I tried the ipod linux/podxilla and i didn't like it. 6 months later i'm getting sick of dealing with itunes so i tried Rockbox, I think i'm in wub :wub: . But i've got a few questions. Is there a way to bypass directories for songs. I don't want to listen to one section, I want to listen to all my music on shuffle!

I agree, rockbox kicks some major ass. I dual boot rockbox/original firmware on my iAudio X5. I almost always use rockbox for music though, only for videos do I use OF.

the apple original firmware doesn't actuelly work for me, it freezes in approxomitely 5 seconds. But who needs videos when they have to be MP4?

I'm testing some fresh codecs for Rockbox for hcs.

He's had an ADX codec accepted into CVS. He's also currently making an NSF codec for RB.
It is indeed a funky bit of kit. I believe to play all artists in shuffle play you have 2 main options:
create one folder with all your music in... messy I know

or: create a tag cache... I don't actually know full specifics on that since I'm new to RockBox myself.
