    when selecting the game in the menu, hold select and press left or right to move the save type to 2m.

    The game works just fine with flash 2mbit savetype, as has already been discussed and confirmed by many people in earlier threads (read the forum), If its not working for you, something else isn't right with either your rom or your firmware.

    The game will also run (for a while) using the flash 4mbit savetype but is prone to 'lose' it after a brief time

    I lost my flash 4mbit save around campaign mission 7, after 2 days use. I still have my flash 2mbit save at campaign mission 13 after a week + of use.

    As Flash 2M it won't delete itself; Flash 4M itself is the problem. For some reason (perhaps having to save a different Flash-based save?) N-Cards and clones will almost randomly delete Flash 4M save files; I was hoping they'd fixed that along with the FF4 fix.
