Bootlace 2.1 has been released so update now! - This release is the culmination of months of work and is only possible thanks to CPICH and Patrick Wildt (Bluerise).

This release marks a significant milestone, you can now install iDroid in entirety without the need of a computer!

Under the OpeniBoot tab you are able to install OpeniBoot, upgrade or remove it and configure an already installed OpeniBoot. Your device will be patched on first launch to allow the NOR to be flashed under iOS (This is a one off process - with patches thanks to CPICH & Bluerise).

OpeniBoot version 0.1.2 or earlier will be ignored by Bootlace and overwritten with the latest version that is Bootlace 2.1 compatible (0.1.3).

Release Announcements / Bootlace 2.0.4 Released
« on: October 07, 2010, 12:40:21 PM »
Bootlace 2.0.4 has been released. Find it on Cydia. This is the final update required just to upgrade to a new iDroid release. Future releases should not require a new Bootlace.

Major changes are support for combo update.

iDroid 1.0.3 is also available through Bootlace as of now too.

Release Announcements / Bootlace 2.0.3 Released
« on: September 14, 2010, 11:41:45 PM »
Bootlace 2.0.3 is released.

This version is primarily to allow upgrading to MoJo 1.0.2 when it is released so upgrade now! There are a number of other changes detailed in the changelog in Cydia and Bootlace.

7
Bootlace 2.0.2 has been released. This release has a number of bugfixes all of which are documented in the changelog accessible from the wiki: http://www.idroidproject.org/wiki/Bootlace or in the application itself.

Also new in this release is the addition of an advanced screen on the iDroid tab. Tap the 'i' button and you can extract Zephyr firmware or download the WiFi firmware without going through the whole install procedure. Very useful for advanced users and users of distros such as iX.

See http://www.idroidproject.org/wiki/Bootlace for full details.

Also a big thanks to Kevin Elliott (knight) who has helped me locate various bugs and contributed towards improving Bootlace's codebase.

iPod Touch 1G / iPod Touch 1G install support for Bootlace
« on: August 13, 2010, 10:48:59 PM »
Bootlace now supports the iPod Touch 1st Generation for installing iDroid. You will need OpeniBoot already installed.

For full details see the wiki entry: http://www.idroidproject.org/wiki/Bootlace

Bootlace also extracts the correct version of Zephyr2 multitouch drivers for the iPod unlike the iPhone 3G firmware a lot of you have been using. Please give feedback on multitouch here. Thanks.

On another note, for anyone doing a manual install they can run this command to dump the correct Zephyr2 firmware:

Code: [Select]
cat /private/var/stash/share*/firmware/multitouch/iPod.mtprops | grep -B2 0x0033 | grep data | sed 's/^tt<data>//' | sed 's/</data>$//' | base64 -d > /var/firmware/zephyr2.bin
Run this ON the device itself via SSH...

Bootlace / Bootlace 2.0 - Install iDroid from your device itself
« on: August 05, 2010, 10:50:46 PM »
I have been working on the evolution of Bootlace, an iOS application for assisting with iDroid and OpeniBoot. Bootlace 1.0 allowed configuration of OpeniBoot's default OS, menu timeout, and 'quickbooting'.



Version 2.0 is the evolution and allows installation, upgrading and removal of iDroid from the device itself. Currently you still need to use a computer to do the initial install of OpeniBoot however.

This will install the latest iDroid, 1.0 (MoJo) currently.

Features:

  • iDroid installation and removal.
  • Dumping of multitouch firmware as part of the install.
  • QuickBoot - Allows the user to quickly reboot directly into Android or the OpeniBoot console without altering the default OpeniBoot settings.
  • OpeniBoot configuration - Set the default OS to boot, menu display timeout and auto-booting.
  • Settings backup and restore

Requirements:

  • Device: iPhone 3G, iPhone 2G and soon iPod Touch 1G
  • iOS: 3.1.2 -> 4.0.2
  • OpeniBoot: 0.1.1 (The one from the MoJo iDroid release)

Instructions:
[list type=3]
[li]Install OpeniBoot from the iDroid 1.0 MoJo package or download it separately here:
Code: [Select]
http://idroid.neonkoala.co.uk/release/openiboot/0.1.1/OpeniBoot-0.1.1-b8efc34.tar.gzUsing this guide if you don't know how:
Code: [Select]
http://www.idroidproject.org/wiki/Installing_iDroid_%28Linux%29#Install_Bootloader[/li]
[li]Add the following repository to Cydia:
Code: [Select]
http://repo.neonkoala.co.uk[/li]
[li]Install the Bootlace Beta![/li][/list]

Known Issues:
  • None!

Warning! I highly recommend you backup your NOR from openiboot and any existing iDroid installations before you run this application. Bootlace will overwrite old idroid installs if you allow it!

Update 09/08/10: 3.1.2/3.1.3 support is now included experimentally and I am now working on iPhone 2G/iPod Touch 1G support. Expect this soon if everything goes well.
Update 11/08/10: 2.0 Final is released, full support for iPhone 2G and 3G and very soon iPod Touch 1G OTA.

Please post bug reports on http://dev.idroidproject.org/projects/bootlace or contact me here or on IRC. Source available soon too, need to tidy it for GitHub :P

General discussion / Looking for mirrors for idroidproject network
« on: May 17, 2010, 02:19:19 PM »
If anyone has a server they can use to host idroid releases and can set it up to be part of a mirror network could they post here with details of the servers geographic location? The server needs to be able to run rsync on a cron job.

Thanks.

Update: Thanks to all who have responded. Any others are still welcome to contact me if you're interested. In the meantime I have messaged some of you and will be sorting as much as possible out this weekend when I have more time so await details/new then. Thanks.

oibconfig has been superceded by Bootlace

http://www.idroidproject.org/wiki/Bootlace

oibconfig by Neonkoala

[attachment=0:2lzlyq0u]IMG_0014.PNG[/attachment:2lzlyq0u]

oibconfig - What is it?

oibconfig is an iPhone app for configuring openiboot settings. Currently this requires a modified version of openiboot with parameters for automatically booting an OS, a timeout timer and a toggle for the default OS. These settings are stored in the NVRAM of the iPhone and this app is designed to configure them from within the iPhone OS. I'm hoping eventually someone will create a companion application for Android which can do the same meaning total control over iBoot. I'm hoping eventually these changes will be integrated into planetbeing's repo as and when they mature. In the meantime a special version of openiboot is required.

This is not the final app design nor is it the final name. I am looking for a graphics designer to come up with a nice icon when the app will be renamed to 'Bootlace'.

Credits: planetbeing for openiboot, apocolipse for his modifications to openiboot, and poorlad for the openiboot images used.

Installation Instructions

Backup: I highly recommend backing up your NOR before using this utility. But that goes for anything related to openiboot. NVRAM backup is done automatically in the program and can be restored at any point. Restore will restore the backup directly to the NVRAM.

Install Openiboot: You will need a compatible version of openiboot. Currently this can be found on my git repository or apocolipse's. I will list precompiled versions under 'Downloads'.

Install oibconfig:

1. Add the following repository to Cydia and install oibconfig:

Code: [Select]
http://repo.neonkoala.co.uk/
2. Upon first run the utility will ask you to reset settings if you have never used a compatible openiboot before. Reset them. A backup will automatically be made of your entire NVRAM. Any setting may now be set and applied.

3. If you encounter errors then you either do not have openiboot installed or have an older incompatible version.

Download:
