Subject: My Possessed FMR
From: Rocker (rocker_at_shaw.ca)
Hello to all you happy and maybe not so happy FMR owners. Several months
back I posted a note advising that my FMR had died. NO clicking noise when
pressing on. NO back light. No USB. All that was showing was the green
light. Green light on while charger was plugged in. Green light while
charger was unplugged. Green light for ever! (smile)
Well, just for fun I pulled it out of the junk bin and pressed the on
button. SHAZAM! ! It fired up! ! The battery even still had a 62% charge?
I turned it off and expected the worst but it fired up again. I decided to
flash the latest daily build and wow: it fired up faster then ever.
My question is: I never had the FMR flashed in the past. Now that I have
flashed it, will I experience more stability in operation? Does the flash
content circumvent circuitry that might fix my original problem?? I can't
figure out this freaking thing man!
So go dig out your old dead FMr units and for fun press the on button. You
never know, it might just fire up too!
