Thanks to Oz_Paulb or the LBA48 source (interesting stuff) - we'll be implementing this into the X2 kernel from source level so it may be tweeked a bit - will let you know how soon
Also working on a couple of things like the no dvd boot on new hd issue and another couple of things we've spotted in the New Bios Ideas section (yes we do read that)
We are also waiting on Ben Jeremy to supply some better FTP code as the X2 ftpd isnt the best.
Will release 4979 as soon as its ready. It will be 512k. If you want LBA48 256 X2 bios - use xbtool and 4977.
This will probably be the last X2 bios. Future Bios's will be X3 amd they will work a little different as X3 design has a hardware feature that works in conjunction with the bios so will be used on X3 hardware only (the hardware is backwards compatible of course). Details are still sketchy as we keep changing our minds on features and get new ideas all the time - but once 4979 is done we are 100% committed to getting X3 finished as a hardware and software product.
Dont expect daily news updates or pre orders. The week its finished you will have full details and will be able to buy it immediatley with no waiting.
If you have any input into what features you would like to see in the last X2 bios - or even X3 bios / hardware - please post here as we're monitering.
