Hi,everyone!  ;D

The Rockbox (v1.2.13) >Uninstallation>Remove the bootloader keeps showing


--- Quote ---Rockbox Utility can not uninstall the bootloader on this target. Try a normal firmware update to remove the bootloader.
--- End quote ---

What I did was.
 - Format fuze+
 - Download the firmware
 - Extract .sb file into fuze+ root directory
 - Restart

Then it shows

--- Quote ---Boot version: 1.0
arg=CAFEBABE addr=40000000
Loading firmware
File not found

--- End quote ---

Please help..

saratoga:
You have to actually boot into the Sandisk firmware, rockbox won't know what to do with the sandisk firmware update file.

c84574:
How can I boot into the Sandisk firmware? Is this the hold the volume button and the power button?

EDIT1:
I manage to boot into fuze+ (by holding volume and power button) but the problem is, it's not updating the original firmware.

EDIT2:
I finally get it to work!

What I did.. (2nd time)
 - turn off fuze+
 - hold the volume down button, plug into computer (force MSC mode)
 - Download the firmware
 - Extract .sb file into fuze+ root directory
 - turn off fuze+
 - "Loading firmware File not found" shows up
 - press volume down button (to boot sansa firmware)
 - wait for the update to finish

Thanks to saratoga for the help! Greatly appreciate it!  :'(
