fonts in Rockbox. This include the "multi-user font" patch.

  15. cpchan_quick_menu.patch: Preliminary adaptation of the user definable "Quick Menu" patch. Instead of an extra menu item like in the original patch. The "Quick Menu" is accessed with a "Long Select" from the "Main Menu", WPS, and "Directory Browser". For first time users, please rename Please refer to ".rockbox/custom_menu.config" to learn how to add custom items.
  16. main_menu_rec_button.patch: My patch to go the recording screen from the main menu with the REC button.

    containing the directories that you want to be scanned in the .rockbox folder.
    Only the directories in this file and any contained directories will be scanned.
  21. video_menu.patch: This patch adds a video menu to the main menu. The top level directory (folder) where you put the video files in must be named "video". Note: the original patch uses "Videos" as the directory, I changed it to "Video" to better match the OF.
  22. random_album.patch: This patch adds a "random" option to every submenu of the music database.
  23. sansa_playlist_converter_V3.3.diff: Rockbox to Sansa playlist converter plugin. Suggested by gratt.

  5. album_art_20070717.patch: By popular request, I have included the album art patch. You will need to use a theme that supports album art. Here are the instructions for using album art. Obsolete.

The video load a bit slower, but the resume is very smooth. The seeking works, but is a bit clumsy. Committed to SVN.

Yes, you just unzip the 2 zip files in the root directory (folder) of your Sansa. The only reason why it has to be split into 2 files is because there is an attachment file size limit on this site.

Enjoy.

@cpchan: How about you keep update this one while I convert mine into a "bloated" rockbox with as many patches as I see fit? That would be like ABi Rockbox Lite and ABi Rockbox Full. Now that I think about it, it will burn a lot of battery so may not be a good idea.

I'm horrible with timezones... if it's not too much work, do you think you could add something which shows the date of the build you have?

For example, on Rockbox the latest build right now was at 2007-04-10 22:03, but according to your post, you updated at 2007-04-10 01:29. I know it was more recent than that.. sorry, guess i'm picky, but it would be nice =). I like knowing how recent of a build i'm downloading (down to the hour/minute =p).

Thanks again for offering this to the forums.

Can you please add this patch to deal with the scroll wheel buffering when you first play a song because it is such an annoying bug:

http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/6913

I do love this version though with the volume patch. It sounds so much better!

this is great, cpchan! I did notice a possible bug with the playlisting menu. I could not use it to locate existing playlists I made prior to installing the rockbox (it may not recognize them?), and when I tried to make a playlist, the little curser started scrolling on it's own up & down the items in the menu, and I could never actually get anything in the menu selected (i.e. it didn't work). Have you observed this?

also, will you plan on adding album art to your build later on?

Maybe they can also make one to go to a "Music" folder like the video_menu.patch

Loving the new build!! Is anyone else getting a slight stutter every few frames in mpegplayer? It doesnt matter that much as there is a huge improvement in the audio quality and i know these sort of problems will eventually be sorted out. Keep up the good work
