This is necessary as using \opt{} in the code block would % create unwanted empty lines. \begin{code}[firstline=\opt{fuzeplus}{1},% lastline=\opt{fuzeplus}{1}] mkimxboot.exe -i firmware.sb -b bootloader-fuzeplus.sansa -o patched.sb \end{code} If mkimxboot.exe does not report success, then retry or abort. \item Copy the output file (patched.sb'' in the example given above) to the root of the device and rename it to the same name as the OF file you downloaded earlier \opt{fuzeplus}{(firmware.sb''} above). \item Safely eject the device, unplug USB and wait for the firmware update to finish. \end{enumerate} \subsection{Bootloader installation from Mac OS X and Linux} \begin{enumerate} \item Create a folder called rbinstall'' in your home directory, and then extract the OF, the bootloader and mkimxboot into it. \item Open a new terminal, and navigate to the rbinstall'' folder. \item Run mkimxboot, passing the name of the OF and bootloader files that you downloaded, in addition to a name for the output file. % See above for the code environment arguments explanation. \begin{code}[firstline=\opt{fuze}{1},% lastline=\opt{fuze}{1}] ./mkimxboot -i firmware.sb -b bootloader-fuzeplus.sansa -o patched.sb \end{code} If mkimxboot does not report success, then retry or abort. \item Copy the output file (patched.sb'' in the example given above) to the root of the device and rename it to the same name as the OF file you downloaded earlier \opt{fuzeplus}{(firmware.sb''} above). \item Safely eject the device, unplug USB and wait for the firmware update to finish. \end{enumerate}
