It is more complex than that, read carefully this wiki page:
http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/WebHome?topic=IriverBoot

Be warned though, an omission or a little mistake can render your player
useless.
Also, if the svn has a bug in the bootloader, it can make your target
unbootable even if it's not your fault. That's why Rockbox "releases"
bootloader. Developers want to make sure that a specific and tested
bootloader will be issued to all users. So be extra careful before
attempting anything.
