Wish I could hack my iRiver 1GB

I recently purchased a 1GB iRiver. It plays Ogg, mounts as USB mass storage, runs for many hours on one AA battery, and does not squish when I fall off my unicycle.
Even so, I very much wish I could hack the user interface myself. It boots slowly. It has beeps for some events but not others. It requires at least two button presses to get music, one to boot, then several seconds later another press of the same button to start playing.
I wish I could hack in instant boot or at least single button boot and play.
The iRiver microphone is quite good, I also wish I could plug it into my USB port and use it for headphones and microphone for VoIP.
