I've just been trying to install rockbox on my new iAudio M5. I copied the files exactly the way the manuals said I should but when I turn on the device I get the old firmware, and nothing seems to happen.
Perhaps I'm not reading the instructions correctly, I've especially puzzled with the sentence:
"Turn the X5/M5 off, remove the USB cable and insert the charger. The X5/M5 will automatically upgrade the flash with the Rockbox bootloader"
What's the "charger"? I charge my player from the usb port (I don't know of any other option). What I did was copying the file, turning of the player, disconnectiong the cable and turning on the player again. As I said - nothing happens.
