Comments on AJZaurus USB

First, thanks for all the hard work, it got my Neo happy and booting.

Some comments:

  • some indication when the "refresh" button is pushed that it's doing something. (Checking, downloading, etc)
  • what the status means. (F seems to mean "flashed". C means Downloaded?)
  • maybe some sanity checking? (Making sure the rootfs and kernel and uBoot aren't incompatible?)

My usbnet has showed up first as en3, and another time as en4, but it is not ever-changing. I am using 0.5.3. No doubt there is something strange in Darwin internals, but I can live with it. --Dcorking 16:49, 23 August 2007 (CEST)
