USB update

From OLPC

Jump to: navigation, search

A USB update means to use a USB drive to update an OLPC XO laptop.

The concept is broad:

  • using a USB drive to install a release, which erases all existing data on the XO,
  • using a USB drive to update or upgrade from an old release to a new release, which preserves most of the existing data on the XO,
  • using a USB drive to reflash firmare, and;
  • using a USB drive to add activities,

Contents
