Add Features to your MP3 Player

Monday, December 18th, 2006 | Author: Martin | In Hacking, iPod | Trackback |

If you are currently unhappy with the features of your mp3 player you might want to take a look at the open source rockbox firmware which adds lots of functionality to your mp3 player including iPods, iRiver and Archos models. A firmware update is of course something that should only be done with extreme precaution because it will void the warranty. Take a look at some of the features that can be added:

  • support for additional sound codecs such as ogg and flac
  • support for games such as Doom, Sokoban and Sudoku
  • support for applications like calculators, battery related and text editors
  • video support (yes even for ipod nanos 1st gen for instance)
  • Gameboy emulator

Installing Rockbox is not as difficulty as it sounds. Take a look at the manual pages which contains all the information you need for all supported mp3 players. Again, you should be very careful before you proceed. Everything is explained in detail and it should not be that much of a problem to install the new firmware. The rockbox forums are also a great way to have any remaining questions answered before making the changes.

  1. So you are looking to rid your girl of these unwanted stalkers when you are drawn to Willow Creek’s Black Mirror Castle. A murder mystery game is a fun way to pass the time during the twenties theme party. Every Halloween party that people remember later in the year by saying things like “Do you remember so-and-so’s
    Halloween party last year.
