Section 2.2.1 of the manual is an introduction to the separate components of Rockbox. The explanations of the Rockbox bootloader and the Rockbox firmware are inaccurate for some SWCODEC targets. On iPods and the H10 and maybe some others, there are really three components. There's a bootloader which is stored in flash and which we never touch. Then, there's the firmware which is stored on the disk (in a hidden partition on the iPod, in the System/H10.mi4 file on the H10). When you install Rockbox, you replace this firmware with the Rockbox bootloader. Finally, there's the rockbox.h10/rockbox.ipod and .rockbox directory.
This task depends upon
