I have a Odys Iron and wanted to switch to something better than the preinstalled OS, so i installed Odys IRON – CM10.1 Edition. It works fine and i want to stay with it. My problem: Regardless what i change (moving/deleting icons, connect to my wlan by giving it the correct password (which works for that session) or changing any other settings) - anything is lost when i reboot or shutdown and start the device again. It is completely "new" after any reboot/restart. What could be wrong ?
THANKS for any help... I am a newbie with a lot of linux experience on normal Desktops/Notebooks but Android is a new thing for me...

User patition is not formatted properly. Reboot into recovery and perform a factory reset.

Thanks for the fast reply ! It works ! Thank you very much Oma !!!

 

It is beyond my understanding why this happend or is necessary, because i only followed the instructions given... probably this is a little thing you should include in the docs for the newbies, right ?

 

Maybe someone else will have this problem, so i thought it could be helpful to describe the procedure for all lame newbies like me:

 

Go to Settings, then click "Backup & reset", then click "Factory data reset". Read the information about the procedure and then click "Reset tablet".

When recovery opens: look for option "perform a factory reset",  use + and - (Volume buttons) to select and the on/off button to select.

 

German: Auf Einstellungen gehen, dann:

Sichern und zurücksetzen wählen - dann: "Auf Werkszustand zurück" anwählen, Infos durchlesen und "Tablet zurücksetzen" anwählen... 

Sobald das Recovery-Menu sich öffnet im Menu nach "factory reset" suchen und mit den + und - Tasten (Lautstärkereglung) anwählen und mit der An/Aus-Taste auswählen.

Schön, wenn es jetzt geht. Es kann schon mal vorkommen, daß da eine defekte Stelle auf dem NAND ist und die Formatierung deswegen nicht richtig fuktioniert hat. Diese Fälle sind aber eher selten - trotz Chinaqualität ;-)
