Have you flashed it with Rockbox already? (Didn't sound like so.) Then it'll
be easier, with MiniMon present in the bootloader.

And you're sure it's the flash? No hardware defect?

Yes you can, I did so.

Ahem, not yet. In essence, I used a piece of copper striped prototyping PCB
to build an MMC adapter. The serial signals you'll need are identical to the
ones driving the MMC.

If you have the rockbox bootloader in flash, you only need to hold "Right"
on power-up to have MiniMon ready. If not, you need to pull those LCD lines
low, tricky. I have made a dummy LCD strip with the necessary 3 lines tied
to ground. Tricky to build, but way more easy to use than finding and
tapping those pins.

> Thanks for any help, seems a shame to throw the unit away..

If you can't avoid it, throw it in my direction ;-)
