Turning the device on while holding down the home key and actuating the power key will trigger a boot from the SD card.

The card needs to be specially formatted with a kernel placed at a particular offset for this to work.

The kernel and bootloader source haven't been released yet - it'll happen soon.

But FWIW, booting from the SD card is a real pain. If you want to hack, just change the startup scripts on mmcblk0p1.
