Default 30 pin failure, boot from MSD? (Solved)

Hi, my E250 has some trouble, the 30 pin connector isn't working, so therefore I can't
install Rockbox.
I already had it installed, and was transferring files via the Msd, and I somehow
copied over the .rockbox folder (I know it was stupid).

So what I need is a way to install Rockbox from the Msd, or something like that.

If you had a 2nd sansa you'd be able to swap memory, install rockbox, then swap back again. I don't know if it could be done with the Msd.

You need a special build which is configured to boot from the microsd. That's very possible and not that hard.

You also need a special bootloader which isn't as easy to install as a build with broken USB :S

I managed to hold the usb connector together, and I got it installed.
Thanks for all your advice!
