Hi, I have V.01.02.16A installed on my Sandisk Clip+ 8GB and am just wondering if I can use this method or do I have to Downgrade the OF to V01.02.15. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

You don't say what "this method" is. I linked you to other versions of the Sandisk firmware in this thread. As long as it didn't come with the .01.02.16 firmware you should be able to use the one I linked to for either a automated or manual installation.

Are there any benefits of upgrading to the latest OF?

I've been using Rockbox on the OF that came before the latest one.

I compiled a new build, almost 1000 revisions after my last one.

r30835M-111025-sansaclipplus (FS#9305, FS#11304, FS#11767, FS#12075, FS#12338, channel swap) - dfkt

Included patches:
FS#9305 - Context sensitive backlight on key press
FS#11304 - Higher quality audio HW settings for AS3543
FS#11767 - Meier crossfeed
FS#12075 - Add timeout to quickscreen
FS#12338 - Option to restart running sleep timer on keypress
FS#00000 - Channel swap

Patches I used in earlier builds:
FS#11891 is broken against current SVN.
FS#10849 and FS#12111 got accepted to SVN in the meantime.

Whoever already downloaded my build above, please download again. I resynced FS#11304 and included it in the build.

I had a copy of the first build you posted today without FS#11304. Updated to the latest.

Thanks for this. I've been wanting to do a apples to apples comparison of r30743 using a build with the Meiers crossfeed. A fair amount of the audio improvements are rather subtle and if I can't do a comparison with the same features active it's just not a true comparison.

To be honest it's rare that I can actually hear any of the audio improvements in everyday use. I do think it's better to be using a build that's fairly recent though. I've been working on getting used to the playlist features that were changed recently and having this will let me update to take advantage of them. The default save to the Playlist Catalogue (still hate that spelling) saves quite a few cut and paste steps for someone who uses them as regularly as I do.

On a roll... resynced and added FS#12075 to the build above.

Skip, I think I saw someone working on an US English menu patch.

As I understand it that spelling is the US English menu now. I'm getting used to it just like I am the new Playlist features. I'm finding the new setup is actually easier all around once I let go of my old way of doing things. That's not always easy after years of doing things another way but I'm finding it to be worthwhile.

I didn't understand why the change had been made until I dug in and read that it was changed to so it wasn't confused with the folder in the file browser. Some of the issues that caused some epic "How do I save a playlist issues" were addressed in these changes and has made it easier for new users to get up to speed.

Not a big deal for me if it introduces more people to Rockbox. This old dog can still learn some new tricks.

I think linuxstb wrote it. Not sure, though, it's been a while. The only (tiny) issue with that patch is that audio balance doesn't get swapped as well - when channels are swapped, panning left goes to the right, and vice versa. Not a big deal, though.

I'll check with him. The flipped channels is because we still don't do balance in the DSP code, but rather we actually adjust the gain on the L and R DAC channels. I think thats just a hold over from the old archos days before we had software decoding and processing. I need to fix that as well, but the channel flip can happen first.

Yeah, it was linuxstb, back in April (17.57.24): http://www.rockbox.org/irc/rockbox-20110422.txt

Off-topic: the way you say balance is implemented, is that the reason why it's not working at all in RaaA?

I didn't realize it was missing, but probably.

kugel yelled at me for committing during a feature freeze, so I reverted the patch. Will commit again once we branch for 3.10.

@dfkt: any reason why you didn't add the PMU patch from FS#11664 to your build?

Hi.
I have volume issues on rockboxed 3.9.1 sansa clip+. The volume level tends to jump slightly up and down. It could be quite easy to hear on death metal songs, where most of the frequency range is envolved. Is it a common bug? Tried on original firmware, everything is OK.

Just updated Rockbox on my Clip+ for the last time....to the 3.10 release. Next week when I sell it, I'll have to revert it to the OF.
