What do you mean "none work"? What exactly are you doing, and what exactly is happening?

What do you mean by "I don't get at all?" Please try to be more precise. Do you mean "When I download it, I don't get a file" or "I don't understand what it's asking for" or what?

i dont get at all lol its only missing the word it so i dont get it at all.

i dont get what its asking for because from what i understand its asking for the original firmware file which i kept in another folder just incase which is the h300.hex file

I'm quite certain if you stop and think about it, you'll be able to tell me. There are very few ideas that cannot be expressed with words (what else do you have to express them with?) but you seem intent on using vague statements. Stop and take your time, please.

It's asking you for an H300.hex file, yes. It needs to modify that file. Please try to read the rest of the manual to get a general idea of what it's trying to do.

What does "it didn't work" mean? Did it give an error message? You REALLY need to be more precise. I can't read your mind.

Title: Re: where is the how to install rockbox?
Post by: masterhitaza on February 24, 2008, 08:40:53 PM

Please use real words, as per the forum guidelines. Not words like "b4". If you haven't read the guidelines, you should do so. If you have, be aware they are strictly enforced.

Try the "manual install" section of the installation instructions, and use a firmware version that is specifically one of the ones mentioned as being compatible.

I'm trying to help, but you need to be respectful enough to follow the guidelines you agreed to follow, and patient enough to actually try what we suggest.

If you're going to get pissy, you may as well leave. I don't understand why you expect anyone to want to help you if all you're going to do is be disrespectful to them.

I gave you a suggestion, and instead of trying it, you chose to whine about the fact that we actually have rules here. Deal with it. You've been warned, you violated them again. Once more and I'll just ban you, we really don't need to put up with people who don't care to stand by their agreement.
