I’ll look into how I can put them on SD. My internet was really slow and up and down last night.
Not to ruin your plans but there are limitations. The new UI introduced in 2.0.8 cannot run off the SD card due to network issues. The controller has a hard time serving 10-12 simultaneously requested files (css, js, images, etc). As a result, you will have to use the older UI and 2.0.8 will be the last firmware capable of supporting it.
With this said, I understand the recent firmware introduced bugs but ideally this won’t happen again. This firmware had several moving parts but going forward things will be a lot smoother.
I may be one of few, but I still want to control what happens on my devices locally.
The thing is, you never lose control. The UI is like an app on the App Store. It is subject to change. Just like Facebook and every major website/app. The UI/UX adapts to usage patterns and improves over time. I don’t see how this improvement can be a bad thing. Now, if you want to argue from a poor connection perspective I understand and offer the “older” UI for now.
