OK, so I guess it's not working then...
I'll see whether I made a mistake somewhere.


EDIT: The log says the integrity check on the app file failed...

Did you rename the md5 file to app.image.gz.md5?

Here is what I did.

1. Renamed files per instructions
2. Copied to compact flash
3. Extracted files on compact flash
4. Attempted to reflash per normal process (power on with ids button held down)

Results: Screen flashes from normal boot process to blank screen and then reverts to normal boot process and completes normally. Logfile indicates: Nothing to do: reboot

Just curious

Are iRex going to be involved in helping with this continuation of the codework for their product?

Are there any plans to move to a new linux Kernel which probably has better powersaving features? *edit* found the answer to this in the roadmap.

OK, I can't get it to flash.
If I add a config.txt file in the root folder then it at least tries but fails because of the integrity check, and if I do it without the config.txt then it just says "nothing to do" and reboots.

Over to you devs...^^

Yep, I'm seeing the exact same behavior

Just trying the reflash,


There are a few things you need to do to make the reflash work.....


Rename app.image.21300.beta1.ext2.gz as app.image.gz

Rename app.image.21300.beta1.ext2.gz.md5 as app.image.gz.md5

Change the cotents of app.image.gz.md5 to read

2f9109b6ef96c1813826c095cffdfa57 app.image.gz

It will flash OK however then goes into a reboot loop so the images are not correct....

I have to withdraw my offer. I have lent the iLiad to my fiancée (who lives 1000+ km away from me) on a temporary basis but it has become a "definitive loan". I don't own an iLiad anymore! Damn!

Sorry for that. I wish the community a bright e-ink future.

Ha! I was in a similar situation, but I can visit regularly, so I still have access although it's spotty.

If you're really interested in developing the ipkg utility (I had you in mind when I put that on the roadmap), you might ask Adam for a dev machine from OpenIliad. I don't know how many machines he's committed at the moment, but you could ask if you have the time and interest...

It includes:
  • Integrated FBReader
  • Registry support for FBReader and Shell scripts
  • Matchbox keyboard
  • Dropbear
....[/LIST]
So, is this one working and ready to try, or should I wait for a new version before I flash for the first time?

Also, is the speed of the FBReader comparable to the speed of the reader in the stock iLiad?

Wait until the official release. The one in that post didn't work correctly.

I'll have both my iLiad and a little time on Tuesday, so I'll be working on this a little bit then.
