    When I boot the M3 Sakura, it crashes sometimes...
    Specifically, it crashes when the word "M3 Sakura" appears
    in the screen....

    Sometimes it can be solved by holding "A" and selecting again M3 Sakura OS

    But when I updated to version 1.40, M3 Sakura always crashes/hang when the word
    "M3 Sakura" appears with the pink background where cherry blossoms are falling

    I tried reformatting the SD card and placing again the SYSTEM File... but still nothing happens
    I tried to revert to version 1.35 but it still crashes at the same point

    The M3 Touchpod works perfectly fine...

    Maybe my M3 Flashcard is the real problem?

    BTW I'm using a M3 Real(US) Card

    1.40 might not be stable, try downgrading. Also it's Touchpod not Touchpad, for your health [​IMG]

    I already tried downgrading but I am still experiencing the same problem...

    There.. I corrected the spelling....

    I guess the only solution is to buy another M3 Real....

    Dude don't say that yet, there are other things. It might be your actual microSD that is causing the problem, and what did you format the microSD card as?

    FAT32

    Sorry my bad, it doesn't crash when the word M3 Sakura appears
    but it crashes when the first Cherry Blossom is about to fall

    I'll try reformatting the card again and only put the SYSTEM Folder...
    Perhaps it will work....

    EDIT: It booted successfully when I only placed the system folder....
    Perhaps a file in the card is causing the crash....

    Perhaps...maybe its time for a reformat.

    I recommend reformatting the card with the Panasonic SD Formatter.

    I agree. during the m3 sakura logo its doing the disk check, maybe there is a corruption that is causing the disk check to hang.
