Default i have some simple questions about starting rockbox-can i get some quick responses?

1. Is Rockbox available for the e200R?
2. If you want to take off Rockbox and go back to the original firmware, is it possible?
3. In the process of installing Rockbox, will my data be lost?
4. Is there a way to make the Rockbox menu theme look a bit less...primative? I saw something about "Rockbox Themes" are those similar to H3MOD themes for the e200? And are Rockbox Themes available for the e200R?

Thanks guys, and if you can please give me a quick response in the interest of time I currently have, that would be great. Thanks again! (and yes I have an e200R/Rhapsody player, )

1) Yes
2) Yes
3) If you do not format, the data will be there.
4) You can't use the H3Mods in Rockbox. The e200 themes are the same for e200R in Rockbox.

Hopefully I answered your questions.

thanks, you were very helpful-but I forgot one question: is there a chance of bricking my sansa with Rockbox? And is the e200 version the samea s the e200R install or do i have to download a different installer?

Unless you have real trouble carefully following directions, you won't brick your Sansa. It's actually not that easy to do.

Just make sure you follow the directions that are explicitly for the R.

Yea, there is two different installer, one for the e200 and another for the e200R. The e200R installer will only install the modified Sansa bootloader. If you follow the steps right you will not brick it. Then again, it is tough to brick an e200/e200R series.
