Rockbox as an app is a possibility (basically a specialised simulator build) - something similar has already been done for a series of Motorola smartphones. A big hurdle with the Connect is it's lack of UMS/MSC support - getting files onto a Connect would either involve finding an exploit in the existing firmware (and/or associated libraries), or finding a way of uploading what we want via the recovery procedure. From looking at the root filesystem the assets (the 17Mb tar.gz) is GPG verified on the Connect when it is received - strings in the flash firmware mention PGP, so something similar may be done for the initrd image too.
