clipsport board 502-01.01

Can anyone walk me through reseting the board.  I want to erase the memory so I can reflash it.

Define "resetting the board".

 

If you want to erase all "user-added content" in one fell swoop you can format the player. But this will not erase the firmware, which is tucked safely away in the player's memory to prevent accidental erase and therefore 'bricking' the player. Formatting will only erase any files you have added to it and reset your personal settings.

I'm looking to erase the firmware as well and start over.  I have the unit apart so I can access the board, is there a reset or a junction that I need to jump to clear the firmware and start over?

Ther is no way to erase the firmware. Just manually update or re-apply the latest firmware; it will overwrite what is there.

I had found this site:  http://www.wikihow.com/Unlock-a-Federal-Prison-Sansa-MP3-Player

 

however the current 502-01.01 board looks different and I am unable to determine where the spot is on the 502-01.01 board to do exactly what you were looking to do. I've done it to an older model described on that page, and it does work.
