As far as I could see, there aren't any firmware updates for it
online. Is there any method of upgrading the firmware mentioned in the
manual (or in the firmware itself)?
Without a way to upload your code, a rockbox port becomes much more
difficult - you'd have to start searching for buffer overflows and the
like.

If the manufacturer's website doesn't have the datasheet, you can
occaisionally find them on sites dedicated to hosting datasheets. But
yes, googling like mad helps. :)
