Title: Help getting new cowon d2+ tommorrow
Post by: readbmr on May 05, 2010, 02:26:47 PM
Hi, i just want to ask a question, im getting a new cowon d2+ tommorrw and want to install rockbox. ok i wont no what firmware it has on it untill i get it, but can i take it i can do a manual install ? as ive downloaded the .rockbox already

Or do i have to have the correct rockbox version and bootloader for it to work, also would be good to have a dual bootloader if that is possible so that it can run straight away when turning on the d2+ / not to worried about a dual bootloader but any advice please as i believe from what  ive been reading that rockbox is simpler to install onto a d2+ rather than an ordianry d2 if im correct,

Anyway can anybody point me in the rite direction aswell to what i need to download/links etc and also when will the automatic instalaton be up and running for rockbox for the d2+ as then it would be good to be able to install new flash themes/skins etc from rockbox.org loader..
thankyou all and hope to get some answers soon to the above as then i can be ready to put it on tommorrow when i get my new cowon d2+

All instructions are in the manual: http://download.rockbox.org/daily/manual/rockbox-cowond2.pdf

If there is anything specific with the instructions that is giving you a problem then please ask.

Please note that if you use any instructions other than the ones we provide and you have a problem, then we do not support it.  The same applies to random patched files you use.

Please use the official documentation and files.

I thought, as it's considered an unstable port anyway, to link to the most active users

There is no problem with other communities, but as we can't check out all instructions that are floating around the web to see if they are correct/outdated etc, we find it easier just to say we only support those done with ours.  We of course welcome improvements etc. to ours :)

Thanks very much, we prefer to err on the side of caution :)
