Thanks for the reply Dan. I will try discharging and recharging and then post the results. 

The package came as some sort of modified ROM update I think. 

Regarding ROM updates, has there been a fix for date resetting to 2008 upon discharging in the Y2K10 patch? 

Also for some weird reason I'm getting a blank slip when trying to schedule anything through "Assist"
