So I sold my gen6 ipod nano for a clip+. The clip+ just came in the mail today and I have to say it sounds like crap compared to the old ipod nano. I’m hoping rockbox can fix this. I figured it couldnt be any harder installing this than any of the apple products BUT BOY WAS I WRONG.
I’ve spent the last 3 hours trying to figure out how to get rockbox onto my clip+ and I’m still on the 1st step. Getting ready to send this POS back. I’ve already searched youtube, i tried following the rockbox site, searched head-fi and this forum.
No information listed at any of these sources has helped.
So I got the rockbox program downloaded. I open it and I have two options.
Either one I click on I get this message
“Bootloader installation requires you to provide a copy of the original Sandisk firmware (bin file). This firmware file will be patched and then installed to your player along with the rockbox bootloader. You need to download this file yourself due to legal reasons. Please browse the sansa forums or refer to the manual and the SansaAMS wiki page on how to obtain this file. Press OK to continue and browse your computer for the firmware file.”
I tried getthing this file from multiple sources… ERROR, ERROR, ERROR, ERROR, ERROR, ERROR every time.
I’m using firmware 01.02.16
I cannot believe how difficult the “auto” install is… what is the point of it being “auto” if I have to manuall find files?
Anyway, I only have a few days to return so if I can’t figure this out by Wed I’m returning this POS for another apple product.
Thanks for any help.
