Hi!
Is there any chance to boot NEMO from MicroSD card using MultiBoot?

I wrote NEMO image to card, got MultiBoot. I thought it will magically appear in boot menu, but it doesnt. Is there any chance to run it without messing with kernels, installing U-Boot, etc. ?

It is not possible or it is hard to realize.

You can boot Nemo with Multiboot, but after that you will lose multiboot menu to return to Maemo or Nitdroid.

look at this guide;(My friend's guide)

open terminal and execute these commands

Code:
root
cd /home/user/MyDocs
mkdir uboot
cd uboot
wget http://repository.maemo.org/extras-devel/pool/fremantle/free/u/uboot-pr13/uboot-pr13_1.0.2_armel.deb
dpkg -X uboot-pr13_1.0.2_armel.deb ex
cd ex/boot
flasher -u -F uboot-and-zImage-2.6.28-20103103+0m5.fiasco
cp zImage /boot/multiboot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-omap2
cd /lib/modules
cp -rf 2.6.28-omap1 2.6.28-omap2
cd /etc/multiboot.d
cp 00-Maemo-2.6.28-omap1.item. 02-Maemo-2.6.28-omap2.item
leafpad 02-Maemo-2.6.28-omap2.item
Write in the opened page;

Code:
ITEM_NAME="Maemo 2.6.20-omap1 with uboot"
ITEM_KERNEL=2.6.28-omap2
ITEM_MODULES=ext3
now, we have multiboot with uboot!

Thus, it is possible to run Nemo from SD Card and using multiboot!

So, Can someone write a compelet guide to boot Nemo+Nitdroid+Maemo all from eMMC??!

Why don't you just use u-boot bootmenu - you can boot both nemo and nitdroid

Uboot bootmenu (Pali's version of Uboot) has a problem that it cant boot Nemo!(full of I/O 110 errors)

So, the only way to boot Nemo is Matan's Uboot or install it on eMMC instead of Maemo!

@melisa queen

Code:
cd /lib/modulescp -rf 2.6.28-omap1 2.6.28-omap2
i think there is type in your this command as i tried it today and it gave a error. so i modified it a bit and it worked. here is what i used.

Code:
cd /lib/modules/
cp -rf 2.6.28-omap1 2.6.28-omap2
this way it worked. Thanks for your wonderful tutorial and i want to confirm that U-boot works with multiboot with your guide.
