Title: n00b help - H10 6G hang during bootloader
Post by: H10Fool on October 20, 2006, 06:51:36 PM
I've searched for a bit and haven't seen any posts like this. This is my first time trying to use rockbox so I'm not 100% sure what the boot loader screen should look like.

Problem:
After putting everything on the H10, it gets to the boot loader screen and then just sits there and does not load the firmware. I do not see any error code when this happens.

Rockbox boot loader
Version: 20060905-94
iriver H10
ST650211FX

I've tried the last three builds for the H10 (20th, 19th and 18th.)

Just to see what would happen, I removed the firmware leaving only the BL in place. There was no change in behavior.

In one post I read that the .rockbox folder and the rockbox.h10 had to be set as hidden, so I tried that as well.

I also tried a custom BL someone made with the rockbox logo. Same behavior.

I tried the UMS BL (my device is MTP) and got the expected "system files missing" error.

Directory of device:
\.rockbox\
\rockbox.h10
\system\H10.mi4

Now the question, what am I missing? It doesn't sound like anyone else is hitting this so it must be something obvious.

The very same problem here, H10, 5GB... first time that I tried to install rockbox. Tried build 10/31, 10/30 and 10/01 (to see if an earlier version works).

Could it possibly be the bootloader? As it stops during boot without any error message...

Something which might help (or not): When the device is stuck while displaying the above info the harddrive makes some noise (not as loud as when the device is bootet with the original firmware)

Do you have the Pure version(no radio)? Alot of people with these player can't get rockbox to work for an unknown reason.

You could try downloading the latest bootloader from http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/iriver/

There have been some changes to the bootloader recentely and it would be good to know if these have had any affect on the problems reported.

I have been trying to install rockbox onto my H10 5Gb MTP (with FM radio).

It hangs at the following screen:
Rockbox boot loader
Version: 20061219-151(7?only part of the last digit is displayed)
iriver H10 5/6GB
ST650211FX

The only way to turn off the player is to remove the battery.

I have tried all of the bootloader links above and the rockbox version I have installed is rockbox-h10_5gb-20070115 linked from the manual  :).

It's driving me crazy! I hope someone can help as I'd love to have Rockbox.

One other thing, I got it in Thailand.  Post above re: similar problem mentioned it was bought in Japan.  Is there a problem with Asian players?  has anyone got an Asian H10 and successfully installed?

Finally!
It's working on mine.

Once again followed the instructions at:
http://download.rockbox.org/manual/rockbox-h10_5gb/rockbox-buildch2.html#x4-60002 (UMS model)

I was using this build I guess: http://build.rockbox.org/cvsmod/chlog-20070410T160902Z.html
Now it booted right into rockbox.

Goodbye... I am off for fiddling around with my rockbox powered H10.

Seems to me that you are using old builds. The new bootloader looks for the rockbox.h10 file inside the .rockbox folder. delete your rockbox.h10 and then download a build from here: http://build.rockbox.org/ Then extract it to the root of your drive without moving any of the files! report back here, I will be watching!

Sorry... nothing to report.
My last reply was meant to read as: "HOORAY - it is working"

The build I was using was a build from today (2007-04-10 16:09:02).
