Today shuffle2 has successfully ported the original PSGroove payload to Rockbox, an open-source replacement firmware for MP3 players, and OGroteKoning shared a simple guide for those interested followed by an updated guide.
In addition, id10terror shared PSGroove ported to Rockbox for Sansa e200, c200v1 Series and others along with a guide (below) and DanyL has released a few RockBox PSGroove Installers available below followed by Rockbox PSGroove Payload Hermes V4 Hex Codes.
To quote: "I built a small program that allows easy installation of PSGroove on iPod devices. It's still in beta and it lacks of automatic installation of iPL. But it works pretty well." In v1.0b2: "Added support for sansa E200v1, E200R, C200v1 (including bootloader installation). Fixed some bugs."

To quote from PSGroove: Of the rockbox compatible MP3 players, shuffle2 has tested this on a 5th generation ipod video.
He states it will work on all PP502x based targets. Currently it is using the original psgroove payload, without any extra features.
However, he has plans to integrate some of the better psgroove payload revisions.
When asked which other devices were compatible, he stated: "theoretically anything that rockbox supports (but people with the devices would need to do some simple patches first)"
