Ok so I got myself in a bit of a problem.
I had rockbox installed on my device for 6 months, and all of a sudden my tracks began skipping 20 seconds into the song. I wanted to check to see if it was rockbox causing the problem, so I tried to boot into the sansa firmware. No luck - the player just hung up and I had to reset. I tried to uninstall rockbox, but to get rid of the rockbox bootloader, one must perform a sansa firmware update.
Problem is, the sansa updater won’t recognize my player. And when I copy the clppa.bin file into the player’s root directory, the player doesn’t update. I just boot back into rockbox. And as said before, I’m unable to boot into the sansa firmware for some reason that the guys over at the rockbox forum can’t help me out with.
I’ve tried reformatting the disk by creating a new partition to no luck. I’m worried that I deleted some essential files in the root directory - there were a series of empty folders (ie ##MUSIC##) and some .sys files that were present that got wiped out.
Anyone have any tips or advice? The player is essentiall unusable right now.
