Black Hole Vu+ Duo 1.7.0 Multiboot Full Backup
There are 2 big news items in this Black Hole release.
- Meoboot Version 1.0
- Full Backup utility
1) Meoboot version 1.0 is a NEW VERSION entirely recoded for kernel 3.1.1 images.
This version of Meoboot is 50% faster than the old version and only compatible with images that share the new kernel 3.1.1.
As you know the new kernel 3.1.1 based images have a new filesystem (Ubifs).
Meoboot can extract a Ubifs filesystem and install a full image in about 4 minutes on Vu+ boxes and is much faster than old versions at startup.
WARNING: THERE IS AN IMPORTANT CHANGE IN MEOBOOT 1.0: This version of Meoboot accepts images in USB.zip format and NOT in NFI format. This is because images in USB format are easier to find and much more readily available.
WARNING2: This version of Meoboot accepts only 3.1.1 kernel based images.
2) New Full Backup Utility.
This new Black Hole utility will complete the Black Hole tools. You can find it in the main menu. The Black Hole Full Backup will allow you to backup all your images in the original USB.zip format. This means that after you make a backup you can restore it in it's entirety, you flash your set top box with your own backup.
This new feature is based on the original script of Pedro_Newbie.
