Hi Folks, I hope that someone in the collective can help me with this one... I am running 3.52 M33-4 on a TA-082 motherboard. This was a Jap import downgraded from 3.03 to 1.5 using the GTA LCS exploit. Upgraded to 3.40 OE-A, this is when the problem first appeared. What uswed to happen was If I set the recovery menu to run with No UMD - there was not a problem. If I set to run with a UMD (to play some of my other backups - and they are backups too) then If I powered off completly then I would lose ALL my recovery menu settings, it would revert to 1.5 kernel, all the advanced settings enable themselves etc so that basically nothing runs. My fist attempt at a fix was to delete config.se and let it rebuild itself - this kind of worked, ie it rebuilt config.se but then I could ONLY boot to recovery if I set the 'no umd' option to 'Disable'. What I did then was to update my CFW to 3.52 M33-4 (I took care doing this ie no umd in the bay etc). I can now use the 'no umd' to play all my backups. If I set 'no umd' to 'disable' and power off totally I keep all my settings. The Problem is if I use my own wallpaper, now when I power off I lose all my settings again. Reading the forums, I can see that one suggestion is to format flash 1, re-create the directories manually and then re-boot. There is however an option in the recovery menu on M33-4 to do this, can I ask if this re-creates all the directories required? The reason I ask is that I am currently without a PC again (long story) and this might be the easiest way to sort my problem (other than sticking to a standard theme of course). Can anyone help shed some light on this please?
