Difference: SansaC200Port (r47 vs. r46)
Rockbox doesn't function on the v2 models. The v1 hardware uses firmware named 01.xx.xx, while the v2 hardware uses firmware beginning with 03. This version number can be retrieved under Settings->Info.
Full installation and uninstallation instructions for all supported devices are in the Rockbox manual.
There are currently simulators for all Rockbox compatible devices. A simulator can be useful for seeing what Rockbox looks and feels like before installing as well as testing out your homemade themes before putting them on your player. The c200 simulator is here.
Recovery mode can be used to replace a .mi4 image on the player. If you by some reason can't boot into the original firmware, like if you messed up the installation or similar, or you simply want to change the firmware to a different version, recovery mode can be your friend. To get there:
To update the firmware, copy the unzipped files into the 16mb drive, unplug the player, and release the hold switch.
If all else fails, you can try the SansaC200Erase tool to completely wipe your Sansa clean in order to recover it.
To get into Diag mode (not the same as recovery mode):
The e200tool can be used to unbrick a c200 as long as the diag mode works.
This player is clearly PortalPlayer based and uses mi4 files for upgrading. The mi4code tool on the mi4 site is updated to decrypt these mi4 files out-of-the-box.
