Subject: unable to get latest version of rockbox to work on old V1

unable to get latest version of rockbox to work on old V1

Hi. I am unable to get the latest version of rockbox -- just released
--to work on an old ARchos v1 recorder. I am trying to do this using
speech, so its a bit more complex. My current version is an old one
from the version 2 series, and it works. I unzipped the zip file and into the root of the
player. Before I did this I renamed the boot file and the .rockbox
directory, so I could go back in case of trouble. Well, it boots into
something, but none of the sequences mentioned in the FAQ make it talk.
It may not be booted into the correct firmware at all, I infer this
because when I shut it down, it does not save any files. I know it
boots into something because if I fool around with the browser I can
play an mp3 file. So, either the voice file is not correct, the key
sequences are not correct, or its booting into the original firmware or
something weird is going on here.

Any assistance with this would be appreciated.

How do
you spend it?
