<span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 11pt;">Sorry, it's just hard for
me to remember a time when I didn't know about Rockbox. Basically it replaces
the original sansa firmware. Actually it just installs over the original
firmware, which means you can go back to it if you don't like Rockbox. Rockbox
has many different themes you can install, different colors different text
sizes ect. And I think practically all of them have a 'percentage of battery
left' indicator. The way you do it is simple, go download the installer (<a href="http://www.rockbox.org/download/"><font color="#0000ff">http://www.rockbox.org/download/</font></a>)
and then it should walk you though the rest.
<span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 11pt;"><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 11pt;">

Some important things are: 1. Plug your fuze in<span style="font-family: Arial;"> before you run the Rockbox installer. 2. Make sure the
Sansa is in<span style="font-family: Arial;"> MSC mode.
You can't install Rockbox if the Sansa is in MTP mode. 3. Also you must know is
if you have a <span style="font-family: Arial;">V2 fuze
or a <span style="font-family: Arial;">V1. Then, you go
to the 'change' button at the very top of the dialog box and select yours from
the list. If you are lucky just hitting auto detect will work. Also, don't
forget that next to the 'themes' they have a 'customize' button. It lets you go
in and chose which themes you want it to install. I always select them all,
they don't take you much space and you can try them all out and chose which one
you like. And remember, you can customize whatever theme you chose (text color,
size, background color).

Here is the Rockbox installation manual page for the fuze (<a href="http://download.rockbox.org/daily/manual/rockbox-sansafuze/rockbox-buildch2.html#x4-60002"><font color="#0000ff">http://download.rockbox.org/daily/manual/rockbox-sansafuze/rockbox-buildch2.html#x4-60002</font></a>)
<span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 11pt;">Sorry if that's too much.
It really is worth it. I love my rockbox it does everything I ask it to do. I
think my favorite feature is being able to create bookmarks and have a whole
list of them so I can go back and forth between many tracks at the same point I
left.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;"> <font size="3"><font face="Times New Roman">Have fun!</font></font>
