Rockbox does not help with the use of iTunes, and in no way helps with
regular audiobook use, unfortunately. Rockbox cannot playback the protected
format, so if you were to try to use Audible format audiobooks on a
Rockbox'd player it would be necessary to convert them to a compatible
format first, unfortunately. This isn't something that can be resolved, as
it's highly unlikely that Audible will ever accept having their encryption
in an open-source program.
