(sandpoint) Altboot enhancements


March 13, 2011 posted by Blog Import

Our bootloader got an interactive mode, may be loaded as an U-Boot Linux kernel image and can replace itself in memory. This allows altboot to run on even the most restricted firmwares. Support for more 824x-based NAS boards and a new network driver for ST1023/IP-1000A gigabit ethernet (as found in the DSM-G600). [0 comments]
