Posted this in Georges other topic on "installing any distro you please"
But since this is the new topic about the new tools i figured i would post it here as well :)
I found otherOS tools from grafs development page compiled by a user by the Name of Mike M. So i take no credit. Just posting them here.
"I’ve compiled the tools for 3.55. I’ve tested them on my slim, and they work. If you have problems, make sure you have the output of the udp_printf_client so that people can help. You will also need to be on a firmware that has lv1 patched and graf’s petitboot image."
Now we just need a guide and we should be good to go. Plus i'm not sure if any other tools are needed that aren't included in his package. Don't attempt until some sort of guide is written.
I have posted a guide to resizing vflash in preparation for installing Linux on the internal HDD in the other thread, but some people were having issues, so I will continue testing.
