My understanding is that Rockbox only works on Fuze v1, not on v2, and I

Unfortunately, I had a shock when I received my Sansa Fuze from Amazon. In
spite of assurances from customer care that tthe model I ordered was a v1
model, it turned out to be a v2 one!

I promptly contaccted Amazon and they told me to send it over for a full
refund. Now I've decided to play it safe and purchase the Fuze rockbox-ready
from and I thank Bjorn for bringing this
site to my attention.

Good day
