Yes, I can verify that this runs smoothly. It took me half an hour to
filter through the old information on the Wiki and in the docs but as
soon as I figured it out, it went flawlessly.

Here is the procedure I used.

Get the 2.5 release and unzip to the Recorder.

Get and unzip it in the root of the recorder.

ROLO or F1-boot to a RAM image of rockbox.

Go to .rockbox/rocks and play firmware_flash.rock

Let it execute.

Go to .rockbox and play rombox.ucl.

Let it execute.


Delete the .bins in the root and the .ucl's if desired. Keep the
executable (ajbrec.ajz) in the root for emergency disc boots.

I have to say guys that this is one slick setup.  The more I use my
Recorder the more I love it.  It gets 6-8 hours' use every day.  The
execute-in-ROM version is excellent.
Thanks again,
