Before you try rombox, you need to install a daily build.
Go to http://rockbox.haxx.se/daily.shtml and download the newest
version for your jukebox, then you can download rombox and instal it.
You were getting the error "incompatible version" because the plugin
API changed, making all the old plugin no longer work, and needed them
updated. (the daily build contains the latest plugins with it.)
