Considering buying LS Pro and installing Gentoo. However, I don`t see the possibility of bricking the box in the manual you posted here. Is there some dangerous operation? Installing gentoo does not seem to be a problem, in worst case you place the original partitions in place and everything works as before .?? Or is there some flash-burning involved? Does LS Pro have the JTAG included?

Thanx

no there are no flash related operations. only the UBoot bootloader is in the LS pro`s flash, everything else is on the hdd. if you use the debug mode of the firmware updater and uncheck the updating of "BOOT" then the Bootloader does not modified and only the initrd/kernel/hddrootfs gets updated. If anything else besides the bootloader gets messed up you can always fix it by connecting the hdd to your normal workstation. but thats the worst case and i did not have to do this for weeks now.
