WARNING: Reverting to Custom v27 from v28 will Freeze Nav System!!!

WARNING: Reverting to Custom v27 from v28 will Freeze Nav System!!!

I've loaded v28 from a custom v27 with no issues...

Problem:
Created a custom v28 with a new splash screen with success and in order to load it I had to downgrade to a lower version. I reverted back to a custom v27 and the Nav system just froze and CD got stuck!

How to fix it (steps):
***************
Stuck CD - moved the drive from side-to-side(shake) and successfully ejected the CD after pressing the eject button.

Reloaded v28 to stabilize the system and was back to a working v28 Nav system.

Downgraded to a known and official v26 Nav OS.

Then Upgraded to custom v28 Nav OS with success.
***************

No idea why the system freezes when reverting back to custom v27 from v28.

So if you plan on loading a custom v28, do it while you're still at a lower version to avoid the steps of needing to downgrade...

Hope this helps.

FYI ... you know you don't need to keep downgrading to upgrade again. Especially useful for folks that don't want their USA mode NAV switching to Euro or no region.

You can create your own v28.01 ... 28.10 versions if you want ...

You just need to edit sw_rel.tbl and lng_rel.tbl files with a HEX editor. Take a look a the NAVTWEAK thread ... I posted info on how to do this.

Cool, thanks for the tip! This makes it easier to maintain the same Nav OS base with different configs... no need to downgrade anymore...
