Well, first, since the bother is not so significant (uploading a single
file to your jb), it's easiest to try and see.
Have you browsed the user manual? http://rockbox.haxx.se/manual/
For me, the the biggest changes are:
- more stable playback (far fewer hangs for me)
- instant-load playlists
- working track/playlist resume
- configurable while-playing-screen
The most commonly missed features from the Archos firmware:
- file management (delete, etc)
These features will eventually appear in rockbox, of course.
Just try it - there's no harm, and rockbox also allows you to
dynamically switch between it and the old firmware anyway.
