1.) The original firmware (version 1.28 in your case) won't get
off your unit, if you try rockbox or any other firmware. The
original firmware is in the AJB's ROM and cannot be altered.
So if you wan't it back, simply delete the on-disk-firmware
2.) The firmware version 1.27d, that is downloadable from Archos'
web site, is exactly the same as the built-in 1.28.
Ok, three things:
3.) If you try rockbox, you won't have back the original firmware.
Trust me. If you wan't to use recording, you'll have to wait
a bit, though. Or use ROLO and boot 1.28/1.27d on the fly.
PS: This should be in the FAQ, shouldn't it? It's soley mentioned
on the download page http://rockbox.haxx.se/download/
