Hi Gerardo and welcome to Rockbox!

I too am rather new to Rockbox (at least to the more technical aspects like cross-compilers and daily builds and such) And it does appear to me that you have installed a daily build. Fortunately this isn't really that much of a problem; I have been running a daily build on my Sansa v2 for two months and have not had serious stability issues. If you really want a stable build though, you can use rbutil to install it rather than uninstalling and reinstalling manually. Simply select the latest stable build, then below select only to install Rockbox (not the bootloader or game files and the like). Plug in your zip, click install and you should be done. Note that I have never actually downgraded a Rockbox install like this; I believe it should work though. Hopefully other, more experienced community members can corroborate my strategy :)

The best of luck!

Jack

NOTE: I'm sorry if I sent everyone the same email twice, but I don't think I chose reply all the first time I replied. I'm pretty new to mailing lists and am prone to mistakes. Again, I am very sorry.

I'm wanting to get my Zip as it should, installing Rockbox stable version, but how would I go about doing this? Would Ihave to uninstall everything and reinstall, or is there an easier way I might not know? Keep in mind, I'm very very new in Rockboxing, thus any step by step instructions would be very useful!
