If you get someone's modified HEX file, or if you re-modify a new one from
iRiver, be sure to flash the firmware once again with the good HEX file.
But to get it back to the original iRiver firmware, I think you will have to
copy the original HEX file, which can be linked to from the RockBox site,
and once you copy that onto your root, then do the flash firmware step
again, after booting to the iRiver firmware by holding down the record
button and the on button.
That is if the flashing step is the same as it is in the 100 series.

Sorry to post this again, but I did not see it on the list.
I am hoping someone can please help.
I installed Rockbox onto an iRiver H340 for someone today, together with the
English Audrey voice to speak menu items, folder and file names. I used the
1.28 European firmware, and although I did not install the latest build of
Rockbox, it is the build I have been using successfully without any problems
for more than two weeks, so I know it works fine.
Everything was performing well. The person then used it for a little while,
and unfortunately that's when the problems started (smile).
The player/Rockbox exhibits the following behaviour. I have brought the
iRiver home with me so I can get it working again.
In summary, Rockbox does speak menus correctly, however items do not appear
to get saved. So for example, if I activate the reading of folder and file
names, this does not get saved. If I change the value in base or trebble,
it does not get saved.
More crucially, there is no audio playback. I can navigate folders and the
names are spelled as this function was activated prior to the problem
occurring, but I cannot play a file. If I boot up to the iRiver firmware
however, which I can do, I can play the files as usual.
I did delete the rockbox.iriver file and the .rockbox folder, then replaced
them, but that did not seem to resolve the problem. In fact, the settings
which had previously been stored on the player were still in place.
My question is how can I restore Rockbox back to the original settings as
though it had not been installed before please? Where do settings changed
in the menus get written to? If I update the firmware back to the original
patched 1.28 version, will that help?
