i have done it with the instructions too

7.- If it says "Firmware Unlocked, Proceed to Step 2" then it was successful and you can continue

mine just says "patching successfully"

then i do the rest of steps but in the end i get that message

can't load main image switch to recovery mode

Sounds like it did not patch right. Could you try the e200rpatcher again? If that does not work, sounds like you might have a bad download. Could you try to redownload the e200rpatcher?

You need to patch the Sansa bootloader because the e200R has a checksum that is used.

That is what the e200rpatcher is for. What OS are you using? Are you an admin on that computer?

Weird. Can you try a different computer? Could you even boot to a Linux LiveCD and try it that way?
