I can't see Sony in the rockbox installer utility...
Can someone help me with this or explain to me why its not on the list?

speachy:
I don't think any of the Sony players are supported by rbutil, or have a model-specific manual.  So the text on the front page is wrong, and all of the Sonys are considered "unstable".

Infinite7Mind:
And I who really had my hopes up :) It says in the 3.15 release notes https://www.rockbox.org/wiki/ReleaseNotes315 that the Sony NWZ Linux devices are now stable, I don't know what they mean by that?

speachy:
"Stable" in rockbox parlance means that everything works (and works well), and there is both a manual and automatic installer support in rbutil.

The Sony targets generally work quite well, but there remains no manual, and there is no automatic installer support.  So to get rockbox onto them, you will need to do a bunch of things by hand.  It's documented, and works, but isn't automatic.

(The same can be said about most other recent targets too.. the only reason they're not "stable" is that automatic installation features aren't available..)
