There is, but it does not work at times with some Windows versions.

Edit: If you want Rockbox, there is a way to install Rockbox without doing this.

1. Does installing Linux automatically remove Windows?
Depending on your choices during installation. It can be set yp to dual boot.

3. How do I uninstall Linux once I'm finished?
If you are only going to use it once, you should use a live CD instead.

Depending on the Rockbox theme you are going to use, it might require one of the custom build. Which theme are you trying to use? What happens when you try to load the theme.

You can try. The problem is that very very few people have gotten e200tool to work under Windows.

sorry for bringing up an old thread. but, every time I try to run the e200tool command, this is what comes up:

Code:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~/sansa$ ./e200tool recover BL_SD_BOARDSUPPORTSD.rom
bash: ./e200tool: No such file or directory
BTW, I'm using ubuntu v8.04.

You need to change its permissions to executable, if you have a graphical desktop, just right click, go to permissions, then check executable.
If you only have a command line, do "sudo chmod +x e200tool"

You probably do not have e200tool in the "sansa" folder. Where did you download it to?

I have done everything said in the tutorial, word by word. the file is executable I have used the "sudo" command line and the best I get is a "bash: e200tool: command not found" message. I don't know what else to do. it's like the file won't run on ubuntu 8.04 live cd at all.

I should point out that I'm a total noob when it comes to linux, but I know how to follow instructions faithfully.

Once again, where did you download e200tool to?

I used Ubuntu 8.03, but it wasn't a live cd...That shouldn't make a difference, though

I've downloaded it to several locations. first I tried the guide's default "e200tool" folder and since it didn't run I've tried many other locations, including the home folder. the thing is that I right-click on the file and it says that it's executable, except that it won't execute at all. thanks for trying to help.

Ok, I manage to complete the procedure, but my sansa still hangs with a black screen and blue ring on. this is really frustrating.

Well, that would explain why it wasn't in the "sansa" folder. Sounds like you managed to put it there, or else switch to a folder where you had put it though.

How sure are you that you did it correctly?

Sorry to bump an old topic, but I tried this procedure, and I get stuck at the ./e200tool recover BL_SD_SUPPORTSD.rom part

After I type that in I get
Code:
e200tool v0.2.3-alpha (c) by MrH 2006, 2007
Searching for device 0781:0720 ... found!
Failed to claim the interface (-1, Operation not permitted)
Searching for device 0b70:0003 ... 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 not found!
Any help? I am pressing the record button when executing the command
I am in the right directory also

Using Ubuntu 9.04 and Sansa e260R
