unfortnately, there is no easy way for rockbox and creative to share the storage. If I remember correctly, Creative uses a nonstandard partition record, so in theory I could create a rockbox-only partition, so that the OF and rockbox both work. However this approach has some downsides:
- how do you choose the size dedicated to OF versus dedicated to Rockbox ? can you change it ? how ?
- Rockbox would only be able to access its partition and the OF its partition only (ie you cannot share songs)
If there are enough votes for this approach, with some suggestion on how to choose the rockbox versus OF ratio, I can implement it.
One possiblity for rockbox versus OF size: the bootloader could provide a menu (when pushing some button on boot), which let you choose between, say, 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%. The bootloader could then resize but then both OF and rockbox partition would be erased (ie loss of data). Also that would mean investigating how to format an OF partition but hopefully it can be done.
