As explained above, we cannot distribute the bootloader directly, and thus need to patch a compatible version of the MPIO firmware, which can be downloaded as described above. \begin{enumerate} \item Download official Rockbox bootloader for MPIO \playertype{} from \opt{mpiohd200}{ \url {http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/mpio/hd200}}% \opt{mpiohd300}{ \url {http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/mpio/hd300}} and save it to your desktop. The archive contains three files: bootloader.mpio, bootloader.map and rockbox-info.txt. The first file is actual bootloader, two others can be used for debugging and are irrelevant for end user. \item Download mkmpioboot utility from \url{http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/mpio/mkmpioboot} \item Process previously downloaded official firmware to include rockbox bootloader. Open terminal window and type the following command: \begin{code}[firstline=\opt{mpiohd200}{1}\opt{mpiohd300}{2}, lastline=\opt{mpiohd200}{1}\opt{mpiohd300}{2}] mkmpioboot HD200_UPG.SYS bootloader.mpio HD200_UPG.rb mkmpioboot HD300_UPG.SYS bootloader.mpio HD300_UPG.rb \end{code} \item Copy \opt{mpiohd200}{\fname{HD200\_UPG.rb}}% \opt{mpiohd300}{\fname{HD300\_UPG.rb}} to the SYSTEM folder of your \dap{} and rename back to \opt{mpiohd200}{\fname{HD200\_UPG.SYS}}\opt{mpiohd300}{\fname{HD300\_UPG.SYS}} \item Safe eject your \dap{} \item Connect Wall charger and turn on the device. This should trigger firmware upgrade process which will install rockbox bootloader to the flash memory of the player. \end{enumerate}
