This is the correct sequence, an unfortunately I forgot to
document this in the wiki. Fixed. ;)

There is no rockbox.bin supplied, so you can't do that easily.

I changed that part, hopefully it is a bit clearer now.
However, please remember that rombox is still considered to be
an experimental version of rockbox. It shouldn't be tried as a
beginner's first exercise.
Especially the recording feature doesn't always work correctly
(as described under "About the recording bug"). Although I found
a possible solution, the fix is not yet contained in the
provided builds, since I'm still testing it to find if there
are no ill side effects.
