About

This page is targeted to collect all the information about creating a way of automatically installing the UBoot-bootloader on the supported boxes. It will be a 2-stage installer and by design it should minimize the risk of bricking a box as good as possible.

Status

Installer

The complete concept is in its initial stages.

UBoot

Currently the LS1 & HG were both tested with UBoot, nobody tested it on a HS but as it is seems to be the same hardware as the HG it is expected to work.

How it should work

TODO: we need to port the concept outlined in the forum to here

Scripts

We need to write some scripts for the firmimg.bin which includes the UBoot binary. This scripts need to check if the enviroment is sane before flashing and if everything was done correctly after flashing.

If you want to help then modify the scripts at the talk-page
