I had applied this fw sh20_20110302_K_PD_inx7e_eng_6410pop to my White PD Novel, sometime in the past. Now the WIFI has stopped working, meaning it turns on but none seem to be in range. It used to work earlier but was always kind of flaky.
My 8GB SD card, FAT32 formatted and inserted using an adapter many times shows up an unmounted. Did a fix errors on it using PC and then mounted correctly. So flaky there as well.
The keyboard seems to be less responsive and it takes lot of time to boot up.
Has anybody with this fw seen these issues?
Also, what is the next logical fw which I can install?
I am too confused by reading many threads here and do not know which one to choose. Can someone help me choose a better stable fw than this? Google apps support would be great.
Have you tried a manual re-set via the pinhole at the top of the Novel?
Or a factory data re-set [be sure to back up data/apps first] via menu/settings/privacy?
If a reset does not help, you could try flashing the stock FW again.
If you do not have a copy of your FW, there are mirrors posted in this thread: Link Here
As far as any alterations to your device, any choices you make are yours to live with.
That being said, I would suggest you know how to install FW Link Here
and try kewlguy's alternate [stock based] FW: Link Here
If you do try his FW, you won't have to worry about a flash loop, since this is not downgrading.
