Title: Add a 240GB iPod Video "monster build" with each new release?
Post by: TexasRockbox on November 23, 2009, 02:26:06 PM
While a daily build of a 240GB may not be necessary, perhaps the addition of an "official" 240GB iPod Video build with each release might be a good idea for those who have and are planning to upgrade to 240GB instead of relying on builds of uncertain origin.

Thank you for your consideration!

I think that Unsupported Builds is the proper place to list these since it's not a standard hardware configuration.  I don't think that it's desired for the build system to start generating builds for modified players. 

Unsupported Builds should still provide the source for the build, so you should be able to see exactly what went into it.  If you don't trust this, then you should look into building your own Rockbox.  Then you will know that it comes from a trusted source.  ;)

There are many hardware mods of Rockbox possible in the build system that we don't provide builds for - RTC on the H100, backlight on the Ondio, ...

It is generally felt that if you are capable of modifying the hardware then you are capable of building, and we don't want to get overrun by providing builds for every possible hardware mod.

Ok, fair enough.  Thank you your time and responses!
