1. Because DRM requires an integrated solution which Rockbox cannot deliver.2. Yes, it is possible to roll back. The installer will modify the stock firmware. You can follow the Sandisk procedure for firmware upgrades to get back to stock. In fact, you can dual boot (which is necessary for the Fuze in order to transfer files - only possible with OF).For me the 2 biggest benefits are that I can play so many more formats and take advantage of gapless playback.
It says on the manual that "It is possible that installation of the bootloader may lead to you permanently losing the ability to playback files with DRM". If it is just something Rockbox cannot deliver, Doesn't it mean that if I'll roll-back to the original firmware it should be OK?
And last thing - I need to encode the files with gapless support if I want to use this feature right?
Hey Guys! ...there is a good chance I will not be able to use files with DRM after the update. I dont have any DRM files at the moment but I was wondering why is that and if I should be worried about that?
Only posible with OF? can you please explain what OF stands for?

Any music you download from iTunes or Zune is now DRM-free. The other major online sources I know of (like Amazon) are also DRM-free. This should be a non-issue now.
Could you be more specific. I have found little data on rockbox.org that address this specifically.
