pretty sure. checked it pretty thoroughly on the rockbox site,
wikipedia and the apple site. Also rockbox utility detects it as a
color/photo model.

my next step will be to put a new partition table on there and
reformat the disk. If I take a copy of all the files on /dev/sdb2 will
this be sufficient to restore the system to its original state or do I
need to do a block level copy of the whole 60GB?
