i've seeen this too, even when it isn't after RLDs. i turn on my FMR and the battery says it's at
some stupid low percent (like 7). the best way to test is to go to debug>view battery>down and
look at the voltage (for me it was 3.3V or so, definitely not at 7%). theres a lot of weird
problems that go along with RLDs, and at the moment, not a whole lot to do about them.

the latest. just download the ucl file and rocks (or the full zip) after you do the initial flash
and play the ucl file.
