Not sure what you mean by this; the h320 works very well indeed with
Rockbox.

Not at all. Rockbox resides entirely on disk, so upgrading the system
firmware will not affect your rockbox installation. You will need to
(once-only) hack the iriver firmware - using the supplied tools - in
order to actually boot rockbox, of course.

Once you've done that, the unit will boot rockbox by default; you can
also choose to boot iriver firmware, by holding down "record" whilst
powering on.
