@Dwyloc

Really sad for your problems, but most of the updates were specifically said to be for e.g. Flex or both models. IF updates was for high integrated ITX boards and cause serious bugs, please writte to Acube, hope soon it will be resolved with bit more update of an update!

Are you sure you haven't installed the update for the Sam Flex instead?

@klx300r

Your Sam broke up this "distant relationship" with my Sam



But anyway, It's good we get more Sams into the OS4 secondhand market...

Hope you get your X1000 pretty soon

I've done a few tests and this gives a further 3-4% overall speedup in DvPlayer. Well done ACube

@ACube
Loving all the recent performance improvement updates for the SAM440, thanks!

@Dwyloc
Hmm, isn't the 667 the one which had a caveat for a previous update? There must be something different about these - or maybe this new U-Boot only works with/without that update.

Acube message:

This ISO not work here with mu sharkoon USB to 2->PS2 (mouse and keyboard).

- Not possible to use the return key to launch the update.

- After the time or the return key, the update continue and must use the space for launching the update. Space key not work also.


This is the only problem I have with the Uboot, all work fine usually and even choosing AOS4 or Debian work fine everyday.

It's just with an update ISO, this problem came. That look like that something is missing on the Updats ISOS each time.

Will use a USB keyboard from the job next week for the update..


Now I use an USB mouse and the keyboard only on the sharkoon and the same
problem.

EDIT 10:50AM:

Another user confirm me that he can't arrive to make updates with his SAM and his PS2 keyboard. Now he arrive with the last by pushing return and space at the same time but that not work for me

No that was the flex 800 I think all the previous updates have just worked on the 667MHz mini-itx boards.
