Let Start!!

The first thing you need to do is yes of course backing up your controller!

The secondt thing you need to do is rebooting the controller and when its booting up you need to press any key example enter enter enter Smiley Happy

Until you get in the cpboot like this:

       Memory test: Physical 0x10000000 - 0x20000000 - quick test
       PASS

 As you see DRAM  says its 512mb

 

When you are in the cpboot you need to issue the next command: eye_finder

Like this:

cpboot> eye_finder
Erasing #
Erased 1 sectors
Writing ################
cpboot> 

 After this you need to turn off or disconnect the controller

Take the

 

Now open the wireless controller to change the Memory, which is located where the red box is

You take that memory off and put the memory you bough in that slot.

 

Now you close the Wireless controller  and turn it on again and let the normal booting goes...

 

You will see this
