    Hello all,
    I updated to the new 3.4 OS for my G6 DS Real. When I try to browse files, I can list folders OK, but as soon as It hits the first homebrew-non-folder icon the whole thing locks up.

    Any ideas?

    I click on 'My Card'. I am then presented with a list of Folders on the card. The folders are at the top of the list. As I scroll down, as soon as I hit the 1st item that is not a folder. The unit locks up.

    Alright I scroll down the list couple times and I didn't encounter any freezing. Might want to format it and reinstall the firmware. Video format will depend on the converter as well. From 3.3 firmware and up saves are name .sav instead of .0. To convert you will need to convert then replace the .0 file with the .sav file.

    I reformatted the card and added the 3.4 os back in. With the same result.

    When I delete 3.4 and use the old OS, it works fine, video, no freezing, etc.

    I find 3.2 is the best firmware for G6 Real the 3.3 and 3.4 messes up game saves, don't know about other things.

    Does 3.4 change the format of the saves or does it just name them .sav? I went from 3.3 to 3.4 and when I loaded a game, it found no saves, and upon checking the card, the .0 was still there, just corrupted. Other games saves were fine (I went back to 3.3)

    Anyone who have issue with the saves please go back to previously firmware.
