Default Can't Get Album Art to Work

I read everything at Rockbox site, like making sure files are bitmaps, etc., but can't get album art to display while song is playing.

As a test I created a wps file using an existing wps file as a template, copied the album art bitmap into the album folder on my e260 (named it cover.bmp). I then "played" the wps file I created to ensure it was being used, then played a song from the album folder containing cover.bmp. Album art does not display.

If I navigate to the cover.bmp file and select it, the e260 displays it fine (just not as a wps element).

What gives?

I don't know about creating wps files but I'm sure you need a build that supports AA (Album Art). I'm using Kugel's custom Rockbox build and I have a cover.bmp file in every album folder and I see my AA every time I play a song from a particular album folder?.

You might wanna check out his build?

The official build supports Album Art. If there's an unofficial build that doesn't any more, it's incredibly outdated.
