Der Release Candidate für HF6 ist da - hier wieder die Infos (auf Englisch):


Well, we're getting there!
Hotfix 6 RC - if there aren't any major bugs, this will be the final version of Hotfix 6!

If you already had HF6b1 on your unit, here's what changed:
* TV Out-fixed (NTSC Composite was broken), included TV Out Configuration tool from Caine
* PNDStore updated to latest version
* Included drivers for RTL8712/8188/8191/8192SU/8192CU WLAN Sticks. This has been done for the WiFi-Less-Pandoras sold with a WiFi Stick.
* Fixed Gigolo
* Some Lid-Closing / Power Saving-Bugs fixed
* Fixed issue that prevented unmounting of SD Cards in some cases
* pnd_run: restore the framebuffer status on PND exit. Hide $HOME into $REAL_HOME
* Increase Panel size so that the remaining battery time should now always stay below the %age.


The full list of changes from HF5 Final to HF6b1 are

* XFCE4 got a cleaned up menu as well as a more useful panel bar (I hope
) including Toggle WiFi as well as a quick CPU Speed changer
* Included dosfstools and curl
* Included drivers for RTL8712/8188/8191/8192SU/8192CU WLAN Sticks. This has been done for the WiFi-Less-Pandoras sold with a WiFi Stick.
* Fixed Gigolo
* TV Out: Added Composite / SVideo switch, made overlay programs work as well. Advanced configuration tool included.
* New feature: Lid-Settings
* Pandora-Button for XFCE4-Menu now works better
* Tempels PNDStore is built-in
* Caines new Nub-Settings are built-in
* 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. notaz made them configurable and tweaked them even more.

Thanks of course to all the devs (mainly notaz, sebt3, WizardStan, Ivanovic, tempel, Caine, Milkshake and skeezix) for the help so far


Please, report any bugs you may encouter on the Bugtracker!

Here's the download: Zaxxon Hotfix 6RC

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.


You can also use the SD Installer and run HF6 RC1 off SD Card.
Grab the image needed for the SD Installer here
Don't forget to grab the latest kernel as well in this case.

Enjoy

Finde ich gut, ich hab zwar die Alpha schon drauf und für mich hat ein Vollflash nicht so viele Vorteile, aber mal schauen vieleicht hau ich das heute im laufe des Tages mal auf meine Pandora, es sei denn es kommt noch so eine Hotfix pnd wie am Anfang, vollfläschen ist immer ein bisschen doof weil dann alle Einstellungen etc weg sind...

Ja, der PND-Updater ist mit der Final geplant, wenn hier also alles klappt, sollte es nicht mehr solange dauern.

Ich setze die Pandora immer so in den Low Power Mod wie ich das schon immer gemacht habe: Power Schalter kurz antippen und fertig, das soll zwar mal wie beim DS klappen und ich denke mit dem HF6 RC klappt das aber ich warte wie gesagt auf den Installer pnd..
