Hi Mickey,

It is inevitable that the IHP 120, 140 Iriver jukebox will have rockbox
fully working on it. From what I have read to date, The stumbling block
right now is the Koddex. (forgive me devs with the spelling)

This needs to be complete as that is what supports the playing of MP3, WAV,
OGG files etc.

If you need to have rockbox with speech your better off trying to pick up an
Archos Player, Studio, Recorder V1, Recorder V2, FM recorder or an Ondio.
They are still available on EBay for a good price as Sarah has mentioned.

BTW: I have so much faith in these developers that I have already purchased
an Iriver IHP 140 in great anticipation of the full Rockbox port. In fact,
you can use rockbox on the Iriver right now but there is no speech and it is
not recommended for novis users.

hth...rocker
