Having had (and loved) the RockBox firmware on my, much earlier, Archos MP3 player, I decided to give it a shot on my Fuze. I was told that I had the V2 version, and I excitedly went throught the process of feeding the RockBox firmware to my little Sansa Fuze friend. However, I found that I didn’t care for it, and attempted to uninstall it. But that was to no avail. Formatting the unit will allow operation of it, but I’d have to reload my songs, and keep the unit on. As long as it was on, there would be no problem. But as soon as the Fuze was shut down - and powered back on, the RockBox screen would reappear, with notification of “File Not Found”. I think I had also read that pushing & holding the power button in the ‘UP’ position - until the player came on, and shut back down - would cure most player ills. But nothing seems to help me in the persent situation.
Have I damaged my player? Does the RockBox firmware permanently embed itself upon installation? I sure hope not, because I cannot afford to get another one at this time. I also hope that someone can give me a blueprint as to how I can finally divorce my player from this condition.
