New OS

Post by PierreMengisen »

Just a note about the last OS: In the menus the "ON" key is often used to return. So I don't think it's wise to set the "ON" key to completely erase the plugged modules. I've been caught several times already. Couldn't we switch "Plug" and "ClrAM"?

Otherwise all is well and bravo for the "CST" which is excellent!

Huh. I thought I was the only one unloading ROMs with the ON key!

The [ON] key is no longer used in the 41X UI to exit any screens or functions, that was a sloppy holdover from the 42S and has been corrected.

Also, there is a confirmation before wiping, so you should not actually lose anything, but please holler if that happened.

I too from muscle memory (didn’t read the update) and now I cannot exit the

MANAGE MODULES in FLASH

How does one exit the that menu now; as the ENTER key takes me to the

Module info.


I am hollering as I may have inadvertently erased without reading the screen.

The only way out is to reset, memory lost. But I still get caught in the exit loop as described above.

The backspace key allows you to back out of pages.

In the Active Modules (ENTER| to confirm)

Screen it states

“Press (ENTER) to abandon changes, or [EXIT] to return to Active Modules.

There is no EXIT choice.

Asked and answered, disregard the previous post. Found the EXIT soft key. Which comes up as you cycle through the menu pages.

Early in the manual it definitely explains that the Back-arrow key is used to exit menus and modes, etc.

And if it doesn't, it soon will.. :shock:
