[SOLVED] HxC SD reports SRAM test fail ;-(

Postby wongck » Sun Aug 21, 2016 1:25 am

On startup it reports SRAM test failed and it seems not to write (rename/creation etc) on to the HFE file.
However, it does read the HFE files.

Anyway to make it write without the SRAM stuff ?

Well they all say RTFM.... and truly did not. :( :oops:
The v1.8.x firmware needs this SRAM to write to the SD card.
Mine was the older HxC that does not have the needed SRAM, so I cannot use firmware above v1.7.x.
Downgrading the firmware to v1.7.x makes it write into the SD card again. :D

Should have RTFM in the first place.... in this case the release notes. :oops:

Just in case someone encounter this... :megaphone:
