    [​IMG] iSmart premium 1.02 kernel 11th October 2010
    Game fixes and a serious bug squashed
    [​IMG]

    The iSmart team have released an update that fixes several games and fixes a bug that could cause bricking of the iSmart if you ran a large rom on a cart with small cluster sizes (link to technical explanation at the end of the post). The old versions of the kernel have also been replaced on filetrip in light of this bug. Equally the bundled firmware update is the same as the one from the pokemon fixes back in September- it was mainly included to make sure everybody has the current one.

    Alongside this the team updated the SVN (for those that missed it the iSmart team went open source) and a couple of days back the team released tools to allow you to skin the menus. Links at the end of the post.
    There is also some other news to come but it has been requested we hold back for final versions.

    Of course! I'm here anytime if someone needs me. I've sort of gotten into the trade of writing about something when a new item of interest comes out. My only real goal in this is to help out the community with an informed opinion about whether or not something is good. I know I've received a fair share of emails from random people about decisions and some praise about my reviews being good. I could care less if I get free things, it's just an added bonus to the job. [​IMG]

    EDIT: WTF 1500 posts already?! [​IMG]
