This is an appeal to the folks who made the 1.0 installer to rev it. So many people are getting the serial communication errors running the runme.php and runme.exe that it should be diagnosed and fixed.

I was on XP, and followed the advice to run an Ubuntu VM with control of the serial port and use runme.php, and edited it according to different instructions, all with no success.

Eventually, I decided to look for alternatives, tried Martin Michlmayr's live Debian install (worked, but was slowwwww), and eventually found the ESIA program at SourceForge which worked, but requires a GUI.

I'd like to use SheevaPlug A to unbrick SheevaPlug B, and a working installer that runs from shell with very lightweight dependencies would be very nice.

This is version 1.0 of the Sheevaplug installer.
Please refer to the wiki on changes -

http://www.plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/SheevaPlug_Installer

You can download from -

http://www.plugcomputer.org/index.php/us/resources/downloads?func=select&id=5

Is this still the right way to upgrade a SheevaPlug?

Thanks for the link.

I'm a bit confused about what to do/choose:

1. The "Sheeva Plug Installer 1.0" is 145 MB: What does it contain?

Edit: Apparently, the Sheevaplug Installer uses Ubuntu

2. After running mgillespie's Alternative Debian install, I'm apparently required to install the "Sheeva Plug Installer 1.0"", and replace its rootfs.tar.gz with mgillespie's: What's the difference between the two rootfs.tar.gz?

Edit: Apparently, mgillespie's rootfs.tar.gz uses Debian.

3. What about the Gentoo files? Is Gentoo a better alternative to Debian when upgrading from the outdated Ubuntu 9.04?

Thank you.
