    You held in the format button for around 10 seconds until the memory light turns yellow?

    Yes, guaranteed. I am absolutely positive about that as it is brought up repeatedly in this thread. ~10 second +/- and the card icon flashes yellow for a while. Then turns off.

    But maybe this isn't a big deal. I never use StoryTeller anyway. I think the setting are perfect for what i do with the cam and the videos are good.

    My second Contour, the ContourHD is seen by the ST software, just the tweaked Roam isn't seen anymore.

    Did this mod a couple of months ago and it worked great but how do I turn the audio beeps off? The option to do it in the "tools" section is not there anymore.

    Idea! Help 2014

I felt really stupid for not thinking this.. BTW no need to play Y or N settings of the second DEFAULT txt file just change FW_RTC.txt file's UPDATE coloumns to Y from N and as I said rename your 1.xx firmware to ContourROAM2.bin and put it in to SDROMS root.
    Hi there. I'm really having a hard time downgrading back to Roam 1 Settings. Think I'm following the info above but it isn't working.
    Would anybody be able to show me a video of how to do this please?

    Is there another information about downgrading from the mod Roam1

    Cheers

    FYI, I followed the YouTube video NOT upgrading to the ROAM2 firmware and my ROAM1 did not record in 60fps.

    However, when I updated the firmware to V2.16 and followed Krunk's instructions, VOILA! 60fps at 1280x720. But, someone else might have commented on this, but I'll restate it here: after the unplugging of your ROAM1 from your computer, and pressing your status button, my red light locked on and would not turn off.

    I fixed this by pressing the reset, then format buttons, and then the red light went off and everything was fine after that. I started up the ROAM1 and began filming in 60fps.

    This thread was very helpful. Thanks to all of you who contributed to it with your helpful suggestions/info.

    Cheers!
