Title: Sansa e260 v2 reboots ad infinitum
Post by: manzanita on October 06, 2010, 06:57:09 PM
I finally got Rockbox installed on my Sansa e260, and now when I plug it in to USB, it reboots repeatedly.  There is no error screen; it just boots back and forth between the starting screen and my database.  Does anyone have any idea what's going on?

It's a v2 with 3.6 on it.

This was just discussed in IRC.  It turns out that 3.6 is too old to work with the current bootloader when you plug in USB.  You'll either have to update, install the previous pre-3.6 bootloader, or not insert USB when your player is off. 

Edit:  to be even more clear, I would just update to the current build.  It has full USB support, while 3.6 doesn't.

I did this, and now the USB mode works, but when I turn it on, it hangs at "Committing databse (1/9)"

Random guess:  corrupt file system, corrupt files, etc.  Try checking the disk for errors.

You already have the original firmware on the player.  You just need to boot into it.  Take a look at the manual, its all in there.

Was this ever fixed? I just picked up a cheap e260v2 to throw rockbox on and am running into the same issue. Rockbox installs fine. but when I plug in the USB cord it goes into a reboot loop. Unplugging allows it to boot normally and function.

I have reverted back to the OF for now but REALLY want rockbox rockin' this player.

Hi saratoga, thanks so much for the reply. I'm sorry I missed that for some dumb reason.

I am using Rutil to install, can you walk me through installing a newer build?

If you're really confused, I think this is all in the manual.  But the steps are something like "run rbutil and update to the current build".

Edit:  yeah, choose "install rockbox" then "current build" when it asks which rockbox you want to install.
