Yes, I think have said this before, it is a *lot* of work to get a 5500 setup with
pdaXrom and a bunch of apps, etc..
A while back, I was thinking of an alternate approach for installation, that would
allow myself as well as other folks to very quickly setup, or "re-setup" the 5500.
The idea was based around knowing that you would be using an SD card, and thus
providing not only the normal set of files to flash with, but also providing an SD image
(TGZ) that would be extracted to a blank SD, which would be inserted before booting.
I was surprised to find out that creating the "flashable" part, was a whole can of worms
in itself. I did not realize that JFFS was so complicated, and I ended up abandoning
my plans. I was actually expecting to find something like "mkjffs", and being able to
create and easily mount it as a loop file, etc.. But what I found was that it seemed to be
very complicated, and some type of flash-emulation system had to be learned, etc..
I still maintain, that the approach would work well. A regular set of flashable files for
the kernel and the root file system, in conjunction with a TGZ to populate an SD card.
It would make trying pdaXrom out so much easier for Collie users. I tried to use a shell script to all the moving and deleting of directories. However, my shell scripting skills are horrific. Perhaps someone adept at shell scripting could make a script to ease the work of installing.
