After some searching, downgrading has NOT been discussed a million times. I only found 2 posts that were relevent.
Reverting back is a two stage process. .28 still shows the menu entry and clicking it still shows the ad, so you have to go back to .26. I started by going to .28 and then going to .26, and it worked, and it didn’t brick my Fuze. I have a v1 Fuze so I can’t say if this will work with the v2.
For those less savvy than me you can get the old firmware at http://mp3support.sandisk.com/firmware/fuze/fuze01.02.28.zip for .28 and http://mp3support.sandisk.com/firmware/fuze/fuze01.02.26.zip for the .26 version and if they remove them I will upload my copies somewhere so that others can escape the advertising. You need only to PM me. It was a very simple and easy process, just extract and copy over like all the other updates, first the .28 and then the .26. Install one at a time, first the .28 and then the .26, DO NOT try to install both at the same time. Saying a prayer while they’re installing isn’t a bad idea either. Win7 bugged out when it came back up in MTP mode so keep in mind that you can force MSC mode by setting the key lock and holding the previous track button while plugging the cable in (a full moon in alignment with mars helps too). That trick will save you the trouble of switching to MSC after installing .28.
I wasn’t going to get all political about it, but, Sansa didn’t make a new main menu for the browse folder feature, so why is there a main menu entry for something that should obviously be under Music? It is nothing more than blatant advertising. Period. Advertising is anything that makes a product or service known to a wide audience, and has nothing to do with buying things even if that’s the eventual goal. They say potato, I say potato. If what I’ve said here starts some flames, please lock the thread as that is not my intent.
Hope I don’t run in to that ogg bug that .31 fixes! On the up-shot my SD slot seems to be reading now that I’ve reflashed .26, go figure.
