All those problems with "OS init" freeze happens due mapper files fragmentation. Cartridge supports ROM files fragmentation, but system files in EDFC folder should be not fragmented. To avoid fragmentation you should delete all files inside of EDFC folder (may be except save folder) and then copy new files. Copying of new files over old files usually results to fragmentation (at least this is true for windows machines). Also i recomend to use biggest possible allocation unit size during sd formatting (32KB). This reduce possibility of fragmentation and make everdrive disk access work faster. I follow this simple rules and never had any problems after OS files update

I always delete the EDFC folder (except save folder) before updating the OS, but I still got the "OS Init..." freeze bug with os v15 whenever I press the reset button, and the N8 is set to "reset to menu". It's not a big problem, the menu loads like normal when turning the system off and on again.
Maybe I should reformat the card?

You have to reformat for OS v15.
I had the same problems and after reformat like Krikzz's told us, it runs perfectly again!

Maybe you should make it clear in the OS Update section?? Maybe About_OS_Init.txt ??

Hi,

Just confirm that after formatting SD OS V15 is working without OS Init bug.

Best regards

I have the OS init bug i think. I don't know is it bug or not. But it was not happening on OS 13. I tried 15. Now it freezes on os init. When i hit reset then the os init will hang but when i press power button then it loads normally. Also when im on games menu and press reset, it resets normally. But when in game then it freezes to os init or blank screen.

you need defragment your sd
newer OS does not have extra memory to read fragment files

So first it started with light gun games not working properly. So I reformatted my Sd card, first in fat32 32kb. I added OS v15 and it would load. However, as soon as I put ANY game onto the SD CARD and try to load it into the Everdrive, it freezes on OS init. I then tried formatting fat 32 64kb. Same thing. OS v15 would load with not games on it. As soon as I add games, OS init freeze. Any ideas? I've read pretty much everything posted regarding it and nothing works as soon as I add games.

Is it possible to get more than 256 files in a directory? Can you increase to 512 or more?

No. Not enough memory and too slow cpu
