Rockbox Development > New Ports

Shanling Q1

<< < (4/5) > >>

7o9:
The manual understandably is very generic so some pointers:

- Rockbox Utility support or a release build do not exist yet, you need a 'dev build' from the link on the top left of the Rockbox site.
- Make sure your sd card is fat32. exfat will not work.
- Windows users need to install 'Zadig' for direct usb access support.
- Put the bootloader.q1 file on your sd card before running jztool, you need to install it from the bootloader menu launched by jztool.
- You can get additional fonts here: https://www.rockbox.org/download/byhand.cgi (it does not matter the q1 is not listed, the fonts are the same for all players so pick any).

After succesfully installing, I really recommend turning on the 'Absolute Point' touchscreen mode so you can select items directly in the menus and file lists instead of using 3x3 mode.

'Touchscreen mode' is burried in General Settings -> Display -> Touchscreen Settings.

Hi.
I'm writing to this thread because I'm a lucky new owner of this beautiful little player (I have an iPod Video with rockbox since 2006, but it has broken :( ).
I'm installed rockbox manually on the Q1 without any problems and it is working very well.
I've uploaded a Theme for this player based on the one I've used in iPod for many years.
About this port, the few things I noticed are:
 - There are no battery estimated time.
 - There are no disk activity (in this case the SD card).
 - For me, the height of the menu items it's to big.
 - It would be nice if the keys were locked via the power button, the screen will never turn on, like the hold button in iPod. This will permit to disable the turn on of the screen on track change in case of the buttons locked.
 - It would be nice too if there is an option to activate the "line-out" like in the original firmware, in rockbox the volume has to be adjusted to the maximum level manually (or via a cfg file in shortcuts.txt)
All the previous points are not essential, but would be nice to have it :)
Finally, thanks for this port!

Glad you found it a smooth ride! And thank you for your theme contribution. I think now we're officially up to 4 users   :D

Known issue, will be fixed eventually. The power management IC used in the X1000 targets is able to report the real-time current consumption and I was hoping to use that to report battery runtime more accurately, based on the actual usage. The Q1's also got a separate, dedicated battery monitor chip which can provide percentage charge & estimated runtime directly, but it's bugged (in multiple ways) and maybe more trouble than its worth if it ends up being no more accurate than Rockbox's estimates.

Sounds like a bug. I'll try to get it fixed soon.

Agreed. The height can be changed in General Settings > Display > Touchscreen Settings > Line Padding in Lists. Personally, I use 24px but the default works out to something crazy, like 66 px (it's derived from DPI, poorly). Guess I should fix the broken default.

Keylock is mapped to the power button but you need to configure it in General Settings > System > Advanced Key Lock. For the backlight, you need to go to Display > LCD settings > Backlight exemptions. Also, the keylock only works in the WPS in order to map the power button to 'back' in the menus.

Well, it seems the Q1's DAC always outputs via an integrated headphone amp so it doesn't really have a line out in a strict sense. I did determine conclusively that the original firmware merely sets the volume to 100% when you choose line out mode. That's why Rockbox doesn't have a line out mode -- it wouldn't make much sense as you can accomplish the same thing by volume control. But I get why having an easy setting is nice.

Thanks for your quick answer!
I'll check your suggestions and wait for possible bug fixes  :)

I do not think that is an answer to the question.

I have the same request, when Key Lock is on, I would like the screen not to be turned on at all when touched.

Additionally, but this is different, I would like the LCD to be turned off immediately when I turn on Key Lock.
