- bootloader makefile convert an extra font to be installed alongside the bootloader
since sysfont is way too small
- the toolsicon bitmap comes from the Oxygen iconset
- touchscreen driver is untested
- implement audio routing driver (pcm is handled by pcm-alsa)
- fix playback: it crashes on illegal instruction in DEBUG builds
- find out why the browser starts at / instead of /contents
- implement radio support
- implement return to OF for usb handling
- calibrate battery curve (NB: of can report a battery level on a 0-5 scale but
probabl don't want to use that ?)
- implement simulator build (we need a nice image of the player)
- figure out if we can detect jack removal
- try to build a usb serial gadget and gdbserver
Since ext3 supports ext2, we can support more platforms. Some platforms use ext4
with a very specific set of options, we I haven't encountered those yet so it's
not currently a problem.
The new code gets closer to an actual bootloader:
- it provides a menu with three options: Sony, Rockox, tools with icons (and
extracts the Sony logo from the NVP)
- the dualboot install script now creates a symlink from /.rockbox to
/contents/.rockox which is necessary to run rockbox
- more text drawing / framebuffer functions
In the long run, we will move this under bootloader/ and rbutil/ and also use
firmware/ drawing facilities, at the moment we use OF display program which
is slow and creates some flickering.
The logo extraction/placement code was tested with resolution 240x320 and I
guessed some reasonable values for 240x400, but those will probably need some
At the moment, the script install_duaboot does the following:
- rename SpiderApp to SpiderApp.of (unless it already exists)
- install payload as SpiderApp
- fixes permissions
Since SpiderApp is the main app, it will execute instead of the OF.
The current dualboot code (dualboot.c) is still a preliminary but the current
version displays an "all tools" menu to choose for. When exitting the menu
using BACK, it will run the OF.
With the modifications made by the install script, it should not be possible
to break the device. In the worst case scenario, the dualboot code crashes
and it restarted by the sysmgrd, or hangs. A safe way to recover is to plug
the USB cable and reset the device: the system manager will then start the
USB app and one can reflash the device if necessary.
This is useful because there is no easy way to get it except from Sony's tool,
unless one knows the npv node, but that requires to know the model already...
The new script allows the upgrade to execute a file found on the user partition.
The exec_file allows to embed a script/executable and run it on target. It takes
of unpacking, remounting contents rw and redirect output to exec.txt at the root
of the drive. More generally, rework how the makefile works.
Also fix a typo in the script makefile
