Song limit with or without Rockbox installed?

What's the song limit with this?

I've installed Rockbox on it. Would that get around the factory OS limitation of 15,000.

(The 15,000 figure, I got from Amazon specs here >

According to the manual, you can adjust the playlist size.

The default is 10,000 but can be topped out at 32,000.

But please note that you do have a physical size limit.

It depends on how large your hard drive is.

I only put in a 128GB IDE drive. Which shows up as 117GB. That's okay.

Thanks for letting me know 32k is the limit. Thanks.

EDIT Just seen this:

iPod photo (40/60): 40 GB, 60 GB | 10,000, 15,000 songs respectively.
