Gray screen on game start
« on: June 15, 2019, 05:01 AM »
I just got a few Everdrives for various systems and was able to get them all to work except for the N8.  At first when I put the newest version of the OS on to it it would just hang on the os init screen.  I tried formatting again and it didn't help, but then I tried an older version of the OS and that did the trick.  Unfortunately now when I select a game it just goes to a solid gray screen (rarely a black one) and freezes.  What can I try to fix this?  Thank you for reading this.

Do you have an original Everdrive?
As far as I know the chinese clones work with the old OS only.

You can also try formatting your SD card using the SD card association tool, choosing the "Overwrite format" option.

If you can, use another SD card.
And so I go fast.

I got the N8 from going to the krikzz site and clicking the amazon link, so I think it's the original.  I tried using the formatting tool you linked and the problem persisted.  What kind of SD card should I get, is there any that always works?

It was the sd card, a wii branded 1 GB card formatted to FAT16 worked.  Thank you for your help.
