    NOTE: We had a few customers asking why the screen backlight is flashing several times every so often. This is a new feature to inform that the battery is at around 10% charge left and to charge it up.

    I have been trying to update to the newest, starting with 4.1 and now this on a new SD card. I get everything set up and working, but I can never get it to consistently boot on my bittboy.
    I have to make multiple attempts before the screen will actually light up and boot. I was also having some issues with emulators constantly kicking me back into the game selection screen on almost any emulator, but on this 4.2 I haven't had it happen yet on Super Mario World.

    It's just frustrating constantly attempting to turn it on. Ending up having to go back to the original stock SD card, also worried to update the SD card that it came with in case I can't get it to work right either.
  3. Fresh install? Or I can only update?

    I'm using CFW 4.1.

    It might be the SD card. If you can, try a different one.

    When Im trying change brightness in main menu, bittboy has just black screen then... Idk why... When I turn off, and turn on again (from switch button), bittboy has black screen again, when comes to main menu. Any fixes ?

    EDIT. I tried once again, and i see that this ROM (imo) has problem with volume and brightness "shifting" way. In old ROM version there is SELECT+ B or A for volume, and +T for brightness. When i want to change brightness in main menu, screen goes to totaly black, but +T up or +T down not changing brightness. I need to change volume or brightness like SELECT+ arrow left or arrow right...

    Hello. I noticed that for the Amiga emu a kick.rom file was missing and needs to be downloaded and placed at ./mnt/.uae4all. Apparently its the bios file.

    UPDATE: i probably installed the wrong bios file because the menu starts but after choosing the rom files and launching the game doesnt get running.(so if the developer can send a good supported bios file, would be appreciated)

    And also as described in the changelog i placed Doom2.wad in the main partition /games/ccdoom directory but games start and quit immediatly so.. chocolat doom mods launcher.
    What needs to be done to get it working?

    UPDATE: it was my mistake i didnt copy corectly but since placing the doom2.wad in ccdoom directory no games are listed anymorr in the chocolat launcher. WHATS WRONG?

    I got the vectrex emu up and running normally with minestorm.

    Thank you
