Why not use the latest daily build? There have already been quite some
changes since 2.4. Daily builds are hardly less stable than full version
numbers (I have never ever had problems with them), and if they are you
can always go back to an older one or upgrade to a newer one.
Oh, and if you'd have followed the discussion or looked at the website,
you'd know that rockbox supports the iRiver H1x0 series now too, which are
not too expensive second hand (eur 150 - eur 200) and a lot better than
archoses. On these units you currently _have_ to install a daily build
since they were not supported when 2.4 came out. They don't support the
Voice UI yet, if that's very important to you.
