Default Removing Hebrew Firmware

Removing Hebrew Firmware

For a few months, SanDisk had a beta firmware out. This firmware was different in that it uses a different filename for upgrading the bootloader and firmware.

Remove Hebrew Firmware
  • Put the Sansa into Recovery Mode as described in the Recovery Mode thread.
  • Download a copy of the latest non-Hebrew firmware, which can be found in the Manual Firmware Download thread.
  • Rename the downloaded PP5022.MI4 file (if you downloaded a file ending in .zip, extract the contents) to firmware.mi4 (case sensitive).
  • Save the firmware.mi4 file onto the 16MB-FORMAT drive that appears in My Computer on Windows, and on the Desktop on Linux (and possibly Mac)
  • Repeat for the bootloader, downloading the latest non-Hebrew bootloader (can be found in the Manual Firmware Download thread, linked above), renaming it to pribootLoader.rom which must also be saved onto the 16MB-FORMAT drive.
  • Disconnect the Sansa. The Sansa's screen should say that it is writing the firmware image, followed by the bootloader.
  • Check to see if the Hebrew firmware is removed. If it is not, repeat these steps.
