I appreciate the response, and the USB booting worked just fine, but using
SanDisk's .bin files to change the loader isn't working or using the .sb
for either the original or updated SanDisk firmware for the Fuze+ and all
it seems to recognize is the RockBox boot files. Also the SanDisk updater
seems not to recognize my device but is a functioning unit now. If if let
the battery die completely will I still be able to power it on in RockBox
or USB boot it back into the OF to charge it back? And I apologize for the
malformed email subject, will change next send. Best responses so far =D
