Title: Sansa e260 not booting Rockbox in car
Post by: Sot on September 14, 2009, 03:36:36 PM
I've installed Rockbox on my e260 and I'm loving it all except for one problem that's a real pain in my side.

When I turn it on under normal conditions, it boots into Rockbox just fine, and I can hit the left arrow during boot to get back to the original firmware if I want to.  But I always keep it in my car where it gets USB power as soon as I start the engine, and in that situation it does this:
I then have to disconnect the USB power and reboot to get to Rockbox, and reconnect the USB power.

How can I get it to always boot to Rockbox?  I'd be perfectly fine NEVER booting to the original firmware.

The current bootloaders do not have support for the Rockbox USB mode.  If you check out the forum thread Sansa, H10 and M:robe 100 bootloaders (http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php?topic=22130.0) you will find new bootloaders with Rockbox USB enabled.
