Re: Running Chumby8 ControlPanel on the Infocast 8" - UPDATED
Go here and download the file mentioned directly under "updating with a USB flash drive".
Copy the file you downloaded (update.zip) to a clean USB flash drive. Do not rename it, extract it, or put it inside any folders.
Turn your Infocast off using the power button on the back.
Plug the USB flash drive into one of the USB ports on the back of the Infocast.
Press and hold your finger on the screen, and without releasing it, press the power button to turn the Infocast on again.
Keep your finger on the screen until you are asked to calibrate the Infocast. Finish that process, and you should see the Special Options screen.
Press the Install Updates button.
Press the Install From USB Drive button.
The firmware installation will now begin (the Infocast will reboot halfway through the process). Be sure not to turn the power off or remove the USB drive until the installation is completely finished.
Your Infocast will now be running the Chumby 8 firmware, software, and control panel.
Thanks! This is very helpful.
Does the Infocast fully think it's a Chumby8? What control panel is on it? Does the browser work, and do all the apps work?
