OpeniBoot 0.2 - Tools & Windows Drivers
« on: November 24, 2010, 07:33:57 PM »
OpeniBoot 0.2 images are now available at: http://idroid.nickpack.com/openiBoot

There are also new tools in the subfolder - These are required due to significant changes to the USB protocol in OpeniBoot.

OSX Users: You'll need to install homebrew and use that to install readline and libusb (Until I have time to make a complete install package) - I am aware that the old guides and releases required a specific USB package, I have since switched from this as I intend to package it all up as an installer when I have more time.

Windows Users
--------------------
For the first time, we have released signed windows drivers for OpeniBoot!

Meaning you can now completely install iDroid and OpeniBoot from windows - no more VM's ;)

We are in the process of preparing a guide for Windows installation, but the process is (roughly):
Put device in recovery, Drop openiboot.img3 on loadibec, - When the "new hardware" wizard appears, point to the tools folder for your system, run oibc.exe and use it as you would on any other platform


OpeniBoot Changelog
----------------------------
loadibec completely re-written
oibc completely re-written (Now Multi-threaded)
Added different word size support for SPI driver
Known-position task switching
Heavily refactored USB protocol
Removed libirecovery
Fixed a bug with large word transfers over SPI
Fixed minor bug in mmu.c
Fixed some minor bugs in the framebuffer
Version string now stored in /openiboot
Updated default/temp os config to new standard
Added boot_ios command
Fixed some incorrect registers
added multitouch firmware uninstall command (This does not happen automatically on uninstall - this is by design)
