These changes are for discussion purposes only.
I didn't go to the trouble of making the menus respect the Global keys
yet.

Not "random" resets. Keyboard scanning is set to a faster rate and
rockbox was detecting the OFF key too soon. Fixed now.

Grayscale?? The LCD does not have a grayscale mode that I know of.

Give it a try. The main purpose of it is that it should be easy to
use without looking at the LCD. There are 4 main functions in rockbox:
Browse
Sound settings
Menus
WPS

Each one is assigned a "Global" key:
On
F1
F2
F3

The shound settings screen is vertical so Vol Up and Down is kept on
the UP/Down keys, as it is while on the WPS

Nokia interface is good because it's simple, not because it is
"graphical"
