A temporary Gigabeat F/X Rockbox build

It has been more than one year of stagnation, and Rockbox has changed a lot.
I am now come to a most current build as of 2010/01/29 13:40:56. The build is with only one patch - the lyric player patch.

Note: The zar file is divided into part 1 and 2.

SVN: r24365
Patches: as of 2008/07/01

FS#10559 - lrcplayer: a plugin to view .lrc file

SVN: r17883
Patches: as of 2008/07/01

(1) Recent SVN enhancement: conditional viewports
(2) Old wps files are very likely to be broken by "Major changes in Viewports and CustomWPS". Modify the old; if not, stick with the old builds.
(3) Added Patchs: "sleep_timer".
(4) Removed Patchs: "Random folder advance", "additional disktidy", "customlist_vp", and "mpeg play mode" removed.
(5) Based on SVN revision r17883 and the following patches:

01. FS#3045 - Album art display on WPS (Committed in SVN)

13. FS#6301 - New tags for WPS and tagcache (Removed due to out of sync)
14. FS#7670 - Read rating value from MP3 Id3 tag for display in WPS(Removed - Restored to use "set song rating")
15. FS#7585 - Wavsplit plugin
16. FS#7729 - Adds delete option to menu or jpeg viewer
17. FS#7542 - Moves all the playlist creation to the "playlists" directory.

Old history:

  • SVN and all patches updated to the most current as of 2008/02/21-- SVN Enhancement: Improved UI in the video player; PictureFlow for album art; Matrix Demo. Patchs "Custom user splash screen" and "New tags for WPS and tagcache" are removed.

  • SVN and all patches updated to the most current as of 2007/10/15

Since no one is providing a compiled Gigabeat Rockbox that suits my taste and is also up to date. I just made one for myself and tested it a bit. It seems that it is stable and without the glitch (crashes in a few cases, like showing Version and playing plugins) as appeared in previous patched builds, and I thought a few people might also find suit. So I am sharing the file here.

The build is based on SVN revision r14426 and patches as of 20070822. The patches are:
