Title: bootloader don't load original firmware on e280
Post by: hacker_p on September 27, 2007, 04:32:03 PM
Hi,
I installed rockbox on my e280; it's very good!

The bootloader loads rockbox but doesn't load the orginal firmware. :(
It tried it but the screen is changing from white/black strips over magenta strips to an black screen.  :o

I've many times tried to remove and install the bootloader but for every connection to my PC I have to start the recovery mode and install the original firmware.

So I have n idea what to do.  ???

Plaese Help!!!   :'(

The latest bootloader has issues loading the original firmware, here's a forum thread on this:

I just got my Sansa yesterday and have had the same problem. The solution is to use an older version of Sansapatcher (0.2 instead of 0.3) which can be found

you just have to sign up for an anything but ipod account, to be allowed to download it.

Sansapatcher 0.2 is available from the official rockbox.org download servers:

We're currently working on the assumption that the patch hosted here:

... might solve this problem.

Which was the right thing? Using sansapatcher 0.2, or using the patch?

Bit stuck with my new Sansa e280. I installed Rockbox through rbutilqt and now when i boot into the OF i get the same problem as the original poster. How do i go about applying Sansapatcher 0.2?

Edit: Running Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn).
