Factory reset will take you there.

I just updated last night, I can confirm that I don't need to repartition using gparted and no need to do factory reset, able to retain all my setting after update.

FYI: Factory reset comment referenced how to get to recovery with a broken reset switch.

thanks, the latest update fixed my major issues:

- couldn't boot into recovery mode
- locking at initial screen with "preparing ssd"
- random wifi dropouts

Everything works well now except video playback is either choppy or has no sound.

So far i'm really enjoying this fast little device and and can't wait to see it improve.

So leaving the SD card with the new firmware and selecting Factory reset should enter recovery?

This latest fw woke up my device which was laggy as hell. Also noticed less heating applied so i am keeping it. Do you run the device in 720 or 1080? If i change the resolution to 1080 it becomes a bit slower. 720 works awesome.
Thanks deadhp.

I just updated to 1.65.4 deadhp.1 rooted fw, I guess the bluetooth driver is very bad.
I can connect my Sony Smart Headphone, but the sound is really very choppy and suddenly the connection will drop...
I am considering a rollback...

Hi,
i need help with a problem that i couldn't solve. None of the firmware versions are compatible to the amazon cloud player. If you will play a song from the cloud the song will be downloaded but neven played. If you leave the player he crashes, but after that you can play the downloaded song.
Did anyone have a solution?
Sorry, for my english but i'm not a native speaker :) Thx

any chance of adding some extra modules to kernel?

smb/cifs if not already
hfs/ext2/3/4/
xpad

is this likely to happen?

To add modules i suppouse you need to recompile kernel,or to push the modulename.ko with adb...
I don't know how to do this,as you,im interest to add modules for an external usb wifi dongle... :roll:

The ext2, ext3 and ext4 filesystems are already compiled into the factory kernel. I've used ext4 myself without any issues whatsoever.

Weird. I've used EzyMount (available in Play Store) to mount an ext4 USB-formatted stick attached to my USB-hub.
