Title: "Rockbox-Vortex", the unofficial IHIFI 770c port: Anyone know anything about it?
Post by: Zaune on February 13, 2017, 05:02:12 PM
While researching whether my shiny new 770c could use Rockbox I came upon this website (http://xvtx.ru/rockbox/index.htm). Evidently it's an unsupported build; installation instructions are a bit sparse (none for the 770c specifically, or for any OS other than Windows), although someone on Head-Fi provides some slightly better ones here (http://www.head-fi.org/t/768396/rockbox-for-the-xuelin-ihifi-960-a-primer), and it's not mentioned in the Rockbox wiki at all.

It would be really nice to have some better firmware for this thing, but I'm extremely wary of bricking an £85 music player. Am I worrying too much?

This looks really interesting- I've been visiting this forum a lot over the past few days after my faithful Clips and Zips are finally giving out (headphone jack) :( Would much rather spend £70 on something new than an over-inflated 2nd hand Clip+/Zip. Though am also watching the AGPTek thread with interest...

It is worth being cautious. I got a xduoo X3 and installed the vortex rockbox. It kind of works, but not completely, and the key functionality I wanted (voice files) doesn't work. I'm currently debating whether to wait and hope for a fix, or sell it.
