Wow. Just.... wow. This is awesome. I'm overwhelmed.
I had a Sansa Clip, which I lost. Then a Sansa Clip+, now broken. No Clip+ available any more, so I bought a Sansa Jam, which was horrible. Tried to get help on their forums, and it appears there are some limitations that cannot be overcome. So I sent it back. Luckily, a good friend gave me his Clip+, but I managed to break it, too. So I got another Clip+ on eBay, cheap, with a broken audio connector, which I was able to fix, but some buttons do not work well. But I also got yet another Clip+ on eBay, and it came with ROCKbox, which I never had heard about.
It starts faster. It has six lines of display instead of three. It has tons of options. It can find music also by album artist. It supports all sorts of file formats. When connecting to a PC, it does not automatically re-create the database. It.... it can play chess now.
All you developers of this great software, thank you so much for this.
I still want to buy yet another player, for my friend (whose player I broke). Seems like I could go for some cheaper model, and simply put ROCKbox onto it. Instead of having to read all those Amazon reviews and find out whether the sorting would work reliably (it often does not it seems).
You made me so happy
