Subject: Re: Is this true? WILL ROCKBOX WORK ON ANY ARCHOS?

Thanks for your response, Jean. This seller has more than one at
eBay, so evidently they get them and repair them to resell. Just was
curious if that soldering statement was true, that they are better
than the original!

Still would like to hear from anyone if I can get any Archos unit and
use the Rockbox OS on it???

Thanks very much for all help!
