Default Rockbox on V2 Fuze?

Why is there no Rockbox available for V2 Fuze, but there is for firmware version 1 (V1)? I guess I couldn't install a V1 firmware update on my V2 8gb Fuze?? And is a V2 Rockbox something that will be available sometime in the near future?
Thanks

The V2 came out like a year later than the V1. The different firmwares cannot be switched, because there are internal hardware differences. And since even the RB for the V1 is not quite finished(although it appears to be pretty close) it stands to reason that a version for the V2 will be a ways off.

With the newest firmware, the Fuze works quite well, except for the crappy custom EQ(as long as you don't care about video). So if you are intrigued by the Rockbox scene, you'll have to wait....or buy a refurb
