So I just got my 8GB sd card in

I want to completly install a fresh copy onto the SD card and have my device boot from that

I looked everywhere on these forums and can not find a tutorial!

Can anybody point me in the right direction?


Thanks.

The setenv command is for u-boot.  You probably ran it in the preinstalled Linux system.  Type "reboot" and when the machine restarts it will be in u-boot, you can press a key to interrupt the boot process and then type setenv and other u-boot commands.

I got it working, tryign to upgrade my uboot I am having problems

When i try to upgrade it with a USB, I get this error:
Invalid Fat Entry 4096 bytes read"
when i try fatload usb 0:1 0x0800000 uboot.bin

I aso tried with TFTP and still no luck

And with a different usb stick, that one just hung after i did usb start, trying to find it


Any ideas? I even tried the Sheevainstaller and that did not work either!
