ok, @Agent10.7, back one vs front/side one typically refers to Desktop machines where USB ports are on the motherboard, VS the ones on the front of the case which is not straight soldered. bc of the wires there is a little attenuation and its finicky. most of use are now in laptops (i hope) so that should be fine... on that note, if you have a USB hub plugged in for "ease of access" now is the time to NOT use it... or a USB extension... remove all variables...
now RSD lite i have had lots of problems with... it has not worked right for me since i moved on from the D1... that's probably my fault, given all the Beta ware i have on my laptop(s), trying to get one to function properly is always an adventure. someone else chime in, but does RSDLite work better on XP than on vista or win7? i have Vista, and i think xp is the last machine i got it to succeed on.
again @ rfwright16; bob, you have to get it back to the out-of-the-box settings to make it past the OTA. if its with RSD lite, go for it. again you are writting the OS bit by bit, so super glue that usb in if you have to! dumb dog knocks it off a table mid-write, and an OTA fail will be the least of your problems. :'( im going to PM JKLiving92, and see if he has any input.
by the way, has anyone tried the cdt fix.exe yet??
