I may have missed the original problem reported, but I have had an
intermittment problem whereby I get a repeated soft clicking noise,
sometimes left speaker, sometimes right, when playing WAV files. It
certainly was not always there, and seem to come in with some of the more
recent firmwares. If this is what you think you have fixed, I will try the
latest nightly and give it a go.

Regards,
Jonathan

The nightly release now has a new firmware rev which fixes the audio
clicking problem that was reported a couple days ago. I take back what
I said in that thread about the bug, it was not a wireless problem or a
hardware problem but a memory timing glitch which has now been fixed in
software. This fix may also eliminate a couple of crashing incidents
that were reported.

Thanks Matthew for taking the time to test this.

That is exactly the behavior that this update is hoped to fix.
