Title: switching to OF in sansa E260R
Post by: electronicsguy on March 15, 2008, 03:31:25 PM
Hello,
 Â     I am new to rockbox. I just installed it and everything lookx good. I was switching between rockbox and the OF by pressing the "|<<" during boot. It displays an error message like "cannot load from partition..invalid file format blah blah...trying in /system/OF.mi4" ...and then it loads the OF.

I know it does seem to work, but is the error message normal ?

Thanks.

Yes. See, first the bootloader checks if the OF is located in the hidden partition. For the vanilla series, the installer puts it there. For the R series, it is located on the main partition, so it can't find it on the hidden one, shows the error, and then loads OF.mi4.
