I take it that means something like this:
http://warmcat.com/milksop/cheaptag.html won't work... Hmmm... I'm
willing to spend a week researching how to build a cheap(er) cable but
not really willing to spend $150 to get rockbox running on my $45
player... I'd just buy a $150 player that already supported rockbox.

I'll start digging for information on BDM with that particular
coldfire processor.

As far as other users of this player go, I doubt there are that many.
It seems to only have been sold widely in Korea and the UK. MPeye
(the OEM) doesn't even have an english language website
(www.mpeye.co.kr).

At any rate, I've got enough to start working on it. I'll at least
take a good long look at the firmware upgrade and see what I can find
about BDM.
