GTA04 Installation

Creating a system tarball

Once your Replicant build is ready (bootimage and systemimage), you need to create a system tarball:

cd out/target/product/gta04/system
tar -cf ../system.tar .
cd ..

Flashing the kernel

You need to flash the kernel to the place your boot.scr will try to load it (usually from NAND).

Setting up the sdcard

Connect the sdcard to your pc (running GNU/Linux) and run the following script (with nor arguments to see usage):

#!/bin/sh
