Could you say what exactly do you expect to do :
        - increase the MP3 buffer ?
        - decrease the battery consumption ?

And do you have any idea of how hard it'll be to modify its archos ?
It will be nice to make some photos of the RAM that could be used in the archos m, to
see how big they are ?

I'd like to get more details about the aim, finality of such hardware modification, but it is
always interresting to see how a such device could be improved ?

Another thing just for the fun: I just buy an X-Box and I did found in the net a "Linux X-Box"
project , lets go for opensource :)

Bye
