I just got a iRiver HD player, and its lovely. As much as I love Rockbox, I
dont think there is a lot of need for replacement firmware, as unlike the
offical Archos effort, the iRiver firmware can hold its head up high as the
firmware is comparable to Rockbox as it is IMHO.

I cant agree about the joystick either, I quite like it, but i guess its a
personal thing...

hardware too. The LCD remote especially was very nice. The navigation button
on the main unit however put me off completely, since you must navigate by
carefully nudging it sideways instead of just pushing arrow buttons. I found
it very easy to accidentally push it down instead of to the side.

firmware, but I haven't seen anyone make a go of it.
