Title: Phillips player bootloaders
Post by: saratoga on January 17, 2010, 07:34:26 PM
Since the wiki instructs users to compile their own bootloaders even though many of the ports are reasonably stable, I decided to post binaries.

I don't have these players so no promises that they work.

The sa9200 and the hdd1630/1830 ports are probably stable enough to be have their status upgraded to "unstable."

The only minor thing missing from the hdd16x0 ports was radio detection for the 1620 models without the fm radio. I never found a way to dynamically check for the tea5767 chip so that two different builds weren't required for those players.

The current sa9200 installation is not really user friendly because there's no UMS USB mode in the OF. I had a modified bootloader that uses sendfirm for the initial install (similar to the Gigabeat S, I think). I'll have to try to get that working again and do some testing.

For now, the hdd6330 should stay listed as "unusable" because it still needs major work on the touchpad before all the buttons are fully functioning.

I'll be willing to test a sendfirm-like util on the SA9200. Unfortunately, my HDD1630 isn't working well, so I can't really test that out too much.
