If you follow the installation instructions on rockbox.org, there risk
of bricking your player is near to zero. Just make sure that your device
doesn't lose power while upgrading to the modified firmware.

It depends on what you expect. The file browser uses very small icons
beside the files and the WPS can display abritrary bitmaps:

Of course Rockbox doesn't magically enable your display to show colors,
but the dev-team did an awesome job to make more scales of gray possible
than iriver intended.
