Amazing what following the instructions can do

But it won't be stable, you can change the fonts, and MTP is part of the original firmware (and sp you can change it there).

Congrats on the success, if your running one of the latest builds, I find them very stable.

Try dfkt’s wps up in the thread above or go under settings, theme settings and check out other themes.

You have an older build, AFAIK the radio does work see here.

Like I said ^ you have an older build, on the newer ones that doesn’t happen. But all you need to do is boot to OF and change it back.

Boy, Rockbox sure kills the battery life! But so much better controls. Once I get the podcast sync under control, this will be great!

I really think you need a different build, I get good battery life from both dfkt's build or saratoga's, almost as long as the OF. Last few weeks been running more of saratoga's as I was going to report issues, but funny enough I haven't had any, so I'm not logging. Good luck, it certainly is great to have the flexability of rockbox

Update. Sansa not dead. Just needed a hard reboot (hold power down for 20 seconds). It's alive again!

I am still using the log version. No problems or crashes in a couple of weeks of semi-regular use. Love having rockbox on all my mp3 players

New clip test build. Won't produce any logging output, but contains several proposed fixes to buffering to improve stability on low memory targets. Seems better to me.

I've been looping that build for almost 18 hours without a crash. I think this fix is a pretty good one.

Saratoga, the new build still crashes my Clip instantly, with either "undefined instruction ..." or "data abort ...", same as the one before it. Going back to the logging builds still works fine. I removed my config.cgf to see if anything in there causes trouble, but same results.

Could you give me the addresses in those errors? I can dig through the binary and see where they occurred.

Also if you have any idea how to produce the crash please let me know. I've been running for more then 24 hours straight without a crash.

Edit: Also your bootloader SVN version would be interesting to know.

They vary a bit, here's a few of them:

Undefined instruction at 3020F704 / 3020F744 / 3020F6A4 / 3020F664 / etc...

Data abort at 3020F6C0 / etc...

It happens every time in the first two, three second after playback starts - it crashes every time, no exceptions. It's the same issue as with your older r23293M-091020 move handle build, same I wrote here: http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php?...7506#msg157506

Bootloader: r23321-091023 and r22695-090913, both same results.

Those addresses are all in the decoders, so I guess they probably mean the audio buffer just contained junk and the codec crashed trying to parse it.

Could you try checkdsk or formatting? It could be that the file system is damaged from a crash and rockbox's FAT driver is just reading garbage into the audio buffer.

Went to work with the Panasonic formatter in full mode (~20 min), re-flashed the bootloader... same results. This build crashes within a few seconds, while your old logging v2 and v3 builds work fine.

EDIT: I just downloaded the automatic build newest version, r23660-091118 - same errors. So it seems it's not these patches, but something that's already in SVN. Seems somewhere between r23121 (your v3 logging build which works fine) and r23293 (your first move handle build which crashes my Clip) might be the issue.
