It looks as if you are right. The code is not in the release that I had
uploaded to the ftp server. In the meanwhile I have purchased a Phantom C6,
which is essentially the same as the Phantom 636cx, so I can test it myself.

I have included code to solve the mirror problem for all modes (before it
was only solved for color mode, and then not uploaded to the ftp server).

I am also *trying* to address the problem of the vertical stripes, which
in any case requires some major changes. That is why I do not have
a working backend at the moment, which is newer than the 161099 release, but
I will make an announcement, when it is working again.
