RE: Correct startup behavior for Recorder v2??

Jrg -

Well, thanks to your prompting, I did get brave and did successfully
flash my Archos tonight - very easy (the instructions online were very
clear). All went well and my power button issue has now been resolved.
It turns on (and stays on) with just a simple 1/2 second or so click of
the 'on' button. Very nice! Thank you,

- Eric

The software needs to flip a bit to "hold power", bypassing the button
you're holding.

To some extent, yes. But I find 3 seconds unusual.

Yes, my bootloader bypasses the button as the very first thing it does.
Maybe get braver?
