It simply requires you to replace a file on your \dap{} with the Rockbox bootloader. To be able booting the original firmware please make sure to rename the original file properly. If you ever wish to uninstall Rockbox you should keep a backup copy of the original file. \begin{itemize} \item Download the Rockbox bootloader. \fixme{Currently there isn't a prebuild bootloader available and you'll need to build it yourself. This is described in the wiki. Once a prebuild bootloader is available the link comes here. Have a look at \download{bootloader/}.} \item Starting at the root folder of your player browse into the folder \fname{GBSYSTEM} and from that into the subfolder \fname{FWIMG}. These folders are hidden. You can enter them by simply typing the name in Windows explorers location bar or changing the display settings. \item In that folder you'll find a file called \fname{FWIMG01.DAT}. Rename the file to \fname{FWIMG01.DAT.ORIG}. Make sure you spelled that name correctly as it is needed for booting the \playerman{} firmware. \item Now copy the file \fname{FWIMG01.DAT} you downloaded to that folder. Make sure the spelling is correct. \end{itemize}
