You can boot to the original iRiver firmware by ensuring that the unit
is turned off, then keeping the record (lower left one) pressed while
you switch the unit on.
Another thing worth trying is inserting the USB cable, then switching
the unit on. The Rockbox bootloader should then enter USB mode and let
you access it via your computer. If this does not work, something
is seriously wrong.
Hope you get it going again!
