And installing Rockbox will void your warranty anyway. After my lousy
experiences with the iRiver RMA department I wouldn't recommend anyone
to buy stuff from iRiver anymore. Although if you're installing
Rockbox, it probably doesn't matter. :-)

(The device refused to charge the internal battery after a bit more
than a year, so I sent it in since the thing is supposed to be under a
two-year warranty, and then they tell me, after letting me wait for two
months, that the thing got damaged because of water (while the thing
*never* got wet or whatever, so it sounds like an excuse to me) and
they want to repair it only if I pay them more money than the thing
actually costed me. Another month later, I still don't have my player
back.)

I'm still tempted to advice you to buy an iAudio. ;-)
