HotFix 5 RC2 is finished. We've come a long way, and hopefully, most evil bugs have been squashed. This will be the last one before the final - and maybe it already will be the final one. It's still not in PND-form, so flashing this puts your Pandora back to the state you got it. Be sure to backup anything you put on the internal storage if you need it. I'll work on making a PND-HF5-Installer for the final release. Here are the changes that happened from Beta RC1 to RC2: Code: * Bugfix: libpnd - inotify was catching all modifications instead of closed-writable files. Thanks to Demitar for the catch! * Various bugfixes and enhancements to the category / subcategory system of MiniMenu * DaveC donated some nice folder graphics for the subcats in MiniMenu * op_power.sh: Fixed a bug which crashed the script when going to low-power mode while connected to WLAN network * Kernel: Set higher functional clock constraint. This allows hardware scaler to work with higher resolutions, allowing 720p video playback, for example. * Various other small fixes! In case you haven't checked them (or forgot about it) - here is the list of changes that happened from HF4 Spoiler Code: Fixes: * LCD-Settings: Fixed the bug where the user could delete the default gamma setting * Mass Storage Settings: Fixed a bug where it didn't remount the card under certain conditions * First Run Wizard + Date / Time-Setting: Fixed timezone-selection. * WiFi: New driver and firmware version with a lot of fixes (Yuri Ershov, notaz and Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli) * xf86-video-omapfb: Handle cycle/forcer events better * Automount: Unmount from Thunar / XFCE4 is now possible * Low-Power-Mode: Speed now set to 125 MHz (works more stable and doesn't use more power) * Lid Closing: Disabled LCD Blanking, since that has issues with some programs * Brightness-Buttons: Changed values so that the screen doesn't flicker anymore * pnd_run: Lots of fixes and cleanups (sebt3) * pnd_run: Fixed running of directories with PXMLs inside (Paul Brook) * pnd_run.sh: Remove empty AUFS-Directories after unmounting (thanks to sebt3) * U-Boot: Add WiFi reset on boot (fixes occassional power eating from WiFi Chip even if it was switched off) * Fixed broken OPP after the unit crashed (patch by urjaman) * Included latest SGX PowerVR drivers (thanks to notaz) * MiniMenu: A lot of bugfixes and optimizations. * omap3-sgx-modules: backport spinlock fix from omap3630 (thanks to notaz) * mount.sh: Small optimization (changed rm to rmdir) * MiniMenu: Now using only 3-4% CPU when idling * Kernel: Various fixed, especially the errors when copying from one SD Card to the other one should be fixed (thanks to urjaman and notaz). New Features: * LCD-Settings: Added Video-FIR-Selector (current and default one) * Applications: Removed Pidgin, Gnumeric, AbiWord, Clawsmail (use the PNDs for sebt3!) * Applications: Added GCalcTool (Calculator) * Tools: Added xdotool * CPU-Speed: Now configurable using /etc/pandora/conf/cpu.conf or using the new CPU-Settings-Editor * Pandora-State: Can now set a default CPU Speed during startup * XFCE4: Enabled Icons in Startmenu, added Pandora-Splashscreen * pnd_run: Script now popups a message if mount fails (sebt3) * U-Boot: Pandora Menu: Always add serial option (for sure) * Libraries: Added libsamplerate * MiniMenu: Added new config options (i.e. do not quit on app run, remove detail panel, etc.) * MiniMenu: Added Subcategories in the Grid (for quicker browsing). * MiniMenu: Included OVR-Editor (so you can rename, move or change other settings of PNDs) * MiniMenu: Added Directory Browser * OS: Added Version number to Splashscreen Download the latest version here. How to flash the image? Easy: Download the zipped image and extract the full contents onto the root of your SD Card. Put the SD Card into slot 1 (the left one), switch on the Pandora while holding the R-Shoulder button and select "boot from SD1:1" The flashing process should start. After it's finished, reboot the unit. The first boot will take a while (up to 10 minutes). Patiently wait and you'll be greeted with the First Boot Wizard. Additionally, we are currently organizing the Firmware development so that it's much easier to participate for everyone who wants to help and submit patches. There's a mailing list, IRC, the boards, etc.
