You may contact me off list, perhaps I/we can patch something together from
my Archos Junkyard (tm).

I woudn't hold my breath for this. The Gmini has the big handicap of having
this odd CalmRisc CPU, a 16 bit processor with a proprietary DSP alongside.
The brave folks managed to break in and get the Rockbox "housekeeping code"
running, but the really, really hard task is to get an mp3 decoder running
on the DSP part.
