Default This ROcks! No pun intended.

I know I am a little behind the curve on installing rockbox on my e260, but I finally did it last night and I can not believe all the functions, features and extra stuff that I have now!

Thanks a bunch for all those here and on Rockbox.org for this work.

I guess the only question I have is of all this is possible why did Sansa dumb down their interface so much!

They "dumbed" it down in hopes of appealing to a larger customer base, why else would a company spend R&D dollars on such a tactic.

My guess is it was an attempt to "idiot-proof" them
not meaning you are an idiot, by the way....but if you were to read through the SanDisk forums, some of the help requests just make you want to

Almost every Mp3 player I've touched has been 'dumbed' down. Thank God for Rockbox. I can do whatever I want with my dap now.

I see.......Wonder what all could be done with the Apple iTouch if you had access to everything it really can do...

Thanks for the replies. Now I need to but a new battery!
