How do I install Rockbox on the SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip?


I am new to the SanDisk Forums!

I have the SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip player and the version is V01.01.18A. How do I install Rockbox on it? Thank you,

Set the USB mode on the player to MSC(settings, system settings, >MSC). Connect the player to the pc.

Go to, and download the manual for the Clip Zip. Look at the themes for the Clip Zip, and decide which you want to use.

On the Rockbox home page,  click on release, and  download  and follow the instructions for automatic install of Rockbox 3.13 When it asks for mountpoint, you need to select which drive letter the pc has assigned to the player.

Thank you so much!!! :slight_smile:

I tried to rockbox yesterday and using the rockbox utility I left the bootloader checked but it required to download some kind of BIN file and I had no clue so I unchecked it and just did the install. Do I do this right? Or no?
