Re: Can i downgrade my firmware?...

Yes you can!  You need to do it manually by dropping the bin. file you extrackded to the root directory. But I agree with the last poster. Why would you like the last version better? IMO Sandisk did a great job with the latest firmware upgrade!  Very close to bug free..  In fact for what I use my Fuze for I have not see a bug in the latest firmware v01.01.22a! George

Re: Can i downgrade my firmware?...

lukev hit the nail on the head. What exactly dont you like about the current FirmWire?  Is it a function issue?

[ Edited ]

Info was from the first page of the Firmware update page!!  Here you go!!  ONLY USE the Firmware of your choice.. 

All Regions - Click here to download

 

All languages are now in one firmware version. After firmware update you will need to select your Language and Region preference.

 

• Ensure your battery is > 50% full.
• Extract the .zip file into a folder on your computer.
• Once extracted, drag the file to the root directory of your Sansa Fuze.
• Disconnect the Sansa Fuze and let it begin the firmware update.
• Once it finally finishes doing its update, it will turn itself off.
• Turn the Fuze on Select your language and region preference
• Once its back to the main menu, head to "Settings" > "System Settings" > "Info", and verify the "Version" is now 02.01.17"x

Explore  " my computer" click on the Fuze then click on the internal memory..  Here you will see a few folders.. Drop the extracted firmware of your choice in here but not in any of the folders!!  Let it load.  When done unplug fuze and let it update, it will turn itself off when done..  Tune it back on then chose you region..  That's it..  George
