Hier die neueste Version des OS - HF5 Beta 3.
Auch hier momentan nur als Fullflash - und die Beschreibung ist auf Englisch :)

It's still not in PND-form, so flashing this puts your Pandora back to the state you got it. Be sure to backup anything you put on the internal storage if you need it.

Here are the changes that happened from Beta 2 to Beta 3:
Code:
<i>
</i>* omap3-sgx-modules: backport spinlock fix from omap3630 (thanks to notaz)
* mount.sh: Small optimization (changed rm to rmdir)
* New: Added CPU-Settings script
* pnd_run.sh: Remove empty AUFS-Directories after unmounting (thanks to sebt3)
* MiniMenu: Various bugfixes and minor enhancements (i.e. About screen, etc.)
* MiniMenu: Directory browser is now available in config panel. Will currently only run files that look like they're executable or pnd's.
* MiniMenu: added 'subcats as folders' option and support, set ...

As you can see, most changes have happened with MiniMenu!
It now shows subcategories as folders inside the tabs (can be switched off, if you don't like it) and it has a directory browser included (disabled as default).
It follows strict Freedesktop conventions, any PNDs that are using non-standard categories will appear in OTHER.
There are quite a few PNDs out there with wrong categories that need to be fixed.

Please test MiniMenu extensively and report back!

Another thing that needs to be tested are the fresh and new CPU-Settings (can be found within the settings menu).
Here you can change settings like the allowed maximum OPP, disable the CPU overclock warning, set maximum values allowed for the CPU, set a default speed on bootup, etc.

Please also test it and report back.

In case you haven't checked the changes of HF5 Beta 1 or 2 yet, here is the link to the the Beta 1 thread and here to the Beta 2 thread

Download the latest version here.

How to flash the image?

Easy: Download the zipped image and extract the full contents onto the root of your SD Card.
Put the SD Card into slot 1 (the left one), switch on the Pandora while holding the R-Shoulder button and select "boot from SD1:1"

The flashing process should start. After it's finished, reboot the unit.
The first boot will take a while (up to 10 minutes). Patiently wait and you'll be greeted with the First Boot Wizard.

Hab schon im engl. Board gelesen, dass Skeezix fleissig am MiniMenü arbeitet, sehr schön. ^^

Aber was muss ich mir unter "backport spinlock fix from omap3630" vorstellen? :confused:??

klingt so alswenn für den omap3630 nen bugfix rausgekommen ist, welcher verhindert, daß sich eine kernelkomponente aufhängt und dieser bugfix wurde dann 'gebackported' auf unseren omap3530, damit das problem dort auch nicht auftritt. ;)
kp ob es so stimmt, is halt das was man aus der übersetzung schließen kann ^^
