This time the calculator started nicely just after the update, perhaps because my previous rom was already a newRPL file?
I saw several variables in RAM that the firmware uses to interact with the bootloader. Perhaps the stock rom leaves something behind that the bootloader clears on the second reset.

I didn't get a chance to test this but this is a real bug I need to investigate and fix.

If I want a reasonable contrast to see the variable names, I have to set the contrast (ON +, ON -) to make these menus almost "white". I think this could work (although I have tested this new version only under artificial lightning), but the alpha indicator is then barely visible.

Like other members, I have to read the docs now.
I agree it's almost white now. I'm still experimenting with the shades. It currently uses a 6 (in a 0 to 15, where 15 is black). I tried a darker grey (8) but didn't like the contrast. Perhaps it should be black on white rather than grey.
