Really how much confusion could there be? Try this one ...
One other option is to have the splashpage for those single boot selection open with a default selection number already present. The idea is merely to assist in making it obvious.

Just an idea. Not needing a reply.

From android phone, in usb settings always connect and mount as storage. Connect to your pc and copy over your EmSee-Tahr directory onto the storage (sdb1 - sdc1 whatever mounted phone), next run grub4dos, then edit menu.lst on phone storage, now run gparted and select the storage partition and get information, note the uuid and make sure it is the same in menu.lst. Close those. Finally check that the vmlinuz and initrd.gz copied over fully, check the sizes against those on pc harddrive. Next reboot and select boot menu, boot from the phone storage device ennumerated in the boot menu!

To install proprietary Nvidia driver follow this guide. Assumes you already have a savefile.

First get your nvidia graphics model chip. I did 'lspci' in term and found Geforce 315M

next go to nvidia website and use their search tool.
http://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk

Download the file, note the path a file name (I renamed the file to NVIDIA.run) and make executable.

Load your kernel sources sfs module

Load your devx module

Exit to prompt

At the command line prompt type
./root/Downloads/NVIDIA.run
or whatever the path is for your file.

Accept all the offers to blacklist the nouveau driver. May need to reboot here and follow previous steps, as the nvidia driver will not install if nouveau driver is anywhere in sight!

The modules will compile and then install. DO NOT ACCEPT the offer to create xorg.conf do it manually, in device card0 section change driver to nvidia. Or use xorgwizard.

Check hardinfo > display to confirm nvidia driver in use. But when X starts the nvidia splash screen is displayed.

This is what I did anyway. So if you have troubles with it, I cannot help more than this guide. I also tried on fatdog but it didn't work, having installed kernel 4.1.3-EmSee-64 . Probably due to the fact that the kernel was compiled with a different gcc version than is in the devx.

Thanks @Stemsee for this guide. I will try it.

Question
    Was this done using EmSee-Tahr's pristine kernel or with your latest when you setup nVidia?
Thanks

Your question seems irrelevant ... all these kernels were built with the same devx (gcc), that is the important variable.

So my Tahr-6.0.3 is exactly the way I like it. With a truly formidable set of up-to-date apps. There is one problem which needs solving. The mimetypes have been set, and set-run-action is set, but is not effective, this opens instead, followed by the permissions setter. How to iron that out?

Would a remaster of your EmSee-Tahr 603 be available soon? I checked your opening post and did not see it. I would be interested.

And, does it have your upgrades on Slocate included? Nice work.

Thanks in advance.

I had never seen that message before, but it hints at a solution. What happens if you
Code:
chmod 775 /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/MIME-types/text_plain
and reboot?

1) What if you chmod and don't reboot?

2) If you then reboot, are the file permissions still 755 or did they revert to 777? That would indicate something in the boot process changed the file.

If (1) fixed the problem, try putting chmod in a ~/Startup folder executable script and reboot. Does 755 hold?
