Help Newbee: Force to install earlier f/w

Hi Everybody,
I just started using this forum, i read around and it is an amazing forum.

I found on this page here how to update your firmware to the newest version (1.03.01H) which I am extremely dissatisfied with. I have tried installing a previous version using recovery mode and I have tried without recovery mode. Can someone please walk me through the process to get back to my old firmware? I dont understand this very well, so you'll have to use lamens terms. (download this, put it on mp3 player, restart mp3) NOT (recalculate the hex of the DLL library on the rom file when placed in the H drive, i dont understand that).

Thanks in advance!!! :-)


By the way, the reason I am dissatisfied is because it incorrectly organizes my library, it will put %10 of the artists in the albums section, and vice versa. I can see why its beta.

You need to boot into recovery mode. You need to rename the older firmware to firmware.mi4 from pp5022.mi4 and pribootloader.rom from BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom. You might want to put the sansa.fmt file on it too.

When I open the reovery mode, 16MB-FORMAT window shows up and the only thing there is a VERSION text doc. Where is all the stuff I need to rename? Can you provide download links for all the files, please? I dont know where they are.

By the way, i accendentally did something, dont know what. But it might be helpful to someone. Whenever i attempt to access the drive

LUN0 locked
LUN0 unlocked

repeatedly shows up
