Title: M3 manual ??
Post by: darkavatar1470 on June 19, 2008, 11:19:17 AM
Hi, I was excited to see that the M3 finally supported by rockbox on the frontpage list,
But I was looking around and couldn't find anything about M3 on the iAudio Port page??
and there isn't a manual for it either ??

or should I just follow X5l 's manual and just use the m3 bin file?

I haven't personally installed  rockbox before, so I want to be sure about the process before I start....

There currently isn't a manual for the M3 available. Mostly due to the reason that the M3 only has a remote as display and the current manual assumes a main display (and doesn't deal with remotes at all). As usage is quite similar for all players -- except for the thing limited by hardware -- you should be able to get a general view by using almost any other manual. I'd suggest using the X5 / M5 manual as those players are quite similar to the M3 ;)

For installation you can use Rockbox Utility. It should be guiding you enough if you have some basic computer knowledge.

Thanks for the quick reply !!
I read up on the X5L/M5 manual and try out the Rockbox Utility sometime next week.
I'll notify you guys if any thing come up.
