You want to make sure that you use the most current cvs version of the rockbox_flash.rock though... it can change when new api features are added, etc.

I would keep that file in the main rocks folder. Since it only updates the rockbox section of the ROM, it isn't all that dangerous. The one you want to keep seperated is the initial program that flashes the ROM. That's the dangerous one.
