Subject: Charging screen vote for RomBox & a small question :)
From: DarkAngel (DarkAngel_at_omega.dnsalias.org)

I vote for the charging screen too ;)
I have a small question about the archos firmware you (Jörg) include in your
release package : when pressing the F1 key I got the 1.28 firmware of Archos
but on their web site (http://www.archos.com/download/firmware.html) the
only update for the recorder is 1.27d !
where did you get the 1.28 ?
