Sitwon Posted July 19, 2010 Share Posted July 19, 2010 So right now I'm on a bus on my way home from The Next HOPE and I had some time on my hand so I updated the Rockbox install on msy Sansa e280 to the latest build. Now I had kind of dropped off on the Rubber Ducky development as a result of a busy work load and dropping off the IRC because I felt DD3 was being an argumentative douche. But tonight I noticed something that has me excited about it all over again. Apparently beginning in Rockbox 3.5 players with USB support can be used as USB HID devices. It works really well out of the box and Rockbox has a great developer community so I think I have a new platform I'm going to use for Ducky development. It's super inconspicuous to plug in a MP3 player to computer to download a song, transfer a file, charge a dead battery, etc... A Rockbox'd mp3 player plugged into a computer raises fewer flags than a odd looking duck plugged into a system, and the mp3 player already has onboard storage, a display, and plenty of buttons. There is even a text editor in Rockbox so you could customize your script before plugging in to run it. Rockbox is really a whole OS for your MP3 player, a desktop system the size of a pack of gum. http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/MajorChanges http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/10468 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
