Simple silly "bootloader" (sillyboot)
« on: March 20, 2012, 06:55:38 pm »
In order to boot different OS (apart from Harmattan), you need some "bootloader".
Simple silly bootloader aka sillyboot, that allow you to choose whether to start alternative OS or not (by pressing Volume Up key).

ONLY FOR EXPERIENCED USERS! NO WARRANTY!
THERE IS VERY HIGH RISC OF GETTING BRICK!


Short HOWTO:
1. Put the file attached to the device.
2. Execute following command as root (I suggest to use SSH connection over USB):
Code: [Select]
tar xjvf /home/user/MyDokumentz/sillyboot.tar.bz2 -C /
3. Write full howto for not so experienced hackers;)

помогите пожалуйста, после ввода в терминале
tar xjvf /home/user/MyDokumentz/sillyboot.tar.bz2 -C /
пишет
sbin/preinit
can't remove old file sbin/preinit: Permission denied

права суперпользователя получил командой devel-su

Terminal says:

sbin/preinit
bin/evkey

is that correct?

Anyway, i get the message on reboot so I guess it works :)
