Apparently it's a Linux kernel that serves one purpose: flash files.

Doc is now in first thread :-) If you need something more write me.

Excellent :-) Does this have any relevance to OMAP2 devices?

I think first part yes (sending X-Loader, it is same on all TI boards), but second part (sending NOLO) depnds on X-Loader image... So If you mean N8x0 devices I do not know if they use same X-Loader protocol and if they support cold-flashing...

If ape-algo and cmt-algo are Linux-based, is the source available? I realise the non-GPL code might not be available, but if Nokia has done some R&D regarding cutting down the kernel to just what is needed, that might be helpful.

Pali, since the time I first notice you being active in this forum you have got power-kernel out of unmaintained limbo, made it vastly more feature-complete, got open getbootstate backported to Maemo 5, and have near as I can tell started updating bootmenu and uboot as well. And now this.

Where do I click to shower you with donation money?
