Aug 10 - I've been working on the dedicated site for this branch, which will officially be open in the next few days. I've added a few new patches and have been updated the current ones, and haven't had a chance to update this post. In addition to the patch updates, the dedicated site will also have it's own link to the build download, acting similar to a mirror. I've also created a script to allow users to download copies of the older builds, back to July 28 (I know that isn't too far, but a backup is generated every day). If you've already found the dedicated site, great, otherwise you'll have to wait a few more days. So far, I've only told two people, who are helping me get it ready.
Aug 15 - Site's public
Aug 17 - I'm going to be making a few changes to this post, mainly removing the patch list, since a more up to date version is on my site.

Included Patches
A list of included patches can be found at

Removed Patches
FS7451 - Wheel Acceleration - In SVN
FS6467 - Doom controls - Poor controls (from what I found)
FS2648 - Text Viewer Button Mods - Doesn't compile; made for iPod
FS7379 - Rockboy Sound - In SVN
FS6044 - Alarm plugin - Out of Sync - causes make to error out, causing other plugins to not be built.
FS7105 - Music LED - While fun to look at for a while, becomes a hassle. It also seems to aid in draining the battery. At least one user has had a seizure from it. Also, for those who didn't notice before, THIS PATCH COULD BE DISABLED BY REMOVING %PM FROM THE WPS!!! (if I could, I'd make it flash )
FS6860 - Battery Status Handling - Bugs
FS6800 - LCD fade - In build
FS7134 - MicroSD support - In SVN
FS6562 - Bubbles - In SVN
FS7178 - Radio Support - In SVN
FS4733 - Multi Font Support - needs custom config file, and without my sansa, I can't test much
FS4760 - RockCalendar - Errors
FS7145 - GPIO Button Driver - closed on tracker, in SVN
FS6908 - Audio fix - closed on tracker
FS6913 - Scrollwheel - Out of date/closed on tracker FS6996 - Scrollwheel Sensitivity - Scrollwheel doesn't function....the patch is too out of sync for it to work
FS7101 - RTC Time/Date - In SVN
[Custom] - HDD LED - Replaced by FS7105. Until an on/off setting is provided, I will keep two separate builds up.
FS5241 - MOD player codec - doesn't compile
FS7138 - Audio API - Random popping

Updates usually are automatically made when there's a change in the Rockbox SVN, though I do occasionally force it to update via (others can use that if needed)

Patches used are linked to above. Log of entire build creation found at Source is available on request.

Patch request
Feel free to let me know, either here or via PM, if you'd like to have a patch added or removed, provided enough people don't mind.

I'm also offering some themes to go along with this build, already added.
For now, I'll have BlackAurora and DockpodAA added, since they both support album art. Both will be seperate from the original build, so you can have the choice of using these or not, to save a little space. Both themes will always to up to date with the original builds, as the themes are simply 'added on'. If anyone would like to have me add other themes, let me know.

Precompiled Themes
If you would like to have a theme added, feel free to request one. Themes are a lot easier to add, since they can be added after the build is compiled, and I therefore can create different copies of the same build, each with different themes. You can still install themes normally, this is just if everyone wants one preadded, other than the default Rockbox one.

Undefined instruction at 4000047C (or similar) during bootup - rename custom_menu.config.default to custom_menu.config (in the .rockbox directory)
