Hi Jörg,

> You have to use Bootbox, though

I think I already use it.

wiki says:

"There are three tests:

   1. When you F1-restart the box, is should come up with "Rockbox | Rescue boot" and start your ajbrec.ajz from disk."

the F1 - rescue boot is working, and when i try to flash a daily rombox.ucl, it says

image at 28KB
Checked:
File OK.

..i will try it again, I am pressing F2... complete!

It works! uuuh! only 1,666 MB buffer, i think its better for daily use to go back to an older build with 1,8 MB buffer...

agreed. In the "early time" every byte of buffer usage was well discussed in the mailing list...

>Else we may end up with a fork, something very nasty.

Perhaps I (we) should simply use an good, old build and let the archoses die...
