Default YPR0 with LightROM won't go past the penguin...

I installed VanniX's LightROM, rockbox worked, but refused to go to safe mode, to let me put files on it. So, I manually updated the LightROM config file with rockbox's text editor. Since then, the player won't boot, it's stuck at the penguin image.

What can I do ? Is there a way to unbrick the player, a special feature in the ROM?

Thank you in advance...

lovasoa, file contains a warning "# Be careful, you can brick your player!!"

quote from LightROM_4.4_ServiceManual.txt"
Create an empty file in your microSD called "FORMAT.MEDIA0". Reboot the player and wait until it auto-shutdown. Power it on again and all operations should be done."
it will format the internal memory of the player.

Naaa it worked for me many and many times editing from rockbox...moreover you can access safe mode in every occasion I think.
Read the instruction, I guess there is still the shortcut of the back-key or whatever during the startup!

Yes, indeed, but in any case Safe Mode should be reachable...Need to read the guide not really interested in readmes as a developer of R0
