Subject: Re: Possible problems with the new Bookmark release
From: ajf (ajf_at_midmaine.com)
Date: 2003-07-19


I had the exact same thing happen on a JBR 20 -- not flashed -- with 1.28
firmware.

I copied the new release with a different name than ajbrec.ajz and rolo-ed
to it. This is my SOP for a new release of anything.

It worked fine, but the NEXT time I booted the unit, still using a stable
but recent non Bookmark build as the default firmware, the screen came up
pitch black, wrong font, all my config settings trashed. I did have a
config file, so no biggie, but still it is a bit disconcerting.
