sansa recovery linux files help
Hi I have a refurb 4 GB e200 and I hosed it up badly. It worked Saturday and I installed Rockbox along with a WPS theme. It worked just fine until i left one of the games. Then the Sandisk logo screen came up and it froze. I restarted it and now I just get the blue ring.
I have tried 3 of the tutorials here and I can get into recovery mode. The 16 Mb disk shows up on Ubuntu desktop. I drag and dropped the 3 files BL_SD_BOARDSUPORT.ROM, PP5022.MI4 and sansa.fmt. I use the unmount command then disconnect the sansa and I get errors. Something about bootloader failed,image failed.
I wonder if the files I am trying to drag and drop are proper format.The Icons look like blue diamonds.
I just saw the new Tutorial and the files look more like text pages rather than blue diamond (applications maybe?)
Also Barskir said he had to capitalize the file extention.
True or not.
I tried it both ways.
I think that my not knowing how to make the files look like they do in Barksirs tutorial may be the issue.
So to sum up
I load Ubuntu
take files from thumbdrive and drag them to the home folder.
open terminal use sudo command
Device found sandisk logo pops up welcome to recovery mode.
16MB created on desktop. drag and drop 3 files
Bootloader failed blue ring again.
I know this is easier than I'm making it out to be.
Can anyone help me out here?
