The original .ajz from archos is only needed, if you want to rolo to it from
rockbox.

The .ajz_ file was a first workaround to get rockbox loaded if you boot the
original firmware via F1 but not if you boot the normal flashed rockbox
version. Archos firmware looks for a ajbrec.ajz immediately after start, but
it only compares the first 10 chars, so ajbrec.ajz_ is recognized as well.
The first flashed rockbox versions loaded ajbrec.ajz as well, but didn't
recognize ajbrec.ajz_ intentionally.
You don't want to load rockbox from disk if it's already in flash.

New flashed versions don't load ajbrec.ajz files anymore on startup.

The flashing plugin is still used if you "play" any ucl-file, but it is
started automatically (like the viewer plugin is started when you "play" a
txt-file)
