Hi there,

I am very confident in terms of installing and using Rockbox, but I
understand that the majority of people who aren't are the visually impaired
users of Rockbox. Also, even those who are not blind will probably only use
the installer if they're "beginning" Rockbox users. In other words, many
people will happily continue to visit the Daily Builds page and simply unzip
the appropriate file to their player.

With this in mind, I would suggest that a custom tree view and a decorative
interface for the installer is getting a bit overkill, assuming that it will
merely be used to install Rockbox and then forgotten.

I would have imagined a nice, simple dialog with maybe two buttons: Install
Rockbox; View the Manual. When either of these buttons were pushed a dialog
could open where you could pick your device from a combo box, check "Also
install device's bootloader" (if applicable) then hit Go.

Grant
