build for it so far and I noticed I am able to boot back into the player's
original firmware, but when it's plugged via USB into the computer it wants
to load RockBox and I'm unable to charge it that way or use the USB
functions from the original firmware either. Is there a way to remove the
RockBox bootloader and restore my previous one back because when noted
looking at the RockBox utility the option to "Remove the Bootloader" is
unselectable and trying to drag and drop the original firmware from SanDisk
does nothing either. Where it says "Uninstall RockBox" is selectable but
states, "This will leave the bootloader in place (you need to remove it
manually)" and I couldn't find a manual method on removing it and restoring
the Sansa version. Any help is greatly appreciated. =D

Just install an un-modified version of the original firmware. Sansa Updater
should be able to achieve this (I'd be surprised if it couldn't), or
failing that simply placing an un-modified firmware file at the root of the
device and rebooting should work.
