System flush


Hi I know how to d/l it but is there somewhere to tell how to use it and what exactly it does ?

May contain traces of nut
All you do to use it is run it just like a firmware update. What it does is force the standard firmware to rebuild the databases.

Is what it says on the wiki page not sufficient?:
Install as standard firmware update to perform a full system flush and reset. This is designed to assist recovery from crash/reboot loops and to clear everything out after running RMA mode.

Your recordings will not be affected.

NB: This will also clear most CFW package settings.
Maybe it could say "install as per standard firmware..."

To be precise, it reformats the areas of flash used for persistent data like the schedule. There are two of these flash areas and they use the JFFS2 filesystem.

Playing devil's advocate...
Presumably it loads and runs within just a few seconds
Is there a way to know that it has run?
Does it create any output anywhere?
