I started reading around and found that my most annoying feature about the fuze+ was the sluggish menu response which seemed to popup after 1.29.03. So I downloaded 1.27.02 and attempted to downgrade the firmware.
In the past, Sansa players have always been able to be downgraded. Now, it seems this is no longer the case.
I followed all the manual upgrade instructions, and it looks as if the unit tries to start the downgrade, but stops after several seconds, reboots and stays at 1.32.00a.
So now it seems I’m stuck here. I formatted the player and reset to factory defaults, but regardless of the fact, the downgrade still won’t occur.
Is there anyway this unit can be downgraded or am I now stuck at 1.32.00A. I would like to think not, but that’s what it’s beggining to look like.
Perhaps some of the fuze+ gurus could give some suggestions. I’d really like to downgrade until the sluggish UI bug is fixed. I’ve never had this happen on any other firmware or device.
Any suggestion short of returning it to the store?
Thanks in advance.
