I second that. I don't do much rockbox coding, but having everything
in git is nice because you can try things out fast (create a new
branch), without downloading and copying complete svn checkouts
around.

If you like interactive debugging, you can use GDB with every
simulator build. I use Emacs for editing which has a nice interface
for GDB.
