That's the software for a V2 recorder, not for an FM. The FM has 1.30j. It
shouldn't make much difference, just the tuner disabled, but you never know
unless tried.

Anyway, if you just flashed a wrong .ucl you're safe, no matter which file
you used. Hold F1 while powering on should bring your box back to life with
the correct Archos software.

I don't understand what you were trying. Did you use F1-start?

General recipe after flashing wrong ucl:
- Power off the box
- Plug USB to your running PC
- Hold F1 while powering up the box, brings you into Archos USB screen
- copy a consistent rockbox build to the box, including .ajz, .ucl, .rock's
- unmount USB, unplug USB -> the rockbox you've just copied should start
- flash the better .ucl

As long as your box runs some software, you're not screwed.
