build that doesn't crash/freeze

(1/2) > >>

I have given up on Rockbox for the iPod 4g color...  Unless someone can  recommend a build that doesn't freeze/crash routinely.  I can't take it anymore.  All I want is a build that plays 190k vbr lame mp3s without freezing/crashing!!  Is that too much to ask!?!?

Yes, it is too much to ask.

Seriously, don't talk that way unless you're willing to do something about it yourself. With a little research you can find out that iPod work is on hold until the 3.0 release gets out the door for iRivers. So, no bugs have been fixed on iPod for MONTHS and they won't be until other, currently more important, things are done.

So either have patience, work on it yourself, or switch back. But yes, asking for a stable version when people are specifically NOT supposed to be working on it is indeed too much.

That's about what I expected to get in response from you.  After a period of cooling off, I realized just how ridiculous a post that was.  In all honesty, I wasn't trying to be a dimwit or break anyone's balls.  I'm justing trying to track down the most stable build.  I don't need any bells and whistles.  I just want to be able to play some gapless audio.  Thanks kindly.

I don't think there's yet been a *truly* stable build for the 4G.

But, some of the developers have a few ideas where to look, and once 3.0 is out the door, I'm sure this issue will be one of the major concerns, as before you can work on improving the performance, you have to have it actually performing. :)

I've been having very good luck with the 6-08-06 build.  It went from freezing 2-3 times an hour with the most current builds to maybe 2-3 times a week when I reverted back to it.

I need gapless playback as well, or I would consider my ipod an extremely expensive paper-weight  :)
