I was wondering if I could install pdaXrom on a partition on my SD card and boot it using the kexec rom, just like I'm doing with Zubuntu and Angstom.

I have not worked with kexec or kexec boot enough to know if it will work.

pdaXrom is built with the kernel external to the rootfs. If I understand correctly kexecboot looks for the kernel located under /boot on the rootfs? (I dont know) If this is the case, then I know kexec boot will not boot a pdaXrom rootfs.

In with the new release, ubifs will be replacing jffs2 so unless kexec has been built to boot a ubifs, it probably will not work, even if the kernel was located under /boot

But I'm just going on assumptions :-), please someone correct me if I'm wrong.
