Ahh, yes. I kind assumed the .ipod contained everything. So if I
extract the whole zip into a subdirectory will the new firmware pick
up all the additional codec files from there?

I assume that these library files are hard-coded to the firmware
otherwise the new firmware would have picked up the existing codecs
from the working installed copy?

Basically I'm looking for the easiest way to test new firmwares
without potentially killing my working install.
