Go 950 rev. 855.2884
With Home 2.5, I could backup my device, operate my device, add computer voices, add a car symbol, change my start-up and shut-down pictures, and much more. Then I updated Home 2 to 2.6.2.1586, and now Home 2 tells me that my device won't support those features.

Why? :( Home 2.5 used to support those features, and the old files are still on the Go 720 (rev. 8.302.9738.1) when I could update them. Why can't I update them now? I thought the purpose of an update was to add features, not take them away.
:mad:

You may wish to uninstall and re-install 2.6 and see if the problems are resolved. If not, you may wish to revert to 2.5.

Going Backwards to Go Forwards.

Ye Olde Software (2.5.2.60) works. I de-installed the new software, and it works like it always did.

it just goes to show you: new is not always improved.

I had problems with Home2.6.2.1586 also. It would gobble up 100% CPU, even though it was doing anything. Tried reinstalling it but no different, even 2.6.3.nnnn.
Ended up going back to 2.4 which works fine.
