Subject: what does "end of life" for ROMBOX mean in practice?

what does "end of life" for ROMBOX mean in practice?

From: George Michaelson <>

I have an Archos Recorder V1. I'm on some post 2.5 CVS version. they
come with .ucl, which I can click on, which claim to be burned into ROM.

I have rombox. at least I think I do. I may have bootbox. who can tell?
how do they tell? What difference does it make?

ROMBOX was the one which ran as readonly code from ROM, right?

So I read from the devcon that Rombox can't go on, image sizes exceed
limits. In practice, what does this mean?

* can I cut my own stripped down build which would/might fit?
        * walk back to older GCC
        * remove functionality

* if I want to keep up with current/head, how do I make that work
        * do I have to un-install rombox? if so, how?

explanation sought by confused/scared user...
