Title: Possible e260R v.2+v.1 hybrid installation questions
Post by: SomeShoes on February 08, 2010, 08:22:43 PM
I started out with regular e260R v.2, upgraded the software (to v.03.01.16A if it helps), then found a v.1 software and installed it

my problem is that its showing characteristics from both the v.1 and the v.2 sortware; it has the USB options from v.1, but in options>info it says that is has the v.2 software (also says so when I right click>properties in my computer)

I'd just like to know any different steps I'd take to install rockbox

(windows 7  64-bit btw)

I don't think you can even install the v1 Sansa software onto the v2 Sansa, since they use different hardware. At least, you shouldn't be able to...

If you have a v2 Sansa, you'll need to follow the installation instructions for the v2 Sansa. They can be found here (http://download.rockbox.org/daily/manual/rockbox-sansae200v2/rockbox-buildch2.html#x4-60002).

Theres no such thing as a V2 e260R.  A device can be a V1, V2 or R.  Combinations are not allowed.  A v1 can be changed into an R and back again, but you cannot change a V2 into anything else (nor the reverse).

Your device is and always was a V2 device.  It doesn't matter that you tried to install the v1 firmware, your device will simply ignore it.  Follow the v2 directions when you install rockbox.
