Got my smart computer friend to help remove it, was very difficult mostly because the computer would never recognize it as a device or anything! so frustrating! In my experience i highly recommend against it. Its has pros but the cons far far far out weigh the pros. Sorry if everybody else on this thread disagrees with me. lol
Oh and iam so sorry if my terrible spelling made anyone on this thread unhappy.
What do you mean it has no usb compatibility?
What version did you install? It's moved on a bit and now gets recognised by the computer and is therefore much easier to install / uninstall. Also, it's now dual boot, so really easy to switch between rockbox and default firmware.
I don't get the noise you are talking about and if it wasn't for rockbox I would've sold the 801 ages ago, it's an absolute pleasure to use
