So what's the point in posting battery benchmarks to the benchmark page that are not with official code, and we don't know why they don't work?
since they don't reflect the usual user experience, or a "normal" situation for users[/quoteOf course, 240GB now is not a normal situation for users, but, i think, it will be sometime. And it could be helpful for someone even now.QuoteAnd as you've pointed out, without further testing we have no way of knowing whether this low battery life even can exist for normal users using up to date source.As i understand, "normal users" are usually using latest release, not the current build?Maybe i just don't completely understand the purpose of wiki page. What do you say is more for bug report like "without this patch (although seemingly unrelated) i'm getting terribly low battery life". I've thought that wiki page is for the statistics, so that normal users can see how long their ipod will work under certain conditions with the certain rockbox version; and from this point of view, imho, this results could be useful.Of course, you're welcome to say "wiki page is for something else, and we will not post your benchmarks there", i don't force you to use my results in any way. I've just thought that what i hav already did could be useful for someone.
And as you've pointed out, without further testing we have no way of knowing whether this low battery life even can exist for normal users using up to date source.
Especially since the official 3.2 won't work on a 240GB drive, so the lowered battery life only happens if you use an unsupported build.
Also to allow this drive to work I added/changed these things in the config-ipodvideo.h:/* Add LBA48 for my 240GB */#define HAVE_LBA48/* define this if the device has larger sectors when accessed via USB *//* (only relevant in disk.c, fat.c now always supports large virtual sectors) */#define MAX_LOG_SECTOR_SIZE 16384/* define this if the hard drive uses large physical sectors (ATA-7 feature) *//* and doesn't handle them in the drive firmware */#define MAX_PHYS_SECTOR_SIZE 4096
