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

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.
