Ryan, at present, Rockbox works on the Archos Jukebox 5000, 6000,
Studio, Recorder, FM Recorder, Recorder V2 and Ondio MP3 players. All of
these support the speech features. Only the Recorder and Ondio FM models
support recording, if that's a desired feature for you. Soon (as in
sometime this year, but probably not next week!) the iRiver H110, H120,
H140, H320, and H340 models will be supported. Rockbox boots on these
units right now, but is not fully functional.
The GMINI and AV units have different hardware (processors, etc.) that
are not compatible with Rockbox, at least in its current incarnation.
