On August 24, 2011, San Disk announced the Sansa Clip Zip, an update to the Clip .
Two versions are available, a 4 GB model for US and an 8 GB model for US.
Read the firmware change log / revision history Some info - those files come directly from the Sansa Updater app.
After the updated firmware has been downloaded via the Sansa Updater, the firmware file is plain visible in the root folder of the Sansa (before you disconnect/reboot the Sansa, when the actual upgrade takes place - after that it's gone).
Rockbox is a free replacement firmware for digital music players.There is nothing labelled as such in the Sansa Clip folder when it's plugged into my computer, nor in my file system. Would it have another name, or be located where I'm not thinking to look?root is a generic name for the top-level directory of a file system tree.I'd used the stock firmware for a while and had no feature issues with it. Pick the correct mountpoint for the player, click Install: It'll ask for stock firmware, browse to (which I had downloaded during stock firmware update, described in the beginning of this article). Switching from default theme: Rockbox includes lots of user contribued themes for the Sansa Clip After trying a couple, settled on Yellow Bar.Then I noticed the device occasionally freezing, seemingly when coming across certain music files. Power button would not work, requiring a long select power key press to restart.
