ok, so i didnt really get any of that, but i followed the directions as best as i could, but when i try to "Now, go to start->run and type cmd and press enter
type: cd c:\e200tool
Now, put your Sansa in manufacturing mode:
1. Make sure it is off
2. Turn on the lock at the top
3. Hold centre button (keep holding it)
4. Plug the player in
It will prompt you to install drivers, just ignore this.
5. Release the centre button, press and hold rec button while running:
e200tool recover BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom (or whatever the .rom filename is)
According to MrH:
" it doesnt turn on at all, just the blue sroll wheel again. ugh

The windows copy of e200tool has been removed, IIRC, because it has worked for very few people. Error messages will help in figuring out your problem though.

Default My Sansa Was Saved and Umbricked!!

Thanks to MRh and Chrisjs, and Daniel and Rockbox, now I resurrect my Sansa. Many things that its in this thread happened to me: e200tool cannot run, e200tool cannot find the sansa, the recover process runs but the recovery mode cannot works etc. By my experience and more important the support of Chrisjs Now i can put this steps:

First, I download the LiveCD ISO image (ubuntu 5.04 or 7.04) for Run Linux Ubuntu on a PC, but is very important that you download the correct version for you PC, look here: http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/5.04/ or here if you computer is more recent http://releases.ubuntu.com/7.04/
Note. For the first time I use Live CD for PwerPc in Mac, it works, but e200tool no on it, you need a PC computer.

When you enter to Linux, you must copy to home folder this files:
PP5022.mi4
BL_SD_BOARDSUPPORTSD.rom
and the e200tool

Or you can see this steps that can help you to Find the files:
http://chrisjs.com/?page_id=57

Since the sansa maybe is in manufacturer mode (bricked), you need to be sure that is in, turn off the player, turn on the Hold, press the select button 5 seconds and connect to usb but with the select button pressed at least other 5 seconds. Note: I guess that it maybe help because in any attempts the sansa in not finded by the e200tool, and I noticed that when i press the select button for more time this works.

Now run the terminal in linux, and type:

./e200tool recover BL_SD_BOARDSUPPORTSD.rom

Press the REC button on the player and press enter to start the process. IMPORTANT: Press and hold the REC button until the process has finish, don't release before the end

When "Execution started!" appears in terminal your player go to the recovery mode, and now you can unpress the REC button, in this step you will notice that a 16MB disk has appear on the desktop, now you can copy to it the PP5022.mi4 and BL_SD_BOARDSUPPORTSD.rom, when finished the copy you can unmount the disk (click right button on the mouse and select unmount in the menu), Now you can disconnect the player, and turn On.

Emailme if you want the file files needed.

There was a way to in Windows, but it worked randomly. So the best way for now is with a Linux distro that works with the e200tool.

Yowu7446, sounds like you are not in manufacturer mode. Could you try the steps again?

Manufacturing mode should not have anything on the screen, and just the wheel turned on.

hey guys, thanks for advice so far, i have strange problems i need help with or let people know.

i can enter recovering mode using e200tool with many luck.
i can also copy files into the 16mb disk, but i cannot get the sansa to boot those file correctly.
i think i didnt not copy correctly

RIGHT now, after i copied the files, i have in front of me a sansa screen displaying

"welcome to recovery mode"
usb cable connected
enter usb2.0 msd mode
LUN0: locked
LUN0: Unlocked
LUN0: locked
LUN0: Unlocked
LUN0: locked

even though the usb cab is disconnected!!


hmmmmm. i had just about enough, i think its gone.

The "LUN0: locked LUN0: Unlocked" sounds normal. Did you switch the hold off before disconnecting the Sansa?

this time after i copied i tried to reject the disk by rightclick on disk at desktop and reject, a window shows its writing files. then it stops at an error message:

unable to find or open device 'dev/sda

what does that mean, i think this problem is associated with the sansa not being read probably by the computer or linux?

YEAH!!!, i am not sure what was wrong, i have fixed it!!! my sansa is working again. i may have been right about the fact that the files needs to be written to the disk correctly before you could disconnect, i figured it out with many trial and error,

dont give up.

and come back here, the guys here are really helpful.

Forget about Windows. It only worked for a handful of lucky people. Booting off a Linux LiveCD is easier and won't make any strange changes to your computer (which the windows tool did do.) Also, one thing worth noting is that if you don't run e200tool either in a root terminal or with the sudo command, it won't work.
