Default Unlock Sansa M230 and m250 FM Radio in Europe

Post updated with new information....

Got an m230 or m250 in Europe?

Want the FM Radio?

No Problem just a firmware away.

This has been tested with Europe Firmware 2.2.3E

1. Change USB settings to MSC
2. Plug your player into USB
3. Open 'SYS_CONF.DNC' which should be on your player and change the version number to 2.0.0A
4. Download and run this
5. After updating it should restart twice

NOTE: This will remove everything from your device and it is probably a good idea to reformat the player via explorer afterwards to remove other problems.

Your new firmware will be 2.1.0A.

It should now be possible to update to the latest firmware by using the Sansa Firmware Updater:

Some people including myself have experienced font problems with Artists and menu titles
after updating to the latest firmware.

This may or may not be related to forcing the US firmware on the Europe device.

A fix for this is indicated in the post below:

Use this information at your own risk, it worked for me but its always possible with such hacks that things might go wrong.

This hack may work on other devices in the m200 range. Post here if you can confirm that it works on the m240 and m260.
