Title: Gray screen on game start
Post by: totallyundermind 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 (https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/), choosing the "Overwrite format" option.

If you can, use another SD card.

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.
