Try formatting the microSD/SD card, then copy the OS files, then copy the roms.
Worked for me.

This happens for me (not 100% of the time) but OFTEN - only if I already loaded up the SD card with stuff and then after playing some games if I take the SD card out of the Everdrive and pop it into my machine (MAC) and add/delete/modify anything THEN this crash/hang on OS Init happens.

But as previously posted if I just reformat the card and copy a clean OS folder & Romset, it's totally good again.

I just had this exact same issue. I had only just updated the OS to 1.5. Appears the card needs a format and a reinstall of the OS and ROMS each time

Already explaned source of this problem here: http://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=5818.msg45636#msg45636
May be MAC users has more problem than windows users. In wors case sd card should be formatted for update. Also may try this:
1)Rename old edfc folder
2)Copy some large file to fill fragmented area of disk (10-20MB should be enough)
3)copy new edfc folder
4)Delete old edfc folder and those large file
