Title: Rebooting Rockbox after loading OF.bin via |<< Option
Post by: TobiMan on March 17, 2007, 10:33:27 AM
Hello Forum!

I've installed Rockbox on my Sansa e200 according to the instructions without any problems.
Rockbox booted normally and I switched to the original firmware by pressing |<< on while turning on the player. The original firmware also loaded normally but after turning off the player and turning on again, it still loads the original firmware and not Rockbox.

I assumed the OF.bin is only loaded while pressing the |<< button during startup, else Rockbox is loaded. I am only able to get Rockbox again, when reinstalling the bootloader.

Am I missing a point here or is this wanted? I searched the installing instructions and other parts of rockbox.org but could not find a solution.

Thank you for your help.

Regards

Tobi

Most likely, you didn't install the actually rockbox firmware (mi4).  Somewhere there's a prebuilt copy of it, but I can't find it.  Otherwise, you'll have to use mi4code to build it manually.

EDIT: Here's the rockbox firmware: http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/sandisk-sansa/e200/PP5022.mi4

Copy that over to your Sansa, along with everything in this zip file (http://build.rockbox.org/dist/build-sansae200/rockbox.zip) and it should work.
