Title: I finally got my Gigabeat F20 restored.
Post by: berkeliox on August 13, 2017, 04:21:52 PM
Hello, everyone!

I'm very glad to say that, after 12 years, I was finally able to restore my F20.
I found the original system folders inside a very old backup HDD.

If someone is still looking forward to restoring it, please let me know :D

Its been a decade since I did much with the gigabeat, but can't you used the dummy ones here for rockbox?

Or is there something you need the original for?

I'm not sure. Actually I tried to use the dummy I found here, but I didn't worked. I had even bought a new HDD on aliexpress just for getting rockbox and nothing happened neither. I guess there was still some hidden folders that got replaced with the files I found.

Ah, the Gigabeat F.  "Old reliable".

I still have two functional players - one with a recent RB dev build, one vanilla.  F256 on the left!
