Slightly confused with all the different models and hardware revisions, some of which seem to have issues like background noise / hiss / clicks. I primarily care about audio quality and Rockbox compatibility. Which model and hardware rev should I aim for?

I own a Fuze+ and I dislike the touchpad control, it doesn't always do what you want and sometimes it does things you don't want... wink.gif

But apart from that it's a nice player with Rockbox support already (it's experimental but useable). It has a standard mirco USB socket and a microSD-slot. As SDHC and SDXC are almost fully compatible, in theory this allows you to upgrade your storage above the 32GB limit of SDHC by using microSDXC cards. The biggest microSDXC cards have 64GB, plus the 16GB of the biggest Fuze+ means you might get a maximum storage capacity of 80GB. Of course it comes with a price and I don't know if it works.

The technical specs are nice and it's even capable of playing decently compressed videos. Too bad Rockbox doesn't support video playback, at least no up-to-date video playback of H.264 material, who's got movies in MPEG still?

On a last note though: Somehow I managed to destroy the bootloader and the original firmware so I recently had to unbrick it via Linux, the complete show with downloading official firmware, Rockbox git sources, compiling the bootloader and tools and using them to get everything in order again.
