Subject: RE: Sansa Fuze V2 Firmware Updates

RE: Sansa Fuze V2 Firmware Updates

Well once again, I was able to successfully compile things, but after
rebooting the Fuze, it still wants to load the Sansa firmware. In fact, it
acts like it just rejected the modified firmware, and didn't even make an
effort to install anything. Just to see if it would install firmware at
all, I reinstalled the 02.03.33 firmware, and everything went just fine. In
fact, it was like I had completely refreshed everything.

So for what ever reason, my Fuze doesn't like modified firmware. Any and
all help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you patch the same firmware file that you successfully flashed your
player with? Make sure that you've carefully read the installation
instructions in your player's <> manual.

Please contact developers in IRC <> - they'll be
able to help you with this (I can't help you more than this).

 Hi Tomer,
Yes, I did patch the same firmware file that I was using. Every time I've
made an attempt, I've followed both the Sansa instructions, as well as the
Rockbox instructions to the letter. It's as if the patched firmware isn't
passing a checksum process or something, and is being rejected by the
player. As a matter of fact, the patched firmware file gets left on the
Fuze after each attempt, where the non-patched file gets deleted after a
successful firmware install.
