Bullseye, please give me as many details as you can so we can try and fix the bootloader code. I'm assuming you are getting that error when trying to load rockbox after following the "Install" instructions above?

What type of D2 is yours?
What capacity flash memory does it have?
Which Cowon firmware version are you using?
Have you tried re-copying the .rockbox folder to your D2?

Thanks,
Andrew

Hi Andrew,

My D2 is the 4Gb version without DAB. ("Vinatge" D2)
I am using the 3.11 version of Rockbox, I followed all the intstructions thoroughly.
When you say re-copying the .rockbox folder what do you mean exactly? I extracted the latest build on my D2 root directly. Maybe I can try to do it again, or how shall I do it?

Thanks for your help so far, i hope I can get to use it.

Yeah, I mean simply repeat Step 5 =)
In the past this seemed to solve issues with the bootloader, as the exact location of the Rockbox binary on the flash memory changes when you re-copy.

EDIT: Repeated step 5, lets see if it works

EDIT2: Same *PANIC* message. Tried twice did not work. Did follow step 5 again without any solution.

Hmmm.
Well there is nothing I can do to help you right now, as I do not understand the bootloader code. Rob (shotofadds) who wrote it is eager to speak to anybody who has trouble with the current bootloader though, so he can try and figure out what needs to be fixed.
So next time he comes here I will ask him to talk to you - hopefully you can help him and hopefully we may be able to get Rockbox working on your D2.

I get the same error message as Bullseye after trying step 5 many times. I just loaded 3.11 successfully and wanted to add rockbox as well. I have a 16 GB legacy. Is there anything I can do to help diagnose the problem?

Thanks for the heads up, and the offer(s) to help.
Please could Bullseye and mountainlion test this Rockbox binary:
[link removed as I don't want it to be downloaded and cause confusion]

Thanks,
Andrew
