Lightbulb Fuze+ Mod Request

Hi. I, as you may have noticed conveniently by the above title, would like to request a firmware modification to be made to the Fuze+. The basic idea is to make things more convenient and cool-looking. First, alterring the lock image to the original due to the sleekness of the design. Second, making the unlock a side-slide to the right rather than a press of the power button because the current unlock function is a little too buggy for me (it can be a bit of a trick to fully press the power button for only enough time to unlock it). Third, alterring the appearance so creating different themes is possible. I am aware that images can be put in as a wallpaper, but it is always covered with a translucent colored filter, thus destroying the visual appeal of most possible wallpapers. Lastly, the ability to put games on the mp3 player would be convenient for times of extreme boredom (might just be worthwhile to wait for rockbox to come out with a Fuze+ port). Thank you very much! Please reply if you could assist on this project.

The only people who can change how the actual sandisk firmware works are the people at Sandisk who work on the Sandisk firmware. Usually the most you can change without the source code is the bitmaps that make up images in the firmware. Changing how things actually work is almost impossible without the code.

That said, there are people interested in completely replacing the sandisk firmware, so eventually that might be possible.
