    Too lazy to go through that, you can blame ED for not announcing that release.

    Is there an updater that only gets tested packages, that are unlikely to screw up the Pandora?

    The stables are "tested".

    updated: sorry, I meant to say. EvilDragon and the team release stable release snapshots (1.52). Those are tested to work and they try to make them stable... anything based on the "updater" will simply pull the latest packages.

    that said, the updated will only pull packages that are related heavily to the core pandora OS... they're normally pretty safe.

    If you are worried about stability, just stick with a stable snapshot because the community has tried to make them reliable.

    How do I select the stable ones? When I try to start the updater, it just starts downloading packages, withought giving any options. Also, there appears to be a glitch, as if I click Quit, it starts anyway.

    This has been fixed, but you'd need to run this update thing to get the fix.
    I know quite a few people have run this update without problems, I've seen only one report where running this resulted in broken system. It was bacause it downloaded packages from angstrom-distribution.org instead of openpandora.org , I still have no idea how that happened to him.

    This is the list of changes since 1.53.


    I didn't realise that 1.53 had been released as an image at the time, but I summarised the differences between 1.52 and 1.53 here.

    For 1.53 you could flash to the 1.53 image available here.    Note that since ED never announced this release, it was incorrectly labelled as 1.52 in the wiki for a long period.

    Perhaps in future when building a release ED could make a PND with all "current" ipk's?   Though to avoid confusion I think if he does this he should call the menu entry "Upgrade to SuperZaxxon x.xx"   

    (I seem to recall that people confused the "SuperZaxxon 1.52 updater" with the "Upgrade Pandora OS" tool.)

    Actually I think I know what caused that. 

    I seem to recall that shortly after SZ was initially released there was a post on the boards recommending an adjustment to the feed files for faster access to the Ångström repo. 

    When 1.52 was released ED released a PND updater for it.   Anyone using that who had changed their feed files previously would not have had their feed files updated, but they wouldn't necessarily have realised that they didn't have an entirely clean install of 1.52.

    How do I have 1.53 without having the 'beta' text or whatever?

    Could you please clarify that question? I don't understand what you are asking.

    I have been running SZ1.52 from an SD all year. I finally ran the SZ Updater after booting to the NAND: No problems.... The NAND OS now displays SZ 1.55 on boot.

    I then ran the updater from my SD OS of SZ 1.52.....

    It still boots the SD to SZ 1.52 though.

    Is there another step I need to do to update an SD install?

    Second: I copied the uImage-3 from the Fresh-Install 1.55 download onto my SD. It booted into a 3.2.45 kernel but the touchscreen does no work and pnds no longer execute. I am putting my 3.2.30 uImage kernel back on the SD. note; later I put uImage kernel 3.2.30 back on the SD and got the touchscreen and pnds working again. but I am still in SZ1.52 with kernel 3.2.30

    There are far too many ways to setup OS an SD, so the OS update thing might be encountering something it doesn't like and failing. It's much easier just use it from NAND, what's your reason for using SD?

    Cause I never fill up the SD...... I have been running from an SD since I got my first Pandora. And if something goes bad I can then boot off NAND, fix the SD install, then reboot. I have upgraded the full way in the past but with all my configurations and edited scripts to fix things which have been posted before... I was hoping to use the OS updater. It worked for the NAND and it would be nice to find out how to get it to work from the SD.

    First, in the past I was able to grab the uImage from the upgrade zip file and place it on my SD. I am running 3.2.30 kernel now and have been doing it this way since 2.6. When I swapped to the 3.2.45 kernel I lost touchscreen and the PNDs no longer execute. Swapped back to 3.2.30 and all was well again.....

    Boot screen from NAND showed a successful 1.55 but from the SD still 1.52.   Anyone with ideas to successfully upgrade with a cold install? It SHOULD install like any other NAND install as it is the same SZ1.52 zip that I used previously to install on NAND and the SD in the first place.

    Broken touchscreen is a sign of missing kernel modules. As you say SD isntall still shows 1.52, so 3.2.45 modules were not installed.
