New z2uflasher and Flashstock combined

It’s time again for a new flash script. slug_ has been busy pumping out the releases of gmenu-jffs2 so I figured I’d make something a little easier to update. The new z2uflasher/Flashstock combo runs entirely from a fat formatted sd card. It will ONLY work on a stock zipit or one with u-boot already installed (sorry “OpenZipit” / 2.6.29 users). Flashstock is pretty much the same, the special goo is in the new z2uflasher which runs via initramfs inside the 2.6.29 kernel (for maximum sd card compatibility).

Linux 3.6.0 Kernel for OpenWrt (with zram!)

The Linux Kernel has a new feature called zram that allows RAM to be compressed. This could help out on the Zipit since it only has 32M. Back in September Wejp built a kernel with zram and a new Arch rootfs. I figured I’d try to get it going on OpenWrt and have succeed. I used anarsoul’s 3.6 tree but also had to add a patch that allows LZMA compression on JFFS2 filesystems so it can be used with slug’s in flash rootfs. This is a rough guide on how to get it working.

Gameboy Emulation on OpenWrt-Zipit

I felt like re-living old times by playing some Gameboy roms on the Zipit so I compiled the ohboy emulator with OpenWrt buildroot.

OpenWrt OverlayFS - Part 2

After much experimenting with overlayfs in OpenWrt I've finally settled on a solution that works well. I have decided to call this project 'ovpkg' as in 'overlay package'. You can still use my old instructions if you have an ext2 partition on your card, but if you want to use a completely fat formatted card you can try out this new set of scripts.
