No, they won't. Or rather, they can't since Rockbox is GPL licensed and if they would use our code code in anything they'd be obliged to adhere to the GPL license rules and then they'd have to release their own source code under a compatible license... and SanDisk won't do that. In fact, they quite likely can't do that since they most certainly aren't the owner of all source code used in their players.

And Rockbox already exists and works splendidly on lots of players, it just isn't ported to the Sansa e200 (yet).

There is but one single thread in the Rockbox forum to track what's happening with Rockbox for e200:

Looks like it won't be released until next year but I'm still hyped up for it!! I hope it will support Korean, as well as other languages.

They got the LCD working and a small firmware to show when you press buttons and stuff (which is basically the hardest part). Development should speed up significantly as of now...
