Re: IRIVER H320 AND ROCKBOX

From: David Wright <gymnastdave_at_sbcglobal.net>

Hi,
I finally got rockbox to work on my h320. It worked for a while and now I'm
having trouble getting the player to boot in to rockbox opposed to the
original iriver firmware. How do I resolve this issue? Thank you all in
advance for all your help.
Dave
