Default Custom patched Rockbox build for the Cowon iAudio X5

Not sure if there's any demand for this, but I assume there are still some people like me out there, using the X5 on a daily basis. So I thought I'd share my custom Rockbox builds here, if anyone's interested.

Included patches are:
  • FS#00000 - Meier Crossfeed v4 (removes the default crossfeed and implements both Bertrik's Meier v2 and v3 crossfeeds)
  • FS#00000 - Channel Swap (selectable in sound settings > channel configuration, great for IEMs that are more comfortable with the left bud in the right ear, and vice versa)
  • FS#00000 - Keymap changes (long press on play/pause goes to file browser instead of stopping playback)
  • FS#09305 - Context sensitive backlight on key press
  • FS#11052 - SID playback in stereo
  • FS#12075 - Add timeout to quickscreen

Download: 120414-449dff4M-iaudiox5 (FS#9305, FS#11052, FS#12075, Meier v4, channel swap, keymap) - dfkt

You can also try my X5 bootloader. It boots the X5 on a short flick of the power slider (contrary to the default bootloader which requires to hold the power slider and shows an annoying and faulty "shutting down" message when doing a short flick): cowon-x5-rockbox-bootloader-v4-dfkt.zip

y'know with all the power saving being discussed in the world today it still surprises me that the screen manufacturers dont try and develop variable dimming on a pixel by pixel level.
it would be such a useful feature that would provide massive power savings if implemented properly by the gui's.
closest ive ever seen is the firefox plugin 'turn off the lights' which blackens the whole screen apart from the video being watched, great feature but hardware level pixel adjustment would be so much more power efficient.

Thanks. I just pulled out my X5 again and updated to your patches. Now that the ipod classic can be RB'd, I don't know how much use my X5 will get, but I may use it to hold my Grateful Dead library. Thanks again.
