You can modify your firmware using the s1res tool.
<div style='float: right; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 5px; border: 1px dotted #d5d6d7; clear: both; padding: 5px;'>
<script language='JavaScript' type='text/javascript' src=''></script>
<script language='JavaScript' type='text/javascript'>
if (!document.phpAds_used) document.phpAds_used = ',';
phpAds_random = new String (Math.random()); phpAds_random = phpAds_random.substring(2,11);

document.write ("<" + "script language='JavaScript' type='text/javascript' src='");
document.write ("" + phpAds_random);
document.write ("&amp;what=zone:13");
document.write ("&amp;exclude=" + document.phpAds_used);
if (document.referrer)
document.write ("&amp;referer=" + escape(document.referrer));

<span style="text-decoration:underline">Requirements beforehand:</span>

* Make sure you have extracted the firmware using the <span style="font-weight:bold">s1fwx</span> tool as you will need the .bin file so you can modify it with the s1res tool. Read the Knowledge Base here - How to: extract firmware of your player using the S1fwx tool.

* Make sure you have downloaded the <span style="font-weight:bold">s1res</span> tool already. Download it from here. You will need it to open the .bin file and modify your firmware with it.

1. Run the <span style="font-weight:bold">s1res.exe</span>.

10. You can then modify the Start sequences under the [LOGO.RES] section and follow the same steps as above.

11. To modify the images used within your player, you can do this by importing images into the [UI30.RES] -> "<span style="font-weight:bold">icon</span>" section.

12. To modify the <span style="font-weight:bold">TEXT</span> used in your player, select [UI30.RES] -> "<span style="font-weight:bold">mstring</span>".


(1) Select the text string you want to change

(3) In the "Edit" box on the bottom, change the text to what you want it to be.

(8 characters), you can change it to "Del All" (7 characters), but you <span style="text-decoration:underline">can't</span> change it to say "Delete All" (10 characters).
