Help Why do people say Rockbox is not available for e200 v2?

I have a e200 v2 and i've heard you can't get Rockbox on v2. I have Rockbox on v2. Why do people say you can't?

Where did you hear that? What people?
Sounds quite vague

Any post that here says Rockbox isn't available for the v2 e200 is either really old or inaccurate. Rockbox on that model has been marked as stable since somewhere around 2009 or 2010.

Did you note when that claim was made? Perhaps the following might refresh your memory: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...22&postcount=4.

Different hardware. Every Rockbox port is based on the specific hardware in the player. The V1 e200 are based on Portal Player hardware, V2 are based on AMS AS3525v2 SoC.

That means a new port that had to developed when sandisk changed from one set of hardware to the other. If you check the New Port page http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/Newport you'll see a new port takes the time and effort of people that have the time and skill to create a new port. That took several months for the V2 e200. That means you'll find outdated posts that says Rockbox wasn't a available.

BTW, Mario, Doom and such were throw ins that weren't considered essential. The developers that added them are long gone. The last few times I've seen requests for help on the rockbox forum the response has been near zero. Not surprising as sandisk players suck as gaming platforms. You can try over there. There may be someone interested now that wasn't around before.
