Great stuff!!!!! I've been following the updates about the reflash project,
and it's now finally there!!! You're an awesome guy, Jörg. I won't be trying
the reflash just yet, though. Call me scared. But my JBR20 is still under
I have a suggestion. Maybe it is a good idea to mention in the docs, that
the flash chip can be reprogrammed at least 1,000 times, 10,000 times being
more likely, maybe even 100,000 times. There seems to be a misconception
among some people that flash memory wears out much faster than that.

Subject: Rockbox in Flash is released
| I am confident enough now to release this tooling. Currently only for the
| JBR20. You can find my FAQ and instructions here:
| It hopefully tells you all you'd like to know about it, but please post
| if not.
| I'd like to serialize the first people trying this, to avoid major mishap.
| So if the above doc can't keep you off and you'd like to try it right
| please send me an email to not this account, instead
| joergDOThohensohnATgmxDOTde. I'll then tell you either to wait for
somebody ahead of you, or where to
| find the stuff and to go ahead. Please email and post your results here
| then, to avoid blocking other people. Sorry for being so restrictive for
| time being. I'll post here again if I consider it "free for all".
