Rockbox Open Source Digital Audio Firmware
Rockbox is an open source, GPL firmware replacement for many digital audio
players. From the Archos Jukebox 6000 to iPods, from the iriver H100 to
the SanDisk Sansa, Rockbox runs on a wide variety of players, and adds tons
of new features and functions that the stock firmwares have never thought
Among many of Rockbox's features are: playback for additional codecs like
Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, Muspack, Monkey's Audio, various chiptune formats (like
SID, NSF, and more), MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 video playback, lots of games, and
Written from scratch in C (with bits of assembler for speed-specific
functions), Rockbox is the combined effort of many talented hardware
hackers and coders. Ports can be started by any interested party with the
hardware and the talent!
