Re: Rockbox & V2's

I know, I never tried to use the Updater to revert back to any firmware or install any other firmware after it had updated the player to 02.03.33. I always tried the manual method but like the other users it would only detect 02.03.31 and 02.03.33.

 

Something must have changed in the recent firmware.

It's a sinister, diabolical plot by SanDisk to prevent people from reverting back to a firmware that doesn't incorprate the SlotRadio icon in the main menu.

 

 

Ssshhh . . . little to they know that somone has discovered a way around that! Smiley Wink

SlotRadio was on the menu long before 02.2.26 even.

And it doesn't show up if you select region "Rest of World" so I doubt there's any connection.

Though you could try choosing a different region and see if that affects upgrading.

 

Which suggests another idea - what happens if you reset the device and then try to flash? I haven't done it for a long time now but I seem to recall that holding the power slider up for 20 seconds or so will reset the device.

Re: Rockbox & V2's

Yeah, then your lucky, my unit doesnt accept that old or modified firmwares. It just ignores them and doesnt start the flash process.

Re: Rockbox & V2's

ssorgatem - you are correct and thank you for correcting my error..  it is indeed the left (|<<) button that is held down at bootup, to boot into the original Sansa firmware.

Re: Rockbox & V2's

man, i'm still trying to figure this out, but i WAS able to revert to 2.17 from 2.3 (or whatever it was).

 

I went here: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=37449

 

at the end of the first post, the dude gives a link to download the zip file of v2 OF.  I extracted the fuzpa file over to the fuze v2, and voila!  it's now 2.17.

Re: Rockbox & V2's

Tried what was listed on page 10 with a new Fuze, and now it's dead. It originally booted into rockbox and i could browse through the file menu. I looked away and when I looked back the display was black and the blue ring was out. If I plug headphones in and out, though, there is a bit of static as if it is still powered on. I have tried holding the power switch for 30 seconds but can't get it to reset. Is there any other way to reset, or to physically cut power without taking the unit apart?

Waiting for the battery to run down, or holding power off for much longer can work.
