The important file is "internal_rom_2000000-203FFFF.bin", the dump of your
unaltered flash.

The flash FAQ covers most of it, but some remarks:
There's several less radical possibilities than a full "flashback":
- rolo the Archos software
- use F1-start with no .ajz, brings you into Archos
- program Archos as the second software, too (no need to hold F1 then):

If you still want to bring the box back into the original state, copy and
rename your "internal_rom_2000000-203FFFF.bin" backup (make sure it's your
original, not the one from your friends' FM) to "firmware_rec.bin" in the root
dir of the box. Run the "firmware_flash.rock" plugin.
