hi!

from the openjukebox (http://openjukebox.free.fr) forum:

>Hello!
>Im I blind, or is the source code to a working firmware-replacement for the xclef player not available anywhere on this site?

>Ported Rockbox is one of the solution we are curently looking.
>We are looking also about µCLinux which have the Coldfire MCF5249 fully supported.
>Our effort are still at the reverse engineering phase and we don't communicate about it due to stupid laws from some >countries.

damn - is this whole openjukebox project just "vaporware" ?
what differs openjukebox from rockbox project regarding reverse engineering ?
what did rockboxers do different from openjukebox reversengineerers ?
did rockbox ever get a problem with laws while putting archos internals "online" ?
do openjukebox people do illegal things or are they just a little bit too careful bunch of people ?

if they need a monkey for releasing the information they reverse engineer and to put his name under - i`m happy if i could take this
role, because i`m in need! i need a real firmware for my xclef - and rockbox is what i want :D

regards
roland
