Rockbox is a replacement firmware for the-Jukebox Studio, Recorder and Ondio players made by Archos, the H120/140-players from iRiver and the Apple iPod Nano etc. It is a complete rewrite of-the software used to make the PDA play and record music, and contains many-features and enhancements not available in the original firmware supplied by-the manufacturer. Among the things that Rockbox has to offer are the-following:--\begin{itemize}-\item Faster loading than the \playername firmware-\item Uninterrupted playing of MP3 files {--} skipping is very rare-\item More control over how your music is played-\item Built in viewers for several common file types-\item Sophisticated plugin system that allows the Jukebox to run games,-a calendar, a clock, and many other applications.-\item Totally removable. (Removal of Rockbox before returning the-Jukebox for repair under warranty is advised.)-\item Optional voice user interface for complete control without looking-at the screen-\end{itemize}-Rockbox is a complete from scratch rewrite of the \playername software and-uses no fragments of the original firmware. Not only is it free to-use, it's also released under the GNU public license,-which means that it will always remain free to both use and to change.--\opt{OndioSP,OndioFM}{Although Rockbox also runs on the Archos Ondio series of-flash based MP3 players, this is a recent development, which is not covered-fully in this manual. Most of this manual will, however, apply equally to-Rockbox on the Ondio Jukeboxes. For more details on the Ondio port, please-see the web page:-\url{http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/ArchosOndio}.}--\section{Getting more help}--This manual is intended to be a comprehensive introduction to the Rockbox-software. There is, however, more help available. The Rockbox website at-\url{http://www.rockbox.org/}contains very extensive documentation and guides-written by members of the Rockbox community and this should be your first port-of call when looking for further help.--\opt{Archos}{\input{chapter1/archos_choice}}---\section{Downloading Rockbox}--The latest release of the Rockbox software will always be available from-\url{http://www.rockbox.org/download/}.- Windows users may wish to download the self{}-extracting Windows-installer, which works for all Jukebox models, but those wishing to-install manually or using a different operating system should choose-the .zip archive containing the firmware for their model of the-Jukebox.--\section{Installing Rockbox}--Using the Windows self installing executable to install Rockbox is the easiest-method of installing the software on your Jukebox. Simply follow the-on{}-screen instructions and select the appropriate drive letter and Jukebox-model when prompted. You can use Add / Remove Programs'' to uninstall the-software at a later date.--For non{}-Windows users and those wishing to install manually from the archive-the procedure is still fairly simple. Connect your \playername to the computer-via USB as described in the manual that came with your \playername. On Windows,-the \playername drive will appear as a drive letter in your My Computer''-folder. Take the file that you downloaded above, and unpack its contents to-your \playername drive. You can do this using a program such as-\url{http://www.info-zip.org/} or \url{http://www.winzip.org/}. --You will need to unpack all of the files in the archive onto your hard-disk. If this has been done correctly, you will have a file called-\opt{PS}{\fname{archos.mod}}-\opt{Rec,Rec2,FMRec}{\fname{ajbrec.ajz}}-\opt{H120,H340}{\fname{rockbox.iriver}}-in the main folder of your \playername drive, and also a folder called-/\fname{.rockbox}, which contains a number of system files used by the-software.--\section{Enabling Speech Support (optional)}--If you wish to use speech support you will also need a language file,-available from-\url{http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/VoiceFiles/}.- For the English language, the file is called \fname{english.voice}.-When it has been downloaded, unpack this file and copy it into the-\fname{lang} folder which is inside the /\fname{.rockbox} folder on-your Jukebox. Voice menus are turned on by default. See page-\pageref{ref:Voiceconfiguration} for details on voice settings.---\section{Running Rockbox}--Remove your Jukebox from the computer's USB port.-Unplug any connected power supply and turn the unit off. When you next-turn the unit on, the Jukebox firmware will start to load, and then it-will load Rockbox for you. When you see the Rockbox splash screen,-Rockbox is loaded and ready for use. --\section{Uninstalling Rockbox}--If you would like to go back to using the-original \playername software, then connect the \playername up to your computer,-and delete the -\opt{PS}{\fname{archos.mod}}-\opt{Rec,Rec2,FMRec}{\fname{ajbrec.ajz}}-\opt{H120,H340}{\fname{rockbox.iriver}}-If you wish to clean up your disk, you may also wish to delete the-\fname{.rockbox} folder and its contents. Turn the \playername off and on and-the normal \playername software will load.diff --git a/manual/chapter2/rockbox_interface.tex b/manual/chapter2/rockbox_interface.texdeleted file mode 100644index 3e8e4de0d4..0000000000--- a/manual/chapter2/rockbox_interface.tex+++ /dev/null@@ -1,804 +0,0 @@-\chapter{\label{ref:PARTII}The Rockbox interface}-\clearpage-\section{Your Jukebox}-\begin{minipage}{16.554cm}-{\centering\itshape- [Warning: Image ignored] % Unhandled or unsupported graphics:-%\includegraphics[width=7.904cm,height=10.723cm]{images/rockbox-manual-img8.jpg}- [Warning: Image ignored] % Unhandled or unsupported graphics:-%\includegraphics[width=7.87cm,height=10.703cm]{images/rockbox-manual-img9.jpg}- \newline-Jukebox Player Jukebox Recorder-\par}--{\centering\itshape- [Warning: Image ignored] % Unhandled or unsupported graphics:-%\includegraphics[width=7.87cm,height=10.7cm]{images/rockbox-manual-img10.jpg}- \newline-Ondio 128-\par}-\end{minipage}--Throughout this manual, the buttons on the Jukebox are labelled-according to the pictures above.

Higher sample rates use up more disk space, but give better-sound quality. This setting determines which frequency range can-accurately be reproduced during playback. Lower frequencies produce-smaller files, for two reasons. The amount of data to be compressed is-smaller and the data is easier to compress, since higher frequencies-are not present. The frequency setting also determines which version-of the MPEG standard sound is recorded using.--\item \textbf{Source}-Choose the source of the recording.

For recording from the radio on the FM recorder,-see page \pageref{ref:FMradio} below.--Note: you cannot change the sample rate for digital recordings.--\item \textbf{Channels}-This allows you to select mono or stereo recording. Please note that-for mono recording, only the left channel is recorded. Mono recordings-are usually somewhat smaller than stereo.--\item \textbf{Independent Frames}-The independent frames option tells the Jukebox to encode with the bit-reservoir disabled, so the frames are independent of each other. This-makes a file easier to edit.--\item \textbf{Time Split}-This option is useful when timing recordings. If set to active it stops-a recording at a given interval and then starts recording again with a-new file., which is useful for long term recordings.--The splits are seamless (frame accurate), no audio is lost at the split-point.

Although settable range is-0{}-100\%, many units don't produce audible output-below 40\%. On Recorders, volume settings above 92\% will cause-distortion (clipping) and are not recommended.--\item \textbf{Bass}-This emphasises or suppresses the lower-(bass) sounds in the track. 0 means that bass sounds are unaltered-(flat response).--\item \textbf{Treble}-This emphasises or suppresses the higher-(treble) sounds in the track. 0 means that treble sounds are unaltered-(flat response).--\item \textbf{Balance}-How much of the volume is generated by the left or right channel of the-sound. The default, 0, means that the left and right outputs are equal-in volume. Negative numbers increase the volume of the left channel-relative to the right, positive numbers increase the volume of the-right channel relative to the left.--\item \textbf{Channels}--This option controls the on{}-board mixing-facilities of the Jukebox. A stereo audio signal consists of two-channels, left and right. Available options are--\begin{itemize}-\item \textbf{Mono Left: }Plays the left channel in both stereo channels.-\item \textbf{Mono Right:} Plays the right channel in both stereo channels.-\item \textbf{Mono:} Mix both channels down to mono and send the mixed signal-back to both.-\item \textbf{Stereo:} Do not mix the signal-\item \textbf{Stereo Narrow: }Mixes small amounts of the opposite channel into-the left and right channels, thus making the sound seem closer-together.-\item \textbf{Stereo Wide:} Elements of one channel that are present in the-opposite channel are removed from the latter. This results in the-sound seeming further apart.-\item \textbf{Karaoke:} Removes all sound that is the same in both channels. -Since most vocals are recorded in this way to make the artist sound-central, this often (but not always) has the effect of removing the-voice track from a song.-\end{itemize}--\item \textbf{Loudness (Recorder only)}-Loudness is an effect which emphasises bass and treble. This makes the-track seem louder by amplifying the frequencies that the human ear-finds hard to hear. Frequencies in the vocal range are unaffected,-since the human ear picks these up very easily.--\item \textbf{Auto Volume (Recorder only)}-Auto volume is a feature that automatically lowers the volume on loud-parts, and then slowly restores the volume to the previous level over a-time interval. That time interval is configurable here. Short values-like 20ms are useful for ensuring a constant volume for in car use and-other applications where background noise makes a constant loudness-desirable. A longer timeout means that the change in volume back to-the previous level will be smoother, so there will be less sharp-changes in volume level.--\item \textbf{Super Bass (Recorder Only)}-This setting changes the threshold at which bass frequencies are-affected by the \textbf{Loudness} setting, making the sound of drums-and bass guitar louder in comparison to the rest of the track. This-setting only has an effect if \textbf{Loudness} is set to a value-larger than 0dB.--\item \textbf{MDB {}- Micronas Dynamic Bass (Recorder Only)}-The rest of the parameters on this menu relate to the Micronas Dynamic-Bass (MDB) function. This is designed to enable the user to hear bass-notes that the headphones and/or speakers are not capable of-reproducing. Every tone has a fundamental frequency (the main tone'') and also several harmonics, which are related to that tone. The human brain has a-mechanism whereby it can actually infer the presence of bass notes from-the higher harmonics that they would generate.\\--The practical upshot of this is that MDB produces a more authentic-sounding bass by tricking the brain in believing it's-hearing tones that the headphones or speakers aren't-capable of reproducing. Try it and see what you think.\\--The MDB parameters are as follows.--\begin{itemize}-\item \textbf{MDB enable: } This turns the MDB feature on or off. For many-users this will be the only setting they need, since Rockbox picks-sensible defaults for the other parameters. MDB is turned off by-default.-\item \textbf{MDB strength:} How loud the harmonics generated by the MDB will-be.-\item \textbf{MDB Harmonics}: The percentage of the low notes that is-converted into harmonics. If low notes are causing speaker distortion,-this can be set to 100\% to eliminate the fundamental completely and-only produce harmonics in the signal. If set to 0\% this is the same-as turning the MDB feature off.-\item \textbf{MDB Centre Frequency: }The cutoff frequency of your headphones or speakers. This is usually given in the specification for the headphones/speakers.-\item \textbf{MDB shape: }It is recommended that this parameter be set to 1.5-times the centre frequency.\\--This is the frequency up to which harmonics are generated. Some of the-lower fundamentals near the cut{}-off range-will have their lower harmonics cut off, since they will be below the-range of the speakers. Fundamentals between the-cut{}-off frequency and the lower frequency will have their harmonics proportionally boosted to compensate and restore the 'loudness' of these-notes.\\--For most users, the defaults should provide an improvement in sound-quality and can be safely left as they are.

It lets you set-a timer for how many seconds earlier than normally necessary the disk-should spin up and start reading data. You don't need-this unless you shake and bump the unit a lot. Spinning up the disk-earlier than necessary naturally drains the batteries a little extra. -Most users will not need this setting.--\item \textbf{Fade on Stop/Pause}-This setting enables and disables a fade effect when you pause-or stop playing a song. Fade is a progressive increase or reduction of-volume, from your set volume to 0, and vice versa.--\item \textbf{ID3 tag priority}-ID3 tags in an MP3 file contain information about the artist, title,-album etc. of the track.

Rockbox chooses which method it should use,-depending of how much it has to scroll left. This setting lets you tell-Rockbox where that limit is, expressed in percentage of line length.-\end{itemize}--\item \textbf{Status/Scrollbar (Recorder only)}-Settings related to on screen status display and the scrollbar.--\begin{itemize}-\item \textbf{Scroll Bar: }Enables or disables the scroll bar at the-left.-\item \textbf{Status Bar: }Enables or disables the status bar-at the upper side.-\item \textbf{Button Bar:} Enables or disables the button bar prompts-for the F keys at the bottom of the screen.-\item \textbf{Volume Display:} Controls whether the volume is displayed-as a graphic or a numerical percentage value on the Status Bar.-\item \textbf{Battery Display: }Controls whether the battery charge-status is displayed as a graphic or numerical percentage value on the-Status Bar.-\end{itemize}--\item \textbf{Peak Meter (Recorder only) }-The peak meter can be configured with a number of parameters. (For a description of the peak meter see page \pageref{ref:Peakmeter}.)--\begin{itemize}-\item \textbf{Peak Release:}-This determines how fast the bar shrinks when the music becomes softer.-Lower values make the peak meter look smoother.-\item \textbf{Peak Hold Time:} -Specifies the time after which the peak indicator will reset. If you set this value e.g. to 5s then the peak indicator displays the loudest volume value-that occurred within the last 5 seconds. Big values are good if you-want to find the peak level of a song, which might be of interest when-copying music from the jukebox via the analogue output to some other-recording device.-\item \textbf{Clip Hold Time:}-How long the clipping indicator will be visible after clipping was detected-\item \textbf{Performance:}-In high performance mode, the peak meter is updated as often as possible. This reduces the chance of missing a peak value, making the peak meter more precise. In energy save mode the peak meter is updated just often enough to look fluid.-This reduces the load on the CPU and thus saves a little bit of energy. If you crave every second of runtime for your jukebox or simply use the peak meter as a screen effect, the use of energy save mode is recommended. If you want to use-the peak meter as a measuring instrument you'll want to use high performance mode.-\item \textbf{Scale:}-Select whether the peak meter displays linear or logarithmic values. In-dB'' (decibel) scale the volume values are scaled logarithmically.-This very similar to the perception of loudness. The volume meters of-digital audio devices usually are scaled this way. If you are-interested in the power level that is applied to your headphones you-should choose linear'' display. Unfortunately this value-doesn't have real units like volts or watts since that-depends on the phones. So they can only be displayed as percentage-values.-\item \textbf{Minimum and maximum range:} These two options define the-full value range that the peak meter displays. Recommended values for-dbFs are {}-40 for min. and 0 for maximum. For linear display, use 0-and 100\%. Note that {}-40 dbFs is approximately 1\% in linear value,-but if you change the minimum setting in linear mode slightly and then change to dbFs there will be a large change. You can use these values for-'zooming' into the peak meter.-\end{itemize}-\end{itemize}--\subsubsection{\label{ref:SystemOptions}System Options}--\begin{itemize}-\item \textbf{Battery}-Options relating to the batteries in the Jukebox unit. -\begin{itemize}-\item \textbf{Battery Capacity} can be used to tell the Jukebox what-capacity (in mAh) of battery is being used inside it. The default is-1500mAh for NiMH battery based units, and 2300mAh for LiOn battery-based units, which is the capacity value for the standard batteries-shipped with these units. This value is used for calculating remaining-battery life.-\item \textbf{Deep discharge (Non{}-FM recorder only)}-Set this to ON if you intend to keep your charger connected for a long-period of time. It lets the batteries go down to 10\% before starting-to charge again. Setting this to OFF will cause the charging to restart-on 95\%.-\item \textbf{Trickle Charge (Non{}-FM recorder only)}-The Jukebox cannot be turned off while the charger is connected.-Therefore, trickle charge is needed to keep the batteries full after-charging has completed. For more in depth information about charging-see Battery FAQ in your \textbf{/.rockbox/docs }directory.-\end{itemize}--\item \textbf{Disk}-Options relating to the hard disk. --\begin{itemize}-\item \textbf{DiskSpindown:}-Rockbox has a timer that makes it spin down the hard disk after being idle for acertain time. You can modify this timeout here. This idle time is only-affected by user activity, like navigating through file browser. When-the hard disk spins up to fill mp3 buffer, it automatically spins down-afterwards.-\item \textbf{Disk Poweroff:}(non v2/FM{}-recorder only)-Whether the disk is powered OFF or only set to sleep'' when spun-down. Power off uses less power but takes longer to spin{}-up.-\end{itemize}--\item \textbf{Time and Date (Recorder Only)}-Time related menu options.--\begin{itemize}-\item \textbf{Set Time/Date: }-Set current time and date.-\item \textbf{Time Format: }-Choose 12 or 24 Hour clock. -\end{itemize}--\item \textbf{\label{ref:idlepoweroff}Idle Poweroff}-Rockbox can be configured to turn off power after the unit has been idle-for a defined number of minutes. The unit is idle when playback is-stopped or paused. It is not idle while the USB or charger is-connected, or while recording.--\item \textbf{Sleep Timer}-This option lets you power off your jukebox after playing for a given-time. This setting is reset on boot. Using this option disables the-\textbf{Wake up alarm} (see below).--\item \textbf{Wake up alarm (Recorder v2/FM only)}-This option turns the Jukebox off and then starts it up again at the-specified time. This is most useful when combined with the Resume-setting in the Playback options set to Yes'', so that the Jukebox-wakes up and immediately starts playing music. Use LEFT and RIGHT to-adjust the minutes setting, UP and DOWN to adjust the HOURS. PLAY-confirms the alarm and shuts your Jukebox down, and STOP cancels-setting an alarm. If the Jukebox is turned on again before the alarm-occurs the alarm will be canceled. Using this option disables the \textbf{Sleep Timer} (see above).--\item \textbf{Limits}-This submenu relates to limits in the Rockbox operating system.--\begin{itemize}-\item \textbf{Max files in dir browser: }Configurable limit of files in-the directory browser (file buffer size). You can configure the size to-be between 50 and 10000 files in steps of 50 files. The default is 400,-higher values will shorten the music buffer.\\--Note: the device must be rebooted for settings to take effect! -\item \textbf{Max playlist size: }Option to configure the maximum size-of a playlist. The playlist size can be between 1000 and 20000 files in-steps of 1000. By default it is 10000. Higher values will shorten the-music buffer.\\--Note: the device must be rebooted for settings to take effect! -\end{itemize}--\item \textbf{Car Adapter Mode}-This option turns on and off the car ignition auto stop-function. --When using the Jukebox in a car, car adapter mode automatically stops-playback on the Jukebox when power (i.e. from cigarette lighter power-adapter) to the external DC in jack is turned off. --When the external power off condition is detected, the Car Adapter Mode-function only pauses the playback. In order to shut down the Jukebox-completely the \textbf{Idle Poweroff} function (see above) must also be-set.--If power to the DC in jack is turned back on before the \textbf{Idle-Poweroff} function has shut the Jukebox off, playback will be resumed-5 seconds after the power is applied. This delay is to allow for the-time while the car engine is being started. Once the Jukebox is shut-off either manually, or automatically with the \textbf{Idle Poweroff-}function, it must be powered up manually to resume playback.--\item \textbf{Line In (Player only)}-This option activates the line in port on Jukebox Player, which-is off by default.--This is useful for such applications as:-\begin{itemize}-\item Game boy {}-{\textgreater} Jukebox {}-{\textgreater} human-\item laptop {}-{\textgreater} Jukebox {}-{\textgreater}human-\item LAN party computer {}-{\textgreater} Jukebox {}-{\textgreater} human -\end{itemize}--\item \textbf{Manage settings}-This submenu deals with loading and saving settings.--\begin{itemize}-\item \textbf{Browse .cfg Files: }-This displays a list of configuration-(.cfg) files stored in the \textbf{/.rockbox} system directory. This-is useful if the Jukebox is plugged into more than one different output-device (e.g. headphones, computer, car stereo, hi{}-fi) so that a settings file can be maintained for each.-\item \textbf{Browse Firmwares:} This displays a list of firmware (.mod-for Players and .ajz for Recorders) file in the \textbf{/.rockbox} system directory. Playing a firmware file loads it into memory. Thus it is possible to-run the original Archos firmware or a different version of Rockbox from-here assuming that you have the right files installed on your disk.-\item \textbf{Reset Settings: }This wipes the saved settings in the-Jukebox and resets all settings to their default values.-\item \textbf{Write .cfg file: }Saves the current settings into a .cfg-file for later use with \textbf{Browse .cfg Files} above.-\end{itemize}--\end{itemize}--\subsubsection{\label{ref:Bookmarkconfigactual}Bookmarking}--\begin{itemize}-\item \textbf{Bookmark on Stop}-Write a bookmark to the disk whenever the stop key is pressed. If-playback is stopped it can be resumed easily at a later time. The-\textbf{Resume} function remembers your position in the most-recently accessed track regardless of this setting.-\item \textbf{Load Last Bookmark}-When this is on, Rockbox automatically returns to the position of the-last bookmark within a file when it is played. If set to Ask, Rockbox-will ask the user whether they want to start from the beginning or the-bookmark. When set to no, playback always starts from the beginning-and the Bookmark file must be played or \textbf{Load Bookmark} selected-from the \textbf{Bookmarks} submenu of the Main Menu while the file is-playing.-\item \textbf{Maintain a list of Recently Used Bookmarks}-If this option is turned on, Rockbox will store a list of Bookmarks that-have been accessed recently. This is then accessible from the-\textbf{Recent Bookmarks} option of the \textbf{Bookmarks} submenu of-the Main Menu.-\end{itemize}--\subsection{\label{ref:Language}Language}-This setting controls the language of the Rockbox user interface.-Selecting a language will activate it. The language files must be in-the \textbf{/.rockbox/lang/} directory. --See page \pageref{ref:Loadinglanguages} for further details about-languages.--\subsection{Voice}--\begin{itemize}-\item \textbf{Voice Menus}-This option turns on the Voice User Interface, which will read out menu items and settings as they are selected by the cursor. In order for this to work, a voice file must be present in the \textbf{/.rockbox/lang/} directory on the recorder. Voice files are large (1.5MB) and are not shipped with Rockbox by-default.--The voice file is the name of the language for which it is made,-followed by the extension .voice. So for English, the file name would-be \textbf{english.voice}. --This option is on by default. It will do nothing unless the appropriate-.voice file is installed in the correct place on the Jukebox.--\begin{itemize}-\item \textbf{Limitations}-\begin{itemize}-\item Setting the Sound Option \textbf{Channels} to karaoke'' may-disable voice menus. -\item Plugins and the wake up alarm do not support voice features.-\end{itemize}--\item \textbf{Voice Directories}-This option turns on the speaking of directory names. The Jukebox is-not powerful enough to produce these voices in real time, so a number of options are available.--\begin{itemize}-\item \textbf{.talk mp3 clip: }-Use special pre{}-recorded MP3 files (\textbf{\_dirname.talk}) in each directory. These must be generated in advance, and are typically produced synthetically using a text to speech engine on a PC. If no such file exists, the output is as for the numbers'' option below.-\item \textbf{Spell: }-Speak the directory name by spelling it out letter-by letter. Support is provided only for the most common letters and-punctuation.-\item \textbf{Numbers: }-Each directory is assigned a number based upon its position in the file list. They are then announced as Directory 1'', Directory 2'' etc.-\item \textbf{Off: }-No attempt will be made to speak directory names.-\end{itemize}--\item \textbf{Voice Filenames}-This option turns on the speaking of directory names. The options-provided are Spell'', Numbers'', and Off'' which function the same as for \textbf{Voice Directories} and .talk mp3 clip'', which functions as above except that the files are named with the same name as the music file (e.g. \textbf{Punkadiddle.mp3 } would require a file called \textbf{Punkadiddle.mp3.talk}).-\end{itemize}-\end{itemize}-See-\url{http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/VoiceHowto} for more details on configuring speech support in Rockbox.-diff --git a/manual/chapter6/advanced_topics.tex b/manual/chapter6/advanced_topics.texdeleted file mode 100644index 97165d6855..0000000000--- a/manual/chapter6/advanced_topics.tex+++ /dev/null@@ -1,840 +0,0 @@-\chapter{Advanced Topics}-\newpage-\section{\label{ref:CustomisingUI}Customising the userinterface}-\subsection{\label{ref:GettingExtras}Getting Extras (Fonts,Languages)}-Rockbox supports custom fonts (for the Recorder and Ondio only) and a number of different languages.

Note that Archos-firmware can only read the first ten characters of each file name in-this process, so don't rename your old firmware files with names like-archos.mod.old and so on, because it's possible that the Jukebox will-load a file other than the one you intended.--\section{\label{ref:PartISection4}Using ROLO (Rockbox loader)}-Rockbox is able to load and start another firmware file without-rebooting. You just press PLAY on an .ajz (Recorder, Ondio) or .mod-(Player) file. This can be used to test new firmware versions without-deleting your current version, or to load the original Archos firmware-(you have to download the appropriate file from-Archos' website). --\section{\label{ref:Rockboxinflash}Rockbox in flash (Recorder, Ondio)}-\textbf{FLASHING ROCKBOX IS OPTIONAL!} It is not required for using-Rockbox on your Jukebox Recorder. Please read the whole section-thoroughly before flashing.--\subsection{\label{ref:PartISection61}Introduction}-Flashing in the sense used here and elsewhere in regard to Rockbox means-reprogramming the flash memory of the Jukebox unit. Flash memory-(sometimes called Flash ROM'') is a type of-non{}-volatile memory that can be erased and reprogrammed in circuit. It is a variation of electrically erasable-programmable read{}-only memory (EEPROM). --A from the factory Jukebox comes with the Archos firmware flashed. It is-possible to replace the built{}-in software with Rockbox. --Terminology used in the following:\newline-\textbf{Firmware} means the flash ROM content as a whole.\newline-\textbf{Image} means one operating software started from there. --By reprogramming the firmware, the Jukebox will boot much faster. The-Archos boot loader seems to take forever compared to the Rockbox-version. In fact, the Rockbox boot loader is so fast that it has to-wait for the disk to spin up. The flashing procedure is a bit involved-for the first time, updates are very simple later on. --\subsection{\label{ref:Method}Method}-The replaced firmware will host a bootloader and 2 images. This is made-possible by compression. The first is the-permanent'' backup. The second is the-default image to be started. The former is only used when you hold the-F1 key during start, and is the original Archos firmware, the second is-a current build of Rockbox. This second image is meant to be-reprogrammed whenever a Rockbox upgrade is performed.--There are two programming tools supplied: --\begin{itemize}-\item The first one is called \textbf{firmware\_flash.rock} and is used-to program the whole flash with new content. It can also be used to-revert back to the original firmware that is backed up as part of this-procedure. This tool will only be needed once, and can be viewed as-formatting'' the flash with the desired image structure. -\item The second one is called \textbf{rockbox\_flash.rock }and is used-to reprogram only the second image. If the resulting programmed-firmware image is not operational, it is-possible to hold down the F1 key while booting to start the Jukebox-with the Archos firmware and Rockbox booted from disk to reinstall a-working firmware image. -\end{itemize}--\subsubsection{\label{ref:PartISection63}Risks}-Well, is it dangerous? Yes, certainly, like programming a-mainboard BIOS, CD/DVD drive firmware,-mobile phone, etc. If the power fails, the chip malfunctions while-programming or particularly if the programming software malfunctions,-your Jukebox may stop functioning. The Rockbox team take no-responsibility of any kind {}- do this at your own risk. --However, the code has been extensively tested and is known to work well.- The new firmware file is completely read before it starts programming,-there are a lot of sanity checks. If any fail, it will not program.-There is no reason why such low level code should behave differently on-your Jukebox. --There's one ultimate safety net to bring back Jukeboxes-with even completely garbled flash content: the UART boot mod, which in-turn requires the serial mod. This can bring the dead back to life,-with that it's possible to reflash independently from the outside, even-if the flash is completely erased. It has been used during development,-else Rockbox in flash wouldn't have been possible.-Extensive development effort went into the development of the UART boot-mod. Mechanically adept users with good soldering skills can easily-perform these mods. Others may feel uncomfortable using the first tool-(\textbf{firmware\_flash.rock}) for reflashing the firmware.--If you are starting with a known{}-good image, you are unlikely to-experience problems. The flash tools have been stable for quite a-while. Several users have used them extensively, even flashing while-playing! Although it worked, it's not the recommended-method. --The flashing software is very paranoid about making sure that the-correct flash version is being installed. If the wrong file is used,-it will simply refuse to flash the Jukebox.--About the safety of operation: Since the Rockbox boot code gives dual-boot'' capability, the Archos firmware is still there when you hold F1-during startup. So even if you have problems with Rockbox from flash, you can still use-the Jukebox, reflash the second image with an updated Rockbox copy,-etc. --The flash chip being used by Archos is specified for 100,000 cycles, so-it's very unlikely that flashing it will wear it out. --\subsection{\label{ref:Requirements}Requirements}-You need two things: --\begin{itemize}-\item The first is a Recorder or FM model, or an Ondio SP or FM. Be sure-you're using the correct package, they differ-depending on your precise hardware! The technology works for the Player-models, too. Players can also be flashed, but Rockbox does not run-cold{}-started on those, yet. -\item Second, you need an in{}-circuit programmable flash. Chances are-about 85\% that you have, but Archos also used an older flash chip-which can't do the trick. You can find out via Rockbox-debug menu, entry Hardware Info. If the flash info gives you question-marks, you're out of luck. The only option for-flashing if this is the case is to solder in the right chip-(SST39VF020), preferably with the firmware already in. If the chip is-blank, you'll need the UART boot mod as well. -\end{itemize}-\subsubsection{\label{ref:FlashingProcedure}Flashing Procedure}-Here are step{}-by{}-step instructions on how to flash and update to a-current build. It is assumed that you can install and operate Rockbox-the usual way. The flashing procedure has a lot of failsafes, and will-check for correct model, file, etc. {}- if something is incompatible it-just won't flash, that's all. --Now here are the steps: --\textbf{Preparation}--Install (with all the files, not just the .ajz) and use the current-daily build you'd like to have. Enable any voice-features that are helpful throughout the process, such as menus and-filename spelling. Set the file view to show all files, with the menu-option \textbf{General Settings {}-{\textgreater} File View-{}-{\textgreater} Show Files} set to all''.-Have the Jukebox nicely charged to avoid-running out of power during the flash write. Keep the Jukebox plugged-into the charger until flashing is complete.--{\bfseries-Backup }--Backup the existing flash content. This is not an essential part of the-procedure, but is strongly recommended since you will need these files-if you wish to reverse the flashing procedure, or if you need to update-the bootloader (as opposed to the firmware) in the future. Keep them-safe!--Access the main menu by pressing F1 then select \textbf{Info-{}-{\textgreater} Debug}. Select the first entry, \textbf{Dump ROM-contents}, by pressing Play one more time. The disk should start to-spin. Wait for it to settle down, then plug in the USB cable to copy-the dump file this has just been created to your PC. The main folder of-your Jukebox now should contain two strange .bin files. Copy the larger-one named-\textbf{internal\_rom\_2000000{}-203FFFF.bin}-to a safe place, then delete them both from the box. --{\bfseries-Copy the new flash content file to your box }--Depending on your model (recorder, FM, V2 recorder), download one of the-3 packages: --\url{http://joerg.hohensohn.bei.t-online.de/archos/flash/flash_rec.zip}--\url{http://joerg.hohensohn.bei.t-online.de/archos/flash/flash_fm.zip}--\url{http://joerg.hohensohn.bei.t-online.de/archos/flash/flash_v2.zip}-\url{http://joerg.hohensohn.bei.t-online.de/archos/flash/flash_v2.zip}--\url{http://joerg.hohensohn.bei.t-online.de/archos/flash/flash_v2.zip}--\url{http://joerg.hohensohn.bei.t-online.de/archos/flash/flash_ondiosp.zip}--\url{http://joerg.hohensohn.bei.t-online.de/archos/flash/flash_ondiofm.zip}--The zip archives contain two .bin files each. Those firmware*.bin files-are all we want, copy them to the root directory of your box. The names-differ depending on the model, the flash-plugin will pick the right one, no way of-doing this wrong. --{\bfseries-Install the Rockbox-Bootloader (formatting'' the flash)}--This procedure is only necessary the first time you flash Rockbox. -Unplug the USB cable again, then select \textbf{Browse-}\textbf{Plugins}\textbf{ } from the main menu (F1). Locate \textbf{firmware\_flash.rock}, and start it with PLAY. Rockbox now displays an info screen, press F1 to acknowledge it and start a file check. Again wait for the disk to-settle, then press F2 to proceed to a warning message (if the plugin-has exited, you don't have the proper file) and F3 to actually program-the file. This takes maybe 15 seconds, wait for the disk to settle-again. Then press a key to exit the plugin.--{\centering\itshape- [Warning: Image ignored] % Unhandled or unsupported graphics:-%\includegraphics[width=3.609cm,height=2.062cm]{images/rockbox-manual-img75.png}- [Warning: Image ignored] % Unhandled or unsupported graphics:-%\includegraphics[width=3.669cm,height=2.097cm]{images/rockbox-manual-img76.png}- \textmd{ } [Warning: Image ignored]-% Unhandled or unsupported graphics:-%\includegraphics[width=3.739cm,height=2.136cm]{images/rockbox-manual-img77.png}- \newline-Flashing boot loader in 3 easy steps-\par}--{\bfseries-\label{ref:FlashingRockbox}Install the Rockbox binary in flash}--All the above was necessary only once, although there will not be any-obvious difference (other than the Archos firmware loading a bit more quickly)-after the step above is complete. Next install the actual Rockbox firmware thatwill be used from ROM. This is how Rockbox will be updated when-installing a new release from now on. --\begin{itemize}-\item Unpack the whole build that you are installing onto the Jukebox,-including plugins and support files. This can be done using the Windows setup program to install the new version onto the Jukebox.-\item Test the build you are going to flash by playing the .ajz file so-that ROLO loads it up. This puts the firmware in memory without-changing your flash, so you can check that everything is working. If-you have just installed the bootloader (see above) then this will happen automatically as the existing Archos firmware loads the .ajz that you have just installed. If upgrading ROMbox, this step \textbf{must }be carried out since Rockbox cannot overwrite the ROM while it is running from it. -\item Play the .ucl file, which is usually found in the-\textbf{/.rockbox} directory, this will kick off the-\textbf{rockbox\_flash.rock} plugin. It's a bit-similar to the other one, but it's made different to-make the user aware. It will check the file, available size, etc. With-F2 it begins programming, there is no need for warning this time. If it-goes wrong, you'll still have the permanent image. --{\centering\itshape- [Warning: Image ignored] % Unhandled or unsupported graphics:-%\includegraphics[width=3.53cm,height=2.016cm]{images/rockbox-manual-img78.png}- \textmd{ } [Warning: Image ignored]-% Unhandled or unsupported graphics:-%\includegraphics[width=3.528cm,height=2.016cm]{images/rockbox-manual-img79.png}- \newline-Using rockbox\_flash to update your boot firmware-\par}-\item It is possible that you could get an Incompatible-Version'' error if the plugin interface has changed since-you last flashed Rockbox. This means you are running an-old'' copy of Rockbox, but are trying to-execute a newer plugin, the one you just downloaded. The easiest-solution is to ROLO into this new version,-by playing the\textbf{ ajbrec.ajz }file. Then you are consistent and can play-\textbf{rockbox.ucl}. -\item When done, you can restart the box and hopefully your new Rockbox-image. -\end{itemize}-UCLs for the latest Recorder and FM firmware are included in Rockbox 2.4-and also the daily builds.--\subsection{\label{ref:KnownIssuesAndLimits}Known Issues and Limitations}-There are two variants as to how the Jukebox starts, which is why there-are normal and \_norom firmware files. The vast majority of Jukeboxes-all have the same boot ROM content, but some have different flash-content. Rockbox identifies this boot ROM with a CRC value of 0x222F in-the hardware info screen. Some recorders have the boot ROM disabled (it-might be unprogrammed) and start directly from a flash mirror at-address zero. They need the \_norom firmware, it has a slightly-different bootloader. Without a boot ROM there is no UART boot safety-net. To compensate for that as much as possible the MiniMon monitor is-included, and can be started by pressing F3+ON. Using this the box can-be reprogrammed via serial if the UART mod has been applied and the-first \~{}2000 bytes of the flash are OK. --\subsubsection{ROMbox}-ROMbox is a flashable version of Rockbox that is-uncompressed and runs directly from the flash chip rather than being-copied into memory first. The advantage of this is that memory that-would normally be used for storing the Rockbox code can be used for-buffering MP3s instead, resulting in less disk-spin{}-ups and therefore longer battery life- Unfortunately being uncompressed, ROMbox requires more space in flash-than Rockbox and will therefore not fit in the space that is left on an-FM recorder. ROMbox therefore runs on the V1 and V2 recorder models-only.--The procedure for flashing ROMbox is identical to the procedure for-flashing Rockbox as laid out on page \pageref{ref:FlashingRockbox}. -The only difference is that the file to install is called-\textbf{rombox.ucl}. ROMbox is included automatically with rockbox 2.4-and all the current daily builds, so the procedure is identical-otherwise.-
