I took option (3) and I am still getting the same issue. Basically, the background changes, but instead of the custom WPS, I get a display similar to:
Batt Vol Mode Time
9/10. Code Monkey
Thing A Week III (2006)
VU Meter Bars
I had BoeselGlass working under rockbox-20070326, but since upgrading, I haven't been able to get the WPS' to work since upgrading. I have tried using the standard Rockbox daily build for 20070602, angryman_H10's build (which has the album art patch), and 007quick's build as suggested above. None of them seem to have an effect on the WPS display.
My process to upgrade:
1. Back up old .rockbox and System/H10_20GC.mi4; remove same
2. Unzip Rockbox firmware file to H10 root, Rockbox bootloader to System.
3. Unzip Rockbox fonts to H10 root.
4. Unzip custom themes to H10/.rockbox.
5. Set up settings and select themes.
