They haven't. None of the core Rockbox developers have been offered any
docs by Archos. The "dialog" with archos was held by a third person
(Scott at hotmp3gear.com). As far as I know, there was a
misunderstanding of our standpoint regarding the documentation (they
thought that we demanded their source code and documentation to be
published) and the discussion ended there, without us knowing.
Yes, Björn is in contact with Archos again, but I don't know more than that.

Well, I don't own one, and won't buy one unless it is hackable.
