Sansa e200R/Rhapsody Installation From Linux

Pre-requisites

In order to install Rockbox you MUST have patched the Sandisk bootloader on your device as described in SansaE200RInstallation

Rockbox Installation from Linux

  • Download the following file and place it inside the current {~/sansa} directory: rockbox.zip (wget http://build.rockbox.org/dist/build-sansae200/rockbox.zip http://download.rockbox.org/daily/sansae200/rockbox-sansae200.zip )
  • Unzip this file. (unzip rockbox.zip)
  • Download the following file and place it inside the current {~/sansa} directory: rhapsody-1.0.2.31.zip (wget http://daniel.haxx.se/sansa/e200/rhapsody/rhapsody-1.0.2.31.zip)
  • Unzip this file to receive pp5022.mi4 (unzip rhapsody-1.0.2.31.zip)
  • Rename the resulting file to OF.mi4 (mv pp5022.mi4 OF.mi4) (Oh, not Zero - as in Original Firmware)
  • Download the following file and place it inside the current {~/sansa} directory: pp5022.mi4 (wget http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/sandisk-sansa/e200R/pp5022.mi4)
  • Boot up your device, connect the USB cable and mount the device. (mount /dev/sda1 ~/sansa/mnt) You can verify that the device was correctly mounted by going into the mnt directory and double-checking that there are multiple files and folders inside.
  • Copy pp5022.mi4 to the root of your device (cp pp5022.mi4 mnt/)
  • Copy OF.mi4 to the system folder within your device (cp OF.mi4 mnt/system/)
  • Copy a recent e200 build of Rockbox onto the root of your device (cp .rockbox/ mnt/)
  • Unmount your device. (umount ~/sansa/mnt)
  • Disconnect the USB cable and wait for it to reboot. It should refresh the database, then upgrade the firmware. After another reboot, you should be in Rockbox!
  • Remove the sansa directory. (rm -rf ~/sansa/)
