Subject: Misflashed Archos Jukebox Recorder FM
From: Christian A. Wojek (
Date: 2003-12-21

Hi everybody,

I've made a mistake when flashing my Archos Jukebox Recoder's bootloader. I
took the wrong package and flashed the Recoder Firmware instead the FM
Recorder Bootloader.
Since I could start the original Recorder software, I disassembled the device,
copied ajbrec.ajz to the root folder and hoped to have the appropriate
rockbox software started by the original Archos Firmware (1.28). But this
approach has not been successful; the archos software now hangs two seconds
after starting it.
The Rockbox software still can be started, but none of the buttons reacts (USB
neither), but the software seems to be running properly.
Is there anything I can do? I've read something about a UART modification to
repair scrambled roms. Can you give me more information on that?
Thank you for your help!
