Default Manual Firmware Download and Installation (V2.0)

Manual Firmware Installation and Download

Installation Instructions
Scroll Down for Download Section
For Non-Rhapsody e200 Series Players Only
If you have a Rhapsody (e200R) player, refer to the SanDisk website regarding the process done through RealOne.

There are two methods of installing firmware manually. Use the Normal Method, hence the name Normal. USE RECOVERY MODE ONLY IF NORMAL FAILS. You have a much more likely chance of bricking it in recovery mode.

Disclaimer: These instructions are not official. Jeffsey500, AnythingButiPod, its users nor affiliates assume responsibility for any damages and losses. Though these instructions are checked for accuracy and probability of failiure is extremely low, you still install manually at your own risk.


Normal
  • Turn device on and set the USB mode to MSC (Settings > USB Mode > MSC)
  • Connect the player to your computer.
  • Optional But Recommended: Format Device
  • Copy the .mi4 firmware file to the root directory of the device.
    Do NOT copy the .rom file unless you are upgrading to 1.03.xx firmware or downgrading from 1.03.xx firmware.
  • Safely Disconnect Device
  • Wait for device to process. It will restart, refresh database, and restart again.
  • Format device. Reload music.
Recovery Mode
  • Turn device off. Activate the hold switch.
  • While holding the REC button, turn the device on.
  • Connect cable when prompted.
  • If Sansa Updater tells you there is an update, instruct it to do nothing and cancel.
  • Device will connect as a 16MB drive on your computer.
    DO NOT delete anything.
  • Copy the .mi4 firmware file to the root of this directory.
    Do NOT copy the .rom file unless you are upgrading to 1.03.xx firmware or downgrading from 1.03.xx firmware.
  • Safely Disconnect Device
  • Device will commit the firmware and restart.
  • Format device. Safely Disconnect. Wait for it to restart. Then reload music.

Download Firmware
Throughly Read Installation Instructions
Please Post Any Availaible Firmware Files Here (Links to files on other services like www.FileSend.net).

To use these updates, copy the .mi4 file to your player in MSC mode, unplug and restart. You may need to copy the .rom file for 1.03.xx firmware installs from 1.02xx. Otherwise, do NOT copy the .rom file over.

Disclaimer: These downloads are not official (these are created by, but not hosted by the manufacturer). Jeffsey500, AnythingButiPod, its users nor affiliates assume responsibility for any damages and losses. File transfer errors can occur, be suspicious if the file size is incorrect. Consider choosing downloads with MD5 checksums. You download an use at your own risk. Firmware downloaded here technically voids your warranty, not that is it noticable .
