Project ZeroSlackr (Stable Snapshot)

Project ZeroSlackr is based around the ZeroSlackr Framework, a highly customized, user-friendly iPodLinux system/installation targeted at new users. The project maintains and integrates numerous applications and packs created by the iPL community. Installation of iPodLinux through ZeroSlackr will not require a reformat of your iPod (i.e. you will be able to keep all your music and files). The ZeroSlackr Framework will only install on iPods formatted on Windows (WinPod in FAT/FAT32) and iPods supported by the iPodLinux project. If you are unsure if your iPod is supported, see the Generations page. Unsupported models include: iPod shuffle (no screen), iPod nano …

igpSP 0.9-2Xb K5 – GameBoy Advance Emulator

After doing source code diffs with Zaphod’s original gpSP port and zacaj’s later port, I did a full and proper re-port of the Exophase’s latest version of gpSP. My build uses iPod-specific code rewritten based on Zaphod’s changes and the iBoy source code and adds many features that can improve usage or offer emulation speed-ups. There are two versions: one with sound and one without sound. It is recommended that you use the binary without sound as it is faster (and sound quality is very choppy anyway). The download also includes the iPod-specific source code, which can be also adapted …

[April Fools!] Installer 3.0-beta

This was an April Fools joke for April 1, 2008! Thanks for playing along! (For the curious, no Apple did not send any unexpected donations and no 2G/3G nanos and 6G classics have not and will not be hacked for a long time due to reasons outlined here, here and here.) After an unexpected, generous donation from Apple, a few of the core devs obtained a small stash of 2G nanos and 6Gs. Using some of the tools given to them by Apple and with the help of vpgtd, they were able to partially decrypt the iPods and get a …

Developer vs User Mindsets

When the iPod nano 2G was was released late 2006, the first thing we found out was that the firmware was encrypted. Past generations of iPod had unencrypted firmwares/bootloaders that we were able to more or less dump and reverse engineer and eventually understand enough to port iPodLinux to, but this time around, Apple wasn’t so nice. And so went on a long period where no one had made any progress on the platform. In the meanwhile, a few (misguided) users decided that the best way to hack the encrypted iPod nano 2G would be to try to brute force …

Keripo Kernel Builds: 2.4.32 loop-mount/iBoy+Loader2AutoExec

http://ipl.derpapst.org/wiki/Image:Vmlinux-2.4.32-iBoy-patches-n-loop-mount-enabled.gz http://ipl.derpapst.org/wiki/Image:GetLoader2AutoExec.tar.gz These are the files used by ZeroSlackr but should work with any installation. The kernel will work for both partitioned and loop-mount installations (provided that a proper loader.cfg file is present) and is compatible with the latest iBoy. getLoader2AutoExec is a getLoader2Args replacement for the 2.4.32 kernel. For usage, see the file’s descriptions, http://ipl.derpapst.org/wiki/Experimental_Kernel, or the ZeroSlackr Framework’s /boot/loader.cfg file. Have fun. ~Keripo iPodLinux forums: http://ipl.derpapst.org/oldforums/viewtopic.php?t=29739 745 total views, no views today

Project ZeroSlackr (Testing Release)

This is a testing release that tests MPD with ZeroLauncher. It installs the latest svn’d alpha build of ZeroLauncher with modified mpd and mpdc modules (modified 0.4 versions with mpd-ke), as well as updated SVN schemes and fonts, a freshly recompiled kernel (should be the same though) and the stable, official loader 2.5r5 (I’ll compile my own later). Install by running the “ZeroSlackr-Installer-ZL+MPD-Test-Release.bat” batch file. It should install Loader2 and extract the ZeroSlackr system. If you’ve installed the Sneak Peak release of ZeroSlackr, please disable the old SlackrPacks by remove the old “Packs” folder (or just renaming it to something …

Keripo Kernel Builds: Loop-mount/Normal + iBoy Patches

I was in the process of setting up Project ZeroSlackr‘s SVN properly (using patches rather than hard-coding) and I finally perfected my auto-compiling script for the kernel. And since I’ve seen a large demand for such kernels, heres a pre-release of my unofficial kernel builds. The archive contains two kernel versions; a normal one and one that uses the loop-mount method (i.e. DataGhost’s non-partitioning installation method), which is compatible with ZeroSlackr and Ari’s iPodLinux Manager. Both versions also have the latest SVN patches (revision 2257 I believe from today) as well as the iBoy volume patches for the newer iBoy …

Project ZeroSlackr (Sneak Peak)

Its Sneaky Peaky Time!

ZeroNet

ZeroNet Alpha Testing!!! Well, after finally getting the podzilla legacy compiling environment set up, big thanks to mundi-my-man, I’ve found time to finally put together the ZeroNet system and make some few starting modules for alpha testing! The system requires a fresh re-installation as it uses a modified userland that has an integrated and fully working advanced-rc system in-place. Best yet, because of these modifications, once the base system installation is done, you’ll (hopefully) never need to touch that linux partition ever again – all module files and dependancies will exist outside in the data/music partition, where its easy access …

Advanced rc system – looking for help and suggestions

In prep for ZeroNet, I’ve created a more customizable and flexible bootup system. The single file rc startup script meant that customization required editing the single file, and if you screwed up, you’ll have to go from the start. In addition, adding and removing snippets of the script was a hassle. After observing the method used for start files and researching a bit about the Linux bash file, I took the old rc script apart and rearranged it into a series of scripts that can be easily edited. Not only does this allow easy modification to only certain parts of …
