  Its not bricked... I can load the O.F., but I highly dislike the O.F. Please help me rockbox this baby.

  I followed the linux instructions here:
  and then here:

  The Sansa rebooted, then said updating firmware, then restarted. Now, it starts up, I get a quick flash of the ROCKBOX logo, then it says:

ATA error: -219Press ON to debug

  I can connect via USB. If I do, it shows the following text (I took a picture so I could write this all out before the screen changed to the "Connected" screen:

  Any help getting Rockbox on this thing would be greatly appreciated!
