I thought update might not work if storage is on USB. Got image of 3.2.1 'thestateofme'. First time it seemed corrupted, so I re-downloaded and tried again. Keeps hanging on boot and complaining it cant find /sda1 storage. It did eventually boot up once, but it took about 3 minutes.

I thought maybe the storage partition had been damaged, went back to 3.2 and its completely fine.

Apparently there's a problem with the firmware when you use USB Storage partition. Tested it yesterday. Results:

Create new card under Ubuntu with 3.2.1 - RPi doesn't boot. Stops at OpenELEC logo.
Create new card under Ubuntu with 3.2.0 and manual copying 3.2.1 files - RPi doesn't boot. Stops at OpenELEC logo.
OpenELEC 3.2.0 internal update to 3.2.1 - Stops at OpenELEC logo, chews something for a bit, takes a few minutes to fully boot (3.2.0 can boot in under 30s). Very unstable and sometimes spits out "can´t find /dev/sda1 bla bla bla..."

Also tried disk=LABEL=Storage and disk=UUID=uuid_value_here. Same problem.

Using only the SD card seems to work a lot better, aldo a lot slower than 3.2.0. Takes well over a minute to boot.
