I wouldn't be too fussy about it, it's not exactly a high end piece of hi-fi equipment we're talking about here.

I believe the majority of us did choose to avoid 3.5/3.9. I have no doubt that 3.1.4 is more popular.

What a joke, having to install all those hacks just to make the OS usable. I don't understand why you guys put yourselves through the pain.

I decided to delete my post as a previous post suggests that it is not a capacitor issue. Could still be worth checking out though. Short it out and see if the symptoms change.
