ummm. I really dont think you would be stepping on any toes if you contacted
Archos to see if they might give you one to get the firmware working on it.
I would wait til after the holidays, but I bet if you talk to whoever
approved the shipping of Rockbox on the cd's you would have a decent chance
of working something out with them. It would be a writeoff for them and they
obviously seem somewhat interested in the work being done here.

It just seems like a pretty good business decision to me, but who knows?

actually it doesn't differ all that much from "normal" recorder files - only
the header is different.

(booting Rockbox) or, more likely, simply ignore the file and boot the
Archos firmware from ROM. In either case, you can always remove the file
from USB the normal way.
