Title: Is it possible to install a previous version of Rockbox?
Post by: phil8715 on February 12, 2018, 02:34:16 PM
Hi,

I've just received a Sandisk Sansa Fuze+.

Installed Rockbox 3.14 onto it, but there seems to be a couple of issues and I noticed it's in the status it became unstable.

What I want to know is can I install the previous version of Rockbox 3.13? As I'm not sure if it's compatible.

3.13 is too old for the Fuze+, but there are several years of development builds between 3.13 and 3.14 that work on the Fuze+.  Unfortunately, we only keep a month or so worth of them on the website, so if you want to try something before 3.14 you'll have to build it from source or find an old build somewhere else.

One of the issues is,  I'm playing an album or a couple tracks and I want to exit it, I press the back button but all it does is take me back to the list of tracks I'm currently playing,  I can't back to the main menu where the sd card is. To exit the album I have reboot the device.

Unless I'm doing something wrong.

The other issue is playlists,  I don't understand the instructions as per the SanDisk Sansa Clip+ as I would imagine it's the same both all devices on Rockbox 3.14.

if you're on the while playing screen, the back button should take you to the main menu.  If you push the center button, you should get the current playlist.

They work the same on all devices, although keymaps are obviously different.

I've still not managed to get the playlists to work.

The only way I can do playlists is to plug my device into my pc, open the music folder in the device,  then make a folder with the name of the playlist.

Then open my music explorer then drag and drop the tracks manually into the folder.

It's a boring task, however I've got my playlists in WMP10 but obviously can't sync it to my device.

I don't know much about WMP10, but assuming it can save playlists as M3U files, rockbox will read those.  You may also be able to sync directly to MSC devices, although I'm not sure how it works with WMP.
