RE: installation on sansa fuze V2

Hi Al,

 

What I'd do...

 

Download the RB files. Makesure to grab the RB Fonts as well from the
Extras page. Unzip these directly onto the player.

 

Run the bootloader . Let it patch your Sansa.

Disconnect the player from your computer. If it hasnt' powered off, power
it off. Then turn it back on. Did RB boot?

 

I haven't looked at the Fuse manual. I installed RB on an E20 a few months
back and after reading the manual I figured out that away from all the other
details there this was the process in a nutshell.

 

I'm on a Microsoft Certified Professional course at the moment so I dont'
have a free minute to flick through the manual. If you are still having
problems write back and I'll be able to commit some time on Monday afternoon
to flick through the Fuse's manual and write something up to take you
through it.

 

Cheers,

Barry.

Hi Barry thanks for this, I have now downloaded and extracted the files to
my pc prior to installation on my n86, would you or any other list member
assist with the following queeries as I don't quite follow the insttructions
despite reading the FAQ'S.

 

1. WHICH IS INSTALLED FIRST, THE BOOTLOADER OR THE ROCKBOX UTILITY.

 

2. What is meant by "passing" in this extract from the installation
instructions?

"

3.

Run mkamsboot.exe, passing the name of the OF and bootloader files that you
downloaded, in addition to a name for the output file.

   
  mkamsboot.exe fuzpa.bin bootloader-fuzev2.sansa patched.bin
   
"

 

Any clarification would be great as this section is a little difficult to
follow, at least for me.

 

Thanks

 

Alistair

Hi! Having downloaded the Rockbox utility V1.2.8, for a automatic install
and despite reading through the copious material on the Rockbox site I
wonder if I also need to install the bootloader as a separate file or is
this incorporated in the auto-installer?

 

Any help much appreciated

 

Alistair
