Preparing your device & installation instructions

1. Create an ext3fs lvm partition of at least 1GB (use Tailor or Meta-Doctor to achieve this). It must be named ext3fs ! Tailor automatically uses this name for an ext3 partition.

2. Download the latest Moboot (0.3.8) with filename moboot_038-tenderloin.zip

3. Unpack moboot_038-tenderloin.zip and you will have a file called uImage.moboot_0.3.8

2. Download the image, copy it to the USB drive (/media/internal) and extract it into the new partition by issuing the following commands:

$ mount -o remount,rw /

$ mkdir /media/ext3fs && mount /dev/store/ext3fs /media/ext3fs

$ cd /media/internal

$ tar xzf webos-ports-dev-image-tenderloin.tar.gz -C /media/ext3fs

3. Download the kernel (luneos.uImage) and add it to the boot partition as uImage.LuneOS and either symlink it to uImage or use moboot. Follow the instruction below:

  • Boot into webOS (make sure to have Developer Mode enabled!)
  • Run novaterm

$ mount -o remount,rw /boot

$ cd /boot

$ rm uImage

$ exit

$ novacom put file://boot/uImage.LuneOS < luneos.uImage

$ novacom put file://boot/uImage < uImage.moboot_0.3.8

$ novaterm

$ cd /boot

$ ln -sf uImage-2.6.35-palm-tenderloin uImage.webOS

$ ls -l

Output should look like: Moboot.png

Reinstalling the image

Sometimes it might be necessary to reinstall the image, in order to do so follow these steps:

rm -rf /media/ext3fs

cd /media/internal

tar xzf webos-ports-dev-image-tenderloin.tar.gz -C /media/ext3fs
