Multimedia, AV Rockbox is a replacement firmware for various audio players, that opens up new features and fixes devices shortcomings. We don't think of these devices as personal computers, but they are; and Rockbox is an alternative operating system. This review focuses on Rockbox as a replacement "OS" for the iRiver player.

I had rockbox on my ipod nano. It was pretty slick, looking very good with some third party skins. The controls were a bit annoying tho. It would skip on certain high bitrate MP3. The battery lasted about half the time it did with the original firmware.

Still, once I installed it, I never went back. You can also have Doom on rockbox, just like on ipodlinux. 1337!
