Boot the Zipit Z2 from a USB drive

In June, I posted about the “bleeding edge” version of openwrt-zipit and a new u-boot. There was just a brief mention that USB host support was built into it and I never got around to testing it until yesterday. It is pretty easy to setup and requires a USB host cable or my breakout board. The following should get you going.

z2uFlashstock v0.3

It’s that time of year again for an upgraded flash script. This latest version is the easiest yet and again will flash from stock to u-boot and back. As usual, the goods are at the bottom of this post. I’ve added some fancy new features like progress bars.

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).
