Do you mean that you succeeeded in changing the mode and it didn't help,
or that you couldn't change the mode ?

Try giving the extra option "verbose=1" when you load the backpack driver
and then report the relevant messages from the ALT-F4 screen.

Show me the ALT-F4 messages, and I'll tell you the correct syntax for
changing the mode, if necessary.
