Subject: Re: bootloader correction needed

Re: bootloader correction needed

Hi ian,

the 4 MB scrambled file is fine. I had that too.

the discriminator parameter to scramble.exe to specify the device is
simply "-iriver".
I think all irivers (with rockbox up to now) have the same scrambeling.

To be drop-dead-sure, you should compare the md5 checksum. That's what
it's made for.
openssl can do md5 for example

And finally, I think things like these should go over to the user list
instead of the developers list.

Hope that helps, lImbus
