Default Deleting the bootloader from within rockbox?

I may have screwed up my Sansa. Basically, I wanted to install ReverseBL on my Sansa. I saw a forum about this, but you needed a Windows computer to install it, and I use macs. Someone said that you could get the same results by remaining a downloadable .mi4 file to PP05022.mi4 and putting that on my Sansa. Stupidly, I did this withput doing research as to what this would actually do. I saw a "Fimrware upgrade in process" message, then when it rebooted, I got errors about missing files, such as OF.bin. If I hold down the center button, I can boot to rockbox, so I know it's the bootloader that's the trouble. I was wondering if I could delete the bootloader from within rockbox so I can charge my player and update my music.

Sorry for the long paragraph and thanks for any help.

Follow the unbrick instructions on the Rockbox wiki.

Also, you don't need Windows to install a bootloader, the tools run on pretty much every operating system.

Thanks so much. I'm a bit of a noob, so you really helped. I also got the bootloader I wanted to install installed, so it all worked out in the end.
