Well, my clip+ decided to die on my after going on a run, and when i got home, i took the memory card and IEMs out, and left it to sit in rice for two days, in case moisture was what caused it to hang. Then, i did a hard reset, by holding the Vol up button and power together for twenty seconds, waiting for another twenty, and then the power button again. Think i read it somewhere on this forum while waiting for it to dry.
So, the clip+ turns on, and boots into rockbox. However, the memory card I had inside during the run was corrupted, so i decided to reformat the card, and the player too just for the heck of it. Reformatted to FAT, all settings default, and quick reformat off, using the default win 7 reformatter. Wrong decision.
After the reformat, it connected to my PC just fine, but was not recongised as SANSA CLIPP, but some generic flash drive. First I tried to get the OF working, by putting the sclppa.bin from the thread at the top of this forum into the root, but when i unplugged it, it still shows the rockbox logo and tells me to plug it back in, as there are no rockbox files. I switched it off, and booted into the OF, using left + power. Sansa logo, flower, black screen, logo, and then stuck on flower for ten mins, when i rebooted it using home+power.
Then, I tried to get rockbox going. Connected to PC, ran the utility, and everything was normal, in that nothing was different from the other times i rockboxed this clip+. Played around in rockbox to test if it was stable, then tried reinstalling OF. Same results. That’s when I decided to post on the forum for help.
Thanks for taking the time to read this long ass post, and any suggestions on what to do would be very welcome
