You update my player by running a special utility, that copies a file
from the root into flash memory. Normally it just boots right off of
this memory. Does this mean that I need do more initialization in my
code than Rockbox does? Also, can I expect that most of the startup code
will be the same as Rockbox?

Yeah, life can be so misleading, huh? :)
