Official Guides, Manuals and OS updates:
XeniumOS 2.0.1 (September 30 22:57 CEST)
This update is being released to address several minor/moderate bugs, and 2 potentially serius bugs.
It is reccomended that all users upgrade to this version of Xenium OS(info).
A few notes:
This update comes with 2 recovery.bin files. The standard recovery.bin will no longer erase bioses, settings, or eeprom backup. recovery-ResetToFactoryDefaults.bin behaves like previous updates, and will restore the chip to a factory default state.
The 2.0.0 release of XeniumOS would allow the user to use the "Recover from BIN" option in the EEprom tools with a .bin file which was not an EEprom backup, resulting in a corrupted system EEprom. Also, when the system EEprom was corrupted by this action, or any other means, XeniumOS would fail to boot properly. We would like to point out, once again, that improper and uninformed use of the EEprom tools can have destructive results, and users should proceed with caution.
In the case of a corrupted EEprom, XeniumOS will now enter a special boot mode, and will prompt you to press a button when you can read some text on a blue background. This is done so that the video can be properly initialized independant of eeprom settings.
If you have a corrupted EEprom currently, and XeniumOS will not boot, upgrading to this version of XeniumOS should allow you to recover. If this is the case, it is reccomended that you update using the CD upgrade method, and disconnect your harddrive if you had previously used the harddrive upgrade method.
