105c modes back to l/m/h/blinkies

in my never ending quest to screw everything up make everything better, I pulled apart my p60 drop in pill I've been using in my convoy c4, and added 6 350mA chips to the existing 8 chips for a total of 14*350= 4,900mA to an xml2-u3-1a on noctigon. I thought everything looked good, put it all back together and now it has stock modes. Low/med/high/strobe/sos. 

 

I mi would really like to only have Low/hi (starting on low of possible) but if I had to I could live with low/med/high. No memory, if possible. 

 

Ive been searching and can't find the thread I saw before, I thought you could change modes with the stars on this driver? I soldered the first star and jumped it over to the rim/ground, but it's still the same modes. Is there anything I can do to get it back to a simple hi/low?

 

 

on the bright side, high mode is up to a whopping 3.4A at the tailcap!! That's the most I've been able to get from a light/driver yet. I swapped to 18Ga silicone wire while I had it apart, the stock wires I could only read up to 2.3~2.4A at the tailcap.

turn on light to low
wait approx 4 sec for flashlight to wink (quick flash)
turn off the light or 1/2 click within a second of that wink

It will toggle the 2 mode group…first group is L>M>H, 2nd group is the same as the first but STROBE/SOS is at the end

Did you do a tail cap spring bypass (solder in a chunk of wire or solder braid) to allow higher current flow?

I tried to switch mode groups, the light doesn't blink on low mode.

 

yea I soldered a piece of de soldering braid in the middle of the spring from the board to the top of the spring.
