Build Your Own Rockbox

1. Clone 'rockbox' from git (or extract a downloaded archive).

$ git clone git://


$ tar xjf rockbox.tar.bz2

2. Create a build directory, preferably in the same directory as the firmware/
and apps/ directories. This is where all generated files will be written.

$ cd rockbox
$ mkdir build
$ cd build

3. Make sure you have mips/m68k/arm-elf-gcc and siblings in the PATH. Make sure
that you have 'perl' in your PATH too. Your gcc cross compiler needs to be
a particular version depending on what player you are compiling for. These
can be generated using the script in the /tools/ folder of the

$ which arm-elf-eabi-gcc
$ which perl

4. In your build directory, run the 'tools/configure' script and enter what
target you want to build for and if you want a debug version or not (and a
few more questions). It'll prompt you. The debug version is for making a
gdb version out of it. It is only useful if you run gdb towards your target

$ ../tools/configure

5. *ploink*. Now you have got a Makefile generated for you.

6. Run 'make' and soon the necessary pieces from the firmware and the apps
directories have been compiled, linked and scrambled for you.

$ make
$ make zip

7. unzip the on your music player, reboot it and

If you want to build for more than one target, just create several build
directories and create a setup for each target:

$ mkdir build-fuzeplus
$ cd build-fuzeplus
$ ../tools/configure

$ mkdir build-xduoox3
$ cd build-xduoox3
$ ../tools/configure
