Hmm - to me the post on the forum you mention reads less
Quote:"....IV. Someone posted links to a software which
decodes and re-encodes the original iHP firmware at iRiver's
user forums (12, 13). However, I have been unable to
disassemble the decoded firmware properly, and it seems that
there are (one or more) checksums in the firmware file which
haven't been discovered yet.
Anyhow, at offset 0x200 I have found an 'ESTFBINR' header
(which doesn't include the entry point).
Unlike the Apple iPod, I think it is possible to fry an iHP
player by flashing a bad firmware. There doesn't seem to be
a generic bootstrap loader which reflashes the firmware from
the HDD if something goes wrong...."
