Hmm are there any benefits to booting from an sd card? I think I would
prefer not to if possible.
Where do you guys get your snapshots? I think I would like to just reflash
the openmoko. These are the steps I originally took... Does anyone know if I
am actually doing it right?
1. download images from
2. flashing kernel:
# sudo su
# ./dfu-util -a kernel -d 0x1457:0x5119 -R -D
3. flashing rfs
# sudo ./dfu-util -a 5 -d 0x1457:0x5119 -R -D
I noticed that on this, the time is never right, could it be because of the
images I got? Where can get the correct images if this is the case?
Also, where do people get their ipkg feeds? Like, what sources are listed in
your /etc/ipkg.conf and /etc/ipkg/*.conf files?
Setting up is always the hardest part... Thanks in advance!
