> 1. Go to www.rockbox.org and click Wiki -> iAudio Port.
> 2. Go to the "Bootloader" section and download the bootloader file. The
> site gives you instructions for saving the file to your Firmware folder on
> the iAudio.
> 3. Click on "Daily builds" on the Rockbox site and find the download for
> the iAudio. The table is a bit confusing but you'll figure it out.
> 4. Unzip the contents of the package to your root on the iAudio drive.
> 5. Finally, go to Wiki -> BlindUsers Index -> Voice files (or something to
> that effect), and download one of the latest voice files under the "Daily
> builds" section. Unzip that to your .rockbox/lang directory.
> 6. Write us back and tell us if voice works!!! :-
