I just wonder how the russian guy got it to work as the hardware isnt thexsame and he didn't have the source code.
I was naively thinking maybe a hex editor changing some device name or model number might do the trick when I first saw the AK120 1.00 firmware but seems there are more to that and the russians FTW!
I think my AK100 resell value just rebounded significantly :D while at the same time my AK120 feels even more expensive tho we all knew it'd be a matter of time the software features will be "synchonised", not unlike the android ROMs
Hopefully this will send a strong signal to AK/iriver that they'd actually gain more customers/market if they had opened up more instead of getting totally embarrassed.
