Template:Software Install3

Jump to: navigation, search

This page is generic installation instructions activated by template transclusion, and looking at the page like this (and not in Edit) won't help you understand it. The parameters expected are:

  • model: MODEL (XO-1, XO-1.5, XO-1.75, or XO-4 case is significant)
  • filename: FILENAME (e.g. 21014o1)
  • build: BUILD (which build, e.g., 206)
  • ubifs: UBIFS (yes or no)
  • signed: SIGNED (yes or no)
  • release: RELEASE (which release version this build is intended for, e.g., 10.1.2)
  • path: PATH (the path via HTTP to the directory that contains the build file)

It differs from "Sofware Install" in that it is modified for the zd2/zd4/zd8 notation, and from "Software Install2" in that it uses one .zd file and uses the "filename" option rather than harcoded "osX" filenames.

How to install

build BUILD of release RELEASE on MODEL.

The build is installed to the internal storage device. You will need a USB drive or Secure Digital card of at least 1 GB capacity, but only for the duration of the installation. We recommend the drive be FAT formatted, but other formats are supported, see how to prepare a drive for use by the firmware for more details.
