How to tell if you’re actually booting from the SD card
Are you actually booting from your SD card? You can find this out by checking the Diagnostics tab in webtop2sd, under “Currently mounted webtops”. If mmcblk1p12 [or similar? -JD] isn’t listed, you’re not booted from your SD card. If this is the case, report what ROM you’re running from.
