I have a U.S. H300. If I install the Rockbox bootloader, will I still be able to play files protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM)?The only answer that we can provide at this point is that we don't know. For the reasons explained above, Rockbox does not support playing of DRM-protected files. It is well-documented that installing a non-U.S. firmware on a U.S. H300 permantently removes the player's ability to play DRM files. Since the H300 bootloader is made by patching non-U.S. firmware, it is most likely that flashing to Rockbox will also permanently remove the U.S. H300's ability to play DRM files. However, this has not yet been tested. It is possible that we will find a way in the future to flash Rockbox without impacting the U.S. players' DRM capability. Until then, however, if support for DRM is important to you, you should not flash the Rockbox bootloader.
Will my H3Mod? skinned firmware work with Rockbox?Yes. First you download a clean firmware file. Then you patch it with the bootloader program. (fwpatcher.exe) After this, you run it through H3Mod? and apply your skin to the patched firmware.
I've installed Rockbox, but I want to use the iriver firmware. Do I need to uninstall Rockbox and re-flash to iriver?No. Rockbox has a dual-boot feature. To boot to the iriver firmware instead of Rockbox: Hold the REC button and press and hold the ON button. To return to Rockbox, turn off the player and turn it back on without holding REC.
