  Installing the bootloader is the trickiest part of the installation.
  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}
