+ HACKING ROCKBOX
+
+Terminology
+
+ The hardware is mainly separated in two different versions. The "Player" is
+ the Archos Jukebox Player 6000 and Archos Studio 20, while the "Recorder" is
+ the Archos Recorder 20. The "Player" has a character-based LCD screen with 2
+ lines of 11 letters and a big round thing on the keypad (featuring 6
+ different keys), while the "Recorder" has a graphical LCD and has all its 10
+ keys separate.
+
+1. Get Sources
+
+ The the very latest sources off the CVS server. Get the 'firmware' dir and
+ the 'uisimulator' dir on the same dir level, to make it easier to build
+ things (some of the files assume this hierarchy).
+
+ All CVS details can be found here: http://bjorn.haxx.se/rockbox/cvs.html
+
+2. Build Uisimulator
+
+ For the X11 simulator, change directory to uisimulator/x11.
+
+ Edit the "DISPLAY" variable in the Makefile to match the target LCD you want
+ to build the simulator for.
+
+ Run 'make'.
+
+3. Run Uisimulator
+
+ To create a simulated disk drive for the simulator to see, create a
+ subdirectory named 'archos' and populate it with a bunch of test
+ files/directories.
+
+ Run 'rockboxui'.
+
+4. Target Keypad Equivalents
+
+ The keyboard's numerical keypad is used to simulate the Archos keypads:
+
+ Keyboard Generic Archos
+ -------- --------------
+ + ON
+ 8 UP
+ 2 DOWN
+ 4 LEFT
+ 6 RIGHT
+
+ Keyboard Recorder-only
+ -------- --------------
+ Enter OFF
+ 5 PLAY
+ / F1
+ * F2
+ - F3
+
+ Keyboard Player-only
+ -------- --------------
+ [fill in] MENU
+ [fill in] PLAY
+ [fill in] STOP
