        Flashing one of the daily builds will not destroy your Archos
software. It will leave your Archos software installed in ROM and simply
overwrite the rockbox you currently have installed in ROM. You can still
press on+f1 to get to the Archos firmware. See
        For more info.

I have firmware flashed to RockBox 2.2 and everything works wonderfully. the
speed of booting and shut down is well worth the minimal effort. My question
is if I want to reflash with one of the daily builds will I lose the ability
to do the on+F1 to get into the Archos firmware. My sense of logic points me
towards the following; when I originally flashed the firmware it took the
Archos firmware and made it the back up firmware. If I reflash with a new
RockBox firmware, will it put my originally flashed RockBox firmware as the
backup firmware or will it keep the Archos firmware as the backup? I want to
try some of the daily builds but I don't want to lose the security blanket
of the Archos firmware as a backup.

Thanks for any help with this. sometimes I just get paranoid and don't do
anything to move forward. I very much appreciate all the tips and info I've
gotten here since I got my JBRv2. My daughter has an Ipod and it's really
elegant but I really like my JBR with RockBox installed.
