For the time period mentioned, the FM was not stable enough to use. It was
late January 2003 at the earliest, maybe February before we got the
fundamental issues on FM sorted. The firmwares in the email are for
recorder only, not FM. If those fixes don't find a problem, then maybe
later builds may be worth looking at.

For me personally, red led and silent play have been issues since day 1.
Day 1 for me is Jan 13th when I got my FM, and subsequently started
looking at Rockbox a week or so later.
