Well, may be just a little. It’s not even single user yet. SDHC support is work in progress. No USB yet, hence no keyboard and no network. Just console output to framebuffer or serial port.

New U-Boot build

New build for Raspberry Pi. ChangeLog:

  • New firmware
  • Improved SD card performance
  • Added USB mass storage devices support
  • Added ext2 filesystem support (painfully slow with SD card, tolerable with USB memory stick)
