I believe someone posted that they tried at a lower firmware version, but a quick scan of this thread did not lead me to that. There was another thread going on this topic too which is linked in this one. Perhaps they mentioned specifically downgrading the firmware. edit: found in the Pocket SNES 7.0 thread "Posted 11 January 2011 - 05:43 PM downgrade to 1.2.1 doesnt help. tried 6.5 and the new version...same problem. freeze in the menu or even before"
