YES! YOU ARE MY MAN!
This guy just helped me so much to recover my player (we've got the same model). It started when I (Patrick) gave him my Firmware firmware dump 3.5.37
which works fine on his player. I just wanted to try his old firmware on mine player, just to take a look and we both thougt there couldn't be any problem, because we have the same type of player. So for short, I put the 3.5.35 fw on my player and it worked, but when I tried to reflash my player, it didn't work and we tested many firmwares in almost 1 day... Finally I wanted to give up, but just a few minutes ago, FLASHGET send me an email with the link to this great firmware:
I tried it, like he recommended me to do and what can I say? IT'S ALIVE MUAHAHA!!! Amazing, this little mashine was almost dead and after Flashing it with that fw, I just had to Format it... Ok, the format-progress finished unsuccessfully, but it seems to me, that tha Player works great, just as nothing happened
