If it's no longer in System>Display Settings>Configure Menu then Good Luck!

I have the same problem, others also have it.
Check out those messages: There's a few thing you can try. (Below)
I tried them all without any success.
Please let me know if you found a solution.

I know a simple question, but I want to verify.... you did install the latest firmware correct? Did you go through the Recovery Mode and select the Reload Firmware option to erase the currently installed firmware first before installing the new/latest version?

Yeah, it won't state to do that. That is the Recovery Mode method of doing it. It will erase the currently installed firmware in case it is corrupted or the cause the problem. That way you can install a fresh copy with no existing problem carrying over.

I can't find the original firmware anywhere... fm radio still refuses to even show itself on my list and yes I have looked at the options.

You don't need the original firmware to do this. Go through Recovery Mode so that the current firmware gets wiped out and then when it prompts you, connect to the computer and execute the latest firmware to load. If you want to try an older firmware, you can try downloading them from here.
