+ Installing the bootloader is the trickiest part of the installation.
+ We cannot distribute the bootloader directly, and thus need to patch a compatible
+ version of the xDuoo firmware.
+\item Download the Rockbox bootloader from
+ \url{}
+\item Get a copy of the original \playertype{} v1.1 firmware from
+ \url{} and extract the .rar file to obtain the
+ update image (called \fname{}).
+\item Compile bspatch in rbutil/bspatch/ (run make in the dir).
+\item Run
+ ../rbutil/bspatch/bspatch X3-v11.bsdiff
+\item Put \fname{} in the root of the SD card and rename it to \fname{}.
+\item Disconnect the player from USB and let the original firmware boot.
+\item Go into the 'Setting' menu, and select 'Upgrade'. The player will reboot into Rockbox
+ upon completion.
