The "Manual Installation" section of the Installation chapter of the manual contains the following note:

"Note: If the contents of the .zip file are extracted correctly, you will have a directory called .rockbox, which contains all the files needed by Rockbox, in the main directory of your player's drive. If you receive a '-1' error when you start Rockbox, you have not extracted the contents of the .zip file to the proper location."

The "-1" error message has been replaced with the more descriptive message:

Can't load rockbox.ipod
File not found
Hold MENU+SELECT to reboot
then SLECT+PLAY for disk mode."

The manual needs to be updated to reflect the actual error message.
This task depends upon

This is only true for some targets, the iriver bootloaders still display the -1 error if they can't find rockbox.iriver.
