Basically it goes like this:

1. Patch a firmware using fwpatcher or the commandline tools.

2. Flash that firmware with the iriver firmware upgrade process.

"Step 4: Install it on the iriver
Just follow the normal Firmware Upgrade procedure. You should now have a
boot loader that tries to load Rockbox from disk when you start the player."
*What is the normal firmware upgrade procedure for IRiver?

3. Install daily/bleeding edge build onto harddisk.
done

What am I missing here? When I patched the firmware do I need to rename the
resulting file?

Cheers...rocker
