OK - looks like it's the same process for all of the players. I had fallen prey to the whole "format any card you put in regardless of whether it's already formatted", so I had LOST the update image and had to copy it over again.|
1. copy the update image to your SDCARD
2. (Power off). Power on while holding down the Home button.
3. Release the Home button after the logo shows
4. It displays that it's updating (with seriously abysmal formatting issues)
5. It only took a few seconds, then screen went black to a powered off state
MORE feedback during the process would be AWESOME!
+ a progress bar?
+ a message that tells you it successfully completed (instead of the momentary panic thinking it had bricked itself)
+ recovery mode while connected to the computer?
