Does anybody know of a set of instructions for Teardown on the Connect? I droped it and it still works but the issue now is that the volume buttons have come out of position, I need to open it up to get them back in place.

here is a disassembled post on ABI

Found that and it works. Now for the Million Dolar Question, Where can I get a new battery. I got a second one from a Friend at $10. It needs a new battery, switiching them out should be no problem.

Also it needs a Firmware update (It was never done) is that still around some where?

firmware update should be automatic over wifi when you get it up and running or you could use the recovery tool it will install the latest firmware. i would try ebay for one with a broken screen or otherwise dead for the battery. 

Im a little out of the loop on the connect, Mine has always worked fine and is up to date but I dont have any of the recovery utilitys. Where do I get that? And Can you post the name (You know the numbers) for the latest firmware? I would compare but Mine is not with me.

sansa connect recovery tool

not sure of the version numbers i sold my connect a long time ago

i just did a recovery yesterday…
