I've just bought a new Sansa Clip+ which has come with the new version of 01.02.17 Firmware. I Rockboxed it with latest available version on this forum (01.02.16). Rockbox wasn't for me and I uninstalled it. As the result my current version is 01.02.16 and I am just wondering how I can upgrade it again (Sansa auto-update does not have any update for 01.02.16).

There is no 01.02.17 firmware available. The update is 01.02.18

This happened before (not necessarily on this particular model) where new players started coming out with a slightly updated firmware version that was not posted anyway for download. So Sandisk released basically the same firmware update but with a different number to differeniate the two.
I'm assuming the recent, relatively minor firmware update named 01.02.18 is virtually the same as what has been comng out on the latest production run of players, 01.02.17.
I'll bet this kind of stuff confuses & frustrates the bejesus out of the developers over at Rockbox though.
For now anyway, I'd recommend using the 01.02.16 f/w version for any Rockbox installation. Hopefully theyr'e caught up on this one.

I assume you just updated your firmware--this can change some settings.
First, under System Settings, set your USB mode to what you had before--either MSC mode or MTP. Your computer now will see your files.
Second, do you have a Loudness setting under your Settings? If so, set it to high. If not, the software is limiting the volume--this can happen if you choose the EU as your region with the new firmware. Reapply the latest firmware and choose the U.S. or Rest of World as your region (or Reset under Settings and do the same).

This seems strange. This is the first I have heard of the 01.02.17 firmware. Most people thought that Sandisk stopped making the Clip+ more than a year ago when the Clip Zip came out, however the appearance of players packaged with this new firmware seems to imply that the Clip+ was still being made relatively recently, and might even still be made now?

If you mean "new old stock," I find that unlikely for a year, especially given Amazon's voume of sales.

The original Clip was being sold for well over a year after the Clip+ came out. We didn't see clip players suddenly appearing with a new firmware installed on them a year after the Clip+ came out.
