If you install rockbox, it will play music without any limitation,
whatever firmware you patched rockbox in.
Furthermore, with patching and installing one firmware, you are
completely uninstalling the previous version. So if you want to
install KR for the file formats that rockbox is not yet supporting, it
does not matter what you box was running before.
