Lightbulb Has anyone modified the firmware?

has anyone been able to dig around the filesystem yet?
what is the best way to modify the os? i would assume a hex editor is the best bet

what i am looking to do is change the default "wallpaper" with an image of my own choice (the solid colors are cool for a day, then boaring to look at)
i would also like to find a way to replace the icons

also, has anyone gotten into the firmware file? can you make major changes in there?

Yeah I was wondering the same thing: is the color changer a multiple theme bootloader in itself?

I really wanna theme this thing.

ok, i extracted the firmware and have it open in Hex Workshop (this looks like it may take awhile)
i am starting to find a few things that may come in handy in the future...

The firmware is still new. There is a very little info. Rockbox is trying to get info too. Here is the Rockbox thread: http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php?topic=14064.0

thank you for that link, ill have to converse with the guys over at rockbox to see how far they are on this task

i have only completed minor hex editing in the past (RAZR phone) hopefully this will be just as simple to do

if others want to get their hands dirty, follow this link ---> http://daniel.haxx.se/sansa/v2.html

There was no v2 Fuze when this thread was made, and the original poster hasn't been seen in over a year.
