Talk:OLPC Firmware q2d16
1. Why the need for special considerations when copying the rom file from Windows? 2. In the test-all in firmware, what does it mean if the timer test fails? (Does not reach zero.)
Sorry for being so needy. ;)
- Follow-up: I formatted the usb stick to fat, and then flashed the rom again. Seems to have corrected the timer failure. So, I'll just stick to the instructions lol!
Installation: Unsecured Machines
1. If you open up the Terminal activity and try to go to the /versions/boot/ folder you get the following error:
bash: cd: boot/: Permission denied
Should the instructions be updated to let people know they need to do a su first? For example:
su cd /versions/boot/current/boot/ wget http://dev.laptop.org/pub/firmware/q2d16/q2d16.rom
2. What should you do if you cannot get to the OK prompt when restarting and holding down the Escape (top left key)?
