Default SanDisk Sansa c140 Firmware update failed for 2.0.008A (bricked)

Regarding SanDisk Sansa c140 (1GB):

If, like me, you attempted to update your Sansa's firmware to 2.0.008A (it's an update that comes in the form of a rom file that you copy directly to the player, in the root file area) and the update failed, you may still be able to save the device (even if it appears to be completely unresponsive).

Just follow these instructions:

Even if nothing happens when you connect the device to your computer (no new drive available in My Computer and no New Hardware Wizard prompt appears), you may still be able to update the firmware.
Just be sure to hold down the Select button as instructed and allow a minute or two for the device to become visible to the firmware utility.
