Title: won't load rockbox
Post by: aznxkidd4 on October 06, 2008, 12:26:36 AM
I had rockbox installed on my sansa e280, but after an update a few months ago, it stopped running rockbox and went straight to the sansa loader and software. Can someone tell me what's wrong with it?

Sansa e280 Version: 01.02.24A

Could the bootloader possibly have been replaced with the official Sansa bootloader again..?  Perhaps try reinstalling the bootloader again and see if that fixes it...

karashata stated the solution. This is a known issue, as pretty much stated in the Wiki; but it's not a problem that can be fixed by the Rockbox devs, so be prepared to reinstall the bootloader every time you update the OF.

It isn't really a known issue - if you replace the Rockbox bootloader with the original firmware, it will load the original firmware.  A known issue suggests unexpected behaviour, whereas this is clearly expected behaviour.

The H10 firmware is much the same way, if you replace the OF, the H10 bootloader will overwrite the Rockbox one.
