    - create card with two partitions
    - swap partitions

    Can you describe how this works?
    I assume the purpose is to allow autobooting from a small FAT 16 partition while still allowing use of high capacity cards with a FAT 32 partition for image storage.   
    Does it require a lot of user intervention or can the camera be auto-booted and partitions swapped automatically?
    (My A650 is presently out of my hands for the  the "light leak" recall)

    PS.FIR is missing in a 33 version I've downloaded. Should I use the same PS.FIR from the 31 build ?

    Sorry for the stupid question.

    For DryOS-based cameras this file is useless.

    I have a 720 IS, so I make SD bootable, copy just DISKBOOT.BIN , lock SD and power on ?

    I've got confused because in allbest-a720-100c-31.zip there was a PS.FIR

    Thanks a lot.

    if your SD card was made bootable before, you can only copy the DISKBOOT.BIN and lock the card. You don't need PS.FIR anymore

    Ok. thanks. I'll try it as soon as I get home.

    Funny thing that of locking the SD to make it bootable (beside writing the first sector) and that you can write on it anyway.

    Funny world anyway.
