Besides the online documentation:

I can try to summarize the needed steps.
¬°Actually it's best to use the graphical installer as Shiner pointed out!

You can also install Rockbox manually, but that means you MUST follow
the documentation:

Plus you SHOULD be able to update the original firmware manually.
Installing Rockbox is not much harder then installing the original
firmware. So if you have to downgrade your device just see if the new
original firmware works as expected. The vendor describes how it goes:

Sansa Clip Zip Firmware 01.01.18

Sansa Clip Zip Firmware 01.01.20

Unless you've never worked with the 'command prompt' then that's
another barrier when installing Rockbox manually. Unfortunately,
people should therefore turn to use the graphical installer. And I
recommend to use the graphical program. If you run into trouble with
that procedure, I don't have nice ideas.

Kind regards,
