  • Apple: iPod 1g through 5.5g, iPod Mini, iPod Nano 1g
  • Archos: Jukebox 5000, 6000, Studio, Recorder, FM Recorder, Recorder V2 and Ondio
  • Cowon: iAudio X5, X5V, X5L, M5, M5L, M3 and M3L
  • iriver: iHP100 series, H100 series, H300 series and H10 series
  • MPIO: HD300
  • Olympus: M:Robe 100
  • Packard Bell: Vibe 500
  • SanDisk: Sansa c200, e200 and e200R series, Fuze, Clip, Clip+ and Clip Zip
  • Toshiba: Gigabeat X and F series

Unstable ports

Rockbox runs on these players, but is incomplete, less usable or has problems that limit it to advanced users:

Unusable ports

Work has begun on porting Rockbox to these players, but much remains before they are usable:

2014-12-09 32b4558: iPod Classic: initialize USB power configuration

This patch limits the drawn USB current to 100/500mA, instead of the actual 200/1000mA settings. It also initializes other USB power related GPIOs.

Solves some USB disconnect issues: FS #12990, FS #12956. I am using a powered USB HUB with no problems (Vusb=5.05V unloaded), but there are lots of USB disconnects when using the motherboard USB ports
(Vusb=4.91V), this patch solves all my issues.

Actually, it seems that the USB current drain is limited to 1000mA, when a load peak occurs most USB2 ports deliver more than 500mA, as current consumption increases the USB voltage decreases, an excesive voltage drop produces USB disconnections. Limiting USB current drain to 500mA also limits the voltage drop, preventing subsequent USB failures.

Anyway, to minimize voltage drop, it is recommended to use quality cables and preferably connect to USB ports with higher Vusb.
