Hanzon n516 clarification on inkpot install

Hi all,

Please confirm.....reading everything on this has confused me'

Install for the first time inkpot on n516; (have checked hardware and older version of n516)

Q1. which file to use - version 0.2.2 (earliest)or version 20110215(latest)??
Q2. after unzipping i get 4 folders; bootloader, flashimage,reinstall,update - where do i put these folders if at all? The 3 folders; bootloader&reinstall&update all contain the same file .oifw ? Do i need these? where do i put them?


Readme file: How to flash:
1. Connect the device via USB.
2. Push the 'Rotate' button and power on the device.
3. New device will appear in your system, point to this directory for driver. {click to the flashimage file for USB_Boot.exe ?}
4. Run USB_Boot.exe (double click?)
5. Execute commands in the USBboot shell:
> boot 0
> fconfig USBboot.cfg 0
If all is OK, next messages will appear:
USBBoot :> boot 0
Booting No.0 device......UnBooted.....Boot success!
Initing No.0 device......Init Configration success!
USBBoot :> fconfig USBboot.cfg 0
Configing No.0 device....
Init Configration success!
USBBoot :>
6. Execute next commands:
> nerase 0 4096 0 0
> nprog 0 n516-image.bin 0 0 -n
7. When flashing will be completed, (just unplug from pc?) reset(hard reset-pin in reset button?) the device. It should boot to new firmware. If flashing was successful, screen should flash some times and bootsplash will be displayed.

Q3 what do i do with those files/folders (unzipped/unpacked) left on my pc(4 folders; bootloader, flashimage,reinstall,update), just delete them, presumably, n516 has what it needs to run??

Thanx for any help or assistance......getting bits and pieces of info here and there have confused me as to the correct steps for a first time install.

I'd take the latest daily build.

You need flashimage.zip only: http://openinkpot.org/pub/daily/oi-h...flashimage.zip

{click to the flashimage file for USB_Boot.exe ?}
Usb_Boot_Driver.inf

(just unplug from pc?)
yes

Quote:
(hard reset-pin in reset button?)
yes
