OF.bin is a binary format of the original firmware. It was needed with the old bootloader. If you use the latest ReverseBL bootloader from http://e200.digerati1338.googlepages.com/reversebl, you do not need it since it is stored on the hidden partition. Just download that bootloader and run sansapatcher on it, like the instructions say.

Go to Start -> Run.
Type "cmd" and hit enter.

To make this simple, you should put sansapatcher and the mi4 file on your desktop.

Type "cd Desktop" in the command prompt.
Type "sansapatcher.exe -a ReverseBL-2007-07-31.mi4" in the command prompt.
You should be good to go after that.

I think I will fix the instructions on that page...

That seemed to have some what worked. now it loads the OF when i let it go, and when i hold down the button. any suggestions?

Nevermind, i figured it out. I had to hold the center button for it to load into rockbox. THx alot ! A question though, y when i hold down the left button it goes into the black screen with white lettering , then it goes back to the OF. Y does it do that. The screen says ReverseBL bootloader at the top also.

If you press *any* key it enables boot loader messages. That means the white text on a black background. if you don't press anything, it is hidden.
