RE: [Solved] 50g port 2 (FLASH) memory. Not 766 kb
Just for future reference (for people digging for a solution in the future), this is perfectly normal after installing a custom ROM (newRPL or any other). I should make it clear in the download page of the project how to revert back to stock so people don't trip on this.

newRPL uses *ALL* the ROM (2MB), while the stock firmware uses only 1.3 MB and leaves 768k for the user banks (Port 2).
When you flash newRPL you will overwrite your user banks, hence I always recommend doing a backup including anything you have in Port 2.
To restore stock firmware, you need to extract and flash the special ROM file inside the "2MB", which is nothing but a stock ROM with correctly formatted, empty user banks added at the end. Flashing this version will reset your Port 2 banks to factory condition, while flashing a standard stock ROM will leave chunks of newRPL on your user flash banks, causing the system to discard the banks affected and display less available memory.
