Rockbox only runs on the models to which it has already been crafted to run
on. We mention the currently supported models first on the rockbox web site
front page.

Making it run on new targets is a lot of work for every new model and not
something that is easily done by anyone. Unless of course the new model is
only a very minor variation of an already supported player.

There is some progress on ports to other players, but we can't estimate when
they are mature enough to be counted as "working" or even be sure that they
ever will be.

I've not heard nor seen anyone mention any Rockbox work for the Oono MiniDAB,
not even any early research work. Don't hold your breath! ;-)
