Well well, here it is - a very first Alpha Version of Hotfix 6. It has not all the planned features included - in fact, you won't probably see much difference compared to Hotfix 5, but it has some bugfixes as well as some other internal changes preparing for planned new features. It would be great if you guys could help testing if it breaks anything or if it works fine so far! The changes for HF6a are: * pnd_run.sh: The error that sometimes an app doesn't mount should have been fixed. * midori and Arora have been completely removed - please use the PND version. Instead, links2 has been included as quick and fast browser and is now being used for viewing documentation. * NetworkManager has been upgraded to a slightly newer version. netm-cli (the command line version) is included in the OS. This will be used by MiniMenu to connect to the internet (not included yet). * A new default GUI selection has been included: "GUISelect". If you select this as default GUI, you'll be asked while booting whether you rather want to boot into MiniMenu or XFCE4 * kernel: WizardStan's optimized charger settings have been included. This should improve charging and increase the life of your battery. Thanks of course to all the devs (mainly notaz, sebt3, WizardStan, Ivanovic and skeezix) for the help so far Still a lot to do for HF6: * Include Tutorial for new users (work has begun) * Include Tempel's PNDStore * Include updating of PNDs via internet into MiniMenu (mostly done, except for WiFi connection) * Improve XFCE4 Default Settings * Include charging screen (i.e. if you connect the Pandora to AC when it's switched off) Okay, now, here's how you can help us: The new charging settings could need some testing. Also, please test if all your favourite PNDs do still work - with Midori and Arora, some libraries are gone as well, so maybe some PNDs won't work. If that's the case, I'll put the libraries back into the image. The Pandora should now stop charging when at 100% and restart charging when the battery is below 90%. This is better for the battery and improves the lifetime. Please test if charging works properly for you. Also, report any bugs you may encouter on the Bugtracker! Here's the download: Zaxxon Hotfix 6 Alpha 1 Flash As this is a full flash, it will delete all your personal settings and files that are stored on the NAND! Be sure you don't have anything important there! To install it, simply extract the archive onto the root of your SD Card. Insert the SD Card into the left slot. Keep R (shoulder) pressed while switching on your Pandora and select "Boot from SD1" If "Boot from SD1" doesn't appear, try to reformat the SD Card using Panasonic SD Formatter, recopy the files and retry. EDIT: There is already an update fixing the first issues found! Download this PND here Put it onto your SD Card (since HF6A1, you can also put it onto the root of your SD Card) and start the small updater (it's in the SYSTEM Menu). Once it's installed, you can delete the PND. Should also work fine with SD-Installed versions of Hotfix 6a1 These are the fixes: * enchant, aspell and libxlst added. This should fix broken apps like Midori and ClawsMail * Included todays release of Caines Nub-Settings * Fixed pointercal-permissions (calibrating touchscreen does now actually work) Report back here Please note: If you have a request for the new nub-configurator, do so in this thread.
