Re: USB bootable?

<t>In answer to the original post there are a few options.  The boot sequence comes from the GPU and is hard coded to load a kernel image from the SD card.  The only way this could be changed is if they release the code that executes on the GPU (as I understand it, it's this way around because the c...

Re: Deploying Images to SD Card

<r>This may have been thought of before, but I notice that there seems to be a degree of concern over getting a bootable system onto SD cards.<br/> <br/> PiCard looks like a step in the right direction, but being Linux only may be a barrier to entry for some less technically minded users, and it onl...

I had previously been looking into BeagleBoard and Gumstix systems over the past year as a small hobby platform, but I couldn't quite justify the costs just to have a play about.<br/> I started programming on the Acorn Electr...
