A pleasant surprise.
Wednesday, 7. May 2008
I just upgraded a N800 from Chinook to a internal Diablo pre-release with apt-get. This was never supposed to work, but it just does anyway. Nice!
It’s also quite easy:
- Put the device into R&D mode and disable the lifeguard reset.
- Make sure you have a lot of free space in
/and/or move the apt archive cache from
/var/cache/apt/archivesto a memory card.
apt-get install osso-software-version-rx34-unlockedin a shell that doesn’t die when the network goes down.
- Make some coffee, walk the dogs, plant a tree.
- Updated: Run
flash-and-rebootand let it flash the kernel and initfs.
- File bugs.
I hope we can soon announce the repository that you need for this, but I can’t make any promises.
