D20 looks very similar to the D2 which works flawlessly with rockbox.
Although D2 status is unstable due to potential issues with external SD
memory, I never had any problem with it.
I am only an end user and understand nothing about hacking but I wonder
if you have tried to adapt D2 hacks to the D20 ?
Hardware wise D2 still beats D20 on max sound power but D20 gets beaten
on battery life and of course... availability.

Tshaw !!
