Here are some changes to the LX's default setup that will make your life more easy.


AppManager

Disable

This will prevent the auto shutoff from kicking in, but you also lose a lot of normal LeapFrog specific functionality.

Temporarily

On Device

killall AppManager app CartManager

Permanently

touch /flags/main_app


Start Different Application

This will allow you to start a different application other than the default LeapFrog application:

echo /path/to/your/app > /flags/main_app

Caution /LF/Bulk isn't guaranteed to be mounted when the start up script is run. If your app isn't found, rcS will remove /flags/main_app to restore the default on the next boot.

Developer Mode

This turns on telnet and ftp by default, and switches to a static IP address.

touch /flags/developer

If you still want to have the automatic private ip:

touch /flags/avahi

And if you want a speedy boot (this eliminates a 6 second wait timer):

touch /flags/no8sec

Removing USB-boot-mode auto-shutdown

When USB booting, the script /usr/bin/recovery runs. On line 8 of that script is an instruction to do a forced shutdown after 600 seconds.

To remove that annoyance, simply comment-out that line:

#( sleep 600; poweroff -f ) &

Debranding

To remove the 2nd boot logo, comment out line 76 of /etc/init.d/rcS:

#imager /dev/layer0 /var/screens/LEGAL.png

To remove the startup sound, comment out line 91 of /etc/init.d/rcS:

#oss -w /var/sounds/startup.wav & # & tim end "sounds/startup.wav" &

New Kernel Copy

This may brick your Explorer and make it require a usb boot so only do this if your brave.

nandscrub -e /dev/mtd2
nandscrub /dev/mtd2
nandwrite /dev/mtd2 /usr/kernel.cbf

mtd2 is where the kernel is stored
