Rockbox Themes not showing up on your Sansa e200? You may need to re-install the Rockbox firmware.
What are themes?
Themes are a great way to change the look and feel of your device, and they can be a lot of fun to customize. However, sometimes you may find that your themes are not showing up in the Rockbox interface. This can be frustrating, but there are a few things you can try to fix the issue.
First, make sure that you have installed the latest version of Rockbox. Themes can be incompatible with older versions of the software, so it’s important to keep your installation up-to-date. You can check for updates by going to the Rockbox website and looking under the “Downloads” section.
If you’re still having trouble, try removing any customizations you’ve made to your system files. This includes anything in the “.rockbox” folder on your player. Once you’ve removed these files, restart Rockbox and see if your themes start working again.
If all else fails, you may need to factory reset your device. This will erase all of your data and settings, so make sure you backup everything first! To do a factory reset, go to the “Settings” menu in Rockbox and scroll down to “Factory Reset.” Select this option and follow the prompts to reset your device.
Themes are a great way to change the look and feel of your device, and they can be a lot of fun to experiment with. However, sometimes you may find that your themes are not showing up when you expect them to. This can be due to a few different reasons.
One possibility is that the theme you’re trying to use is incompatible with your device. If this is the case, you’ll need to find a different theme that works with your device. Another possibility is that the theme files are corrupt or incomplete. In this case, you’ll need to redownload or reinstall the theme.
If you’re still having trouble, make sure that you’ve installed the latest version of Rockbox. Sometimes themes will only work with newer versions of Rockbox, so if you’re using an older version, you may need to update. Finally, if all else fails, try asking for help on the Rockbox forums. There’s a good chance someone there has already encountered and solved your problem.
Why do my rockbox themes not show?
If you’ve followed the instructions for installing rockbox themes but they’re not showing up on your device, there are a few things you can check.
First, make sure that you’ve extracted the theme file from the zip archive and copied it to the correct location on your player. Themes need to be placed in the .rockbox/themes folder on your device.
If the theme file is in the correct location but still isn’t showing up, try restarting rockbox. To do this, press and hold the power button until the menu comes up, then select “Restart Rockbox”. This will reload all of the files on your device, including any new themes you’ve added.
If your themes still aren’t showing up after restarting rockbox, double-check that the file name ends in “.cfg” – this is necessary for rockbox to recognize it as a theme file. If the file name doesn’t end in “.cfg”, rename it and try again.
