Rockbox Rules

september 28, 2002

Those Rockbox guys really do kick some serious ass! Check out one of their DAILY BUILDS for some kick ass firmware replacement on Archos MP3 players. The latest development -- and this is why you'll have to grab the daily build and not the 1.3 build -- is ROLO. ROLO is a bootloader for the Archos. So, since the Rockbox guys haven't gotten to working on playlist stuff, it's nice to have ROLO around. ROLO lets me boot into the Archos firmware temporarily so that I can create a playlist and save it to the HDD. Then I can boot back into Rockbox firmware. Rockbox firmware sounds great! Great work Rockbox team!
