UPDATED 1/16/15 - first working image *REPLACED DEAD LINK* Trinux 1.4b http://www.4shared.com/rar/inNj_-QGce/trinux-14b.html For those who may not already know, our relentless developers finally managed to piece together the puzzle, and have some proof (yes, solid evidence) that the 'race attack' as described by fail0verflow is nearing completion. This portion of the overall 'hack' is far from finished, but is close enough to the point where it's time to branch off and begin working on the Linux portion of the over-encompassing project. At this time, ONLY 8GB SD CARDS ARE KNOWN TO WORK. You are more than welcome to try with an SDHC card of larger size, but don't cry when it doesn't work. Though, you never know, it might work! You can resize this image to work on a 2 or even a 4GB SD card by following this procedure thanks to rumblpak Step 1: Get img and extract it. open terminal and cd to directory of img with: cd /path/to/img Step 2: sudo fdisk -l trinux-1.0b.img the output of this will show three partitions where the end of the of the third partition is what we are looking at. in the case of trinux-1.0b the last line will read: trinux-1.0b.img3 2713600 3762175 ... THE IMPORTANT NUMBER IS THE 3762175, which is the last partition under the END column. Step 3: sudo truncate --size $[(3762175+1)*512] trinux-1.0b.img What you need: WiiU with Homebrew channel installed in Wii Mode. A 8GB SD Card BootMii IOS 254 https://gbadev.googlecode.com/git/nswitch/wad/IOS254-64-v65281.wad The Trinux archive from http://www.4shared.com/file/e50Lv-XAba/trinux-10b7z.html USB Keyboard (the older the better, it seems) (optional) a USB LAN adapter, if you wish to use the Internet. For the manual installation, you can extract the above archive, then the trinux_0.5.7z file inside of it, and write it to your SD card using one of the many available programs. 'dd' if you're cool, or if you prefer GUI, Win32DiskImager (sourceforge), This SD image is broken up into three sections. fat16 partition to store our app, you can place others in the sd:/apps/ folder if you'd like. ext3 Linux filesystem Linux swap space (not activated at this time) After writing the image to your SD, you will only see partition 1. Windows is incapable of reading ext3 partitions. If you are lucky enough to successfully log in, you can try activating the swap space by typing: ls /dev/mmcblk* (since the swap space is on the last partition of this device, make note of this, it will probably be /dev/mmcblk0p3 to activate type: swapon /dev/mmcblk0p3 If that succeeds, let me know and I'll issue a patch that will automount the swap partition on bootup. TO DO LIST AS PER PROJECT MANAGER TSK: -SMP support for the powerPC processor (Espresso, actually utilizing all 3 cores simultaneously instead of just "seeing" all of them -Create a much larger swap file to enhance performance even further from the previous task -Bundle Java runtime environment to increase software compatibility (my idea ) -Create better drivers for USB mass storage devices to increase compatibility -Get all (compatible) USB mass storage devices to automount (simple enough, just need to install the package "usbmount," I honestly couldn't tell you why we haven't included this in previous releases by default . -Last but not least, aid in finding a full blown CafeOS kernel exploit! Trinux will never reach its full potential without this! Once this has been found we can work on porting Trinux over to Wii U mode I RECOMMEND MANUALLY WRITING THE IMAGE TO YOUR SD CARD.
