Allow me to quote a little snippet from
http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/NewPort

   First, don't ask Rockbox developers when they are going to port Rockbox to
   your platform. Ports are made by people who want to port, they are not done
   on request.

   Then, assume that only actual owners of the target devices will be involved
   and interested enough to actually contribute to the down-to-metal porting.
   Nobody can port Rockbox to a device he/she doesn't have.

   Porting Rockbox can be everything from hard work to extremely hard and time
   consuming work. Try to gather as many interested friends and fans as
   possible so that the whole burden isn't put on one single human.

   The Rockbox developers can and will try to help out with development,
   advice, hints and other general things, but only as much as they can and if
   they have the time.
