There have been reports of SD cards becoming unusable after being used with Rockbox on the D2. I’m using one made by a chap called Soar There is only basic touchscreen support. Well, a lot of this is going to depend on your phones and source files. This provides a dual-boot mechanism between Rockbox and the Cowon firmware to boot Rockbox, set the HOLD switch immediately after power on. The touchscreen can be used in two modes, either a 3×3 grid mode which divides the screen into areas to emulate a set of physical buttons the default setting , or “absolute point” mode where the touchscreen is used to point to items on the screen.
Going from Punisher’s suggestion in this thread of tweaking the EQ to -5 flat, the bass has better response and is deeper but however with this setting I felt that the mids and treble were recessed as a result.
Evidence of this is from KromaXamorK’s post here in the ‘Wow! Well, after some self-experimentation and reading a bit on what others have tried, I feel the following setup is the best setup for the D2 to get the most out of it soundwise. It merely patchworks it. Your username or email address: You will need a copy of your current Cowon firmware, ie.

I bumped up band 3 to band 5 left to right by 2 to counter this so my final EQ is: I am interested in music only. There is only basic touchscreen support.
When reception is strong, the D2’s functionality is flawless — the crisp audio quality will give your MP3s a run for their money. Pop into Crave for a first look at this incredibly promising new model. The touchscreen can be used in two modes, either a 3×3 grid mode which divides the screen into areas to emulate a set of physical buttons the default settingor “absolute point” mode where the touchscreen is used to point to items on the screen.
When reception gets low, however, the sound of a fluctuating digital signal is as annoying as eating bees. Post 9 of Don’t show this again. I have some Denon c’s, which are quite balanced all-round so it makes it good for experimenting with the settings. Only using risk old, low-capacity SD cards until we are satisfied the driver is safe to use. Further work is required to make the UI more usable with a touchscreen in general.
