> Multi-Boot Was OK, But Now It Keeps Rebooting If I Don't Press Button

Recently, I re-flashed Gemini with the new multi-boot firmware.

I set up the booting with the new online tool as follows:

1. Debian

2. Recovery

3. Sailfish

4. Android Rooted


It was working properly until now.

Before if I rebooted and did not press any key or silver button, it booted up into Debian. However, now when I reboot and do not press anything, it just keeps re-booting endlessly.

If I press silver button, it boots to Sailfish.

If I press both Esc key and silver button, it will boot to Android.

So, something got messed up regarding booting to Debian.


Any way to fix this or do I need to re-flash again?

If re-flash, can I just do the Debian partition or ?

Thank you for any help.

Assume that Debian install got messed up somehow, so, decided it best to re-flash Gemini again....

Did the reflash ease your woes?

Thanks!

I find once I get over my frustration with things not working right, I usually take a deep breath and then tell myself, it's better to do the right thing and start fresh, rather than dink around for hours trying to fix something that probably can't get fixed.

Sorry for long sentence, but wanted to express my thought....

Meanwhile, busy re-installing programs in Debian right now.....
