How to Boot Original Firmware

To go into the original firmware, turn on your Sansa while holding down " |<< "

I installed Rockbox before using the old method (without sansapatcher). Now when I try to use sansapatcher, it gives me the error "OLD ROCKBOX INSTALLATION DETECTED, ABORTING". What should I do?

The sansapatcher tool has detected that you have previously installed Rockbox using the old installation method. In order to continue, you first need to restore the original SanDisk firmware to your Sansa. This can be achieved in either of the following ways:

a) Using the SanDisk Firmware Updater

Download the SanDisk Firmware Updater and run it. It should guide you through installing the latest Sandisk firmware on your Sansa.

b) Using a PP5022.mi4 file

If you have a SanDisk PP5022.mi4 file with the SanDisk firmware in it, just put it into the root directory of your Sansa. If your Sansa is running version 1.03 or above of the SanDisk firmware you will need to rename this file to firmware.mi4. Now unplug the USB cable and make sure to start back up into the SanDisk firmware again (by holding |<< if you have the Rockbox bootloader currently installed). It should give a message saying that it is upgrading the firmware.

If you don't have the original mi4 firmware around, try getting one from: http://daniel.haxx.se/sansa/mi4.html

Once you have done so, you can go back and complete the bootloader installation.
