●Very easy to use Rockbox installer for the e250, e260, e270, and e280 Sansa media players (version 1's).
●Now gives the option of having either SanDisk, or Rockbox firmware as primary (boots first).
●Rockbox comes with Doom including the counter-strike/twilight add-on's, a number of great looking themes, and much more.
●If, after installing, you decide you don't like Rockbox, just run "uninstall.bat", which is located in the root folder of your Sansa.
Download Installer/Uninstaller Now:
●The updater now downloads and extracts the current build of Rockbox directly on your Sansa!
●Once you install the updater, just run "Update_Rockbox.bat" (in Windows) from your Sansa's root.

Don't forget to thank the programmers over at rockbox.org. Without their efforts, we would have no Rockbox.

Rockbox is neither created nor endorsed by SanDisk. Any "bricking" or malfunctioning of the device (while trying to install Rockbox) can be deemed irreplaceable. We are aware that users like to have options, and as this seems to be a popular alternative. So as a courtesy to our community members this has been stickied.
Any issues with this specific version of rockbox should be taken to http://lodist.com/showthread.php?t=1538 and discussed in through their forum channels. Any issues with Rockbox builds (THAT ARE OBTAINED ONLY THROUGH ROCKBOX.ORG) should be taken to www.rockbox.org and discussed in through their forum channels. Please don't expect SanDisk or the Admins/Mods of this forum to assist with anything Rockbox related.

Well, I think it is at least SanDisk's responsibility to supply Rockbox developers with information about the v2 hardware.
It was SanDisk who sold totally different hardware under identical names and with nearly indistinguishable packaging ...
As I see on http://daniel.haxx.se/sansa/v2.html, the Firmware File Format would be a nice start.

Should you use this installer to install Rockbox along with the modified bootloader, you are liable to not receive any support from Rockbox. We would encourage people to read the Rockbox manual and use the official installers - there is now a nice gui installer, that whilst still under development works quite nicely. And if course if there is a problem, it is supported.
