It's not about "changing Rockbox is not right". On the contrary, it's actually encouraged especially if it has actual benefits. But in return the change must be transparent for everyone else to see and verify. That has been the nature of an open source community.
You can't just claim to have changed something and not release your change. (Technically you can but that is going against the spirit of the community and illegal if you are profitting from the claim).
A very good example is Lurker's mod in DX90. The change is completely transparent and documented. Rockbox directly benefitted. By removing non-essential processes running in the background and setting the CPU to the maximum supported clock speed, it helps completely remove stuttering in Rockbox.
That is the reason I combined his mod with rockbox. Not just for show.
I assume you are fully aware of the very subjective nature of listening and how it's prone to personal bias if test are not done properly. Sadly, that's how things went down here when the change was vaguely described and a couple of users strongly convinced and already made an impression that a difference in sound, exist ignoring the facts even if they were told the change had no effect on Rockbox. Instead of making the effort to understand the reason why questions were asked about the change they just resorted to typical childish comments.
That is exactly what I'm trying to avoid. The main DX50 thread is already littered with too much misinformation and subjective bias. That it's very confusing and mostly misleading for a newbie to read.
