It's heavily patched Acer ICS bootloader with stubs from both u-boot and grub. V5 - V8 is "dual boot", V9 is "multi boot", simply support for EXT4FS in it.

sounds like corrupted -fix it up with real format or babsector etc. then maybe switch to 1.7.3 recovery
reinstall your rom , gapps then you can restore your backup

again flash touch recovery 1.8.1 and now i have bootloader v9 - thor touch recovery 1.8.1
and Important and Interesting point is my internal sd card back & show with file manager :mrgreen:

No I got it but you are saying that 1.8.1 will not flash the v9 bootloader
If you read my reply carefully I am saying that it will
I just did it twice 2 different v9 versions that I have both flashed and work fine
might just have been a bad flash on your end but the statement that you are sure it can't be done is not correct.

Wondering if I could get the V9 zip from anyone. The download link seems to be down...

Also many thanks to the devs (Thor, Skrilax, Digetx and anyone else i may have forgot) :-)
