Ignore the email I sent - I confused the device ID for Manu mode with Recovery Mode.

Most of the info on http://www.2plus2equal5.org/index.ph...ver-sansa-e2x0 is surprisingly accurate - a little seems slightly confusing, but oh well - it should be safe to follow those directions.

As the link says, you need e200tool, not sansapatcher. Try this:

-----
RAND=$RANDOM
echo $RAND
mkdir /tmp/$RAND
cd /tmp/$RAND
wget http://daniel.haxx.se/sansa/e200tool/e200tool
wget http://daniel.haxx.se/sansa/e200/BL_...dSupportSD.rom
wget http://daniel.haxx.se/sansa/e200/PP5022.mi4
touch sansa.fmt
chmod +x e200tool
------
At this point, you should have all the files you need. The next few steps aren't hard, but Manu mode has some sort of timeout, meaning you need to be somewhat fast.
Put your Sansa in Manu mode:
Turn on hold
Press and hold select
Connect USB cable
Release select
-----
sudo ./e200tool recover BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom
##Hold the REC button on your Sansa while this is executing and for 10 seconds after it finishes
----

You should now be in Recovery Mode. Dunno what distro you're using, but I'll assume the following two things:
Your distro will auto mount the recovery mode drive.
It will mount it to /media/disk

Modify the following step as needed if either of those two are inaccurate.
----
cp BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom PP5022.mi4 sansa.fmt /media/disk
----

After that finishes, unmount your Sansa, and disconnect it. Turn off hold, let it write all the files, and see if it works.

I got the emails. I'll try tomorrow when I'm mentally fresh and not in a rush. My aim now is to put Rockbox on it.

Provided everything's working alright, you should be able to follow the directions at http://download.rockbox.org/manual/r....html#x4-60002 to install Rockbox.

I got RockBox Installed, but I put an .m4b file on my micro SD card. and that managed to corrupt it. I thought it might play with Rockbox, but it didn't and when I deleted it, it wouldn't go away. Then the Sansa player couldn't be seen by USB as a result of the corrupted card. So I think I'm going to give up on Rockbox for now. I have the Player working with the factory software, and I feel it's best to just leave it at that. I only paid $17.00 for the micro SD card, but I'm still disappointed that it's now terminal.

I'm using your version of Rockbox which I must say is cooler than the stock RockBox. I like the VU meters running on the bottom of the screen. I wish you had a similar bar that showed the volume setting,
