    A particularly strong case of someone not checking before publishing. Copy and paste fubar? I'm talking particularly about this line:

    "ROM: 512 MB / RAM: 256 MB ROM"

    So the RAM is read only then? :-)



  • At least it's not write-only!


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

     <Pedant> That's not a proper ROM anyway, it's going to be flash memory and you can MOST CERTAINLY write to it even in user mode.
