    Maybe it defaulted back to auto for you? I just restarted the P3 and I do have it so it couldn't have been eliminated if 2 of us have it.

    Would deleting the app and installing the new version cause one to lose the 32 channels?

    I believe it would. Updating might not. When you delete you remove all "documents." The hack is in the documents folder.

    If you're going to post results in this thread - please post if you're on Android/IOS, version, etc.

    Stupidly and without thinking it through, I deleted the app and reinstalled it and lost the 32, IOS here.

    Have you tried copying the "hack" file back into your doc folder and seeing if it worked? I don't see why it wouldn't - unless DJI closed the loophole.

    Yes, the hack works on both Android and iOS platforms still. I covered this a week ago. You SHOULD have deleted you DJI folder prior to installing the new APP. Doing this obviously deleted the hacked config file, so it has to be re-applied.
