Undocumented Reflash Functionality (restore registry)

The iLiad has the ability to restore the registry from a CF card.

If you plan on working with the registry of your iLiad, and don't want to loose
any of the existing settings you can do the following:
  1. Install dropbear on your iLiad.
  2. Copy the /mnt/settings/registry folder off of your iLiad (use winscp or scp)
  3. On your CF Card make a x:\images\registry\ folder.
  4. Copy the contents from your registry backup into that folder.
  5. Enter "settings" (without quotes) into x:\config.txt

To restore, use the normal restore procedure.

This is probably not useful for the average user, but if you're a developer testing changes to the registry, it could come in handy.

That's really cool. I have been bothered with having to re-edit registry everytime after reflash.

1 Where can I find dropbear?

2 Copy /mnt/settings/registry to \images\registry?

3. Add the word "settings" after "format"? (I have this word in \config.txt.)

Hello,

ericshliao said me that is possible to follow theses steps for my particular case: http://www.openiliad.com/node/16.

I wonder if you could you send me you registry by e-mail to this address: mossa@wanadoo.es.

Thanks

Oh. Perhaps I cannot do this procedure, because now I cannot install anything from thirdy parts in my iLiad.
