You can boot your Sansa Clip with Sansa firmware by pressing the left button while you power your Sansa Clip on. I don't know if the above is supported with Clip t, I would think it should. Another tip, you want to set the Sansa USB mode to MCP so that when you connect your Sansa-Rockbox to your computer, your computer will be able to recognize it. One thing with Rockbox that I haven't figured it out is when I choose to play. Either way, I have created a utility which should extract firmware from your current player. It may also manual camera takes pictures every 30 seconds be able to write it, but I have not tested it. download it here. I accept no responsibility if this bricks your device, I have only tested. Running it with the -l option will give you a partition table, so you can see for sure if the device you specified is correct (there is a hidden 20mb parition which stands out). Keep in mind if you choose the wrong drive for writing. Alternative firmware development Well, it looks like Sandisk has contacted. RockBox to see if they can port RockBox to it ( link ). From what I have gathered, this should not be to difficult to do due to the similarity to the iPod Nano 2nd. I want to play the songs by album and based on the original song order. Does anyone know how I can do this? Edited by ckatili - at 7:56pm. There is also quite a bit more space to add new code, and it may be possible to have 2 firmwares in places (so it could dual boot). Well that is all I have been able to gather from the software side of things. This should create a 20Mb firmware backup file. The Sansa uses a hidden second partition to store its firmware, and a basic bootloader at the beginning of the drive to jump to it. There is some extra data before what the firmware files by Sansa. I installed Rockbox on my Sansa Clip a week ago. It is great firmware with more options than the Sansa firmware. BTW, Rockbox firmware is installed side by side with the Sansa Clip firmware, so you can always toggle between the two. At least there is an easy way to get new firmware to the device (same basic way as the iPod).
