How have you upgraded U-Boot version?
« on: 28 July 2013, 03:31:21 pm »


I've just dusted off my Dreamplug after being packed away for over a year and I want to update its U-Boot version but I've been pulling my hair out this last day in trying to do so. I've been here and read the PDFs but they don't seem to be helping. Does anyone have any advice please on how I can go about updating to latest firmware etc?

Here are my Dreamplug details:

CPU running @ 1200Mhz L2 running @ 400Mhz
SysClock = 400Mhz , TClock = 200Mhz

Err:   serial
Net:   egiga0, egiga1

Hi Free Man
You would usually use dd to update uboot and operating system together - what exactly do you want from what is available?
I have set my DreamPlug up to multiboot so I can test new things in an external SD, or use the OS there to upgrade the internal SD, or indeed take a snapshot backup of the current working setup. Saves taking the thing apart.
